    Before

  • 2

    Apply Formula A to the regrowth area and blend using a Colortrak Spongelight Haircolor Applicator.

  • 3

    Apply Formula B to the prelightened areas and use foils between sections to promote heat and keep sections separate.

  • 4

    Process until the hair has achieved even lift. Shampoo with Clairol Professional iThrive Keratin Rescue Shampoo and rinse with cold water. Then, blow-dry.

  • 5

    Section the hair. Apply Formula C, Formula D, Formula E and Formula F to the hair closest to the roots. As you work your way down the sections, apply Formula G, Formula H, Formula I and Formula J. Then, blend!

     

    Pro Tip: Make sure you are mindful of complementary colors when placing your formulas.

  • 6

    Process, then rinse with cold water and apply Clairol Professional iThrive Color Vibrancy Treatment. Process for 5 minutes. Rinse again with cold water, then blow-dry.

  • 7

    For styling, curl the hair with a 1.25-inch curling iron and break up the curls with your fingers. 

  • 8

    Apply a volumizing or texturizing powder at the crown, then gently backcomb and smooth.

  • 9

    Gather the hair to one side and create a Dutch braid. Sprinkle texturizing powder and plait, continuing to the ends of the hair.

     

  • 10

    Then, backcomb ends to secure braid and apply hairspray.
