Cream & Clay Lightener

Clay Lighteners & Cream Bleach

You may be familiar with blue, white and violet bleaches available for professional use. On top of that, you can then get bleach that is ammonia-free on in a non-powdered form. On the market today, there's also cream bleach and clay lightening on top the traditional powdered bleach.

Cream bleaches work very similarly to a regular bleaching powder. The difference is that it comes in a cream form with extra additives. The formula often contains things like keratin and argan. These additives help to make for a more delicate bleaching service over traditional methods. It has the ability to lighten the hair up to 8 tones lighter in most brands.

Clay Lighteners or Cream Bleach?

When choosing between lightener vs bleach, there are some scenarios where you might want to lean one way rather than the other. The clay lighteners are better suited to carrying out balayage routines. The texture is suited to freehand techniques as it's not as runny as other forms. However, it doesn't lift as well as cream bleaches so it's recommended to use on lighter hair types.

On average, it will lift between 6 to 7 shades. If you're uncertain the best bleach for your salon, ask our friendly staff and we will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

Cream bleach and powder bleach are both used for hair lightening, but they differ in their application. Cream bleach has a smooth consistency and can be applied directly without the need for mixing. On the other hand, powder bleach comes in a powder form and requires mixing with a developer, providing more control over the consistency and strength of the mixture. Cream bleach is user-friendly and suitable for beginners, while powder bleach requires more preparation and experience.

Cream lightener is a hair lightening product with a creamy consistency, used for hair lightening or bleaching. It is used to lift the natural colour of hair which in turn allows for creating highlights or balayage, root touch ups, or simply moving to an overall lighter hair colour. Cream lighteners are typically mixed with a developer (hydrogen peroxide) before application and the creamy consistency makes it particularly useful for colouring techniques that require precision.

Cream lightener is preferred by many hairdressers when precise application is required for colouring services like highlighting. That's because the creamy texture gives added control. Powder lightener can provide strong lift with a fast processing time which makes it the preferred option with some hairdressers especially when it comes to dramatic colour changes. Overall, it's a matter of personal preference.
