Jazzing is a hair product that adds shine and conditioning to colored, permed or dry hair. If heated it will also add bright color and lighten. Made by Clarins, it is an inexpensive way to treat and color your hair. Jazzing does not contain ammonia or peroxide.

Choose a color from the Jazzing range that is lighter than your own. For example if your hair is brown, choose "Creme Soda" or "Bold Gold."

Cover the shoulders with cape and put on plastic gloves. Apply the color to dry hair either all over or just as highlights. Lift strands of hair evenly around the head and apply the color using sectioning clips. Blow dry until it becomes "flaky" then shampoo out and condition hair. This will make the color semi-permanent.

Lighten your hair even more by using Clairols pre-lightener and Jazzing. Mix the BW2 powder lightener with white creme developer to a consistency that does not drip. Coat the hair with liquid brushing in carefully. Shampoo and dry hair. Then for highlights and depth add Spiced Cognac Jazzing to strands of hair using sectioning clips to separate hair. Add Creme Soda Jazzing to the rest of the hair. Dry immediately for a semi-permanent effect. Shampoo and condition.
