How do I use Strawberry Leopard Hair Color?

Yasss, get into it! For the most poppin’ color possible, you should pre-lighten your hair to a light blonde before use. This ready-to-use formula can be applied directly to clean, dry hair or with a tint brush and bowl. Do not mix with developer.

Use gloves and an apron to protect from staining. We recommend sectioning hair into 4 even sections and working the color into 1 inch pieces to ensure hair is fully saturated with product.

To make sure you’re stuntin’ for up to 8 weeks, shampoo with color-care products and rinse in cold water.

*For the Pastel Mixer: Mix in a bowl with other Strawberry Leopard colors to create your own rare shade. Then, evenly apply evenly to pre-lightened hair.


How do I do a strand test?

We wanna make sure your color is giving what it’s supposed to give! So, here’s what you do:
• Shampoo and fully dry your hair. Do NOT use conditioner.
• Select approximately 1-inch strands of hair in a hidden area of your hair.
• Evenly distribute the Strawberry Leopard hair color to the selected test strands until it becomes frothy.
• Wrap the test strands with tin foil to protect the surrounding hair and let the color process for at least 30 minutes.
• Rinse the test strands in cool water away from the face until water runs clear.
• Dry hair and see the color outcome. It may be necessary to pre-lighten the hair prior to using Strawberry Leopard for bright and vibrant color that matches the swatch on the bottle.
• You may choose a different shade of hair color, or use the Pastel Mixer, to dilute other colors for lighter shades and/or mix different colors to achieve different results. Whatever you do, we know you’re gonna look fine AF.
• You may repeat the test as needed.
