Can I side a 30 developer in a Wella T18 toner?
The short answer is yes, but like anything related to hair care, it’s best to consult with your hairdresser/barber.
Although the instructions of the product may suggest otherwise; more often than not hairdressers will use products past their expiration date, and it’s possible to use a higher developer than the stated amount.
In the past, the Wella T18 toner could only be purchased with a 30 developer. However, now disposable combs are readily available for purchase.
I will discuss if you can side a 30 developer in a Wella T18 toner or if you must use a 40 developer.
The Wella T18 toner is a permanent hair color. This means that it provides gentle, natural-looking color to all of your hair.
If you want to use a 30 developer, it will not come with the toner itself. Some beauty supply stores may carry the Wella T18 toner with a 30 developer.
However, this is not common. For example, Sally Beauty Supply does not carry the Wella T18 toner with a 30 Developer.
The Wella T18 toner works best at a 1:2 ratio, mixing equal parts of Wella T18 and hydrogen peroxide.
A 30 developer working out on the scalp can be very damaging, which will negate all the positive effects the Wella T18 toner has on your hair.
