A Trick For Easier Color Corrections

Color corrections take WORK but there’s an easier way to remove stubborn pigments like green and blue. Kristina saves herself the headache by using Watercolors Intense Shampoos to neutralize right at the bowl! “You can literally watch the color start to change in your hands,” she says.


Here’s what to do:

  • Using a Watercolors Intense Shampoo that’s on the opposite side of the color wheel of the tone you’re trying to neturalize, apply the color-depositing shampoo where needed and massage it in.


  • Do not rinse. Instead, apply more shampoo on top, emulsify it into the trouble areas and then rinse. “The more times you wash, the more pigment,” advises Kristina. “Or for maximum pigment, apply on dry hair.”


For this lava lamp-inspired hair, Kristina used Watercolors Intense Shampoo Rose Gold to remove stubborn green pigment that wouldn’t lift.
