Bleached Tips For Long Hair

Bleaching hair can be an intricate process. You’ll require the appropriate tools and techniques to achieve the desired results. If this is your first attempt at bleaching your locks, professional colorist services may be beneficial in terms of creating lasting color results.

How to bleach long hair

Long, thick hair can be challenging to lighten at home, so consulting a professional colorist might be best. They are trained in the intricacies of bleaching and knowing which products would best fit your hair texture.

If you are doing your own bleaching, start by applying the mixture with a tint brush using fully dry hair, using small sections as you work through each section to saturate them with the mixture thoroughly. It is best to start on your back quarter before moving onto crown areas, as this process should happen more rapidly due to being closer to your scalp.

Once the back quarter is finished, transition to the top sections by thoroughly saturating each cell and covering them with a shower cap or plastic bag. Allow your bleach to process for 30 or 45 minutes at a time before checking back every 10 minutes until it reaches your desired shade – then rinse thoroughly under cold water before following up with deep conditioner treatment afterward.

At home or in a salon, the key to successfully bleaching long hair is to follow the specific instructions of your product and its particular directions for the best results. Be sure to section off your locks, work the roots last, and saturate all sections with bleach for best results and to prevent hot roots or uneven processing.

Once your hair has reached a yellow-blonde level (or as light as desired), tone it using a toner designed for that shade. Different products work better when applied either dry or wet – just follow any applicable directions on each product for best results.

Reducing how often you heat style or blow dry your hair, and opting for quality color-treated shampoos and conditioners like our nourishing range can also help your locks remain healthier between bleaching sessions. Always protect them with heat protectant when heat styling to maintain healthy locks!

Bleaching tips for thick hair

Bleaching long hair requires practice to achieve the best results, but following these handy tips and tricks shouldn’t be complicated.

Before bleaching your hair, perform a strand test. This will allow you to evaluate if bleaching will damage it without causing irreparable harm; if your locks feel sticky or stretched out, don’t bleach them!

Before beginning with bleaching, ensure you use quality hair clips to separate each section of your hair, ensuring no spots go undetected and each team gets equal treatment. In addition, three days before lightening begins, you should apply a deep conditioning treatment such as Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer or Daily Damage Defense products to keep hydration and prevent protein loss during lightening processes – these can all help your locks remain nourished during this process.

Bleaching your hair is an extreme change requiring you to use chemicals that could cause irreparable harm if misapplied. Damage caused by bleach can vary depending on its type, its length of application time, and maintenance routines; minimize it further by choosing high-quality products and applying them correctly.

Begin the process as safely as possible by beginning with unwashed and dry hair with natural oils that will protect its strands from bleach damage while bleaching. Add leave-in conditioner for added hydration retention.

Add highlights or lowlights to your bleached hair for an enhanced soft look that’s easier to manage and style. Or consider two-tone hair coloring – especially when bleaching with the light gray developer; this shade looks particularly impressive on men with shorter styles like pompadours and taper fades.
