FORMULA STEPS

1. Section the hair into quadrants. Start in the back by the nape where more pigment is present and apply Joico Color Intensity Eraser to prelightened hair, gently brushing up toward the natural regrowth to prevent bleed marks. “At first the hair turned green and then slightly pink, but most of the color was removed,” shares Tamira.

 

2. Shampoo the hair, then apply Malibu C Crystal Gel Wellness Hair Remedy to help remove any leftover buildup and pigment. Process under heat for 45 minutes.

 

3. Next, shampoo the hair twice with b3 Brazilian Bond Builder Color Care Shampoo. Then, deep condition with b3 Brazilian Bond Builder Instant Restore & Protect Reconstructor

 

4. Blow-dry her hair, then section into quadrants again.

 

5. On dry hair, apply Formula A directly to the roots and pull the formula down about 1 inch past the natural regrowth. 

 

6. Apply Formula B directly onto Formula A with a brush and use your hands to blend the two formulas together. 

 

7. Then, apply Formula C from the midlengths to the ends, blending the formula up into Formulas A and B. Process for 20 minutes.

 

8. Shampoo and towel-dry, then apply b3 Brazilian Bond Builder Demi Permanent Conditioner. Rinse, blow-dry and style as desired.
