Arctic Mist is a diluter and light toner. It is used to create lighter shades and pastels with AF’s other colors. **It will not turn your hair white unless it is already very lightened. If you are aiming for white hair, the process can be damaging, and we suggest you get professional help to create that look.
Do you need Arctic Fox diluter?
If you are going to dilute a color, we recommend using Arctic Mist since it is specifically formulated to work with our colors. Conditioners may contain oils or silicone, which can prevent the dye from taking properly, which can occasionally result in a patchy application and/or unpredictable results.
Can you dye your hair with diluter?
Our Arctic Mist diluter is not a dye or lightening product. It has no pigment, and if applied on its own will have no effect on the hair color – while it has a slight toning property, it will only help maintain a white hair color if the hair is already lightened to that level, and will not further lighten the hair.
Will Arctic Fox ruin my blonde hair?
If it was a semi or demi- permanent, dark, and a long lasting formula, it most likely will need to be bleached first. These would be dyes like Arctic Fox, Punky Color and Special Effects. Unless your hair is course, extremely dry or damaged, then you need to consult a professional.
Can I use conditioner instead of diluter?
However, I found out that the conditioner does work as a diluter, but you have to brush on EVERY single swipe. You can’t just smush the hair color or squidge (stole that word from this board and love it, so thanks!)
What can I mix with hair dye to make more?
Always use a white conditioner. Avoid colors containing different dyes, which may come from ingredients that may not go well with your dye. You will use one-third of a cup of conditioner, so you won’t need much. In the same cup you put the conditioner in, add a big spoonful of the desired hair color.
Does conditioner affect hair dye?
Does Conditioner Affect Hair Dye? The conditioner doesn’t affect the hair dye itself, but it affects the way the color is taking on your hair. Because the hair is too soft and clean, the hair dye doesn’t get into the hair follicles. Meaning that the color won’t last very long.
