White Blonde Hair must be the hardest color to achieve – not really because it is hard , but it takes hours and a lot of tries to get to a white point. First thing you need to know to achieve this color is that it requirs bleach. Doesnt matter if you already have a natural blonde virgin hair, you will still need to bleach it at a point. To all the virgin blonde hair women – you can start with a highlifter first but it probably wont get to a white blonde shade, it is then when one shall use the blwach afterwards. Nevertheless this can be done as a bleach wash.
What Is A Bleach Wash?
A bleach wash is where you dilute the bleach with water. This requires one or two good washes and no conditioner. This is perfect as a second try of bleaching for the virgin blonde hair women. The shampooing is done so that the cuticle is open, that way the bleach enters in the cuticle of the hair. Moreover the waster is done so the bleach will not be as strong as it is when we do it directly on dry hair.
Follow These Steps For A Bleach Wash :
- One or two shampoo washes
- Towel Dry
- Apply the bleach mixture to your hair starting from the bottom to mid-lengths
Always start from the bottom to mid lengths when applying bleach. Irrelevant whether it is directly applied or applies as a bleach wash. One shall always start from the bottom to mid lengths, let it process and once you see that the desired blonde is achieved on the mid-lengths you can wash the hair dry it 100% and apply the bleach to the roots. Otherwise you can apply the bleach to the roots at the last 20-15 minutes of the remaining process time.
One must also add that when applying highlighters on virgin blonde hair go with the 40 volume so you can lighten the hair as much as possible. However when it lightens and you about to use bleach, go with a 20 volume instead. 20 volume is also good for when applying bleach to the roots. This information is only relevant to virgin blonde hair women.
Applying Bleach On Dark Hair
Applying bleach to dark colored hair is a bit more complicated especially on red pigments. Red pigments include red colors , browns with high use of red pigments in them and orange pigments such as copper colors. There is no doubt that for such colors the hair will need more than one time of bleaching. Always read the instructions on your instruction paper that is given with your products. Do not exceed the given time of process. If the hair finally after many tries , gets lightened but it has patchy areas go for a bleach wash. Bleach washing is not promised to remove everything. Moreover bleach washing is not recommended if the hair gets to a brittle state. Stained patched can get removed by toners.
For red pigments removal use ash colors. – Ash colors have green pigments as green removes red.
For orange pigments removal use blue or ash pigments. Since orange has a lot of red pigments ash can work great with orange pigments and so can blue pigments.
