Rated 5 out of 5 by DappledSunshine Best Bleach I've ever used!
I love this bleach! It creates the most beautiful shimmery blonde I've ever had. For my hair (dirty blond or light mousy brown depending on your color perception lol) it's wonderful. I actually only need to use 10 developer with it so it's not overly harsh on my hair. I put it on and leave it for about 40 to 50 minutes and just tie a grocery bag (ink side OUT lol) around my hair. I actually end up with this really pretty angelic blonde color - I just love it so much. Once I went to a Viking festival one day after I'd just refreshed my roots, and even with no toner whatsoever, all the true Scandinavians there had no idea I bleached my hair - one lady even said to me, "Well don't tell anyone else, and they'll never know!" That was so awesome.
I find that for me, the blue based bleach works much better with my base color and I rarely even need a toner with this bleach, unless I just feel like having a slightly different shade for a while. I've used both the violet and blue tones of this brand and they both work wonderfully and give the best bleach colors I've ever experienced. The violet I find though leaves my hair a little more brassy than the blue for some odd reason and I need a toner more often, but it also is still a much better bleach than many others I've tried!
This brand leaves my hair WAY more shimmery and with more dimension than other bleaches, most of which have left my hair very "flat" looking. I definitely see the reason for the name "Prism Lites" it really is fantastic.
If you have darker hair than light mousy brown or dirty blond naturally, definitely use a higher developer than 10, but for light brown to naturally blonde shades, 10 should be just fine - just make sure you leave it on for at least 40 minutes, a little more if needed. You can always use a higher developer if you want to speed up the process, but note that higher developer has more peroxide and therefore more oxidation potential, so your chances of going brassy are higher; it's always best to use the lowest developer that will get the job done on your base color. All bleach is going to damage hair, but this way the damage is as minor as possible and still leaves my hair nice and silky and healthy looking. People are always wondering how I manage that with all that I do to my hair LOL. This would be how I manage that - this brand and 10 developer. :D
Also, the powder mixes beautifully with little to no clumping and becomes a very consistent paste that's very easy to work with. I've had some bleaches that are clumpy no matter how much you stir it so that's important for me, as a good consistency is key to coat your hair evenly and avoid patchy spots.
Also, it smells really nice too. I've gone through about 4 tubs of these over the last few years now. Brillant stuff; it's really hard to go wrong with this one.
