Nowadays, there are so many tutorials about dyeing your hair at home and I might be late with mine but I still get questions about my hair so I decide to make a post about it.
Just a heads up, I’m not a hair stylist and the only experience I have is with my own hair that I’ve been dyeing for almost 6 years.
I know every hair is different and before you try anything at home,don’t forget to do all the allergy tests and follow all the packaging instructions.
First of all, I start the preparation with not washing my hair for at least 3-4 days so it can have more dirt and grease on it. I know it sounds weird but I’ve read so many times that the dirt on your hair actually protects it while bleaching so I started to believe it. Of course it’s impossible to protect your hair from bleaching because it burns cells in your hair but at least it gives me some kind of peace of mind.
Now to the actual bleaching.
I’ve tried so many different brands and types of hair bleach but the only one so far I’m happy with is this duo that actually comes separately from Jerome Russell. It’s the Bblond range – high lift powder bleach and maximum cream peroxide (I use vol.40 because my natural hair colour is very dark brown but there is vol.30 for lighter hair).The powder comes in a box of 4 sachets. And you’ll need 1 bottle of cream peroxide for each sachet.
After I mix it well, as much as I can, I separate my hair into few sections and apply it on my roots.I’m trying not to touch the rest of my hair because it’s already damaged enough.
Make sure you covered the roots well and if you have someone to help you with the back, it’s always better.I leave it to develop for about 30 minutes but I’d your hair is lighter you have to keep an eye on it because it’ll be bleached faster than that. After that I wash it with a purple shampoo to eliminate the orange shade that comes out from my dark hair being bleached.
Sectioned my towel dry hair into 3 parts, bottom and 2 on the top.
I like to experiment with the colour and mix few shades of blue together.In this occasion I’m using this:
For a base I always put some conditioner and from there I start building the colour. The conditioner is making the dye lighter and also helps my hair not being so dry and damaged.
Now, always remember that the colour will look darker than it’ll actually be on your hair.
After I’m happy with the colour, I start from the bottom of my head and go to the top.I apply the dye only on my roots.Once I cover the roots, I put some dye on the rest of the hair and start massaging all of it to make sure it’s all covered.
After I massage some of this and brush it:
I prefer to leave my hair to dry by itself and then when it’s 90% dry I use this to make it look soft and pretty.
This is the final result:
