This Truss technique uses strategic positioning for light and color, an almost artisan work that builds 3-D mosaics with kaleidoscopic combinations.

1. Apply Formula 1 to the regrowth and any darker hair, staying off the scalp. Process until you reach level 10. Then shampoo with Truss Bidimensional Shampoo Work Station, massage one Truss Hydra Color Ampoule through the hair and rinse. Dry hair completely.

2. Next, apply Formula 2 to all the regrowth. Process 50 minutes, then rinse. To reconstruct the hair, apply Truss Deluxe Prime.

3. On damp hair, apply Formula 3 to the regrowth. Process 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly and apply Truss Intensive Nutrition Work Station to close the cuticle.

4. Section out four rectangles on top that move from behind the front hairline to the crown. Section out the hairline all the way around with one flowing parting that creates a triangle in front, then moves down and up to create two triangles at the sides and two at the nape. Apply Formula 4 to the top rectangles. Then apply Formula 5 to the front and side triangles and Formula 6 to triangles at the nape. Process 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
