Why we use Ammonia based colour over MEA based colour brands.

MEA + AMMONIA – For years there has been a debate between ๐€๐Œ๐Œ๐Ž๐๐ˆ๐€ & ๐Œ๐„๐€ ๐›๐š๐ฌ๐žd ๐œ๐จ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ ๐ฌ๐ฒ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ฆ๐ฌ.

When a colour DOES NOT contain Ammonia, they usually REPLACE it with just another chemical compound such as ๐‘€๐ธ๐ด.

Ammonia & MEA provide the alkalinity needed to penetrate the colour molecules and to help the peroxide lighten the existing pigments with the hair. ๐‘จ๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’๐’๐’Š๐’‚ is a gas-based chemical, so it evaporates in a short time and leaves the hair completely, while ๐‘ด๐‘ฌ๐‘จ๐’” are a liquid or oil-based, oxidates the hair long after the client has left the salon.
