Best Sunless Solution for Deep Brown Tan
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a client with really light blonde hair and fair skin tone but she can pull off a darker tan. She has eczema (does use cortisone cream) and we have tried a few different solutions but are not getting the deep brown colour she wants.

After the first few times she loved the initial colour with the colour guide but experienced post-rinse disappointment when the developed tan result was not close to the colour following application.

So far we have tried the following solutions and a variety of applications using different equipment at different solution levels:

Norvell One, Norvell Dark, Aviva Miami, Aviva Gimme Brown 12%

Prefer to source solution locally if possible. Any suggestions?

I've attached an image of the clients desired tan colour for reference.

Hi, I would suggest using the Aviva Booster Drops in the 12%.

Norvell Double Dark or New Norvell Venetian Plus might be best.

If she is fair skin.....that 12% most likely does not fade well on her. Especially with eczema. Clients with eczema tend to have dry skin. For example, my sister has eczema and has fair skin. I use an 8% on her and she loves it. By going higher on a dha% with a client with eczema, you will dry out their skin more.

I can use Double Dark on every single skin type. When you're experienced you know exactly how much to spray.

Very true. Im very experienced and would not use a 9% on an very fair client.

Thanks everybody!

I'll have to order some Norvell Double Dark and give that a try. I wanted to opt for a lower dha but the 12% was recommended.

I appreciate all of the invaluable advice from experience!

She would def do great with a sunless bronzing moisturizer add on. Rain or So naughty Nude sunless. Not only great moisturizer but that little bit of layering everyday keeps that nice color up. If she has eczema and is not bothered by the spray she might be pleased with being able to keep adding that nice bronze color.

Maybe try layering the product? What I do with my daughter who is very pale, blonde hair and suffers with eczema and she uses cortisone cream from time to time is to ALWAYS prep her skin with my prep spray, then I spray 2 x 6% tanning solution (only using around 30ml), and then do the same again. This way she gets great depth of colour and she doesn't fade badly either. When I've sprayed her with higher DHA % she gets poor fade and also her skin dries out so much quicker and she gets more scratchy. Remember higher DHA % means more drying. We stick to this technique now as it works well. HTH
