Helpful Application Advice

Shampoo the hair with a pH acid balanced shampoo (we recomend our matrix colour care shampoo which will help get better and longer lasting results), this will help give the hair the correct acid balance thus allowing Directions hair colour to achieve the best results. Comb Directions into the hair until it becomes frothy, the pigments will have penetrated in to the hair, lighter shades may require a little more combing.


Processing time is between 15 and 30 minutes, a plastic cap will contain the heat on the hair helping to achieve a better result.


Rinse the hair thoroughly away from the face with warm water until all the residue dye has been removed.


All directions colours can be mixed with each other so to create your own unique shade.


Directions will take faster and last longer on chemically treated hair eg permed or bleached.


If more than one colour is applied the hair must be washed and dried separately, greater care must be taken when partially colouring lighter hair.


All the above advice has been taken from the manufacturer and is to be used as a guide only, The Cutting Crew accepts no liability if you choose to apply your own colour and not have your colour applied in our salon, Thankyou.


Do's & Dont's




  • Do wear rubber or plastic gloves when applying the hair colour.


  • Do use vaseline, petroleum jelly or baby oil around the hairline to avoid staining of the forehead.


  • As with all hair colours, we advise a swatch test first.




  • Do not mix Directions with peroxide.


  • Do not use on eyelashes.


  • Do not use shampoo with conditioner included.

Polite Warning


Due to the semi permanent nature of Directions certain colours can sometimes leave a slight stain on materials and surfaces.


NOTE: Shades may vary at manufacturers discretion.
