this week, we are with veronica and she is going to show us how to do a bleach cocktail to bring the color of our client melinda’s hair one shade lighter.
right now, melinda’s hair is a level 4, but she wants to go about a shade lighter and bring the color up to about a 5. she doesn’t want to do an entire bleaching process, and its not necessary since we are only lightening the hair one level, but we do need to use some sort of bleach process to pull out some of the pigment of the hair, because it has been previously color treated.
note: using an artificial color remover is also a possible approach, however, it is less controllable of a process so it likely would pull out more pigment than necessary.
after we remove some of the color we will be ready to apply the level 5, and it is going to look amazing
we want to apply all of the bleach cocktail as we would with any shampoo, making sure to fully coat all of the hair and evenly distribute our product throughout the strands.
we really want to emulsify the hair and work the product into the cuticle to lift the pigment. this is a very visual process in terms of how long we want to process the hair. when we have reached the desired shade, we want to wash the hair to rinse all of that pigment out.
here you can see the pigment has been pulled out, so we have a pretty raw looking color, but this is exactly where we want it to be. right now her hair is at a level 5, so what we want to do now is apply the color over top of our lightened hair
voila. here you can see melinda’s lovely new color, a very charming level 5 brunette. this is a great method to use when a client only wants to go about 1 shade lighter.
