OSMO's multi-D metallic is summer hair must-have

OSMO Icon Metallic Pastel hair colour Aquamarine

When it comes to hair, this summer it's all about the metallics, from slick lilac metallic ponytails to balayage highlights with metallic strawberry and apricot tones. Luckily for us, hair experts OSMO have introduced their range of Ikon Metallic shades in a range of to-die-for pastels.

Get experimenting with OSMO's five new permanent colour tones of Apricot, Lilac, Aquamarine, Strawberry and Ice. Use each multi-dimensional shade to create depth, shine and vibrancy with a metallic finish.

Delivering long-lasting colour, these pastel shades are formulated with Micro-Connective Technology (MCT). Micro-sized colour molecules are easily absorbed into the hair cuticle, allowing for lower ammonia content to significantly improve hair conditioning. MCT molecules are locked into the cuticle to provide longer-lasting colour clarity and multi-dimensional shine. What's more, the formula includes Sunflower Seed extract so that hair is left looking and feeling smooth and radiant.

OSMO Icon Metallic Pastel hair colour

Available in a generous 100ml tube size, mix your chosen OSMO Ikon® Pastel Metallic shade with OSMO Ikon® Developer (Tone on Tone, 10 Vol, 20 Vol) in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. For intense results, use a ratio of 1:1.5, for medium a ratio of 1:3, and for watercolour results a ratio of 1:4. The more you increase the mixing ratio between the colouring cream and the oxidising emulsion, the more the amount of colour deposited on the hair decreases. Let colour develop for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the porosity of the hair and how intense a colour you want to create.
