ROOT TOUCH UPS

You will need:

  • Herbatint hair colour pack or packs if mixing 2 colours together
  • Herbatint Tinting Kit
  • Herbatint Normalising Shampoo
  • Herbatint Royal Cream Regenerating Conditioner
  • Root regrowth – a good inch at least!

You can apply Herbatint to previously coloured hair that has not been coloured with Herbatint but still follow this method.

When mixing colours ALWAYS use equal amount of colour and developer,
i.e.
Using just one colour mix 30ml of colour with 30ml of developer.
Using two colours mix 15ml of one colour with 15ml of another colour and 30ml of developer.

STEP 1 Put on gloves contained in Herbatint pack and wrap the protective cape in the Tinting Kit around your shoulders.

STEP 2 Using the measuring jug from the Tinting Kit pour out the required amount of colour from the green bottle(s) and put into a bowl. Replace cap tightly on colour bottle.

STEP 3 Pour out the equal amount of developer from the white bottle and put into the bowl. Replace cap tightly on developer bottle.

STEP 4 Mix colour and developer together to form a gel like consistency using the brush.

STEP 5 Section the hair and begin to apply the colour mix to the root regrowth area only. Work from front to the back of the scalp. At the end of application leave to process for 30 minutes.

STEP 6 After 30 minutes apply the remaining colour mix in the bowl to the ends of the hair only working from front to back. At the end of application leave to process for 10 minutes.

STEP 7 At the end of the processing time(40 minutes in total) add some water to the hair, emulsify the product with the Herbatint Normalising Shampoo from the sachet then wash until water runs clear.

STEP 8 Apply the Herbatint Royal Cream Regenerating Conditioner from the sachet all over the hair. Leave for 5 minutes then rinse, dry and style as usual.

STEP 9 Remove cape, then wash and dry together with brush and measure cup and keep for another time.

RESULT Beautiful, natural hair colour and roots all gone!
