the Only Lightener Perfect for Balayage Sunlights Lightener, with up to six levels of lift with no heat, was designed specifically for the Balayage Artist. Unlike predominantly silica (sand) based foil lighteners, the kaolin (clay) in Sunlights provides the optimal consistency and saturation for painting hair. When you use a granulated foil lightener when painting balayage, you end up with puffing, dusting, bleeding, and holes in your highlighted streak. Quit getting frustrated and start using Sunlights today. One tub of lightener produces 34 balayage applications. Sunlights can be mixed with any manufacturers' creme developer.
