The color generally will only last one shampoo; however, if the hair is more porous, such as color-treated blonde hair, it can last a couple shampoos. You can use a clarifying shampoo, such as Kenra Clarifying Shampoo or Tressa's Remove All Plus Shampoo to remove the color more quickly.
- Start with washed and dried hair. Style the hair as you wish.
- Wear a clean towel and hold the bottle about 12 to 18 inches from the strands you want to coat.
- Isolate the hair you want to color and shake the can well and spray hair. Hold the can further away if you want to coat the entire head. It can be easy to overdo color, so don't over spray. Try to apply in very short bursts; it's always easier to add more product than to remove it later. Have a friend spray hard to reach areas.
- To create streaky effect, take an old, but tight fitting plastic shower cap and poke small holes into it, where you want to color your head. Section out your hair into the holes, piece by piece and spray each chunk separately. After color dries, touch up the top roots or any other areas you might have missed.
- A good color spray foam: Goldwell Soft Color or Redken Color Rebel
- Prep your hair. Make sure to wet the hair first so the color will attach to it. However if you’re blonde, do not wet the hair before chalking unless you want the color to stay in longer.
- Apply the chalk to the strand of hair in a downward motion, twist the hair as you chalk. You can try for a fun hombre look, or just do a couple strands.
- Let it dry. You can blow-dry your hair, but we recommend air drying so that you don't blow off the chalk.
- Seal the color in with a flat iron or a curling iron to add waves. Apply hair spray as a final step.

- Recommend you wear gloves with application.
- Wax gels are water based and come with an applicator brush. Squeeze a small amount of wax onto finger tip and run application brush through product.
- Apply to hair using narrow or wide strokes, depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Let dry.
