I recently bought a box of l'oreal colour rays in red, and the box came without the little instructions packet  Huh. Can folks who who use colour rays tell me the instructions perchance!? Thanks a bunches T_T

Btw, just out of curiousity, if you store mixed hair dye stuff in a jar, will it keep and for how long?

I don't know about this colour rays business, but mixed hair dye immediately starts to deteriorate.  After about an hour it's probably not worth using.  Hope that helps.

I'd call L'oreal.  There should be a number on the box.

And mixed hairdye, even if it's in a jar, will not keep.

I love Colour Rays. The fuscia is fabulous. Here is a short version of the instructions (this is actually my first post, so I hope it helps!)

Step 1 says "Choose a look", but I'm sure you can do that without their instructions!

2.Mixing: put gloves on. pour all creme developer (#1) in the mixing tray. Open colour streaking creme tube (#2) by removing cap, inverting it, and piercing the opening with the point on the other end of the cap. Add entire contents of #2 tube to the tray, and mix thoroughly with the spatula.

3.Application: apply to dry, untangled hair. Use pointed end of streaking brush to lift up and separate the strand of hair to be coloured. Keep strand up. Dip the brush end of the streaking brush into mixture and pick up a generous amount of product. To apply, roll streaking brush through strand all along its length without leaving excess product at the root. Thoroughly saturate from root to tip. (Use enough product that it's visible on the strand of hair) Lay the coloured strand back on your hair, it won't "spread".

4. Timing: Leave on hair for 30 minutes from the time you finished applying.

5. Rinse & Condition: Keep gloves on, rinse off the mixture until the water runs clear. Apply Conditioning Shampoo. Lather & rinse. Then do the same with the After-Colour Rinse.

Tip: You can't store the product after it's been mixed, but I often mix up a little at a time, using the proportions given in the allergy test instructions. In this case, it says to mix one part of the Colour Streaking Creme with 1.5 parts of the Creme Developer. Make sure to use a plastic measuring spoon and bowl (or glass), not metal.

Sorry if this is kinda wordy, but again, I really hope it helps!

Color oxidizes rather quickly... after mixing it, it is only going to work properly for the allotted time the package tells you... usually around half an hour.  So in other words, no, color cannot be saved and stored at all after it's been mixed.  (I'm a color specialist Smiley )
