Damaged or Broken Hair

Leaving the mixture on the hair too long

During root application, applying mixture to previously lightened hair

Suggested remedy

Use an intensive conditioner and take another strand test before re-applying any more product. 

Probable cause 

Using heat whilst applying the lightener.

Follow instructions and NEVER use heat with Jerome Russell lighteners.

Probable cause 

Applying the lightener to hair that has been previously lightened using a spray in hair lightener (that contains metallic salts) or Henna product.

If you have used a spray in metallic salts product always do a strand test and if the hair heats up or has a reaction do not use lightener until existing hair colour has grown out completely.
