Start with dry, clean hair, free of all other hair conditioners, sprays, etc. Wear gloves for application.

**Spray The Original product on your gray strands and roots.**After application, your hair should be damp but not dripping from the excess product.

Massage solution into your hair for complete penetration using your fingertips or a comb or brush.

Let hair dry. Use for up to three consecutive days and stop the daily application when you reach the desired color.

Although it is not necessary to wash your hair on the second and third days of application, wait at least 18 hours after each application if you do and minimize the use of other products during those three days. Wash your hands with soap and water after application.

To color the hair on the temples or new growth on your forehead, spray The Original on a small flat brush and apply it to the gray hair areas.

Like all Gray Riddance products, The Original can be used on relaxed or processed hairbecause it does notcontain lead, peroxide, or ammonia. It is ideal for use with other chemical processes, making it suitable for men and women of all ethnic backgrounds.

Prefer a more uniform color instead of highlights? Use The Original as directed and after 2-3 days, apply a temporary or semi-permanent hair rinse, like cellophane. This process will tone down the highlight effect of The Original making your hair a more uniform color.

The rinse will last longer because The Original opens the hair cuticle allowing the color to penetrate thoroughly.

To ensure the best possible results, **please do a test patch.**Previously used chemicals could cause undesired coloring effects.

If you have recently dyed your hair, wait four weeks. If you have recently relaxed your hair, wait one week before application. Do not use it if you’ve used henna.

Use gloves. As you massage the product into your hair, the excess could get on the skin. Wipe away any excess with water. Skin areas will be temporarily darkened for a few days if the product is not removed from the skin after each use.
