FORMULA STEPS

1. Create a Mohawk section and, using foils, weave babylights through the regrowth only using Formula A.

 

2. Then, take ¼-inch diagonal back sections and use Formula A again to weave babylights from the crown to the front hairline. Continue this pattern as you work up the round of the head until you reach the Mohawk section.

 

3. Apply Formula B to the regrowth in between foil packets, stopping at the line of demarcation. In the back section from the crown to the nape, continue applying Formula B. Process for 10 minutes.

 

4. In between foils, take a natural weave subsection and apply Formula B again, dragging the formula down about 1½ inches past the line of demarcation.

 

5. Using the conditioning product of your choice, blur the line where you just dragged down Formula B and cover with foil.

 

6. Next, drag Formula B down in the back sections using a wide-tooth comb about 1½ inches past the line of demarcation. Do not cover with foils. Process for 10 minutes.

 

7. Rinse, shampoo and towel-dry the hair. Then, apply Formula C to the roots and drag the formula down a ½-inch every two minutes with a wide-tooth comb.

 

8. Once you reach the midlengths, gloss with Formula D and comb the formula through from the roots to the ends. Process for 5 minutes.

 

9. Then, rinse and follow with the conditioning treatment of your choice. Blow-dry, create loose waves using a 1¼ inch iron and finish with texture spray.
