1. Divide hair into four sections with partings that move from nose-to-nape and from ear-to-ear.
2. Starting in the back, take fine, horizontal slices and apply Formula 1 to the new growth. Pull the color down 2-3 inches, as you saturate the area.
3. Next, apply a generous amount of Formula 2 about 1 inch away from where Formula 1 ends. Blend formulas together, creating a gradient blend. Then continue applying Formula 2 down to the ends. Place the section in a foil.
4. Continue the application procedure, as you work up the head. Once hair is foiled, process 30 minutes or until you reach level 8. Shampoo and rinse.
5. Apply Formula 3 to ends and process 5 minutes. Shampoo and condition.
