how to bleach your hair

Spray your hair with lemon juice solution.
Depending on how long your hair is and how much of it you want to bleach, you’ll need the juice of 2 to 5 lemons.
Pouring full-strength lemon juice on your hair can really dry it out, so it’s important to dilute the juice with water.
All the lemon juice solution to completely dry in your hair for about 30 minutes.
Dampen the free section of your hair with peroxide, making sure to spray it from all sides.
This article describes three different ways to bleach your hair: using lemon juice, peroxide or professional bleaching supplies.
The sun will react with the lemon juice and cause your hair to lighten.
Spray the area you want to bleach liberally with lemon juice solution, making sure the area is completely damp.
After you’ve determined which method you want to use, test one small piece of your hair, preferably in a discreet place, so you’ll know exactly what outcome to expect when you apply it to your entire head.
Have you always wanted to bleach your hair? Bleach blonde hair is as edgy as it is glamorous – maybe that’s why it never goes out of style.
Use cool water to remove all traces of peroxide from your hair, then use a deep conditioner to restore its moisture.
Rise out all of the bleach, then use the special shampoo for bleached hair.
No matter what bleaching method you use, it’s going to cause your hair to get a little dryer and more fragile than normal.

If you tend to want to highlight your hair during the summer but prefer to steer clear of harsh chemical lighteners, there is a great homemade recipe that you can try.
Honey is a great lightening ingredient and the olive oil in this recipe will help to keep hair from drying out.
Homemade lightening is much less expensive than buying highlighter in the store and you can use it more than once because there are no chemicals to cause dry and brittle hair.

After a shitty Korean salon experience (I’m not Korean but I thought I’d go to d best Korean salon in town) who bleached my hair orange, I bought myself 2packets of Schwartzkopf Nordic Blonde L1 permanent haircolor & after coloring my hair in full everytime I get roots (which I’ve done 4 times), all my hair has become platinum blonde except now I only needed to color my roots.
The kind of flaxen hair that says you spend all your time on the beach, going platinum from the sun and letting the salt-water style it into that halo of wavy, cool-kid frizz…always with a generous helping of dark roots, and the ends completely washed out because they’ve been around for a while.

On the day you plan to bleach your hair, wash and condition it as normal to make sure the oils and grime caused by natural wear and styling products don’t interfere with the peroxide.
For dark hair you can leave the peroxide in your hair for an hour to get the results similar to if a lighter haired person left it in for 15-30 minutes.
Read on for information on how to prepare your hair for bleaching, apply the peroxide treatment, and maintain it for the best results.
If you are looking for a cheap, easy way to brighten your hair or bring out your natural highlights, consider bleaching your hair with hydrogen peroxide.
Decide how much of your hair you want to bleach, and use the peroxide accordingly.
Take a small section from the underside of your hair and use a cotton ball to apply peroxide.
Use the strand test to gauge how much peroxide you want to use on your hair.
Leave the hydrogen peroxide in your hair for about 30 minutes.
Sectioning your hair will help you make sure you treat every last lock with peroxide.
The first time you use the peroxide treatment, your hair may get just a little lighter.
To bleach your hair with peroxide, you’ll need the following materials.
Remember that using peroxide can damage your hair if you do it too often.
The more peroxide you use and the longer you leave it in your hair, the brighter it will be.
Once your hair is reasonably dry, section off parts of hair you want bleached with claw clips.
Depending on how dark your hair is, how light you want it, and how much irritation the chemical may cause, you’ll want to experiment and play around with it.

