  • slow and easy. part it in sections, and begin with horizontal slices-from hairline to back/crown. its harder in the back of the head, unless you have a mirror that you don't have to hold while you apply the color. apply to hairline last, around face/ears/neck.
    it may take a few times to get your technique down.
    remember, you can use leftover color to remove color-stain from the skin.just apply a dab of product to a towel, lightly 'rub' onto stain, and with a clean part of the towel, wipe off. this usually works. don't rub hard, or you'll irritate the skin.

    if you need to refresh your old color, apply to the ends the last 5-10mins of new growth-processing. (if your leftover product is minimal, add just a bit of water or shampoo to it, to dilute and spread easier on your ends/shaft. )
