Is peroxide available by the gallon anywhere?

I'm sick of buying lots of the little bottles from Wal-Mart's pharmacy and getting funny looks...lol. Is it possible to find hydrogen peroxide in larger volumes, like a gallon size?

Also, I have not tried the 40-volume peroxide...but if I were to get some of that would it be possible to cut it with water so I wouldn't have to buy so much?

If you don't have a Sally's Beauty Supply near you contact your closest hair salon supply company.


Farmer supply stores

I believe farm supply stores have it in gallon jugs. Go to a pharmacy and talk to a pharmacist - they can usually order stuff like that very easily, it's just obviously something they arent going to stock on the shelves.

Keep in mind that the two common concentrations of peroxide 3% like for cuts and scrapes and 12% aka 40 volume) peroxide can in a way be treated as two different chemicals. Their whitening powers differ, their safety procedures differ and how they are applied differ. Be sure what you are getting and know how to use it before you commit to a certain type.


buy it in 16/32 or 55 gallon
