* Cationic:

An ion or group of ions having a positive charge and characteristically moving toward the negative electrode in electrolysis. An ion with net positive charge, having more protons than electrons.


- Cationic polymers remain on the hair via electrostatic interactions.

- They are attracted to the negatively charged, damaged protein sites on the hair.

- This positive/negative interaction prevents them from being removed. ​​

Opening cuticle: Apply 20 Vol. developer directly on the grey hair with cotton. Leave for 10-15 minutes, dry and apply the desired tone mixed with base without washing hair.


Pre-pigmentation: Use bases with no developer in the most difficult areas. Then apply the desired tones mixed with the base.
