Just found this. I had a White Period in seminary. Wow. I was also about 60 lbs. lighter (a momentary weight loss brought about by diet pills prescribed by my doc -- NOT safe, by the way, although she said they were -- and seminary insanity). 1998? I dyed my hair with Jolene cream bleach. True story.
I followed the directions on the package and mixed a small amount of the Jolen Creme Bleach and accelerator powder in the provided cup. I applied the Jolene Cream Bleach with the enclosed spatula and a q-tip, but in hindsight I think working it in with an old spoolie would have been better. The instructions say to leave the creme on for 10 minutes, but remember that is to bleach and I only wanted to lighten. To be on the safe side I left the Jolen Creme Bleach on for about 2 minutes and removed to check. My brows were still pretty dark at this point, so I applied again for another 2 minutes. This time when I removed the creme I could see that my brows were a bit lighter, but not extreme which was perfect. My eyebrows are now a med-dark brown and my brow fill looks more natural.
