Step 1: Prep

Prep the hair by spraying Purify & Revive PRIME Demineralizing Spray generously throughout the hair, combing through for even distribution and allowing to sit for 3 minutes (no rinsing or shampoo required!). This will diminish any hard water minerals prior to any chemical service.

Pro Tip

Minerals are found in 85% of household water which can cause lightener to puff and swell or color to take inaccurately.

Step 2: Section

Divide the hair into the Standard 4 Quadrants by taking a parting from behind the ear to behind the ear and a second parting from nose to nape.

Pro Tip

Twist each section into a knot to keep them up and out of your way.

Step 3: Global Blonding

Using your favorite global blonding technique apply the Lightening Formula ½” away from the scalp through the ends lifting to a Level 9. Once you have reached 70% of the lift, apply the same formula to the scalp.

Pro Tip

Applying lightener utilizing this virgin application method accounts for the heat of the scalp for even processing results.

Process up to 55 minutes checking every 5-10 minutes until you reach a Level 9. Cleanse the hair with Intense Therapy Cleanse and dry the hair completely.

Step 4: VIVIDS Application

Dividing the hair into the same Standard 4 Quadrants, apply ChromaSilk VIVIDS Original Yellow as a base. Then go back taking ½” subsections and melt the remaining ChromaSilk VIVIDS shades about an inch apart blending the transition points between two fingers.

Pro Tip

Equalize the porosity by prepping the hair before the VIVIDS application with Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment for even color uptake and more longevity.

Process 30 minutes at room temperature. Rinse with cold water and high water pressure until the water runs clear and condition with Intense Therapy Condition.

Step 5: Styling

For quick and easy styling, create twists by taking ½” sections. Divide the sections in half again, twist the two strands together and place the client under medium heat until completely dry.

 Step 5: Male model's hair is styled by twisting two strands of hair together

Pro Tip

Apply Hydra Pearl Oil to damp hair before you begin to provide thermal protection up to 450°
