Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Will lift to level 7 blonde from dark colors. I used an ash toner to tone out the subtle orange tinge from bleaching.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Bought this bleach because I did not have time to drive to my normal professional hair store. What a mistake! The worst bleach I’ve ever used. It lifted ok but it left the hair with a Sticky film on it and a tangled mess. It took so long to blow dry and extended my two clients appointments by an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will purchase again Can’t speak to full bleach process, but I do bleach bath/soap caps about once a month and this stuff does in ten minutes what other brands have done in 30. I’m into it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powder bleach Best bleach powder I've tried so far, followed the instructions but I only did half of the measurings because I wasn't working with a lot of hair. Best even bleaching I've had and it lightened exactly how I wanted. I used 30 volume and 20 at separate times and it hasn't failed me yet.

which product is stronger? and what is the difference of the 2, BASIC WHITE and BW 2? i use this for bone whitening when I finish european skulls. when there is reminent grease in the skull bone, the bone color is dingy yellow rather than preferred white

Asked by: skullers
I have always used BW 2.  I thought it was stronger.

I need clairol bleach powder, is this the right product? I also need to use six scoops, does the product come with a scoop? Otherwise what's the size of a scoop and which size should I get? It's my first time doing a balayage.

Asked by: Maia1111
Yes it comes with a scoop. You will also need pure white cream developer to mix it.

I used to use an over the counter highlighter to do my own hair--Loreal Highlighting Iced Champagne H90. A prof. hair dresser recommended this powder with a 30 volume creme developer. The directions for this powder say vol 10 or 20. Will 30 be ok?

Asked by: cder2121
Yes ...I personally use only 40 vl w all my hi lights...cap or foils.  If ur hair is dark use 40 to speed up process

I use box color dye dark mahogany brown, my hair is gray, I would like to highlight my hair, what developer do you recommend? I have heard my hair will turn orange if I highlight it and that’s not what I want. Thanks!

Asked by: Betzy1972
In my many years experience bleaching and coloring my hair, all developer brands are pretty much equal. the strength, on the other hand, makes a massive difference: the # of the developer refers to how many shades it is capable of lifting--20 (2 shades) will be relatively gentle on your hair but can't lighten greatly without repeated applications or long processing time, whereas 50 (5 shades) will cause considerably more damage in a shorter time but works fast so requires much shorter/less processing. (10 is for color depositing dye, not for bleaching.) so it depends a lot on how light you want to go. *orange* isn't exactly what you'd see, but a very strawberry-blonde brassiness could result regardless of strength, if it isn't processed enough. if you're concerned about damage to already-dyed hair, use a low strength developer and consider the possible need to do multiple applications to get the results you want (this could have the side benefit of 'softening' the look to a more natural, blended contrast with the underlying darker hair); if you'd rather ensure the most lift possible at a go, for strikingly contrasted highlights, grab a 40 and know you'll need to work more quickly and/or don't play with adding any heat/foil (instead wrap with cling film to use head heat, and check frequently for desired lift to avoid overshooting one side while still applying to the other). level 30 is definitely my go-to for a comfortable balance of effectiveness and processing length, but even that strength has gotten away from me at times, so if you're not very familiar with the bleaching process I'd suggest you play it on the safe side and try a 20.

How full will the tub be? Scared to order a 8oz tub with only 5 oz of bleach in it

Asked by: Tinaalei
I have been ordering for years.  It’s in a plastic bag inside the tub last me about a year, So I think it a little more than 8oz.

Could you use "BW2 Powder Lightener" with foils? Or will it make the product too strong and completely damage your hair?

Asked by: gr8itsjonate
Yes.I use 20vol. developer if it's going to take awhile to apply entirely to avoid some parts developing quicker than others.It buys you some time.If I'm doing a job where I can get it applied more quickly I use 30vol. so it'll process quicker.NEVER use 40vol. developer w bleach! I recommend using 20vol. apply onto foils starting at back to front and top of head last.If the hair ends are damaged only apply from head,down the section and. stop right above the damaged ends.Don't apply to them yet.Processing is around 4o-45min. to get to pale blonde.Always peek under a few foils to monitor progress.Once you're about 15-20min away from taking them out,apply bleach to damaged ends you left undone earlier and close foil leave on for 10-15 min.This is ONLY an example of how I do my foils w bleach&bw2. If you're not real confident in your bleach w foils i suggest watching a few you tube videos showing application techniques.Its important to know what your doing when applying bleach or it can be disastrous if left on too long(hair breakage,falling out,burnt scalp) & if not long enough youll end up w a funky orange copper color.I watch youtube all the time for new ideas n tips-even if I know how i watch to refresh and see if there's something new out there.You likely were looking for a simple yes or no answer but I'm a caretaker so I have to be sure you'll be ok & prob. know what youre doing to begin with! =》 Good luck!
