BLEACHING/DYING INSTRUCTIONS. Intensity of resulting dyed color depends on original hair color.
If dark, bleaching first is recommended for maximum effect (dye will wash out almost immediately otherwise or not be visible).
All semi-permanent dyes last 3-8 weeks depending on several factors; how often hair is washed, dryness of hair type,
if it is bleached prior to dying, and if other dyes are already present.
Gels last longest, particularly Special Effects. We cannot guarantee color results or length of time color will remain.
Note: None of our dyes were tested on animals. Punky/Jerome Russell and Manic Panic dyes are vegetable dyes, but Special Effects is not.
Toners: Toners should be used after bleaching hair if result is brassy yellow instead of the desired white.
They can also be used as mixers, producing a lighter shade.
Blend cream toners with cream hair dye, and gel toner with gel hair dye.
BLEACHING: Choose 30 volume for light, thin hair and 40 volume for thick, dark hair. Wear gloves.
Do not wear clothing that you do not want bleached.
Mix a small portion of peroxide in a non-metallic bowl. Add an equal amount of bleach. Mix, then let stand briefly.
If it is your first time bleaching, do a strand test to get an idea of the results and how long to leave in bleach.
(usually 20 to 40 minutes..Lighter hair requires less time. Dark hair can take close to an hour, particularly if thick).
For streaking, you may wish to use a plastic cap, pulling hair through holes and applying bleach evenly with a tint brush to hair you want bleached (both avail. in Jerome Russell's or Manic's bleach kits)..
After applying product, cover head with cap (or use a hair dryer) to accelerate the process. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Once finished bleaching if the result is too orangey use toner or a second application of bleach (we recommend waiting a day in between).
Be careful not to leave bleach on too long or hair will become stretchy and break off!
You could use 40 volume to lift such an extremely dark color, and leave it on as long as you can without damgaging, but with black dye (especially if permanent) we recomend letting it grow out rather than bleaching it because its very, very hard to get out black dye comepletely.
If you do decide to try anyway, you'll probably have to bleach it more than once to get it nearly white.
Note: repeated bleaching will severely damage your hair, so you have to watch the bleaching progress carefully, testing small areas or you could have some hair fall out, or at least get so stretchy and thin that a comb-thru will result in hair coming out.
You'll probably have sections of your hair where the bleach won't lift the black evenly or barely at all.
Once (or if) you get the black sufficiently out and if the hair does not lose the orangey tone then you will need to use toner on it.
Toner has a conditioning effect and does not further damage the hair.
After you've succeeded in getting it lightened enought then you can apply the dye.
Most people spend a day just getting this far and dye it the next day.

DYING (after bleaching): Wear gloves and cover your hairline with vaseline to avoid staining of skin (ears in particular).
Do not wear clothing that you do not wish to have stained.
Apply dye to areas you want colored. Leave on for 20 to 40 minutes. Rinse with cool water until no dye is visible in rise water.
To maintain color, use Punky Color Lock shampoo, or put a small amount (a capful) of dye in each subsequent application of conditioner or shampoo to keep the color bright and long-lasting.
