Christiano Lanza’s hair colouring video tutorial demonstrates a virgin tint application on type 4 African hair. This tutorial features pointers on a post pigment treatment, porosity, an even blend from the short to longer lengths and suitable colour palette. 

The final result is a fiery, vermilion tinge with a flawless fade, setting the conical contours of Tim Hartley’s haircut ablaze.
