NOTE: Picture is when I was using the 8NN, and getting highlights.Last year.

I use the 9NN with 20 vol. developer to cover (white) hair, and it comes out beautiful very, very light blonde.Just remember when mixing your color do not use too much developer or the color will not be as rich. It is better to err on the side of less developer. All I have to to now is go the my stylist once or twice a year, for low lights to give some deminsion when I want it. When I was in my 40's and 50's I used the 8NN, (also a very beautiful color) and got highlights. Now that my hair is totally white it is easier to go more blonde and just get lowlights when needed because you can't see the roots as much with blonde hair. Remember when you are first trying to color your grey hair always use the NN to cover grays.I leave my color on for about 55 min., and shampoo once and cond. Another tip is to try to get as close as you can to your childhood color for your base, and either get highlights or low lights to compliment. I have been using this hair color line for over a decade, and I cannot even tell you the amount of money I have saved being able to do my roots at home.
ProsDoes not fade - use Redken Magnetics Shampoo and Cond. Hair is healthy and shiny.

Great color and coverage!
Lovely shade on the cusp of blonde and brown, where it can get muddy- instead it's rich and reflective, and truly neutral in tone (not too ashy, not too warm!). Really great grey coverage. Very easy to control mixture with brush application- perhaps a bit thick for bottle use. Always use with Goldwell developer (I've experimented...) for best, consistent results. Love this product!

Best accurate coverage/gray
Using 4NN, 5NN, 5MB with The Goldwell 20 volume developer to cover gray and match very dark almost black hair. Superior results. I switched over from Koleston Perfect as that was pulling too red on my roots and didn't seem to have the staying power that it used to. The Goldwell gave superior coverage, shine and the perfect natural ash tone without being too dark. I can always count on Sleekshop to deliver very fresh authentic products.

My hair supposed to be black but I suspected using too many home products with mild bleach (ash brown) that my color is not turning back to natural black anymore. The last few times with the home products (black or dark color) only worked for 2 weeks and I went to the professional but it only work for a month. The color faded. Will this product help? I like 4R and will it make it worst? or I should be safe and use 2A or 4 B? Please help and advice. Thank you!
My Goldwell really delivers! The color is right on. It leaves my hair soft and conditioned. It lasts longer than the last professional color I used. I’ve used professional color for years because the color I found on the shelf at the grocery store dried my hair out every time. The professional product I used before Goldwell took forty-five minutes for the color to “takeâ€. Goldwell takes 25 minutes at the most. Most important, though, I love the way my hair looks and feels.

If you want to go back to your natural color I would go with the 2n which is closest to black. Also color does fade depending on what products you use to wash your hair and if you wash your hair with hot water, also using hot tools on your hair play a big part in color fading. Goldwell color is very good I love it. If you are just depositing color use 10 developer. I hope this helps.

Are you covering grey and only coloring root growth? Are you dark brown and trying to go darker? Are you natural black and trying to lighten up with the 4R mahogany? If you are trying to cover grey and match your natural hair color, you need at least 50% of and Neutral "N or NN" base in your mix to cover. The other 50% can be your desired tone R for Mahogany or B for Ash. The number represents the level of darkness or lightness...the lower the number, the darker the color. If covering grey you will need 20 volume developer. If you are dark brown and trying to go darker, you will need a lower number and 10 volume developer to deposit the pigment. If you are natural black and are trying to lighten up to a dark brown with Mahogany highlights, you will need to use a level 4 or 5 with a 30 or 40 volume developer. Reds are the most difficult pigments to keep. Make sure you wash the dye out with cool water until the water runs clear and use a color safe shampoo and conditioner. If you are trying to go lighter, stay away from the ash and matt colors as they will tend to have a dark cast in most light. The reds/golds/coppers will appear lighter. If you are still having trouble keeping the pigment in your hair, it may be extremely damaged/porous from previous bleach use and you may need to deep condition it and treat it with a "filler" before it will hold color. Sometimes, until your hair is back to a healthy state it is better to use a conditioning demi-permanent color rather than assault it further with harsh chemicals. Only you know the severity of your hair's condition so I would choose wisely. Good luck!

