When touching up your regrowth you may find your Colour is more dominant and vibrant at your roots, leaving the rest of your Hair bland with an inconsistent Colour. Combing your Colour mixture through every time you Colour will cause Colour Build Up, un healthy Hair and potential banding. So instead we Colour the remainder of the Hair using the Colour Top Up Technique.
The Colour Top Up Technique is to apply Colour to the lengths and ends of your Hair during the last 10 minutes of processing time, when you have done a regrowth touch up. It is a great way to add shine and vibrancy back into the ends of your Hair, leaving you with an even and fabulous Colour to match your roots.
How To: Colour Top Up Technique
After applying your Colour to your roots, set aside some extra left over mixture.
During the final 10 minutes of processing time, get your Colour mixture and add a splash of water to dilute the Colour. Do not add more water than left over mixture.
Now this part could get messy. Apply your diluted mixture to your Hair, focusing only on your un Coloured lengths and ends. Give it a good massage, really lathering it up making sure your Hair is covered. Then wash off as normal.
