Application Steps

1. Use PRAVANA Artificial Hair Color Extractor to remove existing color and start with a blank canvas.

2. Dry hair and apply PRAVANA Pure Light Power Lightener 1/2-inch from the scalp through 1/4-inch from the ends.

3. Process the lightener until a Level 8 is achieved.

4. Knowing the color scheme is going to be in the violet family, tone the hair with ChromaSilk 10.07 and 10.02 for 15 minutes to neutralize the shade, then dry the hair.
5. Alternate Formulas A-G in foils, switching between fine stitching and larger slices.

6. Process the VIVIDS shades for 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.

7. Rinse each foil out well with cold water. Follow up with VIVIDS Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner.
