  1. Pop off the end of the marker

    Pop off the end of the marker. It can be difficult to remove, so have some pliers or a butter knife available to help the process.

  2. Remove the color tube

    Turn the marker over so that the color tube falls out. The color tube is dye-soaked felt wrapped in a thin plastic casing.

  3. Cut open the color tube

    Carefully snip the plastic casing vertically down the length of the tube. Avoid cutting through the felt.

  4. Remove the felt

    Remove the felt from the plastic casing.

  5. Add water to the felt

    Add a few drops of water to the felt to activate the dye. Do not add too much water, as this can create a mess.

  6. Rub the wet felt onto the hair

    Rub the wet felt on the parts of the hair that need coloring.

  7. Repeat the process

    Repeat the process as needed once the color fades. Depending on hair type and color, the color lasts up to two months.
