Review: Jolen Creme Bleach for Eyebrow Bleaching & New Hair Dye [Video]

An Old Twist Out

So listen:
I recently got my hair dyed and was going to do a big reveal and everything on the blog but there are a couple of reasons why that didn’t happen – one of those reasons being it is pretty much the EXACT same process/results from last year.  You can click here to read more about that experience.

The last time I dyed my hair I did not bleach my brows to match, but upon further consideration,  I decided this time that lightening my brows would be a nice way to complement the whole dye job.

So along with the help of McKenzie Renae’s written experience, I did it.  Now, I naturally do not have thick brows (thanks Mom), but what I do have, I like to be shaped and colored correctly.  I’m just throwing that out there before someone says “well, your brows aren’t really that thick”.  I know.

Back to the process!

I created a video discussing what I was looking to do with my eyebrows and some FAQ’s about my hair and dye.  If you are interested in learning more about either, you can watch the video here:

Product Used: Jolen

Price: Approx. $6 (via Walgreens)
Included in kit:
Instructions
Tray
Spatula
Bleach Creme
Accelerator Powder
Process: Please read the directions/instructions supplied by the company prior to bleaching any areas of your body.  Perform a patch/skin test on your body 24hrs prior to bleaching any hair.  If the product gets in your eyes, rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
  1. Clean face completely.
  2. On the tray, measure out 1/4 tsp accelerator powder with spatula.
  3. Using same spatula, measure 1/2 tsp bleach creme.
  4. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Again, using the spatula, apply mixture to eyebrows.
  6. Allow mixture to work for 10 minutes.
  7. Clean off with cool, damp rag.
  8. If a lighter color is desired, reapply and let mixture sit for 5-10 minutes and wipe clean.
I washed my face, again, immediately after I approved my results to make sure I didn’t have any product left over.

Overall conclusion:
Jolen wasn’t hard to use, wasn’t messy (could be if you don’t pay attention to what you’re doing) and was very straight forward.  I had to use it twice (15 minutes total) to get the desired color I was going for.  It doesn’t cost much ($6) whereas I would pay someone double if not triple to do the same exact thing I did, so it’s worth the money.  Would I use it again? Uh… yea!
Have you ever dyed your brows? What product did you use?
  • My sister and I used to do this often in early 2000, using Jolen with wonderful results! We first saw MUA Sam Fine use this technique. I recently cut my locs and plan to sport a low fade from now on so it’s time to tame my dark unruly brows again. Happy to hear that you get your color professionally done 🙂

  • Low fade? OM.. Okay. When you do it, send me pics. K?
