Want to try out a new color before you take the plunge? Our Daily and Deep Conditioners are a great way to get a sneak peek of a new fantasy color. Here’s how to get the most out of them:
Step one: Pick a color
If you’re new to fantasy color, or new to oVertone, we seriously recommend the sample page (linked above) as your first stop. Starting out with a sample or two instead of full-sized bottles can save you time and money in the long run, especially since we can’t accept returns of product that’s been opened or used. Sampling and then going for full-size conditioners once you’ve found your perfect shade is your best bet! If you’re eyeing one of our Custom Color Kits, grab a sample of each color in the kit you want. Itching to try out a combo of your own? Mix-and-match. Just looking for one color but can’t quite decide which intensity will look best? You can try the same color in Pastel and Vibrant, or Vibrant and Extreme. We have samples of every deep and daily shade we carry – that’s 30 colors to play with.
Step two: Strand test
Our sample sizes are perfect for strand testing. Unless you are rocking a buzz-cut, it is not enough product to saturate all of your hair and will result in a muted, patchy, or uneven color. You need to saturate your locks completely – take a look at this blog post for an idea of how much product you’ll need. Testing a shade from a Custom Color Kit, or mixing your own with multiple colors? Check out this blog post on how to customize, and try out some of the different options. You’ll have enough conditioner for a few different tests, so try a few different combinations and see what you like best! Deciding between different versions of the same color? Test on a couple different strands of hair, and make a mental note of which shade is on which strand.
