Good for on-scalp application- bleached and buzzed I am bleached and buzzed- so I would assume my hair is a good deal shorter than most of the people who are complaining about breakage. Although I can't attest to that, I can tell you that the pepper part of my naturally salt and pepper hair is very dark- we are talking one espresso shade away from black- and I come from a family of redheads so as dark as it was, I always had copper highlights and a tendency to go red when coloring. I can get three applications out of the box kit because my hair is so short, so even if the bulk containers aren't available, the small kit will not break the bank for me. I learned how to use this product through a little trial and error at first. What my experience taught me was this: 1.Pretreat with coconut oil- it will not impede the process. This is oil-activated, so it actually helps the activation as it also protects your scalp and hair. 2. For higher lift- Use all 3 of the powdered lightener packets if you are treating the box as one application. 3. Use 20 volume developer. You can achieve optimum high-lift results with 20 volume developer. I tried 30 volume after the first application didn't quite achieve what I wanted and my hair - which is dense but fine textured- felt very brittle until it grew out. The 20 works. You just have to leave it on your head for a long time. 4. Let it develop for at least 45 minutes - it will deactivate in an hour anyway. If you are using no stronger than 20 developer, the longer time isn't what damages your hair- letting it dry out is probably the real culprit. I give it a full 55 minutes . 5. Cover with plastic during processing. They say it won't dry out but his insures it- especially if you are leaving it on for longer than they suggest. 6. Rinse with apple cider vinegar after you wash it out- this will shift the PH, stop the chemical process and help restore your hair to its natural state. 7. More coconut oil - leave it in to further condition. I hope this helps! I am not a salon professional. September 17, 2014
Lightened a little I used this product after using L'oreal's Color Zap, so that may have had something to do with my outcome. This product was not able to be mixed in the application bottle, it stayed separated and in powder form. I had to mix it in a hair dye mixing bowl (which luckily I had on hand), but the consistency remained like water, and had random chunks that wouldn't dissolve. I had used 2 packets, since I was worried about the strength of the chemicals for 3. Be warned, this drips A LOT. It didn't at all apply evenly, so my hair now has a marbled look to it, and it did nothing for my dyed black ends (since the Color Zap didn't last for my whole head, I had an ombre look). All this really did was dry my hair out more, and make my strands look synthetic for some reason. I didn't really have any sort of pros, except that it lightened some parts maybe a shade or so. I wouldn't recommend this, at the very least, I wouldn't recommend this after using Color Zap. May 1, 2014
This bleach is trash. Don't even bother... Okay so... I've given this stuff more than its fair share of chances. I just finished trying it for the second time. It hardly lifts my hair a level.. and it is in no way dark. It is currently medium golden mahogany blonde from Ion Color Brilliance. I wanted to add some blonde streaks to my hair, and instead of making another trip to Sally I figured I'd use up the rest of this. Bad choice on my part... Now I have to go back and correct my hair by recoloring where I'd bleached with 7WR, let it rest, and try again at a later date with a product that actually does what it claims to do as opposed to hardly lifting and yet damaging my hair. Fun! Of course I followed all directions, using everything as explained in the directions. I am not a dolt. Perhaps this works on virgin hair, but NOT on hair that has been coloured... oh and the drabber it claims to have? Yeah, you might want to get some toner if this even manages to lift for you!

Not at all what I expected I got this product on the recommendation of the employee that helped me. She said it would work well on my hair since It was darker and there was red in it. WRONG! I had a patch on top that was platinum and the rest was a bright red blond. Glad it was not the final color I was going with. It also damaged my hair really bad, to the point that it basically stayed straight and in one place with no product in, and I have really curly hair. My scalp is now sore and very tight feeling. In all the years I have been dying my hair I have never had this happen. I will never use this product again. Guess I should have just gone with what I usually get when I do highlights, nut that won't be for a while because I have to try to repair the damage this product caused. If I could do 0 stars I would. June 25, 2013
