Questions & Answers for Couture Colour Luxeblend™ Crème Hair Colour With Pequi Glossing Serum — Light Brown

Question
is this a "warm" shade of brown
The color doesn't look like there is a red,warm tone to it, is there one? Many light browns tend to have warm tones to them, the color choices to these colors don't say warm, neutral, ash. I tend to have alot of red in my hair when I color and trying to decide if this color will be a good match. I have used dark blondes or lt. browns in the past and usually always have red/golden that comes through.

Yes, it has a good amount of golden highlights in it. It's a beautiful color. Everyone is going to get a bit of a different result. This color seems to work well on many.

That was my concern initially, too. It DOES have red and gold tones. Multidimensional and very beautiful. This is the only at-home kit I've ever used that I've been completely happy with. It even beats the salon colour procedures I've had in the past. VERY nice product!

There are two choices of light brown. There is the Golden Light brown (which is warmer) and then Light Brown. I used the light brown and it is a cooler shade. I do not look good in warm light browns so I was happy that the light brown is more of an ash brown.

There is a shade called Light Golden Brown, which would have the reds and golds in it. This (Light Brown) is supposed to be a natural shade of brown without any reds or golds. The first time I colored with it, it was OK. The color came out lighter than the box though, when the rule of thumb is usually you will come out a little darker than the box. I was disappointed with the lighter shade, but it was OK. It started fading out after 2 weeks, though. When I bought the 2nd box of Light Brown, it was a disaster. My roots are an orangey, brassy gold. I hate it! I was a huge fan of the Fekkai Salon Color that Sephora carried until they replaced it with the Couture Color a few months ago. Fekkai's Light Brown shade was a true natural brown... such a rich and pretty color, with no golds or reds whatsoever. My natural color has a little red/gold in it, and the Fekkai neutralized the reds. I buy all of my beauty products from Sephora, but I can't endorse the Couture Color. I had to purchase a box of the Fekkai color this weekend to undo the brassy mess that came from the Couture Color light brown.

I found that the Light Brown did not have any red in it. However, it did have a lot of gold in it on me. Too much gold. Looks a little greenish in certain light. I have gotten this result before with an "ash" color. I am happy that it didn't pull red as that is hard to get out, but the gold/greenish hue is not good and I will need to re-dye my hair.

It might not return your hair to light brown. As other reviewers mentioned this color turns out slightly darker then picture on the box. Best thing to do is walk over to Sephora store and ask them for advice. They usually have someone that is an expert and will compare your hair to color swatches and give you possible end result. It worked for me!

My hair is shoulder length/fine and I always end up discarding one-fourth of the bottle. If your hair is very thick, you will definitely need two boxes. If it is fine, you may be able to use just one box. Buy two, mix up one. If it's not enough, use the second box. If you don't need the second box, you'll have it on hand for the next time. And you'll definitely use this colour kit again. It produces beautiful results. Good luck!

Question
Will I need more than one box of color?
Help?

In the past, I've used drugstore haircolor brands and had to use two boxes to ensure complete saturation because I have longer hair that reaches the middle of my back. Would I need two boxes of Luxeblend?

My hair has been professionally colored (highlights and lowlights blending with natural color) and I would like to know if it's safe to color over highlights and lowlights and if it will naturally neutralize any brassy tones without needing to use a 'toner'.

I have a fair amount of gray hairs (more than 40), my natural color is a light/medium ash-y brown and the highlights/lowlights range from wheat to golden blonde.

Would you recommend this hair color? and if so, what shade?

Is the color permanent or semi-permanent?

Thanks!

HI Christina,

Here are some answers to your questions.

If your hair is past your shoulder blades or very thick, you may want to have 2 boxes on hand just in case. There is a generous amount of colour in the kit, but everyone's hair is different.

If you have heavy highlights, we would recommend that you see a salon professional to have your highlights "filled" before going a darker shade. That is corrective colour. However, if you only have a few highlights and lowlights, LuxeBlend should cover them with no problem.

Yes, LuxeBlend gives great gray coverage, especially for an Ammonia-Free Hair Colour.

It is permanent hair colour.

The Light Brown Luxe Blend shade is an ashier light brown tone, but is multidimensional with highlights and lowlights in it, so it sounds like a good match. Just remember that single process colour is different from a salon highlighted look.

If you like your salon highlights, you can use LuxeBlend as a base colour, and go to to your colourist for highlights on top of it.

I have intermittent strands of gray, which are highly resistant to colour. This product will cover the gray initially but I shampoo daily and find that after about a month the gray will start to show again. I usually wait about 7 weeks between colourings, so I just deal with the gray reappearing. However, you might consider one of those touch-up colouring pens if you want to refrain from colouring too much. Good luck!

Read the ingredients on the box. It does have a form of ammonia in it. The salon I go to uses a hair colour that was initially marketed as ammonia free. Turns out it does have ammonia. My guess is that it's the same with this product. My stylist said there has to be ammonia in the product to lift colour. Semi-permanent colour will only coat the exterior of the hair shaft. That said, I've used the Luxeblend product and I'm very happy with it. It conditions very nicely, the colour is true, and it lasts well beyond 28 shampoos. Best at-home colouring kit I've ever used!

I'd recommend contacting the customer service on the Couture Colour website. They know their product best. I have intermittent gray strands that are highly resistant to colouring. This product will cover them, but I shampoo daily so after about 4 weeks, the gray starts to show through again. It does produce beautiful colour results and I'm very happy with it. I've had my hair coloured in the salon in the past and they would only use semipermanent colour. They always coloured it too dark and the colour would fade too quickly. I'm much happier with this product.

There seems to be a big difference between this shade and the dark blonde. I have a lot of red in my hair so I want to tone that down but this shade looks too dark and kind of dull. My natural shade is a dark blonde/light brown w/red tones. Trying to decide which shade.

I have dark ash brown hair. I tried the dark blonde and it was too light. I was hesitant to try light brown b/c other brands of light brown have always been too dark. This product's light brown shade is PERFECT. It has gold and red highlights in it and produces a beautiful shade of true light brown. Initially, I used the all-over colour instructions. Now, when I recolour, I do the roots for 20 minutes and then use colour on the lengths which remains for 10-15 minutes as the instructions for touch-up indicate. It always produces lovely results. Good luck!

The Dark Golden Blonde sounds like a close match to your natural colour.
If your hair tends to "pull" red, it will do so with any colour that you apply, so keep that in mind.

You can always start with the Dark Golden Blonde and if it is too light for you, you can go a shade darker to the Light Brown next time. It is always easier to go darker later.

You may want to try the strand test (directions in kit) to make sure that you are happy with the colour before you do your whole head.
