The Color Accelerator, TCA, is a hair color additive that slows down the processing of hydrogen peroxide while driving color molecules deeper into the hair shaft.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you use TCA with lightener?

Yes, TCA is lightener safe and can speed the process of lightening up. Along the side of the box will be measurements on how much you should mix.

Do I have to change my formula to use TCA?

No, you do not have to change your formula brand or the amount used in order to use TCA. It is simply a color additive.

Is TCA safe to use with heat?

Absolutely. In fact, using heat (foils, heat lamp, etc.) may cut processing time down even further depending how fast you need it done.

Customer reviews
Just as described. Love that it cutes the processing time and half! What a time saver and so worth the price if you dye your hair or others often. Not ideal for 1 or 2 use since bottle has many drops. Use as the label states...but to admit...i used an extra 3 drops haha. Would buy again and would recommend for others who also do their own hair as I do.

Time is money, and you literally can process your colors so much faster with these drops.

My clients notice when I run out of drops. They don’t want to sit here for longer.

Get the drops and make everyone happy!
