FORMULA STEPS

1. Balayage using Formula A, let process and rinse.

 

2. Then, go back through the hair and lowlight using Formula B.

 

3. Tone with Formula C. (Mika used this formula to add a little bit of warmth to the color.)

 

4. After toning, rinse, then use the Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner to protect colored strands.

 

5. Then, because the alkaline level in color separates the hair cuticle and roughs it up during processing, use the new Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Acidic Milk Rinse to balance out the pH levels in the hair and fully seal in the color—keeping it more protected, shinier and healthier for longer. 

 

Pro Tip: Use more of the Acidic Milk Rinse when working with coarse hair or hair that has been heavily processed. Use less if the hair is finer.
