Make sure your hair is dry, mix the dye and developer together, take the bottle and mix it by shaking and turning it over and over, make sure it is well mixed together pour it on your hair rubbing it and into your scalp rubbing it in to your roots, by the ear and temple make sure to put plenty of dye on there and the top towards the back rub it in. let it stand on your hair for 20 Min. then rinse it but at first just put enough water on your hair to form a suds like a shampoo, then take your head out of water, staying over the sink, rub it like you are shampooing rub it especially good round ears and temple, top of scalp towards the back, after you are done doing that and you think the dye is totally rubbed into the scalp and hair, then rinse with luke warm water, keep rinsing till you see the water clear, then you are done.
