This post is for your viewing pleasure only, really, just watch it, we are not a fan of doing your own bleach job even though some people might decide to attempt it. We just don’t want to be responsible for anything burning or melting or falling out, we highly recommend doing any bleach jobs at a salon. Now that we have that out of the way, youtuber OffbeatLook gives a very detailed tutorial on how to do a teal blue ombre color on her hair after bleaching it.
Coming off the heels of that Teyana Taylor post I have been curious about how to achieve such vibrant colors in your hair and was kind of estatic when I saw an actual tutorial. I swear you can find anything on YouTube!
Then I watched the tutorial and I was like, my God could I put my hair through that? The answer is a definite know, I even thought back to in my twenties if I would attempt it, and while I love the idea I probably wouldn’t do it, no matter how you slice it.
Ever wonder what bleach is made of, well I did a little research and I found that most bleaching agents have ingredients like potassium(affiliate link) persulphate which helps to whiten and lift color, and it also has sodium metasilicate which helps to open up your strand and allow the bleach to penetrate the strand.
Bleach depletes your hair strand making your hair porous and allowing you to add whatever color you decide to add to your hair. The color will look great because there is nothing to mix with it so whatever it is you want will essentially be achieved.
If you want crazy colors or platinum blonde there is alot that comes with that and there is even more that is expected afterwards in terms of haircare. You are working with a strand that has be broken and thinned out so your job afterwards is keeping your hair moisturized all the time, deep conditioning(affiliate link) and using protein to keep your hair ‘healthy’.
now watch the tutorial:
We found another video that was done by the same youtuber called the Truth about hair dye, and we thought it would very beneficial to share that video too. Check it out:
