Charcolite Lightening Paste is a 9 level lift lightener designed to neutralize yellow and brassy tones while lifting.
* Activated Charcoal purifies the hair from buildup to achieve a brighter blonde result.
* Crystalline Graphite Pigments have a natural "blue/silver" base to provide total warmth control.
No. Our Lightening Paste is formulated with *Inulin BondPlex, a blend of vegan oils and proteins designed to encapsulate moisture and protect the disulfide bonds during lightening. Adding any additional bond builder will dilute or diminish it’s lifting capabilities.
Every application is unique, and timing will vary based on each individual’s texture, chemical history, desired result. A good rule of thumb is to check at the 45 minute mark, it can take up 60 minutes to achieve palest blonde and, in some cases, a second application may be required. For Platinum results, hair should be lifted to beyond yellow, almost white.
Yes. Typically, heat is not necessary for on scalp applications as they are subject to "radiant heat" produced by body temperatures, however, when applying heat to mid lengths and ends (as in a free hand technique or highlight) we recommend using a "processor" or heat lamp and temperatures should not exceed 95-105 degrees Fahrenheit. Best practice is to process at room temperature for the first 45 minutes, check, if additional lift is needed, applying heat at this stage will help deliver the desired result by giving it that extra lift.
