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.

RINSE & CONDITION

Before rinsing, massage your scalp with water to make sure the color is blended. Then, 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. Dry your hair with an old towel, as this color may stain!
