"When painting the crown area, I prefer to use more of the darker formula because it will look more natural closer to the scalp and it will grow out faster. Chunky and heavy blonde highlights around the scalp will look very unnatural with horrible regrowth." Once the entire head is woven, grab random sections and paint the lighter color to create a brighter effect.
Process as needed to get the desired color. After washing the color out, towel dry the hair really well and mix a gloss that will get the color results you like.
This is the formula used for Brittany's gloss:
2 oz. of 9G (Shades EQ)
1 oz. of 7NB (Shades EQ)
"I gloss all my highlights even if it's not necessary because I believe in sealing the cuticle layer," Amiel says. "The gloss will balance the hair and lower the pH balance of the hair. I want shiny hair and the gloss always does the trick. I am a big fan of healthy hair. If the cuticle layer is properly sealed, you get a natural shine because the light will bounce off the hair as opposed to greasy products that weigh the hair down and leave a very unwanted film."
