  • Step 1 step1

    Create a 1½-inch wide “head band” section 1 inch above the hairline that spans in front of the crown of the head.

  • Step 2 steps

    Create a similar, smaller section behind the crown.

  • Step 3

    Use a rat-tail comb to draw a zigzag in those sections, creating triangles that point in alternating directions.

  • Step 4

    In each triangular sub-section, alternate application of Formulas A, B and C.
    Tip: The size of each sub-section can be altered to adjust for length.

  • Step 5

    Apply Formula A (background) from scalp to ends of remaining hair. Process 35 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Cleanse and condition with Keratin Complex® shampoo and conditioner.

  • Tip

    Add a Vitalshot™ to formulas to strengthen and rebuild the bonds of the hair.
