“Our idea was to make a multi-tonal pastel color that showcased the versatility of Organic Color Systems’ semipermanent NO Limits hair color,” Kaufman says.

FORMULA AND APPLICATION

Formula 1: 60 g Naturelite Blue lightening powder with 120 g 15-volume cream developer

2. Shampoo and equalize porosity using Organic Salon Systems Power Build shampoo and Revamp Protein Spray.

3. Working in a large checker board pattern, apply one color per square. Alternate Formulas 2, 3, 4 and 5, applying from roots to ends and separating each square with foil. Process at room temperature for 20 minutes, then rinse with cool water.
