THE KIT

SHINY HAIR COLOR ESSENTIALS

Bring back glowing, shiny hair color to your blonde with this radiance-boosting Soft Color shade.

STEP 1

MIX IT UP

Before you apply your hair color, put on gloves and wrap a towel around shoulders to protect from dye transfer. Then, take your Soft Color kit in 83 Light Golden Blonde and add the dye to the developer. Shake up the bottle to mix together.

REFRESH ROOTS

Separate hair into a center parting. Take the just-mixed color formula and apply to roots, using the built-in nozzle for precise application, then blend out with fingertips. Next, create a side parting and glide the color formula along roots, blending again to ensure even coverage. Repeat for the other side, then finish by applying around the hairline.

STEP 3

COVER AND GLOW

Cover the rest of your hair in the creamy color formula, blending with fingertips to ensure even coverage. Wait for twenty minutes to allow the glowing, radiant color to develop before washing thoroughly with shampoo. Our expert tip: double cleanse to ensure no color residue is left behind.

CONDITION YOUR COLOR

To achieve the softest, silkiest hair texture post-coloring, apply the conditioning serum to towel-dried hair. Smooth and detangle using a wide-toothed comb, evenly distributing the formula all over.

STEP 5

READY FOR RADIANCE

Time to dial up the luminosity. Rinse out the conditioner, blow out and style in soft beachy waves to highlight glowing, shiny hair color. Fix in place with a gloss-boosting hairspray.
