I am Wengie, a beauty blogger.I love being blonde. It’s such a fun color because you can use temporary dye to change it to whatever color you want it to be. I get bored of my hair pretty quickly so this is the perfect color for me. To be honest, going blond was not easy.
The first time I tried to bleach my hair I was in Japan and I used a weird type of bleach. It took me two or three times to get my hair to an ugly orangey blond. I now mix my own blend using bleach powder and a forty-volt developer. Forty volt is very strong, so be prepared to have damaged hair.
If you have virgin black hair that isn’t that thick, mix one-part bleach powder and two parts developer. It should take you to a light yellow color after 30 to 45 minutes. If you’ve used permanent hair dye on your hair in the past, you could find that your hair is more resistant to the bleach, and you’ll only end up with orange hair after the allotted time. You’ll need to bleach your hair twice.
After you finish with the bleach, it will be an ugly yellow. I use L’Oréal preference permanent color to tone and color my hair after bleaching it. You could use a straight toner, but this one actually lightens the hair a little bit more and evens out the color. If you’ve made some mistakes with the bleach, this will take it out. You’ll need two boxes if you have long hair. If you follow the instructions, 45 minutes later you’ll have pretty, blond hair.
Now, to dye it pink. You’ll need some cheap conditioner and a pink temporary dye. You want to squeeze out enough conditioner to coat your whole head of hair in a mixing bowl or a container. Slowly mix it all up with the dye until you have a color that’s three to four shades lighter than how you want it to turn out. I use about one third of the tube. Slather the conditioner onto your hair and wait 30 to 40 minutes. Wash it out and you’re down.
