How to bleach your hair

Hello everyone, as you know we have dyed our hair pink! To do so we had to bleach our hair from dark red to light blonde.  In this post we are going to show you the process :) First of all here is the final result:  Section your hair and tie them up. This is really important if you are not experienced!

before pictures here and here
Always start the process from the back of your head as your hair are thicker and as a result it's harder to lighten them. Don't apply bleach to the whole strand. Leave 1 inch of the roots and 1 inch from the ends uncovered!
After 10 minutes apply the mixture to the ends and 10-15 minutes before the end of the process quickly apply to the roots if you want an even result. The heat of your scalp will accelerate the process so they don't need more time.
Here you can see the results! We are not experienced in doing the process quickly so we did in steps.
Notice Daphne's hair (on the right) was bright red dyed with feria that's why they turned bright pink/red. 
You can see it better here:


Notes:
  • We are not professionals in any way, but we did a lot of research before doing this so feel free to ask us any questions.
  • We used 30-35 vol bleach and left it on for 50 min.
  • We dyed the hair pink twice to get the final result with directions dark tulip extremely dilluted with conditioner.

  64. OMG! Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! :] I love checking out other people's blogs and I'm glad I read your guy's blog! Btw, I absolutely LOVE the hair color! I'd never be able to do that (plus, I can't because of work policy T_T) but I was thinking about doing a natural looking red color! I love the layout of the blog also, very artistic! You've got a new follower!

  65. Awww you both look brilliant with pink hair ! This was really helpful, I've been playing with the idea of bleaching my hair to put a new colour over for ages but my hair has been black for a few years now so it might be more of a hassle :/ lovely post ! xo

  67. how much did this damage your hair? I have curly hair that's ombré and I want to go a light pastel pinky/purplish! do you have any tips and do you know if it would take away my curls??! D: xoxo

    1. Hi!
      I have curly hair (Daphne) and yeah if your hair does get damaged it will take away your curls. I have dyed my hair multiple times and I've managed to damage some hair in the front. But it wasn't that bad. it was a really small portion of my hair like 3 inches from the bottom, so gradually i just cut it off. The rest of my hair that have been through A LOT is as bouncy as ever. So if you take it slow and be careful you will be fine :D

  68. What's the name of the pink hair dye? And does it have to be a dye or can it also be semi permanent?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The name of the pink dye is "dark tulip" from directions la riche.

      http://www.lariche.co.uk/directions-hair-colour

      This color is really dark in the box but we used almost one a drop in a huge bowl of contitioner and it came out pink.
      It's not a permanent dye but it's a semi permanent conditioning color and doesn't damage the hair at all.
