Application

Begin all color and lightening applications diminishing any minerals in the hair by spraying Purify & Revive PRIME generously throughout the hair, comb through and allow it to sit for 3 minutes while you mix. No rinsing or shampoo required.

Step 1

Section the hair by creating a Snowflake section in the crown of the head. Your sections should vary in width, more shallow in the front and deeper in the back mimicking a snowflake.

Step 2

Taking a Triangle Section from the “peaks” of the snowflake, paint Balayage Formula 1 in half “V”s with the larger slant going towards the face. Use a 1” paintbrush in the front for more detailed work and a 2” paintbrush in the back.

Pro Tip

When retouching a previous balayage, concentrate the application on the virgin hair of the midsection, then feather lightly to blend into the natural base and into the previously lightened ends.

Step 3

Now you are left with the “valleys” on the top of the head. Repeat the same half “V” application as in Step 2 using Balayage Formula 2. Process until you achieve a Level 8/9 gold-yellow stage.

Step 4

Shampoo with TRUITY Cleanse, rinse and towel-dry. Apply Silk Degrees Prep & Treat for 5 minutes at the sink, rinse and dry the hair.

Pro Tip

Silk Degrees Prep & Treat equalizes the porosity of the hair after removing the lightener for better color deposit and more longevity.

Step 5

Apply the Color Formula saturating the balayaged hair and blending it towards the base without applying directly on scalp. Process 30 minutes at room temperature. Shampoo lightly with TRUITY Cleanse and Condition, then apply TRUITY Blowdry Cream and style as desired.
