Basic White Lightener is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bleach I usually use 40 developer & leave it on my dyed light brown hair for 15 minutes or 30 minutes to and hour for highlights, depending if I want gold highlights or light blonde highlights. I watch it and I have very strong hair so I can take the 40. This is the bleach that works best for me & I've tried many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bleach!! I used this to do foil highlights and I love it! I am a beginner at coloring hair and it turned out great, I will definitely buy this again. I used a 30 volume developer with it, make sure you wait until the hair looks a very pale yellow, if not you will rinse too early and it will be an orangey color. I also used a toning shampoo ( Ion Shimmer Lights)to get that little bit of brassiness out and it worked great!! Also when mixing with developer thicker is better for control and processing time. Hope this helps anyone looking to DIY :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Love this. I normally use BW2 but this one was on sale so i got it. I used it with my salon care 30 vol developer and it lifted my hair nice. I only went from a black to a golden blond color in about 15-18 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome results I had bought this because i wanted to change my brunette hair to blonde and this was the cheapest thing i could find. When i first used this my hair turned a gross orangey yellow, but then i did it over a couple days later and my hair was super light and blonde. overall on dark hair this works really well and i would deff. recommend to a friend or to any buddy else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Out of all the hair salons Ive been to, this product did the best job! I have the lightest, non-yellowy hair Ive ever had. I was so scared that Id end up with macaroni hair color, but I DIDNT!! It worked great on my hair extensions as well :) I used a 40 developer as my hair is naturally a light brown. I havent used the shimmer lights shampoo, which is supposed to make hair even whiter blonde...I will try it soon and report back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Frosting Bleach! I use this with 40% developer and I get a nice beige blond frosting in an hour. Great Price. Just sorry I missed this $8.99 price which is really incredible. You get enough to last for several frosting's for yourself and your friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on Dark hair My hair has black dye on it and it worked fine...You will need to use it more than once ,if you are trying to bleach through dark/dyed hair. I used a 40 developer.

What ratio of powder to developer? Also can color corrector be added as well?

1. What is the ratio of powder to cream developer? 2. Can Color Corrector be added to mixture? 3. How long to leave in/on roots for light brown hair?
