Miss Clairol Hair Color Bath is the amazing product that lightens, colors, conditions and shampoos at the same time. It has made haircolor- ing so easy that any beautician can become a skilled colorist. In one simple operation Miss Clairol Hair Color Bath both tints and bleaches the hair so that the lighter, brighter tones may be obtained without pre-bleaching.
Miss Clairol has reduced tinting time, once one to two hours, to as little as five to forty-five minutes. It has made haircoloring less expensive and more easily available to the average customer. The haircolorist has been able to double and sometimes triple the daily output of work.
Miss Clairol does not require pre-bleaching or pre-softening. It covers gray hair completely while lightening, matching or darkening the natural color. Even pre-shampooing is eliminated with Miss Clairol. A complete coloring treatment can often be given in less than 30 minutes. Hair is left beautifully colored and frequently in better condition than it was originally.
MISS CLAIROL REGULAR AND CREME FORMULA
Miss Clairol Hair Color Bath comes in two types — Regular and Creme Formula. Both are exactly alike, except that Creme Formula becomes a creme when it is mixed with developer and stirred. Regular Miss Clairol Hair Color Bath remains a liquid. Both types give the same result and are applied in the same way. Use whichever you prefer. Creme Formula has the advantage of not dripping down the strand or on the face. It is easy to work with because it does not dry out, run or drip.

COLOR SELECTION WITH MISS CLAIROL
Proper color selection is most important in obtaining good results with Miss Clairol, as it is in all tint work.
When selecting a Miss Clairol color, take into account the fact that Miss Clairol lightens as well as colors. For this reason, you must con sider both the bleaching value and the coloring value of each color.
KEY TO MISS CLAIROL COLOR SELECTION :
- To match the natural shade of hair and to cover gray hair, if any
exists, select the color closest to the natural shade.
- To lighten or brighten the hair and cover gray hair, select a color
lighter than the natural shade, but one containing enough color to
produce the desired shade on gray hair. It is also important to
select the color having sufficient bleaching value.
- To darken the hair and cover gray, select a color darker than the
natural shade, with enough color to give the depth desired.
The shade produced on gray hair will be only as deep as the color used. Miss Clairol colors reach their depth and then stop. If hair has not been previously damaged, the color will not go darker if it is left on longer, as in the case of many shampoo tints. If, in the finished results, hair appears too light, color selection was incorrect and a deeper color must be used.
