 Formula Two: CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener + 40 Volume CHI Color Generator (Mixing Ratio 1:1.5)

 Formula Three: CHI Shine Shades 8V + CHI Shine Shades Clear + 10 Volume CHI Color Generator (Mixing Ratio 1:1:1)

Step One: Apply CHI Bond & Seal Treatment from scalp to ends.

 Artist Tip: Use a paddle brush after adding CHI Bond & Seal Treatment to remove tangles and to achieve a more even distribution.

 Step Two: Using Formula One, do a zigzag part from the apex down to behind-the-ear on both sides of the head. Leave the back as a third section. This will make three full sections.

Step Three: Starting at the temple area, take a diagonal section approximately ¼ in width.

Step Four: Back comb the roots.

 Artist Tip: Apply CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener to the foils prior. Then apply additional product over the hair strand.

Step Five: Just under the back combed section, apply a generous amount of CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener by pushing the product into the hair.

 Artist Tip: To add extra dimension, concentrate on the mid-shaft pushing the product into the hair. Keep foils neatly folded for secure placement.

Step Six: Keep taking diagonal sections on both sides of the head.

Step Seven: Using Formula Two, start in the nape area, and take two V-shaped sections. Using horizontal sections, back comb and apply CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener from mid-shaft to ends. Finish the crown of the head with diagonal sections.

 Step Eight: Rinse well, and use your favorite CHI Shampoo and CHI Conditioner.

Step Nine: Apply Formula Three to desired areas for 15 minutes. Rinse, shampoo, condition, and style as desired.

 CHI Enviro American Smoothing System Application:

 Step 1: Shampoo hair with the CHI Enviro Purity Shampoo. Leave it on for 5 minutes, and rinse well.

Artist tip: Towel blot the hair dry, and comb through to remove unwanted tangles.

 Step 2: Section the hair into four equal quadrants.

Step 3: Starting in the nape area, take ¼ inch subsections using your tint brush. Apply product ½ inch away from the scalp. Starting in the mid-shaft area, apply through to the ends. Then comb evenly to distribute through the hair shaft staying ⅛ of an inch away from the scalp. 

Artist Tip: Less is more. Avoid using too much product. Apply to one section, and then bring down the next section. Using a comb, marry the two sections together. Continue this process until full head application is complete.

Step 4: Apply to entire head and process at room temperature per the directions for hair type.

 Artist tip: Pre-section the hair into 2–4 subsections. If desired, add a couple of drops of the CHI Enviro Smoothing Serum to help detangle hair prior to drying.

 Step 5: Blow dry the hair smooth using a round or paddle brush, and then resection hair into four sections.

Step 6: Using ¼ inch subsections starting in the nape area, press each section five times slowly. Use the CHI Lava 1” Hairstyling Iron at 400–410 degrees. Note: Press three times in the mid-shaft first. On the last two presses, do root to ends.

Color Application:

 Formula One: CHI Shine Shades 6V 10z + 10 Volume CHI Color Generator

Formula Two: 1 part CHI Infra High Lift RR + 1 part 10 Volume CHI Color Generator

Artist tip: Using lower volumes are recommended because you have already processed the hair using the CHI Enviro Smoothing System. Process using your professional judgment.

Step 7: Section hair into four equal sections.

Step 8: Apply Formula One from roots to mid-shaft.

Step 9: Apply Formula Two working upward in a V-shaped pattern from the ends to the mid-shaft melting the two formulas together. Process using your professional judgment.

Step 10: Rinse hair until water runs clear using the CHI Enviro Smoothing Shampoo and the CHI Enviro Smoothing Masque.  

Step 11: Towel blot and apply the CHI Enviro Stay Smooth Blow Out Spray and the CHI Enviro Smoothing Serum. For home use, prescribe the CHI Enviro American Smoothing System Home Care Kit.

Step 2: Examine the client’s hair and scalp.

Step 5: Taking ½ inch subsections on a diagonal and using the CHI color board, apply generous amounts of Formula Three. Push the product into the mid-shaft for an even better saturation.

Artist Tip: Feather the mid-shaft area throughout the full application. Leave out desired section by placing cotton in between.      

 Step 6: Start in the nape area, take V-shaped sections using the same application as sides. Around the occipital bone, start taking horizontal sections moving up the head. Let it sit for around 25 minutes. Use your professional judgement.

Step 7: Shampoo and condition with your favorite CHI wet-line products and style as desired.
