SECTIONING:
Create a center parting from the front hairline to the nape. Next, take a parting across the top of the head extending from top of the ear to top of the other ear, secure sections for control.

LIGHTENING:

Starting in the nape, take a diagonal slice apply the LIGHTENER FORMULA using a freehand technique to the mid-lengths and ends feathering up toward the scalp but staying a few inches away. Repeat until all sections complete.

PROCESS UNTIL DESIRED LIGHTNESS IS ACHIEVED OR UP TO 50 MINUTES. RINSE THOROUGHLY AND TOWEL DRY.

COLOR MELT:
