A FEW THINGS I HAVE LEARNED TO DO MY OWN COLOR AT HOME!Oct 05, 2013
Goldwell Topchic ratio is 1:1. . . .50/50. . .this is what my long time hairdresser told me! She told me because she was moving and was giving me instructions so I can do my own hair at home. Not very many hairdressers tell you their little secrets! I have been doing my own hair for over 1 year and comes out salon gorgeous! I love Goldwell colors but this year I decided to go lighter than the 4NN I have been using because it comes off like a soft black or darkest brown! She gave me instructions what to do. We are great friends besides just being my hairdresser. I recently got my hair highlighted from a local salon to lightened it up for the summer. Goldwell browns are very dark when applied! The dark brown comes off like a soft black or(darkest brown) the medium brown comes off like a very dark brown and the light brown comes off like a dark brown . . . so on and so on! Now it is perfect! I have no problem managing my new hair growth and doing my roots monthly after my highlighting. I am forever calling my hairdresser friend when I want to mix a new color. For anyone that is new at this the NN means for gray or white hair . . .helps the color take better for root application.. . . . .this is what I was told! If you are not gray or white you can use the same colors but they should have the N after it otherwise white or gray people use NN for it to process correctly! You can mix colors but always have one with an NN in there if you have white or gray roots like I have stated. The higher the number the lighter the color! I Actually I mix half 5NN 25% and half 4NN 25% with the 50% of 6% 20 volumizer. You should do 50 color and 50 volumizer. I also need to leave it on longer about 40 minutes instead of 20 to 25. . . .I have resistant roots and so white.. .. before washing the color out! What ever your numbers are just make it always 50% volumizer to what ever your color would be. You can mix colors and do anything you want but always 50% of the volumizer. You can mix 2 colors 20/20 and the put 40 of the volumizer to make it 50/50! You do need to get applicator bottles. I bought a Goldwell one and did not like it.. . .so light and flimsy! I actually just use application bottles from Sally's beauty supply that have measurements on the side of the bottle... .. then you can be preside. They are heavy and cheaper than the Goldwell bottles. I use a pointy squirt bottle, because it is to hard for me to brush it on myself!. Comes out perfect everytime. Do not color your whole head just roots . . .. if your color fades after time from sun or from a highlighting just bring the color through only about 3 minutes! I have saved $75 a month from not going to a salon now that I am doing it myself. My color last all month without fading (leaving it on a full 40 minutes) and it covers my white roots beautifully and my hair is silky and lovely! I have been using Goldwell for years! I do buy often from Sleekhair.com when they have sales and free shipping! Otherwise I check Amazon for a seller that are trustworthy and reasonable. Hope I have been helpful!

Best Color, Will Never Use Anything ElseOct 17, 2011
I used to be a die-hard Aveda fan - I loved the colors, but unfortunately they fade extremely quickly on my hair. My stylist switched to using Goldwell colors, and I will never turn back.
My hair has a tendency to go brassy, so for browns we use 4,5, or 6 NN (depending on what time of year it is)
When I want a beautiful, bright, intense true red, we use the MaxReds collection 6RR and highlight with either 7RR or 6RR mixed with RR-mix.
All of these colors are amazing at coloring gray hair too. If you look on Goldwell's site, they have excellent descriptions of their colors and swatches.
The mixing ratio, according to Goldwell, is 1:1. I use 10% developer but if you have a decent amount of gray, you're going to need a 20% developer.
EDIT: I noticed a few comments mentioning that they dyed their hair using JUST RR-mix. No. DO NOT DO THAT. Let me clarify: RR-mix is a mix-in, NOT a true dye. It just makes the color more intense for the short-term. It will wash out pretty quickly, so it's mostly for a week-long pop of color on top of already vibrant color.

Love GoldwellOct 25, 2013
"Queen of Hearts"
I use to work as a hairstylist so I have tried and continue to try everything. Nothing beats Goldwell haircolor. The line offers great shades, it conditions the hair and cover grey well. In addition, the color tends to keep its vibrancy and smells great while your working with it. The reason why most salons don't carry it is because it is expensive and they think that the average consumer won't know the difference between other cheaper coloring systems (eg. Wella, Logics, Matrix...) and Goldwell but once you try it you will definitely know the difference and won't use anything else. Of all the lines it has one of the most neutral color balanced bases out there and if you know how to create color you can create any shade with a well balanced neutral base. Its rich and conditioning to the hair once its on and washes off clean. To keep the hair in tip top shape a stylist is encouraged to do color balancing which uses Colorance developer and Colorance corresponding hair color. Color balancing keeps the shade and the vibrancy in your hair like the first day that you colored it. If you have not tried Goldwell I encourage you to find a salon that carries it. Its more expensive but definitely worth it. Then go on Amazon to buy your shade and do your salon color at home. Use a colorist only for the hard stuff like going blonde, correcting color or changing shades when its over two levels. Good luck

Will not use any other hair colorMay 20, 2011
I have been using Goldwell Hair Color for over 10 years now and will not use anything else! I am half asian, so my hair is very very dark (level 2) and I color my hair blond using nothing but Goldwell Topchic and lightening products. If you are a stylist then you know that asian hair is one of the most difficult to lighten b/c it automatically pulls red when lightened. I have tried EVERY product out there and nothing comes close to the lightening by color power of the top end topchic colors. I've read another post on here that claimed the the product 'didn't work and didn't changer her hair color at all' and all I can say is that IF you are not trained on how to use professional hair coloring products, stick with the products you can purchase at locations like Sally's Beauty Supply b/c there is NO WAY these products (or any professional hair coloring products for that matter) will not change your hair color. Unless you forget to include the developer! LOVE LOVE LOVE GOLDWELL!

True to color and covers wellFeb 13, 2014
Bought this shade after I had the same color done in hair salon. Go by the instruction from Goldwell website, I mixed this color with topchic 6%20 vol developer lotion, it covers my gray just like salon does.! It is worth the money!
