My model had a grown out level 5 shadow root and around a level 7 natural base with around a level 9 overly toned blonde mids and ends. I knocked out the band first with Schwarzkopf Blond Me and 6% (20 volume) for around 25 minutes. Apply the same mix to the roots for 10 minutes under a cap to insulate.

Rinse and tone the roots with 9,5-22 in Schwarzkopf for 10 minutes. Follow with a full Olaplex stand alone treatment for 20 minutes. Dry the hair in preparation for the fashion shades.
