2. Apply Formula 2 to all the hair and process 35 minutes. Then rinse in cool water and dry hair completely.
3. Apply Formula 3 at the base area and feather down about 1 inch in front and as much as 2-3 inches, as you work toward the back of the head. Process 5 minutes, then apply Formula 4 to the midlengths, overlapping into Formula 3. Leave 5 to 6 inches at the ends in front and 3 to 4 inches in back uncolored. Then apply Formula 2 to all the uncolored hair at the ends, and process 35 minutes before rinsing in cold water.
