Lightener Consistency #1: Whipped Frosting

  • Mixing ratio: 1 part lightener to 1.5 parts developer
  • Great for:
    • Superior precision
    • Clients with thicker, textured hair

 

Balayage Babe and BTC Team Member Farhana Premji (@xo.farhana.balayage) uses this mixing ratio for her hair painting services. “It’s my go-to consistency for clay lightener,” she explains, “it’s thick enough so it doesn’t drip but thin enough so it glides on the hair when I am painting.”

 

Farhana used the New BLONDME® Clay Lightener onstage at The BTC Show in D.C. to create this gorgeous look.

 

Lightener Consistency #2: Sour Cream

  • Mixing Ratio: 1 part lightener to 2 parts developer
  • Great For:
    • A quick coverage service.
    • Client’s that have fine or thinning hair.

 

 

Blonding Expert and BTC Team Member Jen Maxcy (@hairandbeautybyjen) uses the “sour cream” consistency because it’s smooth and even for open-air painting. For this look, Jen placed small weaves in foils using the BLONDME® Premium Lightener 9+ from the bottom of her crown to her hairline and balayaged the remaining hair with the new BLONDME® Clay Lightener. “I love the consistency of the BLONDME® Clay Lightener more than any other I’ve tried,” she exclaimed. “I get the cleanest balayage highlights!”
