Q: What is the difference between Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener and Ultra Bond powder lightener?
A: Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener has the capability to lighten hair while simultaneously toning the hair.
Q: Can Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener be applied on hair colored with permanent hair color?
A: Yes, Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener can lighten and tone previously colored hair. However, do keep in mind the shade of the previously colored hair and the porosity of the hair will determine the amount of lift & tone you will achieve. We recommend strand testing to determine end color results.
Q: Can Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener be applied to the scalp?
A: Yes, ONLY when mixed with 20 volume Ultra Bond developer. Do not apply lightener mixed with 30-volume or 40-volume developer on the scalp.
Q: Will Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener lighten vivid hair color?
A: Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener can lighten vivid hair color. However, the lightening & toning results when lightening vivid hair color can be unpredictable. We recommend strand testing to determine end color results.

A: No. Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener is designed to be painted directly onto hair without transferring onto the surrounding hair for specialty techniques such as bailage and ombres.
Q: Is the Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener thick, chunky consistency because of the clay?
A: No. Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener is a powder that becomes a smooth creamy consistency when mixed with a developer.

A: No. We do not recommend mixing Ultra Bond Charcoal Clay Lightener with other lighteners, please follow the manufacturer's directions.
