Product Review: Bleach
I have been wanting my hair to be a lighter blonde for a little while now and it was root touch up time so I decided to try a new product.
Extra Bleach Blonding
Intense 1 step Lightening System colour 205
If you have dark brown - black hair I would not use this product, go to Sally's and buy each product needed separately.
The box came with two packages of lightening powder, 20V creme developer, one bottle of shimmering oil and conditioner to rinse everything out.
Because the box only came with a 20V I had to use my own 30V knowing that the 20V wouldn't work.
I mixed the two bleach packages with the creme developer and added the whole bottle of the oil and mixed everything together. Because my roots were dark I started to apply the bleach to my roots first and left it for 40 min and then applied to the rest of my head for 30min, with a total of 70min. I waited until my hair was a pale yellow without leaving it on for too long.
After bleaching I toned my hair with wella colorcharm T18 and it got rid of most of the yellow tones. Now once a week I am using my purple shampoo to gradually lighten my colour more to a lighter platinum colour. I am currently using Light Blue Shade purple shampoo from my drugstore, but have run out and I am going to start using Clairol Shimmer lights.
(pictures were taken before using purple shampoo, so my hair looks more platinum now than in these pictures)
Overall a good product if your hair is a dark blonde to light/medium brown because the 20V wont lift your hair enough if it is a darker colour.
For my next root touch up instead of using this product I am just going to buy bleach and more developer and use that instead, because its much cheaper in the long run.
I hope you all enjoyed this review and that it was helpful for anyone trying to lighten their blonde hair or to go blonde.
