You can view our on-demand video showing step-by-step formulation here.
When formulating BLAZING HIGHLIGHTS it is important to find the natural or color treated level by using the level finder. Keep in mind that the chart is for natural hair and that an additional scoop of X-tra Light Booster Concentrate must be added in addition to what is on the chart for color treated hair. If you have hard water, ad an additional scoop of X-tra Light Booster Concentrate. If you have color-treated hair and hard water, only add 1 additional scoop of X-tra Light Booster Concentrate.
If the new growth area is lighter than the ends, mix two formulas to accommodate the different levels. If the natural regrowth is darker than the ends, the same formula can be used. Always formulate to the darkest level.
