Before we begin bleaching our hair, we need to make sure that all our material is in place. Get the bleach (most important for obvious reasons so make sure its from a good brand), the mixing bowl and brush, the developer, the sectioning clips for your hair and also gloves. You can add ThriveCo Color Buddy to your list. The mix can be used with bleach during application for damage reversal, and the fix - leave in serum can be used for smoother, frizz free hair after the process. Put on some music that suits you as well because what is hair coloring after all, just a bunch load of fun. After that you need to test those strands i.e your hair. Choose any small section of your hair and perform the strand test as instructed on the packaging of the bleach. Don’t wash your hair immediately before bleaching. The natural oils of your scalp act as somewhat of a barrier and reduce the damage of bleach. Also, shield your skin by putting some moisturizer. “Highlights hair color” is the mission… not the skin with damage via bleach! Now what you need to do is mix the bleach and the developer and everything in the correct volume.

"I have been coloring my hair since I was 17 , its pretty damaged. My hair stylist told me not to use color anymore. However Color Buddy was a game changer."

Make sure you don’t overdo anything. Negligible errors can of course be overlooked but Then you need to divide your hair, apply the bleach, monitor the process, rinse and shine… then shampoo and finally condition and aftercare for your lovely hair.

The dark magic of bleach is sure to corrupt your scalp if left on for a long time. The standard time would be around thirty to forty five minutes but not more than that as it can seriously damage your hair. So make sure you stick to the time limit and if not, save up some money for a hair transplant.

It is a must do that you section your hair. So that the color you apply on your hair is exactly at the spots you want it to be. You can choose to apply it in the form of highlights, color your hair entirely, create ombres or however you fancy!

2. Use A Brush/Hand

A brush is something people use a lot more commonly. Now, the balayage style (the one where we use hands to color) is something that is French based, but us Indians are also known to use hands and make something extremely beautiful out of it! So go and rock the balayage, if at all that's your choice. 

3. Rinse And Dry!

Now that the color is on your hair, leave it be for a few minutes and chill. You can watch your show, ponder about life but make sure not to rest your head somewhere because the marks that’ll be left behind on the surface will leave a colorful look, but your family’s reaction will be colorful as well, so watch out… After that rinse off your hair and dry it out to have a happy and new you!
