Bleaching Hair at Home – How-To Questions
Do you have a question that’s not addressed below? Write a comment and I’ll get back to you!
What bleach should I use to dye my hair blonde?
I recommend PrismLites by SalonCare.
Should I use purple or blue powdered bleach?
You should use violet (or purple) powdered leach to remove gold/yellow hues. You should use blue powdered bleach to remove orange hues.
How long should I keep bleach on my hair?
You should keep bleach on your hair for about 30 minutes. If you are going from dark hair to light hair, you may need to leave the bleach on your hair for longer.
Always read the instructions on the packaging.
Can I bleach my hair while pregnant?
Yes. You can bleach and color your hair while pregnant.
However, it is recommended that you wait to dye your hair after the first 3 months of pregnancy.
Can I bleach my hair after using Color Oops?
It is recommended that you wait at least five days to bleach your hair again after using Color Oops.
I’d recommend waiting at least 10 days and using a deep conditioning treatment before bleaching your hair again. You don’t want to damage your hair!
What volume developer should I mix with bleach?
I’d recommend using 20 volume developer. It will “lift” (or lighten) your hair by 1-2 levels. If you want to go from very dark hair to very blonde hair you should use 30 volume developer.
How do I rinse bleach out of my hair?
You should rinse bleach out of your hair with warm water and a sulfate-free shampoo. I’d recommend the L’Oreal sulfate-free shampoo.
Do I have to bleach my hair before using toner?
No. You don’t have to bleach your hair before using toner.
However, it is recommended that you bleach your hair before using toner if you want your hair to be noticeably lighter. Additionally, some Wella toners won’t look good unless you lighten your hair first to the recommended color.
How often should I bleach my hair?
You should bleach your hair when your roots start to show! I recommend every month.
