Application

Step 1

Section the hair into the PRAVANA standard 4 quadrants by taking a radial parting from behind the ear to behind the ear and another parting from nose to nape to create a working guide.

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

Taking thin 1/8” sections, apply the Lightening Formula ½” away from the regrowth to the previously lightened hair. Once the hair has achieved 70% of the desired lift, apply the same formula on scalp.

Pro Tip

Use a platinum card (back-to-back) foil method for more control taking care not to overlap previously lightened hair.

Process up to 55 minutes at room temperature checking every 5-10 minutes until you reach a clean Level 10. Shampoo only with PRAVANA’s Intense Therapy Cleanse, towel-dry and apply Silk Degrees Prep and Treat for 5 minutes at the sink, rinse and completely dry the hair.

Step 3

Divide the hair in half by taking a parting from nose to nape. Apply the Pearl Formula to the left side from base through the ends protecting with foil or meche sheets.

Pro Tip

When you are working with thick hair, you can start with Zero Lift Creme Developer in the Hairline Halo, increase to 10 Volume Creme Developer in the back Crown and increase again to 20 Volume Creme Developer as you move into the Top Crown so all of the lightening will process at the same time.

Process the lightener at room temperature until you reach a Level 8-9 in the Face Frame and Hairline Halo, and a Level 7 in the Top Crown. Shampoo with Color Protect Cleanse, rinse and dry the hair completely.

Step 4

Sub-section the other side into 7 pie slices and apply the ChromaSilk VIVIDS Rainbow formulas separating each section with foil or meche sheets.

Pro Tip

Apply ChromaSilk VIVIDS generously to both sides of the hair, reloading your brush every 3 inches.

Process all 30 minutes at room temperature.

Step 5

Rinse the VIVIDS side first one section at a time with cold water and high water pressure until the water runs clear, then apply Color Protect Condition. Rinse and shampoo the Pearl side with PRAVANA’s Color Protect Cleanse and apply Color Protect Condition. Rinse all together and style as desired.

Pro Tip

Prescribe PRAVANA’s Color Protect Regimen which has antioxidant properties to stop residual oxidation and protects color for up to 60 shampoos.
