1. Perform a skin allergy patch test 48 hours before each use of Totally Clean Bleach product.

2. Skip washing your hair two days prior to bleaching. This can help reduce the possibility of scalp irritation.

1. Add full contents of bleach tube to plastic or ceramic bowl. DO NOT use metal bowls or metal tools.

2. Mix in full contents of developer bottle. Stir until the mixture is a smooth consistency and there are no lumps.

*If you are only doing your roots and/or do not require as much product, mix one part bleach to 1.5 parts developer. Use a scale for accuracy. For example, 1oz of bleach would be mixed with 1.5oz of developer.

1. Wear included gloves and cover clothing. Start with dry, un-shampooed and detangled hair. Start at the crown of the head and work in small sections. Finish your roots last, as they tend to lift faster.

2. Using a hair applicator brush, fully saturate each section, working the bleach down the hair. Leave the roots for the last step, as they will lift quicker.

3. After all sections are fully saturated go back and apply bleach to your roots* and any missed spots.

*If you are only bleaching your roots, do not apply over previously bleached hair. Overlapping could cause excessive damage to hair.

4. Wait 35-45 min paying close attention to the condition of your hair while processing. Check every 10 min. To check the process, wipe excess product from a small of piece of hair using your gloved hand. If the hair is not lightened enough, leave mixture on longer. DO NOT leave on for more than 45 minutes!

5. Rinse hair thoroughly with lukewarm water, ensuring that all product is washed out.

6. Shampoo and deep condition using the included conditioner. Do not use conditioner on hair if you plan on coloring your hair immediately after lightening.
