If it says off-scalp, you don't apply it to your scalp.  It'll probably cause irritation if you ignore the instructions and use it on your scalp anyway.

I read somewhere that 'off the scalp' lighteners/bleaches should ONLY be used by professionals because they are applied in specific ways. Sounds a little scary to me. I'd stick with an 'on the scalp' kind.

I used an on the scalp one, no irritation, no difficult or special application requirements, so I'd recommend on scalp if your unsure.

on the scalp bleach is bleach used to bleach the hair right up to the scalp. off the scalp bleach is used with highlights, where the bleach will never touch the scalp. if you use off scalp bleach on the scalp, you will get chemical burns.

learn to love what you were born with
you can do anything if you set your mindto it (just dont try this with hair,that could turn out bad)
