Remove the tint bottle or tube from each of the two hair dye boxes. Use the marker to draw a horizontal line on the bottles to divide the mixture into two halves. For gel tints, squeeze the tubes to evenly disperse the dye mixture, then draw a line on the tubes at the halfway point. If you prefer to measure out the correct amount instead, determine how many ounces of tint are in the container (two ounces is the norm), divide it in half and pour or squeeze that amount into a measuring cup.
Remove one developer solution from either of the two hair color boxes. The developer is a creamy, white liquid packaged in a bottle with a pointy cap. Unscrew the cap from the bottle and cut off the marked tip end with your scissors.
Twist off the cap of one of the color tints and pour or squeeze the measured amount into the developer solution. Repeat this process with the second tint color. Screw the pointy cap back on the developer bottle.
Put on the rubber gloves from one of the color boxes and use your gloved forefinger to cover the open tip of the developer bottle. Shake the bottle thoroughly to blend the two tints with the developer solution. This blended mixture gives you 30 to 40 minutes of color time before it chemically breaks down and becomes ineffective.
Follow the manufacturer's directions to apply the mixture to your hair to create your own sizzling color blend results.
