Here is what you can use it for:
- Use as a base layer on dark hair, this will make the purple, pink or orange color bug brighter.
- Use as a base layer on lighter color hair. It will make any other color on top look very vivid
- Create platinum highlights on any color hair with no chemical damage.
- Use on blonde root regrowth to disguise those roots and extend time between appointments.
- Use as a dry shampoo in any color hair.
Here is the best application technique for pops of color:
- Use a pomade as a base, it will hold the color longer and give the powder a substance to adhere to making the color brighter and more noticeable.
- Section your hair, somewhat isolating the pieces that you want to color. You can do just the tips, or ends of a larger section of your hair, or individual long strands.
- Take your favorite pomade, mine is Kevin Murphy Sticky.Business, grab a half dime sized amount, place it in your palm and rub your palms together. Rub them like your are applying lotion to just your palms, keep rubbing until the pomade is no longer white, but is clear in appearance.
- Apply the pomade to your determined sections by smoothing downward in the direction of the cuticle and sort of smearing the paste in like lotion for your hair.
- Take the cap off of the color bug and place the colored chalk piece against your section, using your fingers apply pressure to the hair using the color bug as the backing. This will get a nice thick coating of chalk on the hair. Repeat until desired depth of color is achieved.
- If you are going for a second color on top I would reapply the pomade to your hair and then repeat the application process, but don't make your hair look greasy with too much pomade.
- Keep your hands off it for the rest of the evening and I would shy away from light colored shirts so you don't get residual color on them.
