Always ask your stylist to perform an Allergy Alert Test 48h before each coloration. Strictly follow safety instructions. If you have ever experienced an allergic reaction to hair colorants, you should not color.

What Are Non-Progressive Dyes

Non-progressive color is a term used to understand the oxidation process of any given color line. In this case, when we’re talking about the new Wella Professionals Koleston Xpress as a non-progressive color, it means that during application, the dyes won’t continue to get darker after the development time. Why is this important? Because as a hair color range that develops in just 10 minutes, it’s imperative to ensure your client’s color is never over-processed.

The Koleston Xpress range is powered by Control-X Technology, a cutting-edge innovation that ensures color will develop and helps cut down on over-processing. Thanks to this, you can achieve consistent results with less worry about your shades over-processing.

With healthy hair color results in mind, Wella Professionals Koleston Xpress is also formulated with Metal Purifier to protect hair from extra damage happening in the presence of metals wherever color is placed.
