There are incredibly lot of application methods, the following are the two basic:
Application in the form of a rinse solution: the macerate is prepared by diluting the colouring with the diluted water (warm boiled), in a ratio 1:10, which we leave brew for about 24 hours. Subsequently it is used as a rinsing solution or added to a shampoo and hair conditioner.
Application in the form of a mask/wrap: we let the boiled water cool (to about 60 degrees). In a bowl mix hot water with the colouring and mix it into a homogenous paste (in a ratio of approximately 70% water and 30% mixture). Cover the paste and let it act for about 30 minutes. Into the resulting paste other additives can be added, listed in the table below. Then gently put on disposable rubber gloves and with a brush or hand only, apply the mixture onto clean and dry hair until it is hot. The paste is applied from the roots towards the ends, your strands. Apply the mixture generously over the entire length of your hair using your fingers and massage it into the hair and scalp. After applying the paste, wrap your hair with a foil or plastic cover (cap), then with a towel, so as the colouring effect could better develop. We let the mixture act for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 23 hours (best results are achieved after only 3-4 hours, but it is best to leave it wrapped overnight)! After achieving the colouring effects of the mixture, mold in a usual, normal way.
