FAQ's

Pulp Riot FACTION8 Ringleader

WHAT IS IT?

This Italian-made permanent colour is created for the modern hair artist, and utilizes the newest technological advances in hair colour. It provides 100% grey coverage with long lasting results, and leaves the hair in peak condition. The perfect consistency created specifically for easy application, laser-focused placement, and the ultimate, seamless blend.

 

HOW DO I USE IT?

In a non-metallic bowl, mix 1 part FACTION8 colour to 1 part Pulp Riot developer. Apply to dry, unwashed hair. Process 35 minutes. Rinse and shampoo well with Bangkok Shampoo.

 

HOW DO I GET THE BEST GREY COVERAGE ON 100% WHITE HAIR?

FACTION8 colours offer 100% grey coverage. However, for optimal grey coverage on 100% white hair, we recommend mixing 1/4 to 1/2 of the Natural series to your formulation. Use shades from the Double Natural (-00) series for intense grey coverage.

 

ARE THE NATURAL COLOURS WARM OR COOL BASED?

They're cool based.

 

WHAT'S THE MIXING RATIO FOR THE HIGH LIFT COLOURS?

In a non-metallic bowl, mix 1 part High Lift colour to 2 parts Pulp Riot developer. Process for 45-55 minutes. High Lift colours are best on levels 5 and higher. We don't recommend mixing High Lift colours with other target shades.

 

HOW DO I USE THE BOOSTER’S IN MY FORMULA?

When adding a booster to your formula, you don’t need to add extra developer unless it’s more than 10g of booster that’s being added. For example, if you used 60g of 6-0 and added 2g of -22 Booster, the developer amount would be 60g, not 62g.

 

WHAT DEVELOPER DO I USE?

FACTION8 is designed to be mixed with Pulp Riot developers. It creates the perfect creamy consistency for best colour applications. It also helps maximize space because you're using the same developer for all Pulp Riot products that are mixed with developer. To decide which volume of developer to choose, refer to the peroxide chart.

 

CAN FACTION8 ALSO BE USED AS A DEMI-PERMANENT COLOUR?

Yes. You can create more of a demi-permanent colour by changing the mixing ratio and processing time. For example, instead of mixing 1:1 you can mix 1:2 (one part FACTION8 to two parts developer) and process for 15 minutes, instead of 35 min. This gives you, as the artist, an even larger palette to create with.

 

CAN I MIX FACTION8 WITH PULP RIOT SEMI-PERMANENT COLOURS?

No. It's best to apply your FACTION8 formula first, let it process, fully shampoo out with Bangkok Shampoo, dry the hair, and then apply your semi-permanent formula.

 

CAN I USE BLANK CANVAS TO REMOVE FACTION8?

Blank Canvas is designed to remove semi-permanent colour. We don’t recommend using it to remove FACTION8 permanent colour.

 

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Vegan, animal cruelty-free, paraben-free, PPD free
