I have just bleaching the ends (~3 inches) of my hair to around a level 8 blonde. Ns purchased Wella CT 18 toner to get it to an ashier shade before I dye it all blue. The instructions speak to for max 20 vol developer yet I have actually a huge bottle that 30 vol cream developer and would like to protect against purchasing an ext if possible.

You are watching: How to make 20 volume developer

Does anyone have actually recommendations for diluting a cream developer? I have actually seen conflicting answers around tap v. Filtered water or making use of conditioner, etc. And as ns am pretty new to this, to be worried about making the not correct call.

Thanks!

TL;DR I have a ton of 30 vol cream developer and need 20 vol. What is the best method for diluting cream developer?

I think your ideal bet would certainly be to simply pay the $2 for the 20 volume. The only method I’ve checked out it diluted is by mix it with a lower volume developer (in this case you could mix through a 10 volume). I’m not a hairstylist, however I’m wondering if mixing conditioner or anything rather may reason an unwanted chemical reaction?

I to be told you deserve to mix it with 10 vol yet it will certainly make the shade fade faster.

i’m quiet in cosmetology college so in additionally still learning however from what i know, mixing through water won’t make it lower volume. The only method to perform that is come mix it v 10 volume, in which instance you’d need to buy a new bottle anyway. I recognize its no cheap, however it is a lot of cheaper than going to a hairstylist later to try and save whatever is left.

Thank you!

It’s still pretty golden for just how light the is and also I’m simply coming off of having green hair — traumatized by the fading procedure and really don’t want to end up with environment-friendly again haha. I’m very brand-new to hair colour so maybe I’m taking the not correct approach! any kind of guidance appreciated.
