Hair bleaching with minimal damage

 

How to turn blonde with minimal damage

Do you have a few shades of lightening in your hopes or do you want as light as possible?

If you have dark brown or black hair, making it light can be a real challenge. The hair should be very pale if cold platinum or gentle pastel shades are desired.

De-colouring products

De-colouring is still the most consuming treatment for hair, but with current professional products it is also possible to bleach as gently as possible and save hair.

With properly selected and high-quality de-colouring products made from raw materials, you will get smooth results. High-quality de-colouring products include caring ingredients that protect and nourish hair during the process and prevent hair from drying out and being damaged.

When taking lightening, it is necessary to ensure that the hair remains healthy, moisturized and well. Home care products ensure that the hair stays in the best possible condition between hairdressing visits.

De-vicarage contains effective chemicals that professionals use when working. Therefore, we recommend that you leave the most challenging dyes and the use of strong chemicals to professionals.

Hair bleaching requires complete consideration and professional consultation regarding the condition of your hair. However, there is no need to fear a bleaching. When used correctly, de-vicarage produces impressive results.

We put up a guide for the person considering hair reduction and de-vicarage

1. Be realistic and at the same time patient with the lightening project

De-vicarage is a more long-lasting process than you think. The darker or more processed the starting point, the more likely it is that more de-colour removals will be needed.

A common misconception arises from before-and-after images, where it is easy to think that a complete colour change has occurred in a single hairdressing visit. Less often, you’ll see images of events made between processes where the color spectrum of dyeing can be dramatic before the final tint goal.

HAIR DARKENING LEVELS

Hair darkening levels are defined on a scale of 1 to 12, of which 1 is darkest (black). The most selective base is 12 at the other end of the scale.

Depending on the hair quality, its condition and the selected lightener, one dyeing can lighten the hair by about 3-7 degrees.

All hair has a basic pigment in the background, which we call red pigmentation. In the election hair it is yellow to golden yellow orange tint, while in the dark it is red and in black it is dark red.

From black and dark hair, lightening passes through red to orange and from yellow to light. These warm pigments emerge in every lightening and require a folding tone to fold unwanted nuances away.

Hair tinting after de-vicarage is a crucial step towards achieving a beautiful, balanced color.

2. Let the professional do the de-vicarage on your hair

Always de-vibrating with a hairdresser with experience in dyeing and lightening hair.

De-vibrating is the most damaging treatment of all dyeing techniques and should always be carried out by a professional. Fortunately, hair can now be protected and treated with the right product choices even during lightening. At Blackout, we use Olaplex to protect your hair from the stresses of a lightening.

It is worth remembering that in a hair salon the products are of high quality and the starting point is to perform color removals safely without damaging the hair. High-quality products and strong professionalism avoid chemical breakage of hair. Not to mention the skin lesions that have made headlines in recent years, caused by little knowledge of strong products and their effects.

The health and dyeing history of your hair affects the formula used by a professional to implement de-colouring. It is worth being completely honest with the hairdresser and telling all the chemical treatments done to your hair. Also tell us about the small dyeing experiments that may not have gone according to plan, as each treatment done with hair affects the practices and products that will be used to achieve the end result you are seeking. The best way to go from dark to light is to care for the hair snally between each lightening.

3. How to choose a hair salon

The choice of the comb shop is crucial:

  • Choose a hair salon specialising in hair dyes, which will certainly have experience in demanding hair dyes. Make sure that the hairdresser uses an olaplex for dyeing.
  • Compare the website of hairdressers and read the recommendations.
    Ask your friends where they go and forget all the hair dye offers.
  • If you are not 100% sure about the hair salon of your choice, book an appointment for testing, for example, Olaplex treatment to prepare your hair for future lightening treatment. In this case, together with the hairdresser, you can discuss the possibilities, products and techniques that he or she will use for dyeing. This will give you confidence in the hairdresser in whose hands you trust your hair.
  • A good hairdresser will give you recommendations and an estimate of the duration of the work. Also include model images of your wishes, as the image leaves no room for interpretation.
  • Tell your hairdresser exactly all the treatments done to your hair to avoid damage.
  • When booking time, please contact your chosen hair salon by phone toallow you sufficient time.

4. Commit to the care of your hair even before the first de-colouring

Before de-colouring, we recommend that you visit the hairdresser for Olaplex treatment if your hair has been treated or if there are already lightenings at the bottom.

Olaplex repairs existing lesions and ensures that your hair stays in the best possible condition during the lightening process. You can start using the Olaplex home care product even before you lighten your hair and continue your home care routine after the bleaching.

