Before every color and lightening service, prep your clients’ hair with Joico Defy Damage ProSeries 1 Bond-Protecting Color Optimizer. It instantly helps shield hair from chemical service damage, improves color deposit, and provides greater, more even lift when lightening. Shake the can well; spray onto two-inch sections throughout the head using short bursts, then comb through.
First, divide the hair into quad sections equally.

Next, divide the hair on the top and sides into 8 triangular sections, leaving out the area from the occipital bone to the nape. The width of the triangles should reflect the density and head shape of the client.
