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.
Apply LIGHTENER FORMULA to mid-lengths through the ends to prep the hair for tonal change. Process until desired lightness is achieved up to 50 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
Apply FORMULA A to the new growth area, then apply FORMULA B to the mid-lengths back into FORMULA A for the ends.
HAIR HACK: Using your pointer finger and middle finger to blur the formulas together for a seamless transition of colors.
