2 Key Takeaways
How Does The Color Transformer Work?
If you ever wished you could buy less color and have more versatility, this is the product for you. SPARKS Color Transformer converts permanent into demi-permanent haircolor by lessening the ammonia and pH levels in permanent haircolor. Simply mix a half ounce of Color Transformer in with one ounce of SPARKS Permanent Creme Color and one ounce of 13-volume developer to create the demi formula.
Note: SPARKS does not recommend using any other volume of developer for this process.
What Is The Twist & Tease Balayage Technique & Why Should I Use It?
This technique adds depth of brightness to the hair with a simple twist, which saves you time behind the chair. To achieve the twist and tease technique:
- Weave out a section of hair and set it over a foil.
- Twist the hair going to the left or right. (The direction determines where you want the brightness and depth to be. The exposed hair will be brighter, while the hair underneath will be darker.)
- Apply the formula in a feathering motion going up and out for full saturation and close the foil. Continue this step alternating twisted directions for more dimension throughout the hair.
