Resistant Application for stubborn grey or coarse hair

The resistant application is ideal for stubborn grey hair. If your hair is very coarse, we recommend this application.

N.B. Before you begin, first determine if the Cleansing shampoos are necessary to remove blockers that could inhibit the process if there is residue or build up on the hair.

With this method, you are making use of the ‘double’ application within the two steps of the Restore process. Keep in mind that it now becomes four ‘applications’ of Restore and then the Complete.

How to PREPARE the hair for the resistant application.
  • Wet hair and shampoo with the full sachet of Prepare in the kit. Work bicarbonate of soda into the shampoo at the roots for stubborn areas.
  • Leave on for anywhere from 5 minutes – 30 minutes
  • Rinse
  • Remove excess water by towel drying the hair.
Step One
Part 1 RESTORE

1. Mix 1 x Restore Liquid and 1 x Restore Powder components from the kit into a non-aluminium bowl. ( Depending on the length and density of your hair, you might want to split the sachets, using 1 sachet twice for the first 2 applications of Restore)

2. Once mixed the Restore swells into a mousse and changes in colour from pale pink to a dark red. Apply the mixture within 6 minutes if possible, working into the hair as you would a conditioner. Saturate hard to cover areas such as hairline and temples. Work into the lengths of the hair. The longer and more porous your hair is, the less product is needed.

3. Process for 15 minutes.

4. When the time is up, do not rinse. Instead, wipe away any excess colour restorer with paper towel.

Part 2 RESTORE

1.Follow the same steps as above to apply your second application. Mixing Restore Liquid and Restore Powder components. (If you have split a kit use the second half of the first set of sachets)

2. Apply working into the hair and mixture already in your hair, or into the lower parts of hair not yet covered. Make sure the mixture is massaged thoroughly into the hair.

3. Leave on for 15 minutes. Do not rinse. Use your hands squeeze out any excess mixture.

4. Follow the same steps as above to apply the second mixture of Restore over the first application.

5. Work in like a conditioner to the mix already on your hair, or into the lower portions of hair not yet covered. Make sure the mixture is massaged thoroughly into the hair.

Upkeep and maintenance vary on the desired outcome, and colouring needs. Doing only the roots or regrowth is dependent on you, your hair, the percentage of grey you have and the result you are after.
