    Lighten twice using Formula A, applying off the scalp first, then on the scalp, then through the ends. Process for about 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo.

  • 2

    Create a teardrop subsection on the top of the head (with the tip at the hairline and the “bubble” at the crown) and a second subsection outlining the nape, through the perimeter. Apply Formula B. Make sure to emulsify for complete saturation.

  • 3

    Apply the colors in Formulas C through F, roots to ends, alternating in vertical, ¼-inch sections throughout the interior blocked section. Process for 20 minutes, then rinse.
