A few tips to help you color with total confidence: SENSITIVITY TEST-It is recommended you do a sensitivity test before using Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit. Perform test at least 48 hours before use, even if you have already used this or other coloring products. Test represents an important precaution. However, even if a sensitivity test has been carried out, you may still experience an allergic reaction. Test is not a guarantee of avoiding future reactions. Always consult a doctor if you have any questions/concerns. Using a plastic utensil, mix a 1/2 tsp of Toning Glaze with 3/4 tsps Toning Glaze Activator. Use a cotton swab to apply a quarter-sized amount to a small patch of skin behind your ear or inside elbow. Keep dry. Wait 48 hours. If there is no sign or change to the area, then you are ready to color.
STRAND TEST. Do a lightening preview test to determine the approximate timing required to reach your desired degree of lightness. This is particularly important if your hair has been previously chemically treated (see Important Safety Warnings). Create a test strand by selecting a 1/4" wide strand of hair from an underneath section, and place an elastic band 2" from the root. Put on the gloves provided in the kit, and use a plastic spoon or container to thoroughly mix a 1/2 tsp of Lightening Cream thoroughly with 1 teaspoon of Lightening Activator. Apply mixture to the entire strand, and start timing. After 10 minutes, wipe the strand clean. If the hair strand is not light enough, re-apply the highlighting mixture and check it every 5 minutes until you achieve the desired results. Total processing time should not exceed 60 minutes. Rinse and dry the strand. Write down this optimal time duration to use when processing Light Works. Please see the instructions included in your Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit for the best application to achieve your desired results.
