Fall is all about rich, warm colors. So, for October’s Style of the Month, we bleached and colored our new Simply Perfect 7 hair (Color: Natural Brown) to a vibrant burgundy color. Isn’t it pretty?
Follow our step-by-step guide on how to bleach and dye non-processed human hair weaves to any color you desire.
What you will need:
• Bleaching Powder
• Developer V20 or V30
• Hair Dye Product
• Mixing Bowl
• Foil Sheet
• Simply Perfect 7 Natural Body (18”/18”/20”/20”/22”/22”)
Lightly spray hair with clean water. This helps open up the cuticle to speed up the process.
Add 2 scoops of bleach powder and 20V or 30V crème developer together (50:50 ratio) and mix them together completely.
*For higher lift and a faster process, you may use 40V developer. However, please watch carefully as it may cause more damage to the hair cuticles.
Using an application brush, start to apply the mix on the Simply Perfect 7 Natural Body hair. Make sure that the mix is well and evenly saturated. Wrap the applied area well with foil and time it for 15 minutes.
*Make sure to use the hairdressing foil.
*Be sure to check the hair every 5 minutes to see how much the hair is lifting, as the time of processing may vary depending on the products and hair you use.
Shampoo thoroughly in lukewarm or cool water making sure all the chemical residue is washed out.
*Do not use a hydrating shampoo or conditioner during this wash because these products will close the hair cuticles and make it difficult for the hair to absorb the dye color.
Apply hair dye products 1” above the bleached area. It will create a natural transition between the original hair color and the bleached area. Let the hair dye color process for 30 minutes. Then, shampoo in lukewarm or cool water, and apply a deep conditioning treatment for at least 15 minutes and rinse well.
* Slightly scrunch the hair to keep the curl pattern. And then, lay the hair on the towel to air dry completely. Do not hang the wet hair to dry because that can stretch out the curl pattern.
