Peroxide and Baking Soda Results!

So I went ahead and bleached the ends of my hair and it came out super neat 🙂

So like I mentioned in the last post, I used 3% peroxide and some baking soda I had in my bathroom. I mixed each until it made a paste and applied it to my hair and left on for like 30 minutes. I was making it hard on myself and was lighting them in groups of one to three since I had my hair detangled and in two strand twists already.

After I had washed the mixture out my hair felt HELLA dry so I did a hot oil treatment overnight with some coconut oil before washing it again the next day. I didn’t want to use direct heat right after bleaching so I waited a week and wore my hair in a bun and kept it extremely moisturized till I thought it was ready/well enough to flat iron.

So as y’all can see I didn’t go crazy with the bleaching, I just wanted a subtle gradation and that’s what I got 🙂 but like remember i mentioned in my last post, I said wanted to do a henna treatment after I lightened to get a red color…

well my henna came the other day and now I don’t want to because I like the color it changed to :/

Ahhhh idk what to do

😦

I would love to hear what you guys think in the comments below 😉

  1. It looks like a natural shade of brown and you wear it very well. Just add the henna should you get bored of the brown. You know we get bored sooner or later even with a look we love! *LOL* Thanks for posting this. I never really saw how peroxide does what it does. Your pictures on the test hair really explained it well.
