NEW Hair Lightening Kit

KIT |  Item SBS-003474

What is it?

Lightening Kit is what you need to lighten the hair and open the cuticle, to properly receive our ultra vibrant Semi-Permanent pigments. Our Lightening Kit uses a 25 Volume Creme Developer, gentle enough for light brown hair but powerful enough to lighten darker hair as well. The Dust-Free Powder Lightener contains naturally-derived actives to help condition and protect the hair while lightening it, to minimize damage from the lightening process. Formula is Vegan and Cruelty Free.

"Hair is one of the coolest and easiest tools that we have for self-expression. It's your own personal megaphone…and it's attached to your head!' -Hayley Williams, Founder of Good Dye Young & Lead Singer of Paramore.

Good Dye Young supports artistry, creativity and self-expression. We believe happiness and confidence is the most beautiful you. We want to see you be #beautifullyobnoxious and rock it.

What makes it special?
  • Dust-free Powder Lightener contains Cococut Oil and Soy Protein to add condition and strength to the hair during the lightening process
  • New and improved formulation is Vegan and Cruelty Free
  • Larger size of 4oz. for more coverage

POWDER LIGHTENER: Potassium Persulfate, Ammonium Persulfate, Sodium Metasilicate, Sodium Stearate, Silica, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, EDTA, Hydrated Silica, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein CREME

DEVELOPER: Water/Eau/Aqua, Hydrogen Peroxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Trideceth-2 Carboxamide MEA, Sodium Stannate, Phosphoric Acid


1. Hair should be dry and it’s best if hair is unwashed.

2. Section your hair and apply the lightening mixture with a gloved hand or brush. (TIPS: saturate the hair and cover it when you finish, to keep the Lightener from drying out. When it dries, it stops working. Protect your skin from irritation by applying shea butter, coconut oil or thick hair conditioner to your hairline and over the ears.)

3. Let your hair process for no more than 50 minutes, until you achieve the desired tone. Check consistently (every 5-10 minutes) to evaluate the color lift.

4. After you achieve the desired result, rinse and shampoo your hair thoroughly with warm water until you are sure all of the product is removed. Do NOT condition the hair, as your SemiPermanent Dye will act like your conditioner when you apply.

5. Wait at least 24 hours before any further lightening.

6. Before coloring with GDY Semi-Permanent Dye, make sure hair is totally dry. When it is, you’re ready for color!

To ensure even lift, each hair strand needs to be generously covered in lightener. Saturation is key!

The amount of Lightening Kits you will need depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Pixie cuts and mens cuts typically only need 1 box, shoulder length hair typically needs 2-3, medium length hair 3-5, and long hair can be 5+. Remember, it is always better to have more product than not enough!

When lightening hair, save about an inch of your roots for last. The heat from your scalp causes lightener to work faster and will lift your roots quicker than the rest of your hair. This will ensure even lift.

Lightener can dry out, so after it is applied put a processing cap or foil over the hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge waste It didn't even lighten my hair at all. The onky thing in its favor is it doesn't smell harsh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall an ok product pretty good quality. didn't fry my hair, left a yellowing but that could be many things.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay for the price Worked well enough to lift 2 levels but not enough if hair is longer than a shaggy pixie or longer
Date published: 2020-11-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Could be Great Amazing lift, from hair level 3 to hair level 8 in one session. When the powder and the developer are combined, it turns into a thick paste (like tooth paste), which is different from other products I’ve tried. The instructions are very easy, but they are printed on the box in small font. The only other complaint is that there is not enough bleach in one box! In one box, I was only able to bleach half of my hair (thick, chest-length hair).

I have medium long hair and it's not very thick. I am planning to dye the underside of my hair as well as my bangs, will I need more than one box?

Asked by: HRose200
More than likely. I had very short hair (longer than a pixie but shorter than a bob) when I used this bleach and one box barely covered my head.

I bleached my hair previously and died it pink, the pink is gone now but now my hair is kind of orangeish could I still use this product

Asked by: 45566554998
Better off using a bleach with a blue tint to it. I recommend Kaleidocolors in Blue. Don’t leave it on too long tho as it might tint it a bit blue. Using a blue shampoo works too depending on how orange it is. Blue shampoo is also far less damaging.

I have long hair so I’m not sure if this product is mixed with a solution to make more than just 4oz. Or is this just 4 oz and I need to buy like 3? Has anyone tried it ? What was your result in one try ?

Asked by: Obispo05
This product is just 4oz, it comes with a developer and powder you mix together. if you have long hair I would be on the safer side and buy at least 2 boxes. I have long, thick hair and I needed 2 boxes for my entire hair, and just 1 box for my roots when they grow out. As far as results, it is great! And it doesn't smell like other lighteners I've used in the past. If you plan on using it for dyeing your hair a different color, then you won't have to treat it again, but if you do want it to get blonde, you might have to wait a few weeks and try again to get the level you need, depending on how dark your natural hair is, plus I would buy a toner that matches the level you are wanting. I personally like WellaB lines of toners. Hope this helps answer your question.

What can I use so I won’t burn my hair before I use this product

Asked by: Anonymous
If you want to protect your skin around your hair, use vaseline. The product does not burn your skin.

My hair is a dark brown it’s been dyed before and I want it light brown or blonde will this work 

Asked by: Lea Dimeo
It is a bleach. It bleached my hair. It did the job, then I was able to buy a blonde dye and color my hair again. My hair is pretty fried though.

I have some highlights sandy blond that are grown out and gray at roots. I also have a perm , will this make my hair fall out ,?

Asked by: Ayanaanon
After a perm it's best not to use lightener on it because perm solution makes your hair really fragile. this lightening kit is relatively gentle but I wouldn't recommend it due to the perm.

Is this safe to use on facial hair? If my hair is dark brown/black, will I need multiple applications to bleach, or should I use a 30 or 40 volume developer? I want to add more silver/gray color . . .

Asked by: 1Thrlskr
This has gentler ingredients than other bleaches but if you have sensitive skin I wouldn't try it. This kit comes with pre-measured packets of bleach and developer so it's a one-time-use thing, if you do decide to go in for a second lightning you'd need another lightning kit. But you'll need to get a toner to help even out the color after you bleach it, I used the color charm wella one and for that you'll need a 20 volume developer. Hope this helps :)
