and brush will help you avoid color overlap. To "thin" your formula slightly, mix equal

parts of creme and liquid developer at the same volume. This helps the mixture to

move through the applicator tip easily.

When covering gray hair with permanent hair color, I ALWAYS use 20 volume developer

and process the color at room temperature for 45 minutes. Using a formula which is no

more than 2 levels lighter than the "still pigmented" hair creates the best control of underlying


When performing a "high lift" blending application, using permanent hair color, I process the hair at room temperature for ONE HOUR. Be sure to take very fine, even sections to assure

best lift and deposit.

When toning bleached hair with a liquid demi permanent color, I process at the "root" and about inch up through the hair lengths for 10 - 15 minutes at room temperature. If hair is

extremely thick, process under a pre-heated source for 10 minutes.

might expect. So, remember that when refreshing faded, previously processed hair lengths.
