Fishtail Braid

As if fishtails aren’t wild enough! Clip the top half of you hair up and color the ends of the remaining section. We chose the coral color, Without a Coral. Once dry, weave all of your hair together for a peek-a-boo effect!

Removal 101

To remove Color Rebel easily and effectively, use this method before shampooing.

Oil Cleansing: Apply a dab of Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil or Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine to each section where you would like to remove the color. Rub each section between your fingers to dissolve and help remove the pigment. Then shampoo using Redken Hair Cleansing Cream and scrub once again with your favorite shampoo!
