FORMULA STEPS

Before.

 

Starting Level: Previously-lightened ends with a Level 3/4 at the root.

 

1. Starting in the back of the head, apply Formula A using a babylight technique, leaving small strands of hair between each section.

 

2. At the hairline and partline, use Formula B and let process for 40 minutes.

 

3. After 40 minutes, the hair reached a Level 9/10, but was very yellow. Remove all foils, then rinse the lightener and apply Olaplex No.2 for 10 minutes. Then shampoo twice using Fanola No Yellow Shampoo and towel-dry.

 

4. Apply Formula C to the root area only and let process for 20 minutes.

 

5. Then rinse, apply Olaplex No.2 for 10 minutes and shampoo again. Then towel-dry the hair and section the hair into quadrants.

 

6. Then, using small diagonal sections, alternate between applying Formulas D, E and F throughout the entire head. Let process for 40 minutes, then rinse, condition and style.

 

Finished look.
