"consumer" peroxide is sometimes sold by "volume" concentration. Normal 3% H2O2 is (IIRC) also known as "10 volume" because one volume of liquid will produce 10 volumes of oxygen. Similarly, 6% is known as "20 volume", and perhaps you can get "30 volume" (which would still be less than the 12% someone mentioned seeing as a cosmetic supply. Higher concentrations of consumer grade H2O2 are likely to be loaded with assorted "stablizers" that may make them unsuitable for some uses. The "improvised explosives" using H2O2 as a starting point are to be avoided, IMO. Stick with fireworks and leave the sensitive and unstable primary explosives to desperate freedom fighters...

Since when they are selling 30%? The strongest hydrogen peroxide I've seen at this kind of stores is 12%. I believe that 30% would give you some nice burn if touched with your skin so there is no use for selling such strong solution at hair saloon.

Trust me... I could show you the scar on my hand. Peroxide at that level isn't available to the public. If you can aquire 12% Hydrogen Peroxide without a cosmology license, just mix it 1:1 (half & half) with Distilled water to produce a 6% solution.

jtobako's right. Just create a 4:1 solution of Distilled Water with the 30% solution to get a 6% solution.
