For the hair, oxidation is an activator that you mix with your hair dye. Oxidation opens the hair cuticle and allows your hair to absorb the new color. For hair coloring there are different strengths in terms of percentages of oxidation. It is usually between 1.9% and 12%. The most common options are 3%, 6%, 9% and 12%. With bleaching it works differently and you usually choose the lowest percentage so that your blonde color lights up as brightly as possible with as few yellow and orange pigments as possible.
There are different oxidations that help you dye your hair. The different percentages are suitable for different results that you want to have when coloring the hair. When purchasing oxidation, you should look closely at the percentage, which is also stated in 'Vol.' or 'volume' is expressed.
