There are several key features of dark hair that you should be aware of before you lighten it. First, it takes longer to lighten dark hair than it does to lighten blond hair. This is because the pigment in dark hair is more resistant to change. This means that you will need patience when lightening your hair, and you may get frustrated with the process. But the main thing here is to have patience and find a good master in the salon for the procedure.

Stages of dark hair bleaching

Preparing for lightening

If you have dark hair, you need to do some prep work before bleaching. This will help make sure that your hair will withstand the intense coloring process and come out healthy on the other side. First, schedule a haircut. Getting rid of split ends will help minimize damage during bleaching. It is also very important to avoid using toner and henna for two weeks before bleaching. It is important not to wash your hair for three days before bleaching.

If you have dry hair, you may need to reapply the lightening powder. This process can also be repeated if your hair is very thick and the first step is not fully worked out.

During bleaching, the master can apply a nourishing oil to the scalp to help soothe the skin during the procedure. This oil contains vitamins and active moisturizers. They will help protect the scalp from the aggressive effects of the bleaching powder.

The next step is to apply paint. The mister chooses the dye depending on the degree of lightening of your hair. He can mix several shades at once, adding green and yellow neutralizers. The dye differs in resistance and degree of impact on the hair.

After the hair is dyed, the master will thoroughly rinse it with water and shampoo. After that, he applies a final tint to equalize the color and make it more saturated. The composition for the final tinting includes toners, caring components, and mineral pigments. The use of this tool allows you to give your hair extra shine.
