1. Apply Formula 1 to the re-growth only. When you’ve completed the re-growth, immediately apply Formula 2 as an upgrade service by incorporating a hair-painting technique. Start by painting heavier lights around the perimeter of the face, moving into softer blending at the rounds of the head from temple-to-temple. Paint everything above, utilizing what is already there. Process 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition.

 

2. Towel dry hair and apply Formula 3. Process fi ve to 15 minutes, then shampoo and finish with a color lock.
