It’s your 1st time using that color. A retouch is considered using the same color a second time.

eta: good luck!

your Fiance is correct — use the first set of instructions.

@newname_99:  when I had blonde highlights and wanted to go all over brown I followed the first set of instructions and then had to use a whole other box tocompletely cover up the highlights. You aren’t retouching it up the same color so you need to follow the first set of directions.

1st set 🙂  I dye mine at home pretty often.

Definately the first instructions, I did the same thing and had to use two bottles (thick hair) and had to give it an extra 5 (wouldn’t necessarily recommend) minutes because it wasn’t getting the inside but unless you have a total mess of hair you should be fine with the first instructions

@newname_99:  are you just matching it to your natural color? If so, then no it doesn’t really matter.

I always just literally put it on my hand and apply it like shampoo no matter what. I’ve never had a problem and it always turns out even *shrug*

I’m a hairstylist… You need to apply from roots to ends and leave it on for 35 min… Make sure it’s a warm brown and not ash or you’ll end up with green hair… To be honest you’re better doing the natural instincts kind the “temporary” type because what you bought is more for grey coverage I would also suggest 2 boxes because your hair needs to be fully saturated or it will be spotty! Good luck!

In future you should test it on a small amount of hair before doing all of it.
