AFTER COLORING

DISCOVER HOW TO MAINTAIN VIBRANT COLOR, ADDED MOISTURE AND LUMINOUS SHINE

  • To maintain color intensity, it is recommended to recolor every 4-6 shampoos.
  • When shampooing your hair in between recoloring applications, use Creme of Nature Pure Honey Sulfate Free Moisturizing Dry Defense Shampoo to cleanse the hair and provide a healthy level of shine. To maintain well-moisturized colored hair, use Creme of Nature Pure Honey Sulfate Free Moisturizing Dry Defense Conditioner or Moisture Replenish & Strength Hair Mask.
  • For added moisture, apply the Creme of Nature Pure Honey Sulfate Free Break Up Breakage Leave-In Conditioner after rinsing out the conditioner or hair mask. A daily leave-in conditioner is beneficial to keeping all hair types hydrated and for refreshing curls.

STEP 1

PRELIMINARY SKIN TEST

Clean a small area on the skin that is sensitive, such as behind the ear or forearm. Apply a small amount of product to the area and allow to dry. After 48 hours, wash the area gently with soap and water. If you show any abnormalities of the skin, do not proceed with the hair coloring process.

STEP 2

PREPARATION (VIVID SHADES ONLY)

For maximum results and vibrant color, pre-lighten hair before color application.

STEP 3

COLOR PREVIEW TEST

To see how your new color will look, use the remaining mixture from your allergy test. Snip a small swatch of hair (1/4 inch) and tape it at one end. Place the swatch in the test mixture, making sure that each hair strand is completely covered. Leave in mixture for 25 minutes (Natural Shades) or 15 minutes (Vivid Shades). Rinse thoroughly and dry to preview your color.

STEP 4

SHAMPOO

Shampoo hair with the Pure Honey Moisturizing Dry Defense Shampoo, then towel dry hair.

STEP 5

APPLY COLOR

Part towel-dried hair into sections where you want to apply the color. Wearing gloves, apply the product to each section avoiding direct contact with the scalp. Be sure to fully saturate hair with the product.

Tip: If using the Natural Shades for gray coverage, apply the color to gray hair first prior to applying to each section

STEP 6

SET TIMER

Cover hair with a plastic cap and process at room temperature or with heat for 25 minutes (Natural Shades) or 15 minutes (Vivid Shades). Discard unused product.

Tip: For gray coverage, process Natural Shades up to 25 minutes with heat.

STEP 7

RINSE

Wearing gloves, rinse hair thoroughly with warm water until the water runs clear.

STEP 8

CONDITION

For increased moisture and softness, condition hair for 5 minutes using the Pure Honey Moisturizing Dry Defense Conditioner. Rinse and style as usual.
