Product Review: Goldwell Elumen Hair color
Goldwell Elumen Hair color has been on my wish list for awhile. It is a sem-permanent color. There is no mixing with developer. Just a direct dye. I like it. It seems to absorb better in the hair than the Sebastian Cellophanes.
There is some sodium hydroxide toward the end of the ingredient list. So if you or a client has a soft curl or thio based chemical, then I would not recommend the Elumen color because it may not be compatible.
I used this color on a client with relaxed hair to cover her gray in between relaxers, and it covered gray decently considering the last relaxer touch-up was a few weeks prior.
The consistency of the Elumen seems wet enough to cocktail with conditioner if a quick fix is ever needed. So far, I have only tried the NA@2 color which is a natural black color, but I plan to add a few more color options at the salon.
