So not to long ago I finally got to ombre my hair for summer , I was so ecstatic about doing it but was scared about the bleaching process. I know bleach has very harmful chemicals that can basically fry your hair causing someone to cut that section of hair off. I know for me that was not an option so everything had to be done perfectly. If you don't have the extra income to spend on getting it professionally done , like me , then do your research. I did extensive research on how to bleach ,how long to keep it in and the after care. However with the after care I went a different route..Unfortunately this isn't a vlog because I've already dyed it.
So to begin with the bleach I used was by Loreal 30 developer and obviously powder bleach because my hair is so dark I had to use a high volume to lift my black hair. I mixed it for about 3 minutes then put it at the very ends of my hair and let it set for about a hour because thats when I saw my desired hair color.Other with light hair can probably wait about 30-45 minutes. I think went up more on my hair then let the bleach stay for about 30 minutes to get that nice gradient effect. My hair came out splendid but didn't have the same texture of course.
This was the end result
My hair came out just the way I wanted but in real life the blonde was ten times more intense !
So for after care I then used this amazing Olive oil shampoo and conditioner that I used right after bleaching it. I shampooed as normal and the instructions said leave the conditioner in for 45 minutes. It did wonders for my hair and had my hair feeling as if I had never bleached it ! You can purchase this treatment at your local wal-mart for around 5 dollars.
Then on the days when I wouldn't wash my hair I would use Argon oil all over my head to treat split ends , speed up the growing process and keep my hair hydrated. However be careful not to over hydrate cause that easily make your hair break because it's so soft. I then and still do take biotin took keep my hair healthy and growing normally! You can purchase the oil at CVS or Sally's beauty supply and the biotin from wal-mart.
That's all for now and don't forget to follow !
