Mixer Toner
A 'clear' shade that
looks lavender in the bottle this is great to take yellow tones out of bleached hair.You must already have your hair at 'inner lemon rind' yellow for this or any other semi-perm toner to be able to neutralize the yellow.

Your actual results on your hair will vary depending on what color you start out with.

Stuff you may want to know about dyeing your hair with Special Effects dye:
Semi-permanent hair dyes are like cellophane - and the lighter your starting hair color the brighter the resulting color. So, picture putting easter basket cellophane over your hair in a color when you check the colors above. If you put blue on blonde hair, you'll get green. If you put green over brown hair you'll get 'ugh'.

Dyes stain, yay! because that's how they work to give you good color! So, wear gloves. Use vasoline or hand lotion and slather it on every bit of your skin that you don't want stained your hair color when you apply the dye.

Jerome Russell Ultimate blonding 40 volume high lift bleach kit

Jerome Russell Ultimate blonding 40 volume high lift bleach kit

This bleach kit comes with everything you need for highlighting/tipping/streaking, and comes with 2 applications of bleach. Contrary to what you'd expect from the name, you don't get blonde dye in this kit - just bleach =)

If you have currently processed or damaged hair, proceed with caution when bleaching. Really! I've overbleached my own hair before, and while it was a long time ago, it was VERY memorable.

Jerome Russell Ultimate 'Blonding' (whatever!) kit - Salon Quality 40 volume bleach kit (box includes highlight cap, development cap, metal hook, 40 vol peroxide (x2), powder bleach (x2), tinting brush and really cheesy disposable plastic gloves)- $12.00

Special Effects Hair Dye application helpers (tint brushes, applicator bottles, caps and nitrile gloves!)

Tint brush. Reusable, available in black, black or, new and improved!, black. The width of the bristles is 2 inches

$1.00 each
Small Tint brush - really nice for doing streaks (or maybe you just want a smaller brush!). The width of the bristles is 1.5 inches

$1.00 each
3-in-one tint brush. Part with the long tail, comb where you're going to apply, apply color with the brush, and repeat! For the perfectionist!

$1.00 each
4oz easy squeezy applicator bottle - for applying your own custom blends!

Pitch your wussy short gloves, because how many times have they let you down when you inevitably stain right *below* where they end? These gloves come down around 4-5 inches past your wrist. Nitrile. Powder free! They're considered disposables, but they would be reusable, if you avoid poking holes in them.

$1.30 per pair
Clear elastic'd processing cap to use for your semi-perm dye. Keep the dye on your head and not all over your chair. Pretty bloooo hair not included!

$0.50 each
Highlighting/Frosting cap You put the cap on, and you poke holes in it. You pull the strands of hairs through and... Bleach them! Dye them! This makes highlighting hair without getting it all over your non-highlighty hair a *lot* easier! If you can keep stuff fairly tidy, you can reuse these =)

$1.70 each.
Crochet hook / Highlighting hook / Frosting hook Hair people have a lot of different names for things. This is a hook thingie that will be very handy for spearing and pulling through exactly the strands of hair you want to bleach / frost / highlight / dye. Very reusable!

$1.70 each.
