1. Apply Formula 1 to the regrowth and any darker hair, staying off the scalp. Process until you reach level 10. Then shampoo, massage a color ampoule through the hair and rinse. Dry hair completely.
2. Next, apply Formula 2 to all the regrowth. Process 50 minutes, then rinse and reconstruct.
3. On damp hair, apply Formula 3 to the new growth. Process 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
4. Section out four rectangles on top that move from behind the front hairline to the crown. Then section out the hairline all the way around with one flowing parting that creates a triangle in front, moves down and then up to create two triangles at the sides and two at the nape. Apply Formula 4 to the top rectangles and front and side triangles. Apply Formula 5 to triangles at the nape. Process 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
