Uses:Creates a rich long-lasting color spectrum with luminosity, shine and beautiful gray coverage. Conditioner helps lock in first day color vibrancy and keeps hair silky and resilient week after week. From roots to ends, color won't fade out, turn dull or brassy. Pro-Precise applicator features extended tip designed to part hair and reach roots quickly, precisely, easily. 5A is a cocoa brown shade with ash tones, which will minimize red/orange tones. For optimal color results, use on dark blonde to darkest brown hair. If you hesitate between two preference shades, choose the lightest one. On more than 50% gray, your results will be slightly lighter-looking.
