Before coloring your hair, put on gloves. Cover your clothes with an old towel or shirt. Gather an applicator bottle OR bowl & brush to mix and apply the color. Have a clock nearby, so that you can check the processing time. And, finally, a post conditioner (we recommend Curl Quench After-Conditioner, sold separately). Apply All About Curls Color on dry, unwashed hair.
Twist cap and apply the Prep + Protect Serum on dry ends/lengths of your hair.
MIX COLOR & DEVELOPER TOGETHER
Measure 2oz of All About Curls® Developer into an applicator bottle OR non-metallic bowl. NOTE: All About Curls Developer is in a 4oz/2 application bottle so use ½ with 1 tube of color. Add 2oz/60ml (one tube) of color to the developer: Pierce the color tube with the reverse side of the cap. Carefully squeeze the entire color contents into the Applicator Bottle or Bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are mixed into a smooth cream. ATTENTION: The color of the mixture may change during the coloration process, but this will not infuence the final color result.
APPLICATION (APPLY TO DRY HAIR):
4A. FULL HEAD APPLICATION: This method is recommended if: You are coloring your hair permanently for the first time. Your previous hair color has completely grown out, has been washed away and no regrowth is visible. APPLY: Apply the entire mixture, strand after strand, onto all of your hair. Work the mixture in with your fingertips. Leave on your hair to develop for 30 minutes.
4B. REGROWTH APPLICATION: This method is recommended if: Your hair has been colored and the regrowth is visible. The ends of your hair are darker or in poor condition. APPLY: Apply ½ of the mixture throughout the whole regrowth area. To do this, part a section of your hair using the tip of the Applicator Bottle or a comb. Apply the mixture along the parting by working it into the roots with your fingertips (leave gloves on). Repeat this procedure for the whole regrowth area. Leave on to develop for 20 minutes. Apply the remaining mixture to the ends of your hair. Work well and leave on for an additional 10 minutes. The processing time in total should be between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on the color intensity you would like to achieve.
- RINSING & AFTER CARE
At the end of processing time, apply warm water to the hair and work into a lather. Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Afterwards, work in conditioner to towel-dried hair and leave it in for 2 minutes. (We recommend Curl Quench After-Conditioner, sold separately.) Rinse thoroughly.
TIPS FROM THE ZOTOS PROFESSIONALS:
Apply a barrier crème around the hairline (conditioner works well). Use the Curl Quench After-Conditioner regularly for curl maintenance.
For best results, use with All About Curls® 20-Volume Developer and All About Curls® Curl Quench After-Color Conditioner.

Why is there ammonia in the permanent hair color? In order for hair color to be permanent, it must have ammonia or an ammonia substitute. Ammonia (NH3) is an alkaline compound of hydrogen and nitrogen that is both naturally occurring and man-made. We chose ammonia because it is more efficient than MEA (Mono-ethanolamine). The MEA molecule has a molecular weight of 61, the molecular weight of ammonia is only 17. Therefore, MEA is 3.5 times larger than ammonia. When permanent hair color and peroxide meet, ammonia acts as a catalyst to start the oxidation reaction. This reaction lightens natural pigment in the cortex and allows the hair dyes to deposit inside the cortex. Then the ammonia flashes off of the hair and is gone. Because of the large-sized molecule, MEA-based permanent hair color products may not lighten efficiently and the MEA stays in the hair during processing, so there is a tendency for the color to developer darker than desired. MEA can also have a higher irritation potential.
