Hair Color Magic™ Check It was designed as a supplemental tool for professional Cosmetologists using Aveda’s Full Spectrum™ Protective Permanent Crème Hair Color, Shades of Enlightenment Advanced Lifting Crème Hair Color, and Full Spectrum Deep™ Extra Lift and Deposit Crème Color for Dark Hair.
For the first time colorist can check their formulas before applying color. If you have ever asked yourself what would happen if you use a particular Aveda pure tone at a desired level. Hair Color Magic™ Check It is for you.
As an educational tool Hair Color Magic™ Check It is the result of the popular Hair Color Magic Color Formulations class. Check It takes the Natural Remaining Pigment (either lifting or depositing), plus your Aveda pure tone choice, and calculates the effect of these factors into a Reflective Tone.

Maybe if it was free...
When I downloaded the app I was very excited about using it, I have found it useful on a few occasions but for the most part I feel like the app is only half way done. If you don't already understand the Aveda color line it can be confusing to use. I also noticed that with FSD not all the shades were represented. I don't know if maybe it was an oversight or maybe with an update they plan to include the full line but I find it lacking that the app is 2.99 but comes with so few options. If it was free instead of $2.99 and would come with a new update including the new B/B and shade 14 for Deep I would give it a higher rating.
check it app
i love anything that brings technology into our profession. i think this is a nice addition to the HCM and HCME class but still feel having the knowledge to do this in your head is key and then using this tool to do exactly what its called "check it" and see if youre correct in your calculation
Love the app! One question, if the "results" box is empty once I've selected my pure tones, does that indicate a true "neutral" reflective tone?