If you already coloured your hair with permanent hair colour it's not a good idea to use permanent colour again. To correct and re-fresh hair colour you will need a toning hair due like Colorance, not Topchic

What developer should I buy to use with color 3n . I have dark hair with caramel highlights and I just want to touch up my gray. Thank you ☺ï¸
That depends on your natural hair colour and how many levels you need to lift. If you want to make your hair darker you will need a 20 vol (6%) Developer (because you have gray hair)

now that 6ngb and 7ngb are discontinued I am trying to recreate. how much n in proportion to g and b or gb colors?
I'm sorry but I don't use those colors, I use the 6KG and 7KG , although the 7KG has been discontinued, very sad about that.
on November 7, 2017
from Orem, Utah
Usually the first letter means about 70% of pigments and the second - about 30%, the third is just additional colour nuance. So 6ngb has 70% of natural pigments and 30% of gold pigments

How do I get my dark roots to match my ends when I go natural blonde
Generally the hair at the roots or crown area should be darker than the hair at your ends even after going natural blonde. Hair isn't a single color all the way from root to end or it looks flat, dull, and forced. When you have regrowth only touch up the roots with fresh color. Brushing the fresh color into the new growth and then diffusing the color into the existing hair color should allow it blend naturally. Don't touch up the root color and then pull the color all the way through to the ends otherwise the ends end up either too light or too dark over time. I find that my hair gets too blonde over time so I will touch up new grown going a level down and about the last ten minutes pull any remaining color in my pot through to my ends to put some more low light dimension back into my hair. Remember you want your color to have dimension and not look like a single flat one color job all the way through.

If you are a natural blonde why would you have dark roots. if you let your hair grow out get a color close to the color of your ends so your roots and the body of your hair will blend .

Do you want to be a natural blonde or your hair is natural blonde without colouring? If you have dark roots I suppose you will need to high-lift your hair first

i am using 6b with a little 6a and 6n to cover the grey, if I wanted my hair a little more caramel what color should i use
we need to know your natural color but assuming it is 6a or darker, you need actually need to lighten your hair to a 7 and tone your hair accordingly based upon your natural undeundertone. Probably something like an 7mb or 7a
Atx girl
on September 8, 2017
6b means beige pigments, 6a - ash and 6n - natural (brown). If you want to add caramel choose shades with letter "g" (gold) in it

That depends on your natural hair colour and how many levels you need to lift. If you want to make your hair darker you will need a 20 vol Developer (for the hair with gray) or 10 vol (without gray)

I want to color my hair a rose gold. Has anyone had success with using 8RP - Genuine Rose paired with a blonde color? Perhaps a 7 blonde? Just looking for recommendations. I am looking for more blonde and less pink, something a bit more subtle. My hair is naturally dark blonde. Thanks!
Success depends on how correct you choose the shade and what your natural colour is. If you have natural blonde hair and you want just add more vibrancy and light shade you don't need a permanent colour. try toning colour like Colorance Goldwell

Hello, I planned on trying out this product to cover my greys. The hair stylist who used to color my hair used foils and mixed my black hairs with browns and left some greys visible. I experimented with this technique by myself using tints of nature, but heard really good things about this product online and thought about trying this out instead. My stylist moved out of town and I wanted to experiment on my own. Do I need to purchase another product to mix with this color ? If so, what is that. Thanks for your help. Lara
For gray hair, make sure to use the "NN" series, as this provide gray coverage.

My husband wants his grey covered, but not completely. His hair is dark brown, but a 4 or 5 makes it look a little too "black". Do you have a product that is softer so he doesn't have that "dyed" look? His hair in the back is mainly dark with a little salt. The sides and top are silver. He wants a salt and pepper look on the top and sides like the back is. Thanks for any help!
Permanent hair colour probably not the best idea in this case. May be you should try special colouring products developed for men's hair

I am using the 6NN Topchic color for grey regrowth. I also applied the 6NN semi-perm color on old growth to even out color tone. I bought the 6GB to lighten around my face. How would I apply this as a low-lite product? What developer should I use? Will 6% 20 vol do the trick. Is there any problem with an application such as this on old growth hair that has just been treated with the goldwell semi-perm color? Also what would be the timing for low-lights?
If you already coloured your hair with 6NN you will get zero result with 6GB. The colour can not make coloured hair lighter, you need bleached products for that
