Check your situation If your hair feels brittle or gummy, it is not safe to bleach.
Gather your materials You're going to need a few items in your tool kit before you begin.
Developer (30v and 20v), Lightener (usually in a powder form), Purple Shampoo, Toner, Plastic bag/shower cap, Bleach, Mixing Bowl, Gloves, Brush
Prep your hair! Kandasamy recommends sectioning your hair in four parts and rubbing coconut oil from the root to tip within sectioned hair to hydrate hair.
Mixing the product After all the necessary materials and prep have been done, mix together 2 oz of a 30v developer and 1 oz of lightener in a mixing bowl using a painting brush until smooth.
Application (no turning back now!) To avoid hot roots, apply bleach with 30 volumes to mid-length and ends about two inches away from the scalp, and 20 volumes on the roots.
Now you wait The length of time the bleach mixture should stay on your hair depends on the hair level you are starting with and the color you want to achieve.
Once you figure out your hair level, leave the mixture on for 35-40 minutes, and check your hair to see if it's lifted to the level you desire.
When it's fully processed, it's time to wash it out.
Assess and Bleach Again (If Needed) Make sure you give your hair enough recovery time and consider waiting a couple of days before doing another bleach treatment.
Time To Tone Make sure that your hair is light enough before you use toner, or you could create a very unpleasant color.
Toner can be applied to slightly damp hair and uses the same 2 -1 mixing ratio and application method as the bleach. Use gloves and apply the mixture to sectioned hair and let it sit for 20-25 minutes.
The purple shampoo helps eliminate orange or yellow hues in your hair. Use it once or week.
After bleaching your hair, use a professional haircare product and avoid using heat on your hair for 3-4 weeks.
