1. Divide hair into four sections by parting from the front hairline to the nape, and from ear to ear across the top of the head.
2. Starting at the right back section, isolate horizontal sub-sections spaced ½-inch apart. Gently clip and lift each section to create a natural micro section. Apply Formula 1 on the micro-section 2 inches from the base. Isolate with foil. Continue on all sections.
3. Apply Formula 2 from the base down 2 inches.
4. Apply Formula 3 on lengths and ends of the non-isolated sections.
5. Process, shampoo and towel dry. Apply Formulas 4, 5 and 6 on wide rectangular sections alternating throughout the head.
