The Half Kit application is ideal for users hoping to touch up new growth gray roots every 3-5 weeks, or as often as new growth requires.
If your hair is more than 30% gray, resistant or there is any amount of white hair present, please see our Resistant Hair Root Touch Up Method.
For the week before your treatment use our Chelating Shampoo 3-4 times, with one of those applications 24 hours prior to the treatment. 80% of municipal water is hard water, and all well water is hard water. Chelating shampoo is for Pre-Hairprint only. It is not a daily use shampoo.
Note about Prepare Pretreatment- You do not need to pull Prepare Pretreatment all the way through if you are treating new growth roots only. Using Prepare on the length too frequently or using Prepare on previously chemically processed hair can result in temporary dryness. You can buy additional pre-treatment here if needed.
