Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lightener, but not as lifting. Its a good lightener if you're ok with only lifting like 2-3 levels. It made my hair a nice light brown at a level 7 the most. I got the best result by toning with a t11 and then i toned it again with a blue shampoo. After i gave myself a protein treatment with Aphogee, followed by Not your Mothers hair mask deep condition. My hair came out damage free.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs a toner. I'm a natural level 6 blonde. I was looking to balayage to a level 8 or 9. I tested a small amount of hair using a 20 developer for 45 min. My test hair turned light orange. So, either use a toner afterward or use Wella Blondor Blue or Kenra Blue powder that will tone at the same time.

Would this lighten my natural black hair enough so I can dye it to a medium brown?

Asked by: GladysGraceH
Im not a professional, I just happen to know this will only be enough to turn your hair orange. The medium brown may cover it, but I dont know.

I want to get ash brown balayage. I have dark brown hair . How can I get that color?

Asked by: Rodri214
You can use this lightener, but you will have to put a demi permanent color like Wella Color Charm 10NA over the newly highlighted areas, otherwise it will be orange. Then start using a purple masque weekly on your ends to help bring out that ashy color you are looking for.

I have not colored my hair in over 5 years. My natural hair color, dark brown, is now completely grown out. I love that my hair is soft and shiny but I'm getting bored with it. Is this product safe to use on basically virgin hair?

Asked by: katmoon24
I used this on my hair (that hasn't had any chemicals for over 6 years); I did notice some split ends after i used this but my hair is still soft and it lightened my hair to a natural lighter color, about 2 shades. Safe for virgin hair, but expect some damage.

I’m trying to achieve a look with brown auburn and blonde what would be the best dyes and would I need a lighter if I have dark hair 

Asked by: kaisenmom
You don't say how dark your natural hair is. If it's black or colored black you would definitely would need to bleach all of your hair. If it's brown, the places where you want to paint blonde will need to be bleached. The auburn will give you nice red tones over brown hair. With the lightening packet you will need to mix with a developer. 30 volume will lift about 2-4 shades. You may have to lighten it more than one time. I prefer the ION colors. They seem to be true to the color stated on the box. Note 1: Your hair needs to be in excellent condition to a complete this look. Use a good conditioner 2-3 times/week for a couple of weeks ahead. Note 2: This is a complex process and if you are not completely comfortable doing this at home, it might be best to go to a professional. Good luck!

I just had my hair highlighted adding some lowlights a few days ago using the lighteners made by Clairol. Can I safely use this over recently bleached highlights and low lights? Will this leave my Lvl 3/4 roots brassy like reg bleach?

Asked by: Kylie473
Omg your about to mess up your hair and have to go get it professionally redone or colored over with a darker al over color. Yes you can use it on highlighted(bleached) hair depending on how light it already is. If your hair is super light then you could cause irreversable damage. And on the low lights your not going to lighten it much because its freshly colored. You will end up pulling some of the color out but depending on how dark it is you could end up with a funky color. And your roots are at a level so dark that yes with only one bleaching it will turn brassy because you can not lift past the orange undertones in your hair with only one bleaching session, not matter how long you leave it on. You can however tone the color to cut brass out. Toner will be your best friend. And dont put it on hour roots or you will have hot roots. If you do use it on.roots use a demi level 9 ash to cut out brass. Demi will not cause hot roots. You have so many diffent elements to address on your hair that if you dont understand color you will cause a bigger problem. Go on youtube and watch ellebangs youtube tutorials on color theory before you do your hair. Watch understanding color levels and toning. You need to know underlying pigments and what level your hair needs to be.
