      Great product I had black hair and didn’t want to use regular bleach and have previously bought Blue Ruin and loved the product and the condition of my hair afterwards. Only wish it was available in the UK as shipping and customs is quite costly. But the products are all amazing.

      This is hands down the best lightener I have ever used! It worked so fast and lifted my hair to a super light, almost white, blonde—the perfect canvas for vibrant color!! My hair is super thick so I had to supplement with some old bleach for part of my head and the difference in end result was insane. It also didn’t leave my hair brittle or dry like bleach tends to. Now I know to buy two next time. And there will definitely be a next time!!

      This is a great lightening kit at a great price. The product works quickly, and the amount provided was more than enough to cover all of my hair (mine is slightly longer than shoulder length for reference.) I used the kit yesterday, when I washed it out I used the scalp wash to make sure I got it all out of my roots, and after towel drying used the prime spray before blow-drying. I am proud to report that my hair is not damaged and I am not experiencing any breakage, and my hair is fine/thin so I usually expect some damage after a process like this. I will definitely purchase again to maintain my roots in a few weeks. Thank you, GDY!

      This was the first time doing anything to my hair, I have very dark brown (close to black) hair and I expected my hair to be orange once I applied the first time. So I bought two kits so I could do another round and I’m very happy with the results! The smell of the lightener was bearable so that was a plus to my lightening experience!

      Ordered two packs and it perfectly covered all of my hair (just past shoulder length) and lightened my medium brown roots to a nice blonde. It did cause some irritation but I think that’s on my end

        Hi Reece,

        Thanks for your review on our lighting kit. I am so glad you enjoyed it. While we pride ourselves on having a gentle lighting kit, if you do have sensitive skin, much like any other lighting kit, it may cause some irritation. IF you have any other questions about this, feel free to reach out to our hair expert Becca at

      This was my first time putting any sort of dye in my virgin black hair, I was really disappointed with the results. It turned my hair so orange and not blonde as I was expecting it. I don’t know what to do because I wanted to dye my hair blue but it will look just so swampy over the orange.

      • Becca from GDY

        Hi there! Thank you for your review. With lightener on black hair, it is possible you may need to lift it twice to get to a nice blonde base. The lightener has to break through all the underlying pigments before the hair reaches blonde and it is possible that it just needs to sit on a bit longer to break through the orange pigments. Feel free to email us at for more help!

      My only regret was not buying more. The kit quickly lightened my medium brown hair and left my hair feeling soft afterwards. Unfortunately, my hair is just past shoulder length and I should have ordered at least two lightening kits the first time.

      • Jackie from GDY

        Hi Miranda,

        Thank you for your review on our lightening kit! We are glad you love it! Depending on the length and thickness of your hair you may need more than one lightening kit, but that just means you get more fun mail! Happy Dyeing!

      The GDY Lightening Kit worked flawlessly for me! I was able to go from my Dark Brown natural hair to Riot Orange and it looked EXACTLY like the pictures from the models! I am thoroughly in love with GDY and the fact that their lightening kit worked so well for me was just astounding. 5/5 easily.


        Hi Robert,

        Thank you for your review on our lightening kit. We are so glad you love it! Happy Dyeing!

      I wish I could give this 4 1/2 stars because it works beautifully!! the only issue is that I’m allergic to it 🙁 if y’all could maybe make a sensitive skin version I would be so happy!!!!

        If there’s anything else we can help you with, please feel free to email us at!

  • Lightening your hair will give the most vibrant results from your GDY Semi-Permanent Dye.
  • To create the lightening mix, we’ve made it easy for you! Simply mix one bottle of the Creme Developer with one packet of Powder Lightener in a non-metallic bowl to a creamy consistency.
  • We recommend a strand test before full application
  • 1. Hair should be dry and it’s best if hair is unwashed.
    2. Section your hair and apply the lightening mixture with a gloved hand or brush. (TIPS: saturate the hair and cover it when you finish, to keep the Lightener from drying out. When it dries, it stops working. Protect your skin from irritation by applying shea butter, coconut oil or thick hair conditioner to your hairline and over the ears.)
    3. Let your hair process for no more than 50 minutes, until you achieve the desired tone. Check consistently (every 5-10 minutes) to evaluate the color lift.
    4. After you achieve the desired result, rinse and shampoo your hair thoroughly with warm water until you are sure all of the product is removed. Do NOT condition the hair, as your Semi-Permanent Dye will act like your conditioner when you apply.
    5. Wait at least 24 hours before any further lightening.
    6. Before coloring with GDY Semi-Permanent Dye, make sure hair is totally dry. When it is, you’re ready for color!


  • This depends on whether you are simply doing a small section of your hair or the entire head. An entire head could require two Hair Lightening Kits.
