In the meantime, let’s review some of the best tricks for bleaching and dying hair at home. Before you put peroxide on your hair, you need to prepare. In the weeks before, avoid using shampoos with sulfates and don’t blow-dry your hair. Do everything you can to keep your locks lustrous and healthy because bleaching is stressful.
On the day you plan to dye, round up 3% hydrogen peroxide, a spray bottle, hair clips, cotton balls, and a towel. First, wash your hair well and let it air dry till it’s only damp. Then use a cotton ball to test the peroxide on a small section to see what happens. Let the peroxide sit for 30 minutes, then rinse it out with cold water.
If all is well, it’s time to section off your hair with clips. Then you’ll apply the hydrogen peroxide according to the look you desire. For highlights, soak a cotton ball and place it on your scalp at the roots. Drag it down through your hair until you reach the tips. Repeat as much as you need until you’ve highlighted all the sections you want.
On the contrary, if you want ombre shading, place the cotton ball at the roots and drag it upward until you’re near, but not on, the hair roots. Or if you want a total bleaching, spray the peroxide all over each section and comb it through.
Generally, you’ll need to leave the peroxide work for 30 minutes, but this can vary depending on your natural hair color. You may have to repeat the application process to completely bleach your hair. Just be sure to rinse well with cold water and apply conditioner after each attempt. And go slow if you have red hair as it’s the most likely to turn orange.
Whether using dyes or peroxide, it’s important to protect your skin. Applying some vaseline at your hairline is helpful. As soon as possible, rinse the skin well with soap and water afterward for getting hair dye off skin on your hands, scalp, neck, and face.
