How to Bleach Your Hair: What Color Powder to Use, Developers, and Extra Tips!

Updated on January 18, 2018

Choosing your products

The biggest factor in hair bleaching is choosing the right bleach powder for your hair needs. If your hair has orange tones you will want to use a blue bleach powder, and if you have a lot of yellow you'll want a violet bleach. The developer you use will also make a great difference on how fast your hair color lifts. There are four levels of developer, level 10 is like a level 1 when it comes to lifting and lightning color, you should use a level 10 if you want little lift. Level 20 is in between and personally what i use, level 30 is the highest i would recommend going unless you have extremely thick coarse hair, which then i would recommend the level 40 which is the highest, therefor it lifts the quickest and most. You will also need: a mixing bowl, a brush applicator and gloves. Optional: Deep conditioner, shower cap. ** You can find all of these items at your local beauty supply store! **

As you can see my roots are lighter than the ends of my hair because the bleach was placed at the roots first.

The process

Step 1: Put on an old tee shirt and make sure anything you don't want bleach on is covered or out of the way.

Step 2: Section off hair into 3 or more sections using hair clips.

Step 3: Put on gloves & Mix equal parts bleach powder and developer in your designated bowl.

Step 4: Starting at the ends of your hair on the bottom layer gently brush bleach mixture onto the hair, making sure you get every bit working your way up to the roots. **Always make sure to apply bleach to the roots last because the heat from your scalp will process it quicker making the roots a lot lighter than the rest of the hair. **

Step 5: Keep doing the same as step 4 until all of the sections of hair have been covered with the bleach mixture.

Step 6: If wanted put a shower cap over the hair while you let it process for the designated time based on the bleach'es directions. ** Doing so will help process it quicker from the heat off your head.**

Step 7: Under warm water rinse the bleach out of your hair using your regular shampoo and conditioner * Deep condition if wanted*, Before you get out of the shower blast your hair will cold water to close your hair follicles.
