Bleaching your hair at home for a shiny blond

How to bleach your hair at home

I remember with great tenderness when as a teenager I wanted the hair a bit ‘more blond and used the pure hydrogen peroxide! What a disaster… but you always learn from mistakes.

The hair discoloration serves either to get a shiny platinum blond or to make the hair very dark in blond. With a medium blond or light brown, it is possible to discolor blond hair by clearing it up to platinum blond.

If, like me, you dream of platinum blonde hair or lightening evenly, you can resort to a simple do-it-yourself discoloration, which can also lighten very dark hair.

Even in this case it is important to choose the right product and if during the treatment you will see your hair change color from red to yellow, do not worry you will get to the platinum blond, just respect the laying times, a very important factor for all treatments of coloring and discoloration.

Both in the case of dyes and bleaching products, the product should be applied to the base of the dry hair as evenly as possible and rinsed carefully after 20 to 30 minutes (read and strictly observe the times indicated in the product instructions).

It is essential to devote some pampering to the hair immediately after treatment, using the conditioner provided with the color after rinsing and to be kept in place for at least five minutes.

Finally, be confident, because the result will be perfect.

It often happens that dye stains can remain behind the ears or on the forehead, it happens to all, quiet. If the hair dye is light colored it is the easiest to send away. Just rub with a makeup pad soaked in some lemon.

If the stain is dark, you must use bicarbonate.

So all clear? And for any disaster – which certainly will not happen – stay calm because there is always a hairdresser waiting for you!