However, I do not recommend this, as it is very damaging to your hair! If your hair is not coming out light enough, even after an hour, wash the bleach out, and give your hair a few days of deep conditioning before bleaching again.
Take a section of hair on the bottom and brush some bleach on that sucker from the roots to the ends.
I had thick, layered hair just past my shoulders, and I started off using two scoops of bleach powder.
You’ll want to bleach the rest of your hair quickly, so that it all soaks in the bleach for the time you estimated based on your test.
Manic Panic’s "Flashlightning" bleach kit didn’t work well for me, because there wasn’t enough bleach powder for all of my hair.
When your hair is as light as you want it, go ahead and wash the bleach out with cold water.
I am planning on bleaching my dark brown hair to a honey blonde & then getting platinum blonde highlights.
You want to be sure all of the hair comes into contact with the bleach.
After you’ve bleached, toned, and potentially dyed your hair a crazy color, you must condition!!! I used a deep conditioner in the shower, leaving it in for 3-5 minutes.
Your hair may be angry at you for bleaching it, so make sure you use conditioners and oils, and try to avoid using heat on it.
awww thanks boo 🙂 my roots were grown out pretty bad, but i did have a nice platinum blonde for a while! I think since my eyebrows and complexion are too dark for blonde hair, it looked funny if I had blonde roots.
Since I have so much hair, it took me a while to bleach, and my strips were through soaking at different times.
Start from the bottom and work your way up your scalp – use your fingers or a comb to gather a horizontal section of hair across the bottom of your head.
Do this for each quarter of your hair, mixing more bleach as needed.
If your hair isn’t light enough, you may need to bleach again.
Bleaching can be a very damaging process, so you want to make sure your hair is at its healthiest.
I leave one section free, and hold the other three with a massive hair clip until it’s their turn.
Newly bleached dark hair is usually tinted yellow, and unless you’re into that sort of thing, you should grab some purple shampoo.
Hop in the shower and apply enough to saturate your damp hair, leaving it on for 10-15 minutes.
Apply the toner to damp hair, making sure that your hair is fully saturated.
I used to leave it on for about an hour and a half, and the results were great – my hair was soft, smooth, and shining.
Secure your hair with a giant clip, and wear a shower cap if possible – you don’t want to get olive oil everywhere.
Check your foiled strips of hair every ten minutes to see how they’re doing.
Purple shampoo will only take out yellow tones on hair that is already super light.

You need to use bleach to lift the color from your hair to the desired level of blonde.
If your natural hair is super dark and you want to take it really light blonde then my suggestion is to bleach it first then use the dye as the girl at Sally’s said.
If the lighter parts of your hair reach the color you want and the darker parts are still processing you can wet a wash cloth and wash out the bleach to prevent it from lightening too much or frying your hair.
First, decide how many shades you need to lift your hair to get to your desired color of blonde – this will help determine the developer you need to purchase.
I did it because I have heard its best to strip out the dyed red color before attempting a platinum blonde…. In your opinion, do you suggest I do this? Or could I just try bleaching it as it is? My natural hair color is dark brunette.
Next, throughout my entire existence my hair has been every color of the rainbow, and back to platinum blonde, so I know how to get the results I want fast.
You should wait a couple weeks before you attempt to bleach though, because box color is horrible on your hair.
Kristen, you need to bleach your hair, not use a color.
I want to all over color my hair back a pretty rich auburn and then do blonde highlights.
Taking the ombre into consideration, apply the bleach on the darker parts of your hair first, to give it more time to process than the lighter portions.
A good hint for when you need to get the bleach out before it turns into hair breakage is how it feels- if you keep the bleach from drying out and rub some hair between your finger and thumb and it feels gummy you need to rinse it out immediately- the bleach is basically disintegrating your hair at that point.
Finally, after this many years’ experience I know what not to do, I refined my technique to the point where I can tell you how to get the color you want on the first try without completely frying your hair.
In other words, do not attempt to buy a box of blonde color because it will not turn out like what’s on the package, especially if you’ve colored your hair before.
Depending on what color your hair was to being with it may take a couple times to get it to the platinum color you want.
If you’ve previously dyed or bleached your hair, this will save on some of the damage to the ends- limiting the amount of time exposed to the bleach.
If you had a friend help you apply the bleach to hard to reach parts that may help as well, or wait a little while until your hair grows a bit.
Thanks for this article! I am doing my roots for the first time by myself (I have pastel pink hair), do I still need to tone even though I am putting pink over it? I don’t really remember my hair dresser doing this.
Like I said before, you want to have healthy hair before you go slapping on the bleach.
I’ve been dying my hair for such a long time and for the past year its been a light blonde on top and underneath a dark brown.
You want your hair healthy before you bleach.
Li, I think that you should be fine to go ahead and bleach over the already bleached parts of your hair if it doesn’t feel like straw right now.
If you need to re-bleach after that wait a couple weeks, and be sure to avoid heat, wash your hair as little as possible, and do deep conditioning treatments.
Note the time of application and check hair every 10 minutes until the desired color is acheived.

