HOW-TO STEPS

1

Touch up the regrowth area by applying Formula A. Rinse, then tone with Fanola No Yellow Shampoo and condition with Aquage Equalizing Detangler. “This returns the hair back to its natural pH level,” shares Crystal.

2

On damp hair, apply Formula B to the roots first. Then, apply Formula C from the midlengths to the ends and melt the two formulas together.
