What Josh formulated this for....gives an expert, natural-looking colour finish and 100% grey coverage.
Josh’s advice...if your aim is to cover grown out roots, only apply permanent colour to the regrowth. Apply a Gloss to mid-lengths and ends afterwards for a natural, blended finish. Do not apply permanent colour over highlighted or balayage mid-lengths and ends, it will colour over and remove this effect from your hair.
If you have no colour in your hair and want all-over colour, apply permanent colour to your roots and mid-lengths, only colouring your ends for the last 10 minutes of development time for a freshly-coloured salon finish.

Josh Talks Colour
I created the Permanent Colour Kit so you can achieve 100% grey coverage and glossy colour that's kind to hair, wherever you are.
Your question will appear on the site once someone answers it.
I used the 8.0 permanent colour, watched an instruction video on youtube and crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. I am so happy (and relieved) the grey is gone and the overall colour of my hair is very similar to my hair after my usual hairdresser has coloured it. I have reordered already with the colour shot for next time.
Things did not get off to a great start as Mr. Mike grappled with the rubber gloves provided until one of them snapped in two.
Sectioning my hair into quarters was an unpleasant experience best glossed over at this stage.
Mr. Mike, like many artistes at the top of their game, is quite highly strung. This was demonstrated within the first five minutes of my appointment when he flung the bottle of colour into the sink declaring ”You do it your bloody self then!”
After he had had a word with himself and regained his composure he continued with the appointment.
There was none of the usual chatter about “Where are you going on holiday this year?” or “Have you been to the pictures lately?” In fact the rest of the session was carried out in grim silence.
My one comment of “I think you’ve missed a bit” was answered with “I can’t understand what you’re saying, your voice is too high-pitched”
Any other whimpering sounds that I made were responded to with a sharp tug on my hair and a low growl.
Mr. Mike’s technique is his own, a little rough and ready, not so much smoothing the colour onto my hair with his fingers as scrubbing it into my scalp but all great artists have their little foibles..
On the several occasions when he dropped something, he seemed to have forgotten that he was holding my hair as he strode across the room to retrieve the dropped item.
Luckily, the stool I was perched on was on wheels and so I was able to glide after him without suffering hair loss.
I do feel that his experience with muddy dogs has moulded Mr. Mike’s technique, possibly to the detriment of his human client.
After he had finished putting colour onto each quarter of my hair, Mr. Mike was determined that he was going to massage it in.
Again, an unpleasant and unnerving moment in this unique experience.
There was no coffee offered, no magazine, no biscuits. Disappointing.
At this point Mr. Mike had to leave the salon to take delivery of a new lawnmower, and has not been seen since.
There is a sound coming from outside of lawn being determinedly cut down to size. Is there no end to his ability?
(Addendum: I can only thank Sweet Baby Jesus and all his angels that I had not booked in for a cut as well as colour!!)
I finished my hair on my own and am actually surprisingly pleased with the results
The Josh Wood colour kit was easy (for most people) to use and the colour has come out evenly.
I am hoping that lockdown will be over before my hair needs colouring again, but if not, I know I can rely on Mr. Mike’s Poodle Parlour for a top notch colour and unique customer experience. 🥺
The bottle made application much easier and I got full coverage with self application. Although once it’s easier if you have someone to help!
Hair felt surprisingly soft afterwards and not dry! I think the conditioner was really good!
