Ash color is always relevant regardless of fashion. Versatile shades allow you to achieve a noble look for both men and women. The palette of ash tones is very diverse: from light gray to graphite. But before choosing a shade, you need to consider the structure of the hair and the base pigment, age, skin and eye color. It is the analysis of all factors that will help to achieve a harmonious image.
Ash tones are presented in the lines of all cosmetic brands. The composition of paints includes caring components, which, in addition to the desired color, help to restore and improve the condition of the curls. Therefore, the more useful additives and fewer aggressive chemical components, the less harmful the dyeing, and the hair will not experience severe stress during the procedure.
The ash color is very complex and moody. An improperly selected composition can lead to disastrous results, especially when the procedure is performed independently at home. Here you can get green, purple and pink strands, which you can then get rid of only in the salon.
Our experts have selected 12 ash paints of different price categories from the whole variety of cosmetic products, which have shown excellent results and have become the best today.
