Bleach reacts with Developer tocreate oxidation and cause hair tolighten. Without the correct strengthor amount of developer, oxidation

will not properly occur.

-Use a stronger developersuch as 30 or 40 volume.

-Carefully read theinstructions and mixing ratio

on bleach pack beforeproceeding.

make bleaching easier.

chemicals. Freshly washed hair willbe missing this barrier.

Bleaching is a harsh process thatstrips away nutrients and moisturefrom hair. Loss of hair's structuralintegrity leads to a fragile and

exposed hair cuticle that clings towater in an attempt to regain lostmoisture. The hair will become

overhydrated and develop a gummytexture.

-Wash hair as little aspossible with gentle, sulfate-

free shampoo.

-Use nourishing products that help safely regain hydration.

Bleach takes time to properly takeeffect, rinsing it off too early mayleave behind the hair's natural

yellow undertones.

Weaker bleaching products may notcompletely remove color even if left for

the appropriate amount of time.

-Carefully read instructions onbleach pack and allow productto sit on hair for the correct

amount of time.

-Research hair productsbefore purchasing andlearn which is right for

your hair type.
