Before bleaching your hair, taking precautions to minimize damage is essential. One way to do this is by applying oil to your hair before bleaching. This helps protect your hair from potential damage during the bleaching process.
Step 2: Mixing
AchievingAchieving the desired blonde hue may take time and expertise, especially if your hair is thick or dark. It is recommended to consult a professional colorist who can use proper products and techniques. Powder bleach is the best type to use as it has a thick consistency and is less damaging. Combining it with a 20-volume developer will give you the best results.
Step 3: Applying
Bleach is a damaging chemical that can harm your hair and scalp. It dissolves the natural pigment in your hair strands, making them weak and brittle. When applying the bleach mixture, start from the back and work toward the crown. Focus on hard-to-reach areas first and then move to the roots. Continue using in thin sections every 10 minutes until you achieve your desired shade. Remember to rinse and condition your hair afterward.
Step 4: Rinsing
After bleaching, it’s important to rinse your hair carefully. Bleaching can leave your hair dry and vulnerable to damage. Use cold water rinses and follow up with masks or deep conditioners to hydrate your scalp. Use a shampoo designed for bleached or lightened hair to avoid stripping away its natural oils.
