How To Mix The Sunset Spritz

It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Click below to watch a quick tutorial and learn how to mix up your cocktail-inspired hair color in minutes. 

Take a Few Minutes To Prep For Mess-Free Success

Like any color-depositing conditioner or hair dye, oVertone Coloring Conditioners contain pigment. And that means they can leave pesky stains. But the good news is that it only takes a few minutes to avoid it. 

  • Cover your counters and sink with plastic or an oversized towel. 
  • Throw on a black shirt or wrap a black towel around your shoulders to keep color off your shoulders and clothes. 
  • Wear gloves while coloring your hair to avoid temporary pink stains on your hands. 

Apply Your Custom Color Like A Pro  

  1. Section hair into 4-6 segments and secure with a duckbill or crocodile clip. 
  1. Apply to clean dry hair, one segment at a time. Make sure to thoroughly saturate every strand for best results (the wetter, the better) and run a wide tooth comb through your hair to distribute color evenly. 
  1. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cool or lukewarm water and style as usual. That’s it!

Customize It

For a warmer, more vivid orange, change your ratio to 2 parts Ginger: 1 part Vibrant Orange : 1 part Neon Yellow. 

Want a subtler result on platinum or light blonde hair? Mix the recommended ratio with a deep conditioner like The Remedy. Use 3 parts The Remedy : 1 part Sunset Spritz. Before applying your color, do a strand test. If your color is too subtle, adjust the ratio to be 2 parts The Remedy : 1 part Sunset Spritz.

Expert Advice For Achieving & Maintaining Your Cheers-Worthy Color 

Test it out first. We strongly recommend doing a strand test before you apply any kind of hair dye or hair color. Not sure how to? Read this.

Clarify before you color. Wash your hair with a clarifying cleanser like The Fader Shampoo to remove any oil, buildup or dirt before you apply color. 

Skip the conditioner. Conditioning before you color creates an extra barrier between your strands and the hair color itself, which can make it harder for the pigment to stick. 

Skip the sulfates. After you’ve achieved your ideal shade, say no to shampoos and conditioners that contain sulfates. They’ll cause your color to fade faster, and let’s be honest, they’re just not good for your hair.
