when bleaching the hair the only answer is "WHITE"
Lighteners / Decolorizing
Lighteners are the chemical compounds that lighten hair by decolorizing the natural hair pigment. Just like color in the tubes. As soon as the lightener formula (powder or liquid) is mixed with the hydrogen peroxide, it begins to release oxygen. This process is known as oxidation, occurs within the cortex of the hair shaft.
Hair lighteners are used to create a blonde shade that is not achievable with permanent hair color , and are called BLEACH.
The lightest color one can achieve using hair color is with the type of color called HIGH LIFT BLONDING. Every line has their own version of HIGH LIFT blonde tones that ‘claim' to lift 4-5 Levels by using this tube of color plus a double dose of 40 Volume Developer.
THE DECOLORIZING PROCESS
· how much pigment the hair has
· the strength of the lightening product
· the length of time it was processed
During the process of decolorizing ( Bleaching), natural hair can go through as many as 10 stages FIGURE 16-20. The most common problem? would be when you see yellow hair..which would mean what? Check the stages....
The hair is never safely lifted past the ‘pale yellow stage’ to ‘white’ with lightener. Going that light with bleach even oil bleach causes excessive damage to the hair strands. One must be a seasoned hair colorist when going into the light blond range....we know how far we can go and be safe...and its nothing you can really 'teach'...... its simply experience!
It kicked ass
