The instructions for a starnd test come in each kit.To do a strand test, pour a drop from the color bottle into a ceramic bowl. Then pour a drop of the developer in to the ceramic bowl. Do not use a metal bowl, unless it's stainless steel. Mix the drops together with a q tip and apply this mixture of drops to the small section of hair..a couple of strands. Let this process 30 minutes. Then shampoo and dry.Look at the dry test strand and see if this is a color you would like to have on your entire head. When doing the strand test, make sure you pick a strand that may have gray, so you can see what color the grays will turn. If your hair is longer you may want to mix two drops of each. Make sure to close the unused portion of color and the unused portion of developer and save to use when you are ready to apply the color to your entire hair. You are correct, once you mix the color and the developer you have to use it immediately.
