Back to Normal
When trying to stop further lightening by applying water to targeted sections, you’re simply diluting, rather than neutralizing the chemical reaction.
Suggestion: Instead of spritzing foiled sections with water or doing partial rinses at the bowl—which increase the chance for bleed marks—mix a batch of Malibu C Crystal Gel normalizer in a tint bottle and apply it to sections that have reached their targeted levels.
Because active peroxide can continue oxidizing for several days post-service and cause subsequent color fade and damage, after rinsing and shampooing, run Crystal Gel throughout the hair to ensure that the highlights you see today will look the same for weeks to come. (MalibuC.com)
