Excellence Creme® Application Instructions

Step by step guide to using the Excellence Crème product

Before You Color


    Do a skin allergy test by cleansing a quarter sized area of skin in the bend of your elbow. Using a plastic utensil, mix a small amount of the formula and apply a small portion of it to your skin.


    Do not wash test area for 48 hours to see if reaction occurs. If there is any irritation call a doctor before coloring your hair.


    Do a strand test by applying color to a small section of hair before covering your whole head. This will give you an idea of how long to keep the color mixture on in order to achieve your desired results and gives you a nice preview of what your hair will look like.



Apply Excellence Creme® Pre-Color Protective Treatment


    Before coloring: protect fragile ends and help prepare hair to accept color evenly.
    To open tube, twist round tip so that it breaks off.
    Massage product into dry ends before coloring.
    Avoid the root area.
    Wait for 2 minutes.
    Do not rinse.
    Continue with mixing color and Appl. Instructions.


Mix


Step 1
Put on colorist gloves and twist off the tip of the Developer (1) bottle cap before beginning. Remove cap from bottle.
Step 2

Pierce the opening of the Color Creme (2) tube completely with the point provided in the top of the cap. Do not point either end of the tube toward the face while opening or using. Squeeze entire contents of Color Creme (2) into the Developer (1) bottle and recap the bottle.


Step 3

Place your finger over open tip, point away from your face and shake thoroughly until mixture is totally blended. Developer bottle is now your haircolor applicator bottle.


CAUTION: Do not squeeze or put pressure on Color Creme tube until you have pierced the tube opening completely. Use care in working with tube contents. Contact between contents and eyes may cause blindness.

NOTE: Never leave the tip of the developer bottle unopened after mixing – the container may burst. Use immediately and do not save any unused mixture.
