5. Processing Time
The lightening effect depends on the length of the processing time and on how dark your natural hair color is.
As part of the lightening process, Brillance Pure Diamond Blonds lightens the natural color pigments of the hair. During this time, you will notice your hair go through red/gold tones that will lighten during processing. This is perfectly normal, do not reduce the processing time or rinse the product off at this stage.
For an optimal lightening result, the processing time should not be shortened.
To determine the correct processing time, please check it during application:
- Put on gloves again.
- After 25 minutes, wipe a single thin strand of hair clear in order to check the level of lightening achieved. To achieve a lighter result, apply the mixture from the surrounding hair onto the same strand and increase the processing time. Please note that the darker your natural hair color is, the more processing time is required to achieve a lighter result (but the processing time should not exceed 45 minutes).