It’s impossible to make your hair a lighter shade without the help of a bleaching agent – all of which are called ‘oxidizing agents’.
Natalie Carr, Consultant Trichologist at the Philip Kinglsey Clinic, says ‘think of bleached hair as being a bit like a sponge – it’s very porous.
When your cuticle is damaged, your hair’s cortex (core) becomes exposed, which leaves your hair prone to rapid moisture loss.
Very bleached hair often gains a ‘yellow’ tint, because keratin (the protein your hair is made of) is naturally a pale yellow.
This is because the cuticle of bleached hair is weaker and often raised, allowing it to be more easily removed during your day-to-day hair care regime.
Damage from bleach includes dry, brittle, inelastic hair, and hair that is more prone to breakage and split ends.
To help prevent breakage, gently detangle bleached hair when wet (or dry), starting from the ends and gradually working up to your roots.
Bleaching raises your hair cuticle, causing hairs to interlock and tangle easily.
While any and all bleaches have a damaging effect on your hair’s protein structure, the more often you bleach or highlight your hair, the more damaged it will be.
Oxidation decolourizes the pigment in your hair shaft, which is why bleach will turn your hair almost white if it’s left on for too long.
Hair needs to be tinted as well as bleached for the ‘platinum blond’ look.
You’ve probably heard that bleaching and highlighting your hair causes damage.
Although these mixtures don’t contain peroxide, they will contain another oxidizing agent which does the same thing and is just as damaging to your hair.

I also suggest using a dark blue or purple shampoo to help prevent brassy tones.

Wear rubber or plastic Coloring Hair – Tips for Doing it the Least Harmful Way Be very careful you don’t get any bleach on your hands.
Whether you want to be blond, or you have to lighten your hair before dyeing it another color, bleach is a great way to try out a new look.
It is important to use a good conditioner after you bleach, to help your hair recover.
If you feel pain at any point during the bleaching process, wash the bleach out right away to make sure you don’t have a serious reaction.
To minimize hair damage, use a good conditioner for a few weeks before you bleach.
When your time is up, rinse the bleach out and gently shampoo your hair.

After you have finished the rest of your hair, apply the bleach mix to your roots, being careful not to massage it into your scalp too much.
Do not bleach or dye your hair for more than an hour at a time, and always leave a month in between for processing time for your hair and scalp to heal.
So if your roots are dark and the rest of your hair has been bleached before, bleach the roots for 15 or 30 minutes longer than the rest of your hair.
If you under-bleach, and your hair is an orange tone, you must wait a month in order to avoid damage to your hair and skin and then bleach it once more.
If your roots are light or blonde and the rest of your hair is darker, paint the dark bits first.
You can bleach your hair, then mix small amounts of the chemicals later to touch up your roots.
The night before you intend to bleach, soak your hair in coconut oil and leave it in overnight.
You may wish to put more bleach, earlier, on whichever part of your hair is darker.
Make sure you keep up the good care of your hair, since bleaching can be a rough process.
Wash your hair a few days before you intend to bleach.
Repeat the bleaching process after one month for even lighter hair.
Rinse out the bleach when your hair is light enough.

When attempting to lighten hair that has been coloured continuously with artificial dye the bleach must work by oxidizing the pigment within the cuticle and removing it.
For some people the ammount of bleach it will take to remove the pigment from inside the shaft of hair exceeds the amount of bleach it takes to break down the structure of their cuticle.
These products that work by removing artificial pigment are also great because they have a more neutral PH and dont expose your hair to a very acidic product.
If there has been a large amount of artificial pigment placed around and within the hair then the bleach will often destroy the cuticle before it even gets through the entirety of the artificial pigment inside.
You need to want white hair so much that you are willing to spend about $500 on products like this over six months if thats what it takes to do it right.
*Lighten your hair to a bleach white blonde.
the level at which the dye worked (permanent, semi permanent etc) Permanent dyes work by not only coating the hair but opening up the cuticle and depositing new pigment into the hair.
*Make sure you have no artificial pigment in your hair either through the use of products like Affinage eraser or Trimming off the pre existing dye.
When this happens your hair turns to jelly (ever used hair removal cream? your hair will do the same thing!) and you are left with some crappy half eaten baby-shit brown coloured pigment and no hair structure for it to exist inside of.
This product is designed to break down artificial pigment leaving only the natural pigments that you have in your hair.
After this you can either tone to achieve white, or you may lighten to white without toning as I do, because your hair can do it.
I use a 10Vol peroxide on my hair for UP TO 30 minutes (usually only about 15) and it lifts to white.
Are they very thick and robust or fine) Asians tend to have much thicker hair follicles and it will be much harder to lift pigment.
Sometimes you can compromise and realise that yes you can get white hair but its not strong enough to deal with it growing to any decent length.
If you have bleached your hair previously and you are removing dark pigment used later on, your hair might lift to a revolting orange.
* Some people just cant do white hair and it has entirely to do with the anatomy of your hair.
If you cant have white hair compromise and find something else exciting to do.
Theres no use in having white hair if it looks and feels absolutely disgraceful.

