How to Use Pulp Riot High Speed Toners…

Pulp Riot High Speed toners are incredibly easy to use in the salon. Simply mix to required ratio, apply to hair and allow to develop before rinsing out:

Step-by-step application:

  1. Mix 1 part colour to 2 parts developer (1:2) in a non-metallic bowl
  2. For a more subtle effect, increase developer ratio to 1:3 or 1:4
  3. Use either 6 or 10 volume depending on lightness of the hair
  4. Apply toner to dry or damp hair at the shampoo bowl
  5. Leave on for 2 – 20 minutes depending on desired intensity
  6. Shampoo the toner out of the hair when ready
  7. Either continue to condition, dry and style hair, or apply Pulp Riot Colour on top


Do You Mix Pulp Riot Toner With a Developer?

Pulp Riot toners should be mixed with either Pulp Riot Superior Scalp Developer 10 Volume or Pulp Riot Superior Scalp Developer 6 Volume. When working with lighter and finer hair, 6 volume is preferred.
