How to take care of your hair after bleaching and colouring


While bleaching your hair, its structure goes through a significant change so you must use products that restore its PH.


Bleaching powder is alkaline. Due to this chemical property the cuticle (outermost layer of hair) of hair expands and the bleaching powder penetrates.

After having used alkaline products you must stop the expanding effect by applying acid products (neutralizing) otherwise you hair will get damaged.

There should be more acid bits remaining in your hair which contract hairs and restore hair structure to the original condition.

How to important to do skin test

How to important to do skin test

It is worth doing skin test 24 hours prior to hair dye or colour especially if you are buying a
new hair dye brand.

Mix a little hair dye and developer and apply behind your ear. If it doesn’t get red or inflamed within 24 hours you can dye your hair with it.

If you experience any symptoms, you are allergic to the hair dye and you mustn’t use it.

There are more and more antiallergenic, ammonia-free and fragrance-free hair dyes so you
should try these.

Make sure that you are not allergic before you apply!

It is more likely to get allergic reaction if you have diabetes or lactase deficiency.

I do advise you not to skip this step!

Hair colour spectrum in hairdressing

Colour theory is basically the colour spectrum.
There are terms that we don’t use in everyday life.

E.g.: for green – matt
         for blue – ash
         for violet - pearl

Hair colour spectrum in hairdressing

While bleaching, there might remain yellow (gold), orange (copper) and red shades in the hair. You can neutralize it by applying the directly opposite colour.

For example you can neutralize yellow (gold) shade by violet (pearl).
Orange (copper) can be neutralized by blue and red by green (matt).

The condition of your hair

 The condition of your hair

I will provide you with a detailed description about the condition of your hair, but our first video is about how to bleach and achieve pastel hair at home.

Have you ever thought that hairdressers consider bleached hair damaged?

While bleaching, your hair tends to suck up more bleach so this can alter the colour of pastel; it might make it darker or greyer. 

You can avoid this if you increase the proportion of mixing by adding mixton. Your hair will never be greyish if you listen to me and follow closely what I do on the video.

Next time I will talk about the colour wheel. It won’t be so easy but I will do my best to explain it clear.

How to recognise the quality of your hair at home

How to recognise the quality of your hair at home

It is important to know the quality of your hair when it comes to picking bleaching powder and developer (volume).

It isn’t so difficult to decide because you can recognise it by touching your hair or you can also measure your hair thickness by laser.

The quality of hair can be:

-thin: 0,03-0,04 mm
-normal: 0,05-0,07 mm
-thick: over 0,08 mm

If you have thin hair I would recommend you to use bleaching cream because it’s gentler.

If you have thick hair you would need a longer length of action time.

Hair color

As I have promised you, our first video is about how to bleach and achieve pastel hair, but before you bleach your hair at home (lightening up, neutralizing) you need to be able to recognize:

1, your natural hair color (roots)
2, the quality of your hair
3, your hair condition

Without this information you may cause a lot of damage to your hair.

I will try to explain it in the simplest and most understandable way so you can grab the essence.

How to determine your natural hair color (roots)

Your hair color depth can be best described by the lightness of hair, which depends on the number of pigments in your hair. Black has the most and the darkest pigments but very rare. There are hair colors from dark brown to the lightest blonde. The lighter the hair is the less pigments it contains.
