So last week I thought I’d try something different with my hair (originally like this) ….
So I opted for the Smart Beauty pastel blue and bleach hair dye duo kit to jazz my hair up a little – its semi permanent! 👌
So with these kits you start with the bleach dye to lighten the hair to set your base for popping on the semi-permanent blue colour. (Please note that the bleach is permanent for any novices out there)
Inside your bleaching kit you will find;
– one time lightening / bleach powder
– two times development cream sachets
– a pair of gloves
– instructions for use
You will need;
– a hairdye application brush (not necessity but easier)
– a non metallic mixing bowl for the dye
So firstly you take both development creams and your bleaching powder and empty all three contents into your mixing bowl and mix to form a paste / liquid.
Now once all mixed to a smooth and even consistency pop on your gloves provided and take your dye brush.
And in any motion you want apply the bleach all over the hair – I like to start with the roots and hairline to ensure all is covered. Do this until the whole hair is covered.
Once covered you can leave to develop as per your Strand test usually anywhere after 30 minutes but not exceeding 1 hour. I left mine of for 30 minutes as I could see the color had lightened.
Once left for your personal development time – you can rinse the hair until all the dye is washed out. At this point I suggest not
shampooing or conditioning the hair but just ensure all dye has washed out.
Once you’ve washed you can dry the hair as normal to reveal some thing like the above. Please note colour will vary depending on your original colour – it may be lighter / darker depending on how porous the hair is, this is why a strand test is essential in advance.
When hair is dryer and as normal you can now take your Pastel blue semi permanent hair dye and empty the contents.
In this you will find;
– a pair of gloves
– a tube of colourant
At this stage you will need to also get a new mixing bowl and brush or wash out the one you’ve used previously to use for the next section.
Simply take the tube colourant and squeeze out into the mixing bowl you have ready. (It will come out like a toothpaste consistency).
Again take your fresh pair of gloves and start to apply as before with a brush if easier until the whole head is complete.
You will end up with an aqua blue / green application all over the hair.
As before you leave this to develop for your own personal development time as per your strand test – mine was approximately 40 minutes.
After the appropriate time has elapsed you can now rinse the hair until the majority of water has run clear in colour. This time you may condition your hair if you wish – I recommend this.
Once conditioned, dried and styled you will be left with this lovely pastel blue colour! I absolutely love it 👍👌
A pale baby blue color that has incorporated itself into my original blonde highlights. And my hair feels in great condition too! The blue colour is semi permanent so will wash out within time depending on the frequency you wash and how porous the hair is too 🙂
