FORMULA STEPS

Starting Point: Natural Level 2, Dark Brown 

 

1. Take ¼-inch horizontal sections using a slice-stitch technique and place on a foil. For subtle pops of dimension, use the horizontal edge of Redken’s Edging Brush and apply Formula A using a horizontal application. Complete all sections.

 

2. Apply Formula B to the roots using a global application and on hair not placed in the foils. Process at room temperature until light blonde, or up to 50 minutes. Shampoo with Extreme. Apply Redken Chemistry Extreme, then towel-dry the hair.

 

3. Apply Formula C, saturating the prelightened sections. Process at room temperature for 30 minutes and rinse. Do not shampoo. On towel-dried hair, apply pH-Bonder #2 Fiber Restorative Pre-wash Concentrate for 10 minutes, then rinse and follow with Color Extend Magnetics shampoo and conditioner.

 

After.
