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 😉
