The Benefits Of Redken Shades EQ
Refresh: Use Shades EQ Gloss to refresh faded mid-shaft & ends (Zones 2 and 3), while processing permanent color at the regrowth area. You can also use Redken Shades EQ to restore color and tone to highlights.
Tone: When it comes to counteracting unwanted tones in the hair, Shades EQ is a must-have for keeping hair color toned and beautiful. Always consider the exposed undertones visible at the target level. To counteract undertones, select a shade level with tonal value opposite to the undertone exposed at the target level. Remember, opposites neutralize. When in doubt, consult the color wheel!
Correct: Shades EQ is an amazing tool to utilize during color correction appointments. Use Shades EQ to fill over-lightened hair before a tintback service. You can even correct uneven, brassy or overly vibrant tones.
Add Dimension: Shades EQ can be used to lowlight hair when more depth and dimension is desired.
Gloss: For any salon guest, Shades EQ is the perfect choice for creating amazing shine. It can be used to enhance, enrich, change, match, tone down or intensify natural or color-treated hair.
