  1. Shampoo and towel dry your hair.

  2. Wear protective gloves and a rubber apron to keep the colour from penetrating onto your clothes or skin.

  3. Mix between one third to one half of a tube of Color Touch with the dedicated developer Color Touch Emulsion in a small metal bowl. Use two parts emulsion for every one part of colour.

  4. Using a hair colouring brush, apply the colour mixture evenly beginning at the roots and working toward the ends. If your roots are darker than your ends, leave the mixture on your roots for five minutes before continuing to colour the rest of your hair.

  5. Let the mixture soak into the hair for 20 minutes.

  6. Add warm water to your hair and massage through from roots to ends. Wash your complete head thoroughly with warm water. Shampoo and condition your hair.

  7. Tip

    Use a colour-saving shampoo and conditioner to help your new hair colour last longer.


    Throw away any unused colour mixture.
