Stefanie Kaufman, Organic Salon Systems creative colorist and national educator, gives us the scoop on this perfect pastel blend.

“Our idea was to make a multi-tonal pastel color that showcased the versatility of Organic Color Systems’ semipermanent NO Limits hair color,” Kaufman says.

FORMULA AND APPLICATION

Natural level 7

Formula 1: 60 g Naturelite Blue lightening powder with 120 g 15-volume cream developer

Formula 2: 3 g NO Limits blue + 60 g Organic Salon Systems Power Build conditioner

Formula 3: 8 g NO Limits yellow + 2 g NO Limits green + 1 g NO Limits blue + 60 g Power Build conditioner

Formula 4: 3 g NO Limits red + 3 g NO Limits blue + 60 g Power Build conditioner

Formula 5: 4 g NO limits blue + 6 g NO Limits yellow + 60 g Power Build conditioner

1. Apply Formula 1 at the scalp. Starting at the nape and working forward, apply to all the hair. Process until hair reaches a pale yellow.

2. Shampoo and equalize porosity using Organic Salon Systems Power Build shampoo and Revamp Protein Spray.

3. Working in a large checker board pattern, apply one color per square. Alternate Formulas 2, 3, 4 and 5, applying from roots to ends and separating each square with foil. Process at room temperature for 20 minutes, then rinse with cool water.
