Dye-ing 101

This page is — still — under construction.*

BUT HERE ARE SOME QUICK TIPS ON BLEACHING/DYE-ING:

  1. Plan when it’s going to happen. Most probably before you take your bath (after you missed it for 2 – 5 days)
  2. Don’t wash your hair for 2-5 days before bleaching
  3. Be sure to do a lot of research about hair toning before the actual bleaching
  4. Ventilate the room
  5. Remove your earrings (all other metal things on your head and body)
  6. Use plastic (or glass) tub and brush for mixing (no metals, my friend)
  7. Use gloves (plastic/latex)
  8. Part your hair to sections — smallest possible sections.
  9. Comb your hair while the mixture is on your hair (to even that application out)
  10. Leave for about 20-30 minutes (maximum 45 minutes or you’ll end up frying your hair)
  11. Check from time to time: if lifting is taking up
  12. Wash and rinse hair *thoroughly* in running *cold* water
  13. Apply generous amount of conditioner and/or oils in your head.
