Last updated Sep 27, 2023

In our previous article:Bleach Bath Hair: What You Need to Know , we have given you details about hair bleaching bath, today we will teach you how to do bleaching bath at home.

How to bleach your bath hair?

You need to prepare these tools

● Gloves

● Plastic bowl

● Tinted brush

● Wide tooth comb

● Old towel and cloth

● Clarifying shampoo

● Hair clips or claw clips

● Shower cap or cling film

● Developer of your choice

● Bleaching powder or bleaching cream

You have all these tools ready to go, below we will move on to the preparation.

1. Perform an allergy or patch test.

Perform an allergy or patch test.

If this is your first time using a bleach bath, it is important to perform this step to avoid any adverse reactions. Dip a cotton ball into the developer and bleach, then pat it on your hand. If your skin turns red or starts to itch, you are probably allergic to the bleach. However, if you are not sure, wait 48 hours and check for any further changes. If there is no reaction, you can continue with the procedure.

2. Wash your hair with a purifying shampoo

This will remove any excess product that interferes with the chemical composition of the hair dye color molecules in the bleaching solution and thus hinders the bleaching process.

3. Keep your hair moist.

Do not apply the bleach mixture to dry hair; it needs to be applied to wet strands. It's called a bleach wash after all! If you have long hair, divide it into sections and secure them with pins or claw clips. Use claw clips to hold the top section of hair to be bleached, then remove the clips from the middle length and ends - set them aside.

4.Apply Vaseline

Apply Vaseline

Apply petroleum jelly to your ears, nose and eyebrows. Bleach can burn your skin, so Vaseline acts as a shield to protect your sensitive skin!

5. Wear old clothes and protective gloves.

Bleach can stain your clothes, so it's best to wear something you don't mind getting dirty. Apply petroleum jelly to clothes where bleach will drip (collars, cuffs, etc.) to prevent staining.

6. Open the window

Gases from inhaling bleach can be toxic, so it's best to get fresh air in the room.

Step 1Mix the bleach and developer solution.

First mix the bleach and developer in a 1:2 ratio. The volume of developer indicates the amount of peroxide in it; the larger the volume, the greater the amount of peroxide. Add up to 50 ml depending on the length of your hair. If you are not sure which one will work best, we recommend that you use 10 ml of developer for the first time.

The higher these levels are, the stronger they become, which means more peroxide in them! If you have very dark hair, you will need more than 20 ml of developer. Use a mixing bowl and a blending brush to mix the bleach and developer together. This will also help you apply the bleach mixture to your wet hair.

Step 2Add the shampoo to the mixture.

Next, add twice as much shampoo to the bleach and developer mixture. Give it a good stir to mix the ingredients together, and you're ready for your bleach bath below!

Step 3Apply to wet hair.

In our preparation, you have washed and towel dried your hair to remove excess moisture. Taking a section of hair at a time, use a coloring brush and a wide-tooth comb to apply the mixture from the bottom of your wet hair upwards.

Make sure to start each strand at the root tip and massage it into your hair as you would when shampooing as you apply it to the roots. Repeat this process until your entire head is covered.

Step 4Wait for results.

Pin your hair up to prevent it from dripping or leaving any marks while you wait. You can also tuck it into a shower cap or cling wrap. Do not let the bleach stay on your hair for too long; the following is a reference guide for dwell time:

♥ For hair that is already very light Leave on for 7 - 10 minutes.

♥ To remove dark permanent hair dye color 10-15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes.

♥ If your hair is black and you are using a 30-40 strength developer, this will work quickly! Do not let it take longer than 7-10 minutes to process on black hair.

Step 5Rinse thoroughly

When your hair has achieved the results you want, rinse the bleach bath hair with warm water. Use some deep conditioning to help your hair begin to repair from the bleaching process.

After washing the bleach, you may need to condition your light colored hair, as natural hair contains orange or yellow tones. You can repeat this process and bleach your hair again to lighten it, but be careful not to damage it.

Alternatively, you can dye the top of your head with another color for the most wonderful results. This will give you a good base for other color hair dyes.

How do I care for my hair after a bleach bath?

1. Condition your hair after each wash and deep condition every two weeks to replenish moisture.

2. To avoid heat damage, put a heat protection spray or serum on your hair before using any heat styling products.

3. For a few days after the bleaching process, avoid using straighteners, blow dryers, and curling irons because newly bleached hair is more prone to damage.

4. Using leave-in conditioners, serums, and hair treatments on a regular basis can keep hair from drying out.

The Final Takeaway

If you've changed your mind about your previous hair color, a bleaching bath might help you lighten up your look without having to wait months for the dye to fade or grow out. Washing your hair with bleach to remove color is a simple and inexpensive technique to transform your appearance. It may sound daunting, but it's actually not too difficult.
