  1. Balayage hair with Formula 1. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry.
  2. Using Formula 2, do a quick bleach wash for 3-5 minutes. This just takes away a little more of the browned out color to cleanse the hair palette. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry.
  3. Apply Formula 3 from base to ends and process 40 minutes.
