How to Use
Please always read the enclosed instruction leaflet thoroughly before use. Before applying your colour, cover your clothing with an old towel and put on the gloves supplied. Put a watch nearby so that you can monitor the development time. Apply LIVE Color XXL to dry, unwashed hair. Squeeze the contents of the color crème tube into the developer lotion bottle. Shake well until the color crème and developer lotion are thoroughly mixed. Whether it is a first time application or a root regrowth application, follow the instructions in the leaflet enclosed to ensure your desired colour result. Once the development time is completed, add lukewarm water to the hair and massage the hair into a lather. Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear and then massage the LIVE conditioner into the hair. Leave for 2 minutes and then rinse again. Your hair will be moisturised and will shine. Refer to the shade guide on the side of the pack to check which shades are suitable for your hair colour. If you have longer than shoulder length hair, we recommend using two packs.
My hair is naturally black, so obviously I wasn't expecting any shade of blonde, however within just fifteen minutes of it being in my hair, I could visibly see it lightening considerably. After the full development time, my black hair had gone quite a nice caramel, golden colour, which in itself was fine, but was a good base for the dye I was to use afterwards (as I wasn't going for blonde, but rather to bleach it). I did find that towards the ends of my hair were darker, so perhaps I didn't get the coverage or perhaps next time I'll start with the tips instead of the roots, however this is definitely now my hair lightener of choice whenever I want any colour hair. The smell isn't as bad as some say, instead I found there were odd moments where it was slightly overpowering, but nothing too bad. Remember this is a powerful dye, lightening by up to 8 shades, so it won't smell as nice as some colourants. My hair didn't feel too bad afterwards, either. I went straight on to use the next dye, then used the conditioner provided by this one. It's now the following morning and it doesn't feel at all like I've put it through all that! Recommended.

I used to use Live Colour XXL Absolute Platinum, which was great but left my naturally medium brown hair a bit brassy. Then I found this, and now I rock a platinum blonde pixie crop that serves as a great base for any bright colour I want to use. I'll warn you though, some natural looking colours will not come out right on repeatedly bleached hair- I used a brown over it and I went a naff purple instead! Make sure you know the colour of the creme to know the outcome it'll have on your head! That aside, there really isn't any better lightener out there, save for salons, and who wants to pay that price?
