Retired Clients, Relaxers, and Color!
Hair by Benita Blocker. This client is retired and fights the "gray." About every 10 weeks, we relax with Paul Mitchell relaxer- regular strength because gray hair can be a little resistant. We also use the Jazzing Coffee Bean color at her roots only. It gives her a highlighted effect. Amazingly, each relaxer service actually lifts the previous color deposits to a nice highlighted color. The "previous color deposit" is dark at the start of the relaxer service. So there is "white" new growth followed by "dark hair" followed by highlighted-looking hair. But by the time we relax, there is very little dark hair left so when I re-deposit the Coffee Bean color at the roots, then you get what you see here! Love it!
Hair by Benita Blocker. Hair was curled with marcel iron #40 which is the same size as a aqua color magnetic roller.
