Best Application Method – Standard Application

Choose the best application method for your hair type and its current condition.

You might need to check the colour chart to ensure you will be using the right shade.

The success of HAIRPRINT lies in the state of the hair. If the hair seems blocked or coated with anything, the colour restorer will not be able to penetrate the hair shaft.

The Standard application is a simpler process for hair that is:

  • Less than 50% grey.
  • If the percentage of coverage does not concern you with the odd grey hair staying uncoloured.
  • Not colour resistant/stubborn.

The Regrowth application is the same as the standard application.

When concentrating on regrowth or roots only, protect the ends you don’t want to colour.

You would protect the ends in the following scenarios:

  • You don’t want the ends any darker.
  • Your mid-lengths and ends are not in good condition and are compromised/damaged.
  • Your hair is currently much lighter than what your natural hair used to be.

The Resistant application is ideal for hair that is stubborn to absorbing colour or has proven to be resistant in the past. Essentially you are refilling the hair shaft that once had eumelanin.

  • The natural colour will not restore in one colour application.
  • You are in control of how much natural colour and pigment you restore.
  • You can repeat the three steps as regularly as you like. You are mostly filling an empty “cylinder” with pigment. Once it is full, it will possibly start to go darker than intended.
  • Try the double application method upon your first HAIRPRINT treatment.

Maintenance – regularity of treatments

Often we are asked questions regarding the maintenance of hair treated with HAIRPRINT Colour Restorer. There is, however, no definitive answer to the question “how often do I need to apply the treatment?” Through the treatment, you restore melanin and its essential amino acids to your hair lost as you age.

There are however various scenarios that you may find yourself in:

1. No grey hair present.  If you do not have grey hair, but you wish to grow out your natural colour, this solution is for you. If you have moved to cleaner products and have subsequently noticed your hair lacks lustre, the HAIRPRINT Colour Restorer treatment is for you.HAIRPRINT will feed your hair, adding vitality and shine to your previously dull locks.

 2. Beginning stages of grey. HAIRPRINT is the best option for you if you find yourself at the beginning stages of going grey and you have had little to no exposure to chemical dyes. The regularity of treatment application is up to you, depends on the percentage of grey you have and how quickly your hair grows. For maintenance, read more on using half a kit.

For the above options, make use of the standard application method.

3. Currently using chemical hair dyes every 4 – 8 weeks. If you find yourself colouring your grey hair monthly, HAIRPRINT gives you a safer option. With each application of the Colour Restorer, the coverage improves. The regrowth softens and when compared to conventional colouring and its regrowth, seems less harsh.

Read up on our transition tips, when considering whether or not to colour your ends, and when to protect them.

Please note: Half a kit is often sufficient when doing roots only but may prove challenging in the case of very thick or coarse hair.

The regularity of colour treatments is dependent on hair growth and personal goals. For some clients, this means the treatment application takes place every 4-6 weeks while others apply more frequently.

4. Resistant  Grey or  White Hair. If you find your hair to be resistant or stubborn a double application can be done to improve coverage. When restoring the melanin, we are filling an empty tube of tiny little particles; it might take a while for all the pockets to fill again. We have found the more often the treatment is applied, the more receptive the hair becomes.
