PREPARE TO COLOR

Beginning with dry, unwashed hair, rub a small amount of moisturizing cream around your hairline to prevent staining. Then, wrap a towel around your shoulders, brush out your hair, and put on your gloves to protect your hands and clothes from the hair color. Then, read the instruction sheet carefully.

APPLY TO THE LENGTHS

Part your hair in the middle and secure the top section with a clip. Apply about 2/3 of the products onto the length of your hair, using your hands to work it in and make sure it’s evenly distributed. It should be all over your hair, stopping four inches from your roots. Wait 25 minutes.

APPLY TO THE ROOTS

After waiting 25 minutes, apply the remaining color directly to your roots, using your fingers to spread it. Wait 20 minutes, starting as soon as you finish applying the color. You shouldn’t exceed 45 minutes of total break time!

Rinse your hair until the water runs completely clear. Apply the color conditioner, which is infused with a nourishing blend of avocado, olive and shea oils to leave hair feeling soft and smooth. Leave it on for two minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Towel-dry and style your hair.
