As you might know, I’m either extremely early or extremely late to the party. This time it seems like I’m late, about four or five years late.
I’m a pretty impulsive person and about two weeks ago I decided one morning when I woke up that I was gonna change my hair, that day. And I know myself well enough to know that my impulsive decisions often are the ones I’m the most satisfied with.
So this is how I did it; (please keep in mind that I am NOT a professional in any way and that this might be the worst thing that you could do to your hair)
I started off with teasing my hair until there were only small pieces of ‘loose’ hair hanging around and it felt like I had a hat on my head with all of the teased hair close to my scalp. This way there will be different length of the hair when it’s time for the bleach and it will look more natural since there won’t be an abrupt stop to the lighter parts.
After I had mixed the bleach I had to tease my hair again, since it apparently didn’t want to look like a birds nest (I do appreciate my hair doing this but this was not a good time for it to be messing with me) and I started to apply the bleach unto the tips of my hair, waited ten minutes and then applied bleach again, but this time not only the tips but also a couple of centimeters up, creating sections and waiting ten minutes between every section. I think I had about four or five sections, I can’t really remember but since I have such short hair I was worried that it was just gonna look ridiculous. And i you have a longer hair I would suggest you buying two packets of bleach instead of one. (also, if your hair is really dark)
After waiting for about 50 minutes I washed the bleach out, continuing to take a shower, since my hair was a complete mess and I needed to sort it out.
As I helper to that, I used a lot of conditioner and tried not to comb it out with a brush but with my fingers solely. It’s been damaged enough in under an hour.
This is how it looked when I got out of the shower and blow-dried it;
As you might see, it’s really damaged and I wouldn’t recommend you to do this if you’re not willing to sacrifice the quality of your hair. Still I think the result was really good, since I wasn’t completely sure what I was doing.
I’m satisfied, for now.
