NEUTRAL A blend of all primary colors, resulting in neutral. Available in 10 levels, Level 1 (Blue Black) to level 10 (Light Blond). The neutral family is useful in determining the natural level of hair. If the hair falls between two levels, choose the darker one. When coloring gray hair, neutrals used alone or added to other COLORISSIMO or RENCOLOR total families give great results. Neutrals will accentuate the natural highlights and the predominant tones on natural or tinted hair. ASH A mixture of blues and violets. Available in levels 4 to 10. The pewter shades of 6P and 8P are included in this family. The ash family is useful for toning down brassy and unwanted orange and red tones. Ash tones are not recommended for pure white hair. On “salt and pepper” hair it will tone down the “pepper” color, and the salt will appear more silver gray. The blues and violets of ash are an important part of many color corrections. Ash levels, being drab without the reds and golds, appear darker than other tonal families in the same level. GOLD A base of reds and yellows with yellow being the predominate tone.
