Majirel hair colour is a product of L'Oreal and made with Ionène G. Said to be a colour with ultraconditioners and high resistance to sun and water exposure, Majirel provides longer colour protection for full or partial colours. It is best used by professionals, because the method of application must be followed specifically.
Mix one tube -- 48.2 g (1.7 oz) -- of Majirel's warm mixer with 737 g (2.6 oz) of L'Oreal Professional Majicreme volume (20 or 30) developer of your colour choice. Allow the mixture to stand for at least 20 minutes before applying.
Wear latex or plastic gloves, and use a brush to apply the mixture evenly to the base of the hair strands and then throughout the hair for 100 per cent coverage.
If applying for the first time, cover the midlength strands with the mixture, ending about 2.5 cm (1 inch) from the scalp. Leave on for 15 minutes. Once the hair grows, reapply throughout the new growth, and leave on for a full 35 minutes for best colour results.
For reapplication, apply the colour to dry hair for 35 minutes, and then wash off for best results. Use warm water to emulsify the colour, and then thoroughly cleanse.
For moderate fading, add some drops of warm water to the mixture, and then apply the mixture to the hair for 15 to 20 minutes. For a more natural shade, do a test on some strands of hair to determine the best time of development. For maximum fading, mix the shade needed and then mix a 5 to 7.5 cm (2 to 3 inch) ribbon of cream from the tube in a shade warmer than the target shade, and apply to the hair.
- Using warm water, gently emulsify the mixture on the hair. Then rinse off the applied colour, and shampoo with Optimiser Post-Colour Shampoo for best results.
