Helpful tips when using MUVO toners.

Wait before you create

Our toners are developed to support your new look. It’s advised you allow your hair colour to settle before interfering unnecessarily. 

Maintain your mane

For blondes, MUVO Ultra Blonde toner should only be used once or twice a week.  For rose tones, MUVO Ultra Rose can enhance a colourists work long after your last visit, if used only as a top-up or refresher. Overuse with both Blonde and Rose ranges can sometimes lead to unwanted murky tones. Balance is key here.

Time does matter

Knowing how long to leave our toners in your hair is important... for blondes seeking to remove yellow tones with MUVO Ultra Blonde, it will depend on the current state of your individual hair heath & colour history v’s desired results.

Generally speaking, if your hair is bleach blonde (on scalp) and is lifted to the maximum level you will need to leave in for approx. 5-10 minutes. But if your hair is partially highlighted, we recommend to leave in for approx. 2-5 minutes.

For the adventurous rose inspired hair colours, desired results will determine how long you leave MUVO Ultra Rose in your hair for. Generally speaking you will get more predictable results on evenly highlighted hair. For a light pastel pink tone leave in for approx. 1-2 minutes. For a deeper more vibrant result leave in for approx. 5-10 minutes.

The solution may be as simple as cleansing your hair and avoiding any other further professional visits to remove. If you’re a little unsure and have build up on the hair, there are numerous professional colour removers on the market. These can be applied and monitored with the watchful eye of your stylist.

Avoid the same steps that got you here

Keep in mind that Ultra Blonde & Ultra Rose will deposit colour onto the hair cuticle… so if you want to play it safe, we recommend that you dilute MUVO toners with MUVO Totally Naked (stripped bare - completely free of colour) until you build awareness of the product and feel confident enough to achieve what you want.
