Color Correction Arsenal

Advanced Formulation • Lesson Three*

It’s a terrible feeling to think you “can’t” fix something because you don’t have the right product.

Although the color lines we use try to make things easy for us by providing a product for every scenario, it's good to understand the complex issues your clients will commonly come in with so you can be educated enough to alter your formulas easily with even the most limited materials available.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to use Pure Tone Mix-In's
  • How to Removing Color Buildup
  • The Protocol for Filling Hair
  • Simple Adjustments for Resistant Hair
  • Lightener and Minerals DO NOT MIX
  • Fixing an "over-toning" situation
  • Prepping for color corrections

This lesson is all about the “when and why’s” of color corrections. We will discuss the three ways to make a "Decolorizing Shampoo", we will discuss the three ways to make permanent color stronger, and most importantly:

We will discuss why Minerals and Lightener Do Not Mix! It’s entirely possible that you will have a situation on your hands one day like this:

  • Boiling Foil Packets
  • Strong Sulfur Smell
  • Lightener turning to liquid when it touches hair

I’m going to tell you how to avoid this horrific chemical reaction by being able to spot the clients with the signs of heavy minerals or metal buildup. This whole lesson is critical, it can be reduced to one theme: When you are thoughtful about your formulations, and begin giving clients exactly what they need, they will never leave you! That’s real client retention.

After purchasing this lesson, my biggest piece of advice is to watch the video first, and then watch it again while answering the workbook questions. It's important that you actually understand your answers so you can remember this information while working behind the chair.

This Single Lesson Purchase Includes 1 video lesson (45 minutes) and 1 workbook.
