Achieving the perfect shade of silver platinum is one challenge, but what if your client, whose natural base is typically color-resistant Asian hair, came back with a whole year of regrowth?!

FORMULA STEPS

1. Using Formula A, double-slice and weave throughout the entire head. Process for about 1½ to 2 hours without heat.

 

2. Rinse, then apply Formula B on towel-dried hair to any areas that are still warm. 

 

3. Then, rinse and apply Olaplex No.2. Let sit for 5 minutes, then rinse again.

 

4. On towel-dried hair, apply Formula C to the roots and blend the ends with Formula D. Process for about 20 minutes.

 

5. Rinse and shampoo with Joico Color Endure Sulfate-Free Shampoo. Then, tone with Formula E and let sit for no more than 5 minutes.

 

6. Next, mix Schwarzkopf Professional BLONDME Keratin Restore Mask with some Olaplex No.2 and leave on for a few minutes before rinsing.

 

7. Blow-dry, then style with a 1½-inch Hot Tools curling iron. Spray some Kenra Professional Platinum Dry Texture Spray 6, follow with OUAI Hair Oil, then gently brush the curls out with your fingers. 

 

8. Send her home with Fanola No Yellow Shampoo so the silver tone lasts until her next appointment.
