Which lightener is for you?

Paul Mitchell are continuously improving their lighteners to ensure maximum results are achieved when lifting the hair and that blondes continue to keep having more fun. There’s more to the power of lightening than Paul Mitchell’s Synchrolift system – click HERE – So we’re delving into the full portfolio to discover two more ways to achieve excellent blonde results.

Dual-Purpose Lightener

A powder lightener which can be used for both on and off scalp lightening. The white, dust-free powder lightens with natural conditioning oils that lifts up to 7 levels – pretty quickly too. A versatile product for a gentle, even lift with control – making it ideal for any lightening technique –  plus it has a pleasant fragrance for a soothing experience – bonus!

Use for: on-scalp double process blonding, off-scalp foil highlighting, colour correction or any creative lightening technique.


A hand-painting clay lightener. Made with rice flour and kaolin clay which help form an instant shell during processing that won’t dry out, flake or transfer.

Use for: freehand application techniques, including balayage and organic foil-free highlights.

Refine & Tone

Once you’ve achieved the perfect level of lift, it’s time to deposit the tone. Paul Mitchell’s wide range of colour gives the stylist plenty of options when it comes to achieving the desired result. Choose from:

  • The Demi Flash Toners – for quick and easy toning
  • The Demi Demi-Permanent Hair Color – refines and tones blondes beautifully, plus the Clear add shines (a bit like a top coat)
  • Paul Mitchell Color XG Ultra Toners – to neutralise or intensify highlighted or pre-lightened hair
  • Paul Mitchell Crema XG Demi-Permanent Hair Color – a gentle, no-ammonia colour for ultimate condition and shine
