BBlonde Medium Blonding Kit Review

bblonde medium lift blonding kit* 

It’s been seven weeks since I went from my natural dark blonde to now very light, almost white and my roots had grown a fair amount, I was going to leave it a little longer but then was contacted by the guys over at BBlonde.

They asked whether I wanted to try out any of their products and I thought perfect timing. I chose the Medium Blonding Kit as I thought it’d be the perfect potency of bleach for my dark blonde roots, this one lightens up to 6-7 shades which was perfection.

The kit comes with everything you need to do the job, gloves, a mixing bowl, applicator brush, hair cover, of course instructions and the actual powder bleach, developer and even a sachet of shampoo. I decided not to use their mixing bowl and applicator because I have my own which is bigger. I did ask G to help me but decided if something goes wrong I’d rather have just me to blame so proceeded to touch up my roots alone. As you can see above my roots have grown a substantial amount, I don’t know why I was so surprised at how quickly they did because my hair does grow rather fast regardless of what I do to it.

Now I always have a terrible time mixing bleach, I freak out and try to mix it too quickly and not carefully which in the past has left lumps of product on my head. But I took my time and mixed the powder and bleach well. My method was simple, I separated my clean hair into four sections and began applying the bleach from the back of my head forwards. It took me about 30 minutes to do my entire head, I was watching Armageddon at the time so I can’t be 100% certain, which is also true for the developing time. I reckon I left it on for about 20 minutes which would be my usual time for developing anyway as I am fair.

I rinsed the bleach from my hair and used the shampoo that came in the box. The conditioning shampoo they give you is a little miracle, so always use it as it adds the softness back into your hair and stops any parts you may have missed when rinsing from developing further. I rinsed this off and then popped a little of the Bleach London silver conditioner on to give me even more softness. I left that on for 5 minutes and rinsed once again.

I then blow dried it and checked how it had turned out, my roots were certainly bright, I’d become a bit of a patchy mess everywhere else though. But it was nothing a good purple shampoo can’t fix, I slathered on Fudge’s clean blonde shampoo onto my dry hair and let it work it’s magic for an hour. And don’t I look so amazing with my hair purple, haha, Rose loves me with purple hair, G not so much.

Now I don’t recommend washing your hair this many times after a bleaching, in fact you shouldn’t at all but I can not bear to yellow/brassy tones so I mistreat it. I didn’t immediately dry my hair after as it felt disgustingly dry, I decided to leave it up in my towel for 5 minutes and then covered my hair with Aussie’s 3 minute miracle. And that I left on all night. In the morning I gave it a rinse and my god it felt incredible and it also looked pretty incredible too. Gone were all the brassy and yellow tones and even though I had brighter roots then mid sections I honestly don’t mind.

In hindsight I would have bleach the rest of my head and not just my roots but I really like how it turned out. The BBlonde Medium Bleach Kit did an amazing job on my roots and my hair feels fantastic and the colour is so good for such a short developing time.

If you are wanting to bleach your hair at home I couldn’t recommend Jerome Russell’s BBlonde range more and right now they have some incredible toners available, one of which I will be trying out very soon so keep your eyes peeled for that. Have you ever tried the BBlonde range?

    oh wow well done, it looks fantastic. I don't think I would be brave enough to colour my hair like this at home. Some things I prefer to leave to the professionals, though I might reconsider seeing how well yours turned out.

    This product looks amazing! I agree, a little brassy at first but the finish is absolutely beautiful and so natural.

    I have naturally blonde hair, but even mine gets brassy. I swear by purple shampoo too. Love how your hair has come out 🙂

    So that is how it is done. I had considered coloring my hair but have not gotten around to doing so. I have a lot of white hair and thought dark brown would work for me.

    I use to highlight my hair myself at home aswell . You have done a great job here , explaining everything very clear and well ! Did you know that rinsing your hair after with camomille (tea will do) keeps the nice shiny blond longer ? Beer aswell , I have tried all this myself , saves you a lot of money ! Thanks for sharing this !

    I once had a crazy dream of being a rockstar and coloring my hair blonde. Haha. But it sure won't look good on me. Anyway, I didn't really know that hair dyeing has an art to it. I thought you just put the chemicals and then leave it to work, wash and you're off.

    I had my hair bleached a few months ago but it was my first time and my hair is naturally black so I wasn't able to achieve the kind of light blonde that I want. Yours is fantastic though, and it suits your skintone perfectly.

    I would never ever try bleaching at home mainly because I don't trust my skills enough. Hee hee But kudos to you because I think you did a great job with your hair plus the color looks amazing!

    You know what? You look gorgeous whatever your hair color is! Good job on being adventurous 🙂

    I will never understand woman and their needs, haha! While your hair looks lighter, you remain pretty regardless of the shade 🙂 – Sonnie

    One of my frustrations is not being able to experiment on hair colors. I've got a natural jet black hair and people often thought I had it dyed black. It's so black that hair colors don't have an effect on me. I was always advised to have it bleached first if I want a different shade.

    Does a gorgeous girl like you have to really try put the various beauty recipes?I hope you become a very successful model, Georgia.

    I am planning to do some cosplay very soon and I guess this could be really useful as some of the characters I want to portray are notable for being blonde so instead of wearing wigs, i guess making my hair blonde will make it look more natural and realistic
    if i have a dark brown hair.. can i achieve that level of being blonde?

    I love this post! I'm glad you showed the box this time as opposed to the last time you colored so that we can see the brand etc. I am not familiar with the purple shampoo, what is that? The color came out great, I really like the multi shades / highlights & lowlights. Was that done on purpose?
