Welcome to your tutorial.
We are non longer offering live tutorials, however we have a recorded session here hosted by Colour Expert Lloyd Court which will guide you through your Colour Kit and your application process
Below we have also included a step by step of a roots application which will guide you on the best practice for an optimum application.
We hope this helps you get the best from your hair colour application.
ROOTS STEP BY STEP
Here are some helpful tips which will help you get the most out of your colour kit.
If you are doing a ROOT APPLICATION: USING INOA
Section your hair and get it ready BEFORE you mix up the colour. This is because it might take a while to section your hair and the colour starts to go off as soon as it is mixed and in the open air. This could make the results diminish slightly.
Apply the colour in very thin sections as this will ensure maximum coverage. (Thin lines) Finger width or even smaller if your hair is thick.
Really push the colour into the roots using the supplied tint brush.
Once all the roots have been covered, leave for 35 mins (unless we have given you different instructions. )
SECTION HAIR FIRST
THEN MIX COLOUR
LEAVE FOR 35 MINS
Then remove the colour once the full development time has been reached.
Some simple things to remember:
You should do an allergy test first.
Every colour has different ingredients so worth doing. Simply put a small amount of the colour discreetly behind your ear. You can use a cotton wool bud to do this. Leave for 48 hours – if you don’t have any irritations or red blotches – then everything is OK.
If you use this exact colour regularly, and your last application was less than 6 months ago, you don’t need to re-test - unless you have had a tattoo, are pregnant, have recently given birth, are taking medication, or you have had any other skin allergies or reactions to any other products. In any of these situations, you must have another allergy test.
You can download our allergy test guidance form above.
Colour can be messy – so wear and old T shirt and do it somewhere that it doesn’t matter if it touches the floor. ( EG A Tiled floor) But make sure you clean off any spills quickly. Colour will stain almost anything if it is left for a while.
Use rubber gloves (supplied) as your colour will stain your hands
When rinsing off the colour – first just massage in the colour until it gets really frothy. Don’t add water at this stage as the colour is oil based. Really massage it well until it starts to feel frothy. It should begin to feel like a thick frothy shampoo. This process is called emulsifying the colour. It will really help you successfully remove all the colour. Then rinse it out thoroughly using warm water. Rinse till the water runs clear. Make sure you get to the difficult places like behinds the ears and the nape of the neck where the hair can be thickest. If you do this first, it will really help the colour come out easily. You then just shampoo it twice to remove all the colour residue. The condition as usual.
MASSAGE IN WELL TILL FROTHY ( EMULSIFY)
THEN RINSE THOROUGHLY TILL WATER RUNS CLEAR
THEN TWO SHAMPOOS
Your Hairline. You can put a little Vaseline around your hairline – this will help stop staining on the skin – But do make sure not to let it get into the hair as this would stop the colour from working.
And that’s it – you’re good to go!!