What kind of compromises are you willing to make in terms of the care and design of your hair?
Hair heat treatments and straightening dry the hair and remove moisture from it. If you’re used to washing and straightening your hair daily, de-vicarage may not be the best possible base for your routine. In addition to your changed styling plans, you may need to shorten your hair after de-vi coloring to make the dry tops of your hair look healthy again.

5. Book your next visit immediately and invest in the right home care products

The next time should be agreed on about 4-6 weeks, when the hair growth is still low. If the winter growth grows long, there is a risk that it will remain in a different shade when lightened. In this case, a correction is needed to smooth the shades and further de-colouring, causing the lengths to suffer and the hair to dry unnecessarily.

If you don’t want to visit a hairdresser every four weeks, it’s worth considering whether the striping of the sheath would be your thing instead of bleaching. Striping helps to avoid the sight of steady winter growth, fading it beautifully from dark to light.

Consider not lightening the stable area if you don’t mind a darker shed. In this case, your scalp avoids the stresses of bleach. The dark low usually gives a beautiful depth to the light lengths.

It should also be remembered that platinum blondes need home care products that maintain a cold tone as home care products, neutralizing unwanted yellow and warm shades of hair. In fashion colours, home care is also of great importance, as fashion colours fade quickly in washes. In this case, prepare to update your tone yourself between home hairdressing visits.

Healthy and well-maintained hair keeps shades better than dry and processed hair.
For this reason, we recommend high-quality hairdressing products selected for your hair as home care products. Keep your hair moisturized and nourished with caring and buildable intensive treatments. Reduce hair straightening and always use a heat protection product as styling products.

OLAPLEX – INNOVATION FOR YOUR HAIR

Olaplex is a product that has gained great popularity, partly with the help of public figures. Olaplex is the explanation for the incomprehensible metamorphosis of many celebrities .

The purpose of Olaplex is to prevent damage to broken bridges in the hair and to repair already damaged sulfur bridges. The Olaplex treatment itself is three parts. The first two steps are carried out in the hair salon and the third as home care. The first Olaplex phase prevents normal break-ups of the sulfur bridges in the fibre layer of hair that occur in oxidation treatment (color and permis). The substance also begins repairing already damaged sulfur exchanges. The second part of the Olaplex phase ties the sulfur bridges in the hair firmly to each other. In the third stage – home care – the final results of the treatment will be maintained until the next hairdressing treatment.

Olaplex says that its product is a completely new type of chemistry that has not been used in hair products before. The new innovation makes the hair stronger and better in every use. Olaplex fits and works in all kinds of hair and in all condition, heavily treated as well as untreated. It also does not depend on color series characters. Olaplex does not need to be used only for lightening, it is also suitable for use in chemical treatments as intensive care.

Comparison winner

Our choice was focused on two products: Olaplex and BondPro+, which performed more often in different areas. With these, we have done countless treatments with a wide variety of hair. The superiority of the duo grew the worse the starting point for the hair. Not everything is possible either, so you can’t call them miracles. However, with the right uses, they will create bolder and brighter stabilitys.

These products do not create a coating on the surface of the hair, but penetrate deeper inside the hair, repairing and preventing damage to chemical treatments. The advantage of BondPro is that it is 100% customized to the Goldwell colors we use.

 

Final statement

The hairdressing industry is constantly evolving and industry manufacturers are constantly introducing new products to enable different dyes and even more spectacular end results.

Olaplex, FIBREPLEX, Wellaplex, Niophlex, BondPro+, colorpHlex™, ProCortexx, ESLABONDEXX, Smartbond and Pro Fiber all strive for the same result, but do so by various means. The products make bolder waxing easier and easier, but they still don’t make everything possible. There are no miracle substances, and the author is still required to have solid expertise. Professionalism remains the most important aspect of chemical treatments.

Two products from different manufacturers emerged as our superior favorite products: Olaplex and BondPro+. These products do not create a coating on the surface of the hair, but penetrate deeper inside the hair, repairing and preventing damage to chemical treatments. The advantage of BondPro is that it is 100% customized to the Goldwell colors we use.

These are completely different products, all of which tell us that they are doing the same thing: repairing damaged hair. After the first two washes, the hair of all brands was in good condition and there were no major differences. After the fourth wash, it was clear which products coated the hair with silicone. These hairs did not repair sulfur bridges, but sought to create a shiny but temporary surface with silicone. Without further treatment at home, this hair quickly felt damaged and dry. In addition to images, shine is all they can offer.

The promotional texts of the products must be able to consider what advertising speech is and what kind of results are actually possible. Many manufacturers tend to use fine praise to create positive images of the results and effects, even if the product itself contains only silicone.