REMINDER: Bleach WILL remove color not just from your hair, from any fabric it touches, so be careful.
This is applied after bleaching in order to remove the remaining goldish tint from your hair.
Be sure to read about dyeing and about bleaching before you bleach or dye your hair.
Another note, if you want white, platinum blonde hair – you will need a toner.

Bleaching keeps the pores on your strands wide open, so even when you do get close in color, each attempt at chocolate brown hair will wash down the drain the moment you step into the shower.
Hair responds differently to bleach, but anytime you are open up the pores of your strands to let chemicals oxidize the color that’s in there, you can be sure whatever texture you once had will be no more.
On the flip side, when using purple shampoo, be incredibly careful and make sure it’s completely rinsed out, because that shit stains towels like whoa, and can quickly turn hair lavender blue if any residue is left behind.
5 Things Your Stylist Doesn’t Tell You Before Bleaching Your HairHaving been a hair virgin until recently, here are the five things I learned from sticking my head into a vat of chemicals.
Remember when you forced every last drop of pigment on your head to become completely colorless? Turning that straw mop into human hair within an hour is nothing short of a miracle.
What they don’t tell you? Bleached hair can also become straight, curly, frizzy, or insanely brittle and the texture can continue to change the more you wash it.
Changing your hair color drastically alters your perceived complexion, and you might not match your wardrobe or any of your makeup.

Don’t worry if nature did not give you the light blonde hair of your dreams.
Today’s clever bleaching formulations are gentler than they used to be, yet they can still lighten even very dark hair.

The formulation of permanent dyes is very complicated, and manufacturers go to great lengths to attain long-lasting color that does minimal damage to the strength and elasticity of your hair.
So if you are going to dye, which kind should you choose? To better understand the different types of hair dyes, we had Philip Kingsley’s trichological expert Elizabeth Cuannane Phillips educate us on how they work and how to care for our color-treated hair.
Permanent hair dyes are also known as "oxidation," according to Cuannane Phillips.
The reality of how certain chemicals break down natural hair pigments and lift the hair cuticle was shocking, but we haven’t given up our standing hair color appointment at the salon just yet.
Bleaching raises your hair cuticle, causing hairs to interlock and tangle easily, so it’s also important to condition after every shampoo to flatten the cuticle, seal in moisture, reduce knots and add shine.
It is used as a replacement pH adjuster in hair color and used at lower percentages and coupled with emollient oils, making it less volatile and less damaging than ammonia.
Semi-permanent or temporary hair color gives you a more natural color and is also easier to use.
Very bleached hair often gains a yellow tint, because keratin (the protein your hair is made of) is naturally a pale yellow," says Cuannane Phillips.
Ammonia-free hair dyes are composed of monoethanolamine (MEA), an organic chemical compound that is a primary amine and primary alcohol.

Hair colour turns lighter mostly through depigmentation (bleaching) rather than through colouration.

Dark hair is quick to turn brassy when exposed to many lighteners, even just the sun, which is why a cinnamon mask is kind of a revelation—it lifts and subtly lightens dark hair without brassiness or orange tones.
Make a paste out of cinnamon and a small amount of water and work it into your hair, being sure to coat each strand from top to bottom.
Honey is, of course, super sticky and a pain to wash out of anything, let alone hair, so it’s wise to mix it with a bit of water or vinegar to make both application and removal a little easier.
Spritz it all over hair and get comfortable in the sun, reapplying the concoction every half hour to keep the lightening ingredients potent.
Perhaps the most popular DIY lightening ingredient, lemon juice is full of citric acids that lift color and create subtle, sunny highlights.
And because chamomile is so gentle on hair, you can even use it to lighten salon highlights without concerns of brassiness.
Honey is the perfect lightening ingredient, because it contains a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, but it’s also deeply moisturizing to counteract the drying effects of lightening.
Chamomile’s natural golden hue, as well as its chemical makeup, work to enhance the blonde undertones in hair.

