Using a compact foil technique, apply Formula A to new growth. Process to target level; cleanse with Keratin Complex shampoo.
Apply Formula B to warmest areas first, followed by the other areas. If canvas is even, apply formula all over. Process 10 minutes. Cleanse and condition with Keratin Complex® shampoo and conditioner.
On the heavier fall of the natural part line, create a triangle, with the part as the base, by starting at the crown and drawing a line to the outer corner of the eye. Create a smaller triangle on the other side that begins at the same point and ends between the center forehead and mid-brow. Carve out another, smaller triangle shape on the crown.
Apply Formula C in slices from the forehead to the top, within triangle. Cover forehead sub-sections with the most color – paint from the scalp to ¼ inch from the ends, finishing with an angled brush and diffusing through ends in varying degrees.
Continue working through sub-sections, saturating less length as you move upward, and diffusing through the ends. Sub-sections at crown should be painted from scalp to mid-length, but still blended.
Using Formula C, repeat the same technique on the smaller triangle section at the crown. The sub-sections closest to the crown should be most saturated with color. Process 35 minutes.
Cleanse and condition with Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioner.
Add a Vitalshot™ to formulas to strengthen and rebuild the bonds of the hair.
Apply Glowtion Potion Styling Oil lightly throughout hair.
Finish with Iconic Polish High Shine Pomade.
