Ultra Blond Highlighting Kit
New from Color by Robert Craig,
Ultra Blond is an advanced highlighting kit containing everything you need to create customized highlights. You get off-scalp bleaching powder, mixing bowl, 30 volume peroxide, a professional applicator brush, a highlight cap and hook, and professional gloves. Ultra Blond is a non-drying formula for "off-the-scalp" blonding. Perfect for bleaching, highlighting, frosting and streaking. You control the effect, from subtle to dramatic. The bleaching powder in this kit is 'ultra-buffered' making it 'ultra-gentle' on the hair. Because of this, the result is superior to other highlighting products.
Note: Do not use this product directly on the scalp.
Please read and follow directions carefully prior to using

Preliminary Strand Test
Highlighting and bleaching results depend on the condition and color of the natural hair. A strand test is recommended to give you a better idea of the end results and to avoid any complications with the actual process. Wear the enclosed gloves and prepare the strand test mixture in the plastic bowl provided:
- Open the Ultra blond bleach powder bag and pour ½ teaspoon of powder with enough Ultra blond developer to make a creamy mixture.
- Your hair should be clean and dry. Comb firmly back and remove any tangles. Pull one strand of hair from behind your ear to perform the test.
- Generously apply mixture to the desired test strand, making sure the test strand does not touch the rest of your hair.
- Check test strand frequently (10-15 minutes). Refer to the instructions for required timing. To check results, wipe away mixture with a damp paper towel. If your hair looks red or gold, reapply mixture. When the strand is the same color as the desired shade, proceed with full application.
- Rinse off the test strand and towel dry hair.
- Discard any leftover mixture. Thoroughly rinse and dry the mixing bowl prior to actual application.
Lightening time depends on the natural hair color and the condition of the hair. The darker the hair, the longer time to process.
Natural Hair Color Timing
Light to dark blond hair 20-60 minutes
Light brown hair 20-90 minutes
Medium brown hair 40-90 minutes
Dark brown hair 60-90 minutes
Check product after minimum time by removing some product with a damp paper towel. Be sure to check progress every ten minutes thereafter to avoid over processing. Resistant hair can process for up to two hours.
Put on enclosed gloves.
Empty contents of bleach powder packet into mixing tub.
Gradually add developer to the bleach powder in the tub. Using the brush, blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Apply mixture immediately.
