Using Developer When Dyeing Hair

I need help for my hair color. I use 4N- medium natural brown from Ion Brilliance semi permanent hair color. My natural hair color is black and I have about 50% gray. I use 2 oz of color and 2 oz of 10 vol developer.


I use 10 vol developer because I want just a deposit of the color and not a lift. The gray coverage/blending is decent. Will using a 20 vol developer give better results?

35 year hairstylist veteran giving advice here. 20 volume will lift your non-gray color and not deposit the dark color in to the gray as well as 10 volume. The higher the volume the higher the lift.
