1. Put on enclosed gloves.
2. Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of the Peroxide in a plastic bowl (not provided), do not use metal bowl, then carefully open bleach packet and pour approx. 1/2 of bleach into bowl. Use the tint brush to mix until smooth and creamy. Now add the remainder of the Peroxide and Bleach powder and mix until smooth and creamy.
3. Apply mixture immediately.
1. Hair should be dry and unwashed. Wear towel or cape to protect clothing during application.
2. Using the brush, apply bleach mixture evenly to the hair you want to be bleached. Make sure all hair strands are evenly saturated, but not dripping, using brush or gloved fingers. You may mask hair you don't want to be bleached by using a highlight cap or foil.
3. Once mixture has been completely applied to hair, begin timing development. Check development of hair every 10 minutes to evaluate lift (color). To do this, take a few strands of hair and wipe away bleach with a damp paper towel, spread apart strands of hair, if desired shade has not been reached, reapply bleach mixture to that area and continue processing. During Lightening, hair goes through various stages until reaching desired lightness. Lightening time varies depending on natural hair color. The darker the hair, the longer the lightening time. The chart below shows the approximate time for various hair colors to achieve pale yellow. The bleach will continue to lighten hair for up to 2 hours if hair is resistant. Do not over bleach.
Once desired shade has been reached, rinse bleach out of hair, shampoo thoroughly and condition. Natural Hair Color Approximate Timing.
1. Dark Blond 15 to 30 Minutes
2. Light Brown 25 to 35 Minutes
3. Medium Brown 30 to 45 Minutes
4. Dark Brown 45 to 60 Minutes
Getting Dye off your hands and skin:
Use rubbing alcohol on a cottoball or disposable cloth. You then want to use soap and water (liquid soap
or hand soap works better than bar soap.
Getting HairDye to last as long as possible:
Bleach hair first before applying hair dye. (Note: this can make the color last longer than 8 weeks
allowing color to penetrate deeper into hair. Color might leave a slight stain once it wears out.)
Make sure hair is completely dry.
Use a high PH Shampoo (cheaper shampoo tend to work better because they strip hair, giving better
preparation for dying.)
Do not use conditioner before dying. Including shampoo and conditioner in one.
