It is important to do a strand test for two reasons:
- To determine if this product contains ingredients that cause irritation.
- To determine approximate processing time.
USE THE GUIDE BELOW FOR PROCESSING TIME:
- Combine 1/2 Tbsp. powder with 1 Tbsp. of developer. Ratio 1:2
- Mix until creamy.
- Apply to a small section of hair.
- Wrap hair in foil or plastic to protect surrounding hair.
- No heat required for processing. Check hair every 10 minutes by wiping off a small amount with damp towel. If hair appears too red or gold, reapply mixture and continue timing.
- When section has achieved desired lightness, wipe off and process with full application.
HOW TO BLEACH YOUR HAIR AND GET THE RESULTS YOU WANT.
- Blonding depends on the natural hair color, condition, and porosity of the hair.
- The darker/coarser the hair, the longer to process.
- Do Not Use heat. Product is designed to work at room temperature.
