Put a few drops of water into the powder. I put a little too much. I think it's a little easier to have it a little more runnier rather than a paste.

Then rinse out your hair until you see no more due washing out. It will be a lot of dye coming out, but don't worry that's normal. After you washed it out, put conditioner on and rinse again
