FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A, and process for 45 minutes. Rinse, dry and re-lighten resistant areas with Formula B—processing until a Level 10 is achieved.

 

2. Apply Olaplex No.2, and process for 7 minutes. Shampoo and tone with Formula C, processing until all warmth is cancelled out (about 5 to 7 minutes). 

 

3. Shampoo, and add a shadow root using Formula D, using teardrop sectioning and alternating application areas between ¼ to 1 inch. Process for 15 minutes. 

 

4. Finish with Olaplex No.2, then cut and style. Samantha used Joico’s K-PAK Restorative Styling Oil, and sent her client home with Olaplex No.3.
