Bleach the Color of your Hair

How do you remove the color from your hair?

Here are some useful info on removing colour from hair.
Please note bleach bathing might seem the easier option, but as with any lightening process it is still damaging to the hair’s cuticle, so please exercise caution, and don’t over do it as the author of this article did!
You’ll need:-
20/30vol bleach (unmixed)
Shampoo (preferably clarifying so you can gauge the strength of the bleach better)
Good conditioner
Time telling device
Step – by - step
Pour into a mixing bowl the normal amount of shampoo you would use to wash your hair.
Mix up the bleach as normal, try and make approximately HALF of the amount of the shampoo you’ll be adding it to.
Mix together thoroughly, the shampoo (if a clear clarifying one) should be a sky blue colour from the bleach.
Quickly apply to semi wet hair. I usually run mine under the shower and give it a towel rub. So it’s wet but not dripping.
Starting at the ends like bleach apply the mixture, work your way up your hair then give the whole lot a good rub, like shampooing your hair. Spray on some water to get it bubbling.
You can now wrap your head in plastic OR leave it loose depending on how severe you want the colour removal to be.
Scrape off a bit of the bleach every few minutes to watch the lightening.
Wash off when desired colour achieved.
