Creating "Less THICK" Color Formula

As I demonstrate in class, I use both a brush to apply color AND I also use an applicator


The choice is YOURS. IF YOU would like to use an applicator bottle to apply color but

find that the brand you are using is "too thick".. here is an easy way to make the formula

perform perfectly.. AND be able to flow from an applicator bottle.

Let's say that the formula you are mixing uses 2ounces of 20 volume developer. OK.

Pour 1 ounce of the 20 volume developer your brand recommends into a bottle. NOW

add 1 ounce of clear, liquid 20 volume peroxide. I know that there are generic brands and

that Paul Mitchell and Clairol continue to offer CLEAR, STABLE 20 volume, liquid developer.

Close the bottle, cover the nozzle and SHAKE. Open the bottle. Add your color. Again,

shake the bottle THOROUGHLY. TAA DAA! You will now find the mixture much, much

easier to dispense from the bottle should you wish to do so.
