A lady's hair is their crowning glory, well it's everyoone's crowing glory. That's why boys, girls, men and women take time fixing or doing their hair. There's nothing wrong with hair care, there are men who also has hair care routine just like other men who has skin care routine.

Well, let's talk about my hair.

I missed dyeing my hair. I have shared some of my hairventures here but feel free to check it out here:

I made them satisfied. Hihi

I wanna dye

Oh by the way, I just want to put a little disclaimer that I am not a hair professional but I've been dyeing my hair since 2012. I've tried several products that damaged and worked on my hair.

Alright!

It has been a while since I last dyed or bleached my hair. It was hard for me to resist when I got pregnant and after I gave birth because, I would always dye my hair almost every month or after less than 2 months. My friends already got used to it and would also share what color might look good in me.

When I got pregnant, of course I cannot dye my hair due to its smell and it's contents that my harm my Lil B inside me. After 9months my roots grew and my white hairs were waving hello. Of course after giving birth, I still can't dye my hair. I was only able to dye my hair around 2-3 months after giving birth. I just bleached my hair.

And now...

After 6 to 7 months of not dyeing again...

The horror of white hairs are becoming stronger than ever! 6 to 7 months = to 6 to 7 inches of natural hair and white hairs. That's when I decided to do something about it.

It's time...

Oh wait...

I decided to dye or bleach my hair again for the wedding that we will attend. My husband wants us to go because he also wants to introduce us to his co-workers too. Well, he wants to flaunt his lil B hahaha! Of course if that's he's reason, I can't just simply show up as a haggard wife and mother. He's also supportive about me dyeing my hair too.

Unfortunately, time is our enemy that time and I wasn't able to bleach my hair the way I wanted to. I was supposed to bleach my hair 2 because of my roots, but instead I did one session of bleach and just applied a purple conditioner so my hair hair won't be bright as a sun.

*purple shampoo

So here's how it looked like....

It was uneven as my roots are dark and needs 2x bleaching to get a level 8 to 10 lightness, I only bleached half from roots without using a foil.

Last week, the husband went home unexpectedly and I found a chance to retouch or do my 2nd bleaching session. He and Lil b can have a quality time hihihi.

I asked my sister to do it because I want to make pantay the color so I asked her to use a foil so I can have better results.

Oh I would also like to share the products that I used.

I found a super duper affordable bleaching powder on Shopee!

If you have long hair, I strongly recommend to prepare a bleaching mixture in a large or big container so that you won't have to mix again if it's not enough. The tendency is the mixture or the proportion of the bleaching powder and oxidizing lotion will not be the same as your first mixture unless you have a measuring cup. Remember, the ratio should be 1:1.

Alright, let me share the steps on how I bleached my hair.

  1. Prepare the bleaching powder, oxidizing lotion, brush, hair pins, container and gloves. Don't forget to use gloves as bleaching powder are strong and it stings to the skin. You might also damage your nails.

  2. Mix the bleaching powder and oxidizing lotion. As mentioned above, it should be 1part bleaching powder and 1 part oxidizing lotion. If you are using a boxed bleach set, just follow the instructions on the box, if you are using a bleaching powder better use a measuring cup. I don't use a measuring cup because... hahahhahaha, I got tips from the store where I buy hair products. The consistency should be like a melted icecream.

  3. Apply to hair. I would like to share a few tips.

  • Do not wash your hair before bleaching.

  • Apply oil to your SCALP, not to your hair.

  • Start from the bottom layer of your hair. (hair near you nape)

  • Apply at least an inch away from the roots/scalp

  • Then after applying bleach to all parts of your hair, you can now apply bleach to your roots. Why apply bleach to the roots last? Because it lightens faster than the tips of your hair strand and the longer the bleach stays in your hair may damage your scalp too.

  • Use a foil to have even and better results.

  1. After applying, check your hair to see if you have achieved the blonde or lightness that you want and rinse. 30 mins will do but do continue checking every 10mins.

  2. Do a 2nd bleaching session if you still want to achieve a lighter color. REMINDER: the lightness of your hair will depend on your hair type and color. Some people have dark hair but thin hair strands like me so I only need to bleach my hair once or twice. I know some people who have dark hair and thick hair strands, that may need a longer incubation (foil method) time or a few more bleaching sessions.

  3. Apply purple shampoo or toner (optional). If you will dye your hair again in a different color, no need to use purple shampoo. This is only used if you want have a blonde hair, silver, platinum blonde hair. It neutralizes brassy color after bleaching so your hair won't look yellow.

    I have used Wella T18 toner - I do not recommend it as it works like bleach too and stronger.

    I don't recommend Clairol Shimmer lights Purple Shampoo - good effect but my hair became so DRY after using it once or twice

    I've used, Lorea'l Purple shampoo - pricy and you need to use it several times to see its effect.

    I also have tried Technicolor's Purple shampoo. I liked it at first or the first batch that they manufactured but the 2nd time that I purchased their purple shampoo, it seems like they only mixed a purple dye and a conditioner and the purple tone will stay.

    *I also apply the purple shampoo like a hair dye and leave it for 5mins, leaving it on too long may turn your hair purple too but can be washed out.

After all my hanash..

Here's the result after 1 session of purple shampoo

After 3 sessions of purple shampoo

I know, I know... I will still do some purple shampoo sessions whenever I take a bath. :)

The top part of my hair looks lighter because I used a foil hahahaha. I am trying to bring back this hair.

I was able to achieve this shade by only using a purple shampoo after bleaching. I think that was 5 sessions of using purple shampoo or 2 weeks. I don't use it everyday though. It was also easy for me to achieve last time because I have short hair.

Don't worry my hair is damaged due to bleaching ahahaha!

I put argan oil (just 1 to 2 drops) to damp hair before letting it dry. You can also try to use baby oil (just a few drops too).

If you have any suggestions, violent comments and reaction, spill it on the comment section below. :)

Char!

Have a great day everyone!

Ganda nung hair mo sa last photo sis yung maigsi ang buhok mo. Paano yun maachieve. Ako din nagstart mga 2016 na siguro haha till now kapag gusto ko magbleach ginagawa ko na. Nakasanayan ko na pero minsna namimis ko din black and shini hair ko noon. Kasi now naging dry kakableach.😋 gumagamit naman ako ng hait treatment kasi natigil nito dahil naubusan ng budget.😅

I have more than three years without dyeing. I freed myself from that slavery every two months. I accepted my gray hair and highlighted it. My hair is white because of the gray. I use a purple color shampoo after shampooing without salt as I always keep it with hair surgery. I love my white hair with gray highlights. It's all a matter of adapting and loving your body and the stylish years. Your hair is beautiful.