I have very dark almost black hair, and flash lightning took it to a nice light blonde color in record time! The only problem I have with the kit is that there wasn’t enough stuff in it for my whole head, and I had to go out and buy another kit.
I picked up this product to bleach the bottom half of my hair a light blonde.
This kit is a must before applying Manic Panic semi-permanent colors, but it’s also just a great hair bleach.
Considering my time was limited, I didnt leave the bleach in as long as recommended for my hair color.
For the ulitimate dramatic color results when you dye your hair, you have to bleach your hair first.

For the first time ever my hair did not feel like straw when I rinsed out the bleach.
My hair is super dark and a little thick and I was able to get it to a light blonde.
Like so many other gals, I’ve tried every hair product on the market.
After not even 30 minutes my hair was light enough to where I could rinse out the bleach.
Even still, within minutes of application, I could see my hair lightening up, and after washing it out & drying, my hair was super blonde, with only a little orange (because of the original red).
I bleached my hair alone for the first time using this and it came out great.
My hair never got blond no matter how long I left each and every product on.

She’s part of the reason why hair tapestry has been blowing up, and she travels the world with One Direction as the boys’ resident hairstylist.
LT: I used this [Fudge Urban Iced Raspberry and Vanilla hair spray ($8)] for some wedding hair recently because it’s really good for brushing out.
That’s one of my favorites at the moment.And you know how we were talking about the Kardashians? They do that really nice thing where they have their hair all straightened out, then they gel the top, put a part in it and brush it behind their ears.
The London-based stylist, author, and Fudge Urban ambassador made her way to Los Angeles during One Direction’s Where We Are tour, where we were able to chat all about hair, from weaves to hair wax.
If you use the hair spray before you tong, you can brush it out, and it just gets really nice and soft.
Also, what I started doing is highlighting the bulk of my hair and just bleaching my part, to try to get my hair to grow.
When you’re blond, your hair is dryer anyway, but the salt spray is great if your hair is a bit limp.
At this point, our conversation turned to weddings – being a perpetual bridesmaid (me) and getting hit up to do everyone’s hair and makeup (Lou).

There is no established time for leaving bleach on your hair – everyone is different and the bleaching time depends on the natural colour and texture of your hair, the dyed colour and which products have been used on the hair etc – always do a strand test to check developing time for your hair type and use that as a guideline i.e. if the strand test took 20 minutes to reach the desired colour on your hair then allow for 20 minutes bleaching time on your actual head – from FIRST bleach applied to hair NOT from when roots are done – this is why it is important to work fast and have another person help you! Always check bleach results regularly as you may find the heat from your head will cause the bleach to work faster and you may only need 15 minutes bleaching instead of the 20 required on the strand test.
If you have a light base colour from using 40, 30 or 20 volume bleach you would not normally need to use a 10 volume bleach to open the hair and the less bleaching you can do the better for your hair.
You may want to try a purple/white toner if your hair merely has yellow tones to it , however if you really feel the need to bleach again use as low volume developer as you can and leave at least a week between bleaching.

