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.
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.
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?
