The next weekend all roots were covered with Joico Creme Lightener mixed with volume 20. However, for the developer, I used Wella. (I find Joico's developers too runny.) The bleach stayed on my roots for nearly an hour. 35 minutes into the process, I did put a plastic cap over my scalp. This was the only heat source. And with all of the on scalp bleaches I've tried, I let the mixture sit on my scalp for 45-60 minutes. Because of all of the oils in this bleach it did not dry out on my scalp meaning it kept developing for nearly the whole hour. Some commenters online find the Joico bleach hard to rinse out. I didn't find this to be the case. The lift was incredible!!! A very crystal clean, clear lift with absolutely NO orange or yellow. And best of all there was no breakage and my hair was left in perfect condition.
Any one tried going from dark brown (almost black) to blonde with joico creme bleach and 10 volume? I saw a video on YouTube, and it turned out great. Any developer that holds bleach will lift to the same color, but it's just a question of time. Low volume can reach the same color as a high volume but much gentler and slower. You can have the bleach in your hair for even up to 5 hours! Slow roasting is the best method.
