DESERT HARVEST INGREDIENTS**
Sustainably harvested and extracted from the Australian desert, our Desert Harvest Blend is a hero complex of exotic fruits and seeds that bring radiant health benefits to the hair and scalp.
Desert Peach / Quandong Fruit** is a unique superfood due to it's ability to flourish in dry conditions. Learning from mother nature, we've harnessed the moisture retention powers of this desert fruit to keep the hair healthy and hydrated during the color process. Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C & E, and phenolic acids, these properties condition and protect the hair and scalp from oxidative stress.
Desert Lime** is rich in methoxy flavone ghycosides – limnocitrin. Glycosides are skin healers, making them natural repairers of the scalp. It also helps in absorption of vital nutrients needed for healthy hair.
Wattle Seed** is a native Australian plant-based protein aids in cell regeneration and synthesis of keratin during the color process. Rich in Folate, B12, Zinc, Magnesium to prevent damage of the hair, skin and scalp.
Signature Oil Blend is a nourishing super duo of native Australian-certified Organic Macadamia Oil and Organic Coconut Oil. Together, they enhance hair color vibrancy and longevity, calms frizzy/unruly hair and promotes healthy hair growth by conditioning the scalp.
O&M CØR.color has various usages for creating the ultimate color result. Because CØR.color is free from Ammonia, it can be used as a hybrid range offering for both permanent and semi-permanent color results.
The long lasting result comes down to CØR.color keeping the hair hydrated and in better condition throughout the color process by using Organic Macadamia and Coconut oil, while our Molecular Blend Technology helps to ensure long lasting color results.

In order to achieve maximum grey coverage, a base shade (Natural .0 Series) may be required. The table below gives recommendations of the quantity of "base" needed for optimum results. The recommended Activator for grey coverage is 20vol at a 1:1.5 ratio (color to developer).
For Grey Coverage:
USE TARGET SHADE
USE 25% BASE* & 75% TARGET SHADE
USE 50% BASE* & 50% TARGET SHADE
• Desired Shade: 6.13
• Grey: 75%
• Mix: 5.0 (1/2) + 6.13 (1/2) with 20vol Activator in a 1:1.5 ratio

For Resistant Grey Hair, we do not recommend decreasing the amount of Activator. Instead, we suggest dropping your base shade (.0 Natura) 1/2 to 1 level darker than desired result.
