Nika Grace Colors Toning Application Guide

Materials Required:

  • Grace Color toning shade
  • Activator (5 vol or 10 vol)
  • Non-metallic mixing bowl
  • Hair coloring brush
  • Gloves
  • Timer
  • Shampoo and conditioner suitable for colored hair


  • Mix Grace Color toning shade with the activator in a 1:2 ratio. For example, blend 60 ml of the toning shade with 120 ml of Activator.
  • Ensure gloves are worn to protect your hands from staining.
  • Start with hair washed and lightly towel-dried to remove excess water.


  • Apply the mixture to the hair using the coloring brush, starting from the areas that need the most correction or where the desired tonal effect is strongest.
  • Use sectioning clips to divide the hair into manageable sections for even application.
  • Once all hair is covered, comb through gently to ensure even distribution of the product.
  • Leave the mixture on the hair to process 'at sight', which typically means checking the color development every 5-10 minutes. The total processing time should not exceed the recommended duration based on the desired tonal intensity.


  • Once the desired tone is achieved, rinse the hair thoroughly with lukewarm water until the water runs clear.
  • Shampoo the hair gently with a shampoo formulated for colored hair to help remove any residual color mixture.
  • Apply a conditioner suitable for colored hair, leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly to add moisture and shine to the toned hair.

Post-Treatment Tips:

  • Avoid washing your hair for at least 48 hours after the toning treatment to allow the color to set.
  • Use color-protecting hair care products to maintain the tone and vibrancy of the color.
  • Limit exposure to sun, chlorine, and salt water, as these can fade the color and affect the tonal quality.
  • Schedule regular touch-up sessions to maintain the desired tone, depending on the hair growth and color fade.
