WHAT IS IT? An innovative color corrector that gently removes unwanted permanent color, with a non-progressive, precise control formula that contains no ammonia, peroxide, bleach or formaldehyde.
WHO IS IT FOR? Anyone who requires slight, partial, or full color correction. It may be used to lighten up a shade that is too dark, to fix darkened ends, or to correct an at-home color application.
WHAT DOES IT DO? It gently removes any level of permanent, oxidative hair color, no matter how long it has been in the hair. The exclusive SHSA complex reverses the bonds of oxidative dye molecules, allowing for safe and effective color removal, bringing the hair back to its pre-colored state. The conditioning catalyst promotes unsurpassed shine and condition.
HOW DO YOU USE IT? Combine equal parts of Step 1 (color reducer) and Step 2 (conditioning catalyst). Apply, using applicator bottle or bowl and brush. The thick, creamy consistency ensures quick, easy, and precise application. Process up to 20 minutes, with or without heat. Rinse and shampoo twice, using Sensories™ Clarify™ Shampoo. Apply Step 3 (or 10 volume developer) and process for 10 minutes to activate any remaining color molecules left in the hair. If hair darkens, repeat the entire process (Steps 1, 2, and 3) up to 3 times if necessary. If hair doesn’t darken, rinse and shampoo one last time.

The number of applications varies, depending on whether being used for slight or full color corrections.
INGREDIENTS AND FUNCTIONS:
STEP 1 – COLOR REDUCER SHSA Complex is a mild reducing agent that reverses the oxidative color process by breaking down the bonds of color molecules, allowing for easy shampoo removal. Hydroxyethyl Cellulose is a moisturizing and thickening agent. Methylcloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone are preservatives that keep the product from microbiological contamination.
STEP 2 – CONDITIONING CATALYST Citric Acid Catalyst is an alpha hydroxy acid that adjusts the pH and allows maximum product performance. Cetearyl Alcohol, Dicetyl Phosphate and Ceteth-10 Phosphate are conditioning agents that act in a synergistic fashion to give good wet and dry combability while eliminating flyaways. They impart incredible sheen, luster, and softness to the hair. Pentasodium Pentetate is a chelating agent that binds metals found in hard water that may interfere with the product’s performance.
STEP 3 – PROCESSING LOTION Hydrogen Peroxide reoxidizes any color molecules not completely removed by shampooing. Dimethicone PEG-Meadowfoamate and Simethicone condition the hair while giving it lasting shine.
