Application: Apply formula 1 to roots, then saturate all remaining hair with formula 2. Using an angled brush, paint thin lines of formula 3 on the surface of the hair, on top of the previous application, to add dimension and emphasis. Process 30 minutes, rinse and shampoo. Towel dry. Apply formula 4 roots to ends and process 5-10 minutes. Rinse again and condition.
