Texture Services

When adding colorpHlex to your perm services, first follow the manufacturer’s instruction on the brand of color you are using.

PROCESS
After the perm has been processed as normal, rinsed and blotted per manufacturer’s directions. Before neutralizing, spray colorpHlex Step 1 directly on the hair while it is on the rods.

TIP: To apply with a non-spraying applicator (like a nozzle bottle) mix 1 part colorpHlex Step 1 to 3 parts water (ex. 4ml Step 1 to 12ml water).

Wait 3 to 5 minutes to allow Step 1 to penetrate to the ends of the hair. (Delaying the neutralizer even longer does not create a problem and can even improve your results.)

NEUTRALIZING
Before applying the neutralizer, blot again if necessary, apply neutralizer and leave on for the full time suggested by the manufacturer.

NOTE: It is important to remember that you do not want to apply Step 2 to any area of the hair that has not been treated with colorpHlex Step 1 first. To ensure all of the hair has been treated with Step 1, apply Step 1 with a fine mist bottle to any areas of the hair that is not being chemically treated.

AFTER NEUTRALIZING
Remove the rods, rinse and apply a small amount (about ¼oz. or 7.5ml) of colorpHlex Step 2 and leave on the hair for up to 10 minutes. Rinse the colorpHlex Step 2 from the hair and proceed as usual.
