    1. To achieve ‘Salt and Pepper’ lowlights, use 4.117 and/or 6.117 on natural white hair. Because the traditional method of using natural colours with added ash for this effect sometimes results in the colour turning ‘warm’ after several weeks in the hair, the Gothic Collection 4.117 and 6.117 are the ideal choice.

    2. Converter is ideal for use with the Gothic Collection but may result in a slightly less strong colour result (Mix: 1 part Gothic shade to 2 parts Converter).

    3. The Gothic Collection is also intermixable with Infiniti Natural shades (.0) to create very cold flat natural colours (ideal for men).
