Perfect for the client who likes to change their color often.


For best results prep the hair with Malibu C CPR prior to application of DDL XL.

Activation: Open and pour DDL XL crystals into a non-metallic mixing bowl. Add 1.5 ounces of 10-20 volume developer. Mix thoroughly and use immediately. For gentler lifting and to remove blue/green hues, mix DDL XL with water instead of developer. Additives are not recommended.

Application: Section hair and apply freshly mixed DDL XL with a brush to each section. Allow to remain on hair for a maximum of 45 minutes. The longer the processing time, the greater the lift. Check hair every 5 minutes until desired results are achieved. Shampoo thoroughly and rinse (Malibu C Un-Do-Goo Shampoo is recommended). Heat is not recommended. Use Malibu C De-OX to stop oxidation after processing.

CAUTIONS: Do a strand test prior to application. Do not apply if test shows splitting. Avoid contact with eyes. If any mixture gets into eyes rinse immediately with water and call a physician immediately. Do not apply  or use on: (1) Eyelashes or eyebrows.  (2) Children. (3) Scalp or skin. (4) Hair coated with metallic dyes. Rinse immediately if itching or burning occurs. Use suitable gloves when applying, working and  rinsing.
