If the mid-shaft and/or ends are severely faded in depth or tone, you will need to fill hair first for color durability.

1.  Apply new growth application with selected shade of Majirel or INOA.
2.  Mix and immediately apply a DIA Richesse shade one level lighter than your target level for extreme fading.
         • For Brassiness- Mix a DIA Richesse shade one level lighter in the .1 or .2 families (depending on unwanted tone)
3.  Process for 35 minutes.
4.  Rinse and Shampoo with Post Color Shampoo twice.
5.  Apply second gloss of desired final shade with DIA (Light or Richesse).
6.  Process until desired results are achieved (2-20 minutes).
7.  Rinse and Shampoo with Post Color Shampoo.
8.  Apply treatment of Powermix Color or Repair.
9.  Recommend Serie Expert’s Vitamino line for home care.
