Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a boost of shine and toning I’ve used this protein filler to boost my hair after going from red to blonde. It puts a good level of shine back into the hair and works well as a toner. Does make my hair sort of brittle/dry though, so I wouldn’t recommend on hair that has been over-processed

Coloring bleached hair back to a light golden brown, is this red filler to dark to use?

I've done the bleach process twice and have some bleached spots and light orange spots. I'm planning to dye my hair a lighter golden brown. I was told to add a drop of the red protein filler into the dye itself. Will this be enough to prevent green hair?

Asked by: tbreton0616
In my experience, no. I had platinum hair and covered all strands with red protein filler before coloring brown. It’s not a strong coloring agent (more like a watery tint) and I wouldn’t trust only one drop to do the job.  Hope that helps!

I went from 9 to 7, and used ash because it "pulls warm." Ended up ok, but splotchy with greenish gray cast. If I use warm brown, will it make a 7n or 6n look red? Is WB too dark for a level 7?

Asked by: Murphy07
If your trying to go red , you have to think what is my natural color ? If its a brown, how brown ? dark, light , medium . Light and medium you can pull off with auburn colors , dark brown you will get brown hair with auburn highlights . . . unless you bleach your hair through the color spectrum and stop it when it turns to the color you want. The protein filler i use is red and i put it in my conditioner bottle and shake it up . So my last product i use in the shower will refresh my auburn hair color as this filler will not affect natural color hair . Hope this helps .

Asked by: Felisha123
It depends on the light blonde shade if it’s yellowish you need the warm brown and blue mixed. If it strawberryish you need the greenish and brown color.

the tips of my hair are orange blonde & the top of my hair is very dark brown with an orange tone to it Bc I dyed it red a year ago .I want to go back to brown but I’m not sure which filler to use?last time I dyed it brown it faded

Asked by: JenniM238
Apply brown filler to clean wet hair for thirty minutes. Rinse off, towel dry, then apply color..I would use 1/2 5N and 1/2 6N. Apply to roots and pull through for 30 minutes. Shampoo and use a good conditioner. Use a color safe shampoo. You will have to pull through ends each time you re-color adding a shot of filler to the color when you pull through the ends.

How do I know what kind of Protein Filler to buy. I bleached my hair ash blonde with Wella Color Charmer Powder Lightener and Used T18 toner. I know tried to color it back to my natural brown and it turned out grey. HELP!!

Asked by: Melanie2020
If you had tried to dye your hair back to brown from a platinum blonde, all of the underlying pigments would of been bleached out too. You’ll need warmth, red to counteract this ash (blue) that you had put into your hair. Although it will not look like your natural hair color most likely, it will look like a better brown. It may still be a bit ashy since you didn’t fill the hair I’m guessing but it will look a bit less muddy.

my hair is currently faded black (medium brown roots) i am going for black with a tint of purple. would one of these fillers added to black hair dye help get the purple tint?

Asked by: pumpkin10
No, this isn’t hair dye. The purple is similar to a toner, it aids in removing brassy hues.

Should I use this before I dye my hair back to brown after having it bleached?

Asked by: PtwnSammy7
I would ask your beautician . I use this in my conditioner bottle, i pour it in there then shake it up. . . it keeps my red color hair from fading so much. But i would definitely ask my beautician about that and if you don't have one (a regular one) you can always call hair salons that do coloring and they don't mind answering these types of questions . Good Luck.

So I am in the muddy stage now. I had my hair blonde for a while without maintaining it and I decided to go black so I bought a box dye and did it, it looked great but after a few washes faded into a blue/gray that I HATE. How can I go back to black? :(

Asked by: alexandra05
On clean damp hair, liberally apply brown filler. Leave on for 30 minutes and rinse off, not shampoo. Towel dry hair and use the darkest brown color with 1/2 oz. black. No ones hair is actually black.  This formulation will appear black and will not fade out to an ugly color. When you touch up you can use the filler when you pull the color through the ends for the last 10 minutes. But I bet you just go ahead and put straight black on your hair and won't listen anyway. Otherwise you would go to a shop and have it done professionally. Been  colorist for 50 years so I know what I'm talking about and I know women so lol.....

It depends on what shade of blond you are. If it’s yellowish then stay with the warm natural browns using anything red will make it auburn.

I am currently at about a level 10 haircolor.I want to go from level 10 to a level 7, which is about a medium golden blond.Do I need a color filler??Isnt that if you want to darken more than 3 levels??

Asked by: Teresa1121
A protein filler/hair color filler has nothing to do with the process of darken or lighting your hair color. If you select Neutral filler you will end up with the true hair color of the hair dye color, but there are also Color fillers that will add vibrance and intensify to the hair dye color that you select if you apply them both at the same time. What a filler does is penetrates into your hair shaft and allows an even distribution of hair color so you don't end up with many different shades of color all over your head such as lighter or brighter bare roots vs much darker colored ends. If your hair is damaged it help to corrects that too by filling porous hair shafts or damaged faded ends.

How often can the protein filler be applied to your hair?

Asked by: Baby8080
The purpose of filler is to equalize the porosity of the ends of the hair that has been overworked. I put it right in the balance of the color after the roots have been touched up and the time had elapsed . Then apply the colorvwuth an ounce of filler to the ends for 5 to 1o minutes and rinse off. Use a after color sealing conditioner to help hold the color for as long as possible using a shamppo for colored hair. If doing a dye back, apply filler to entire hair for 20 minutes, rinse off and apply color to towel dried hair going a shade lighter than what you want to avoid muddy looking or blackish looking color. And take notes at color classes.

You may want to color your hair black and a little protein filler to the color...but only if your hair is naturally BLACK. Use a really good dye. You might want to check with a pro.

I am temporarily using light brown Clairol Natural Instincts box dye on dark blonde hair and it turned out fine other than some yellow/golden tones that I do not want. Which color should I use in this situation? Thanks in advance.

Asked by: anm123456
You have to use an N based color to get rid of unwanted tones. Also don't pull color through ends until the last 5 minutes. Keep color up at least every 6 weeks, color will fade out to base colors.

i’ve been wanting to dye my blonde hair a dark brown color, and people are saying you need to fill the hair before dying it. is this what i should use? if not any recommendations?

Asked by: emmakempl
I use protein filler no matter what color I dye my hair because my hair seems stronger and not as damaged. I also add either extra virgin coconut oil or olive oil before I dye my hair to give it more moisture. Since I have done this routine, I notice that my hair takes in the dye more evenly, it is stronger and silkier.
