Advanced Gray Solution Technique

No ammonia, no peroxide. Advanced Gray Solution shades cover up to 50% gray.

First determine starting Natural hair color Level; then select a shade to achieve the desired result:

  • Enhance natural color: Select shade in the desired Level and Tone
  • Cover up to 50% gray: Choose an Advanced Gray Solution shade in the desired Level and Tone
  • Brighten natural color: Choose a color 1-2 Levels lighter
  • Refresh permed, relaxed hair: Select shade in the desired Level or color-treated hair and Tone


All Advanced Gray Solution shades are intermixable for custom colors. Intermixing with Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color is not recommended. No developer is used with Beautiful Collection shades.


Apply directly from bottle generously and thoroughly to shampooed and towel-dried hair. Can be used immediately following a relaxer. Be sure hair is thoroughly rinsed and shampooed per relaxer directions before applying any Beautiful Collection shade.


Process up to 25 minutes at room temperature. Use of heat is not recommended. Rinse well, do not shampoo.
