When to Use

HI LIFTS colors are the ideal choice when you are trying to create light level blondes, without the use of lightener. Because they are permanent color, you can use them on virgin hair for one step lifting and depositing.

PRAVANA’s HI LIFTS colors have a higher level of alkalinity than our other permanent colors so can soften the hair more which leads to more lightening of natural pigment.

We recommend using these on natural levels 6 or higher. At a level 6 you will expose a natural underlying pigment of orange/yellow. HI LIFTS Violet Blue is equipped with just the right pigments to neutralize those tones and create an ideal blonde. Notice that at a level 5, the underlying pigment will be a deeper, truer orange. HI LIFTS do not contain enough deep blue to counteract that tone. Starting at a level this dark, will result in warmer-than-desired results.

Extra Credit

Base Breaking is slightly softening or shifting the natural level of the hair to help diminish any lines of demarcation. The term is usually referring to an application on just the natural outgrowth of a client who is otherwise, already lightened. Use Zero Lift or 10 vol for 5-10 minutes on wet or dry hair. Watch for desired results. Keep in mind that permanent color will lift and then deposit. Leaving the color on for longer than 10 minutes will begin to expose too much underlying pigment.