Make a small part in the hair, spread the bleach on it in both directions like so, and then make another part directly behind the one you just made (in this photo I am lifting the hair up to do that.) Imagine it is the page of a book — you are turning the page and the two ‘already bleached’ pages will now be touching, and you have a fresh section to work with.
If you missed a few spots (it takes a while to get the hang of applying it evenly) just wait a day or two, mix up a lil’ batch of bleach and touch up the weird bits, you’ll only need to leave the bleach on for 15 minutes probably… rinse, condition, and tone again and you should be fine.
Disclaimer time: If you want to go entirely platinum and if your hair is anything other than medium-to-light and relatively short, thick, and healthy — so, if your hair is very very dark, heavily processed, very fine and prone to breakage, very thick and curly, already 4 different colours, permed, otherwise damaged, very long, etc — you should suck it up and go to a salon.
You’ll notice that the streak is a brassy copper — which, unless you want your whole head to be that colour, is why if you want to go really light on already-darkened hair, you should suck it up and pay for it.
Alternately, sometimes I’ve used a foil-lined cap or some heat to speed up the process, but you probably shouldn’t do this until you’ve seen how your hair and head react to bleach.
If your hair is already bleached and you are filling in roots, avoid getting too much bleach on the already-dyed sections as it will damage it.
Quick disclaimer again: this is what exactly the same level and time of bleach did on my hair, which while naturally very blonde is a.) long and b.) has been dyed near-black about four times on the ends here.
I usually start at the crown of the head and work down through the sides, front, and back, and as the hair starts to lift (fancy hair terms for “lighten”) go back over and add more to the spots that I’ve missed.
But if your hair is relatively short, healthy, does not have a lot of colour on it now — go for it, you can probably do it yourself instead of throwing down the $200+ it will cost to get double-process ice blonde at a salon.
Get yourself all set up: Put on some gross clothes you don’t mind getting bleach on, put a towel around the neck of your victim, put your gloves on, clear off a space on a table (put some paper down if you’re prone to being messy) and lay out all your materials….
Slap on another pair of gloves, slather a ton of the nice lavender goo all over their hair but not on the roots just yet, and then comb it through to the roots and ends for a while with a wide-tooth comb until it also turns into kind of a weird mousse texture.

Results will differ for each person depending on what hair color you are starting off with, but if done correctly, you will achieve the color you are looking for! Have any hair bleaching tips you’d like to share with us? Leave them in the comments below.
After each section of hair is complete, go back and apply the rest of the bleach to the roots, making sure that everything is evenly distributed throughout the hair.
CAUTION! Before bleaching any type of hair, you should always make sure to bleach on healthy, strong hair.
This can vary – for example, if you have short to medium length hair, use about 1-2 scoops of bleaching powder and 3 tablespoons of developer per scoop of powder.
However, if you like the lightness of your hair and don’t want to go lighter, but it’s tone is orange, you will need to put in a semi/demi permanent hair color one shade lighter than the color you’ve come out with.
If part of your hair is the lightness you want but the other half isn’t, rinse that section only, and allow the other section to finish lightning.
White blonde hair is a huge trend right now (case in point – these celebs), and bleaching your hair can be a fun and exciting experience.
Here at Couturesque, after continuous research and insight from the professionals, we’ve decided to put together a basic guide to help you bleach your hair at home.
It’s also best to work on unwashed hair since your natural oils are there to help protect it before bleaching.
After you’ve created the mix, take the section of hair that has not been clipped away and make another section no bigger than a 1/4 inch thick.
Bleaching will weaken and dry out the hair, so you really want a strong foundation.
If your hair is orange, you need to bleach again.
If you choose a color the same shade as your bleached hair, it will actually make your hair darker since you would be layering the same shade.
A: If you can’t avoid straightening your hair that often, try washing it less – say, every 2-3 days – to keep it straight longer, and to prevent losing more moisture from product damage.

Bleach takes color out of your hair so if your hair is black or brown, it’ll turn a strawberry blonde or light brown, depending on the amount of time the bleach is left on you…r head.
Take caution if dying your hair after bleaching as you hair may be damaged already from the bleaching process and hair may be brittle; apply conditioner before applying any other permanent color.Also note that if after bleaching your hair and you do not like the color, be very careful of trying to dye it a darker shade, it may turn out gray or green.
well first off your chemicals your putting in your hair are pretty serious so be careful, second, bleaching your hair is opening the shafts of your hair follicle’s and is basi…cally killing its color which turns it to a faint yellow depending on the melanin or keratin in your hair.
Putting bleach, or peroxide, in your hair, will cause it to become a lighter shade of whatever color it already is.
DON’T do it.Household bleach is meant to clean and disinfect things, not change the color of your hair.
the hole reaction of it is H2O2=>H2O+O2________________Applying bleach to the hair will lighten the existing color.
You would also inhale far more of the fumes than what is safe, and could cause serious harm to your lungs, as well as other health problems.And contrary to what some believe, it won’t bleach your hair in the way they believe it will anyway.
Stripping the color out of your hair is not a d.i.y. project that you do with products you have around your house, but if your looking for a cheaper alternative than going to a salon, you can go to a beauty supply store like Sally’s, where you don’t need a license to purchase products.
A bit more:Using household bleach on your hair can have serious consequences, includ…ing death.
