Artist Tip: Take triangular subsections, and start in the mid-shaft area; this gives you more control.

Step Four: Utilizing a color board, push the product into the hair. Be careful not to over saturate the already porous ends.  Apply to the rest of the hair using angled subsections moving down the hair shaft as you go toward the back of the head. Make sure you are focusing on the outer surface of the hair sections.
