As precious as the complexity of crystals, amethyst defines an array of colors and brings a distinct character to anyone who possesses it. This color replicates the multidimensional facets of the lavender jewel. 

 

FORMULA & APPLICATION

Natural level 9

 

Formula 1: GKhair Lightening Powder + 20-volume developer (in a 1:1 ratio) + 10% Shield Additive

Formula 2: 30 g GKhair 900 + 5 g GKhair Juvenix Pastel Color Violet Mixtone + 8.7 g Shield Additive with 52 g 10-volume developer

Formula 3: 10 g 900s + 4 g Violet Mixtone + 1 g Blue Mixtone + 2.2 g Shield Additive with 16.5 g 10-volume developer

 

1. Pre-lighten the base to match the ends, using Formula 1. Process 20 minutes, then rinse, shampoo and blowdry.

2. Select pieces at the bottom of the crown for darker violet accents. Apply Formula 3 down to the ends of these pieces. Process 20 minutes.

3. Wait 5 minutes, then apply Formula 2 from the base through the midlengths and ends to cover all remaining hair. Watch hair closely and rinse after 15 minutes.

So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
