Hi. I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about bleaching your hair. Just make sure that when you bleach your hair, you don't just get a box off the shelf. You're really going to want to go to a beauty supply and pick up a powder lightener. Now a powder lightener is going to come in a tub. They come in all different colors, white or blue. I'll show you what the blue looks like. The blue is this. It's just simply a powder. And you're going to mix your developer with that. Now this comes in to a creamy consistency because this thing is going to depend on you and on what you're doing. If you're pulling it through the cap, you're going to probably want the consistency of toothpaste. If you are to be baliasing, you're going to want the consistency of whipped cream. So just make sure that when bleaching your hair, you figure out what color you want to do. Bleach is the one thing that will get you past these red stages in to the blond stages. So if you're nice and dark like this model here; you see how she's fairly dark there and she's got some really dark pieces going through her hair, the lightener will actually take you through all of these stages. So lightener is the only way to go if you have color on your hair or if you're dark and you're wanting to go light. If you're only going a level or two lighter, like you're really light blond and you just want to go to a lighter blond, then you can use a color. Now if you already have bleached highlights on your hair, you can not put color over them because then they'll just get colored. It won't be any lighter. So bleach only lighten, the only thing that lightens bleach highlights or color is bleach. So go to your beauty supply, pick up some bleach and developer and you can get your hair blond.
