I’ve been getting a few questions about how I managed to get my hair so light from the red I had in it SO, for anyone else wondering here’s how I did it :)
I am very very fair naturally though so please remember that before trying the same process, you won’t achieve the same result if you’re naturally dark haired!
I had about 3 applications of orange on my hair and was blonde before this:
Colour B4 by Scott Cornwall (which will only strip to as close to your natural shade as it can, depending on how much dye you have built up, so it’ll never strip down to anything lighter than your natural colour: obvious I know but some people expect miracles!)
Then I bleached it, using one sachet of powder bleach by Jerome Russel with 9% peroxide cream (I would never usually use anything above 6% but I knew how light I wanted to go this time so went for the 9%, my personal advice would be to never go above 9% but it’s up to each individual)
At this point my hair was a dark peachy colour with red and pink tones, I then used a pre-lightener by Belle Blonde.
After the pre-lightener I put on a Pearl Blonde dye by John Frieda (I can’t remember the exact shade but it has a blonde lady on the box with a thick blunt fringe and short hair)
This was all on Friday evening and I was too tired to carry on so went to bed, on the Saturday I put on White Toner by Directions and left it for half an hour.
After rinsing out the toner I washed and conditioned using a silver shampoo and conditoner.
Obviously my hair was left really quite dry after this much strain so I put on a deep conditioning treatment and left it for half and hour and my hair is quite good considering.
What process did you undergo to get your hair that white? Could you please recommend any products that you used? It looks amazing! x
I used Colour B4 by Scott Cornwall then bleached it, pre-lightened it (I think with Belle blonde pre-lightener) and then dyed it a pearl blonde colour, the next day I put a toner on it and washed and conditioned with silver shampoo.
I’m naturally very very fair so it worked for me, this is just the process I used that worked for me, obviously it wont work for everyone.
