Welcome to a short new series on my blog! I've been wanting to go lighter or bleach my hair for a while now. It's not that I don't like my hair colour now, but I just wanted a change. I was sure that I didn't want to go to a salon and pay hundreds of pounds, and both my sister and my mother have bleached their hair in the past, so I had some help from them. The second step - toning.
You may have noticed my hair in the last post was rather yellow toned. This was expected, as bleach generally goes quite yellow the first time round. But, in Boots I did remember to pick up a toning kit as well as some silver shampoo and conditioner from Bleach London.
I found the toner very easy to work with, as the bottle provided is a really easy squeeze tube. The White Toner set also came with another hair mask as well as the developing lotion and colourant, with provided gloves. The toner didn't work as well, in the sense that my hair still had some yellow tones in it, but using the Silver Shampoo & Conditioner every second wash really helped and I'm really happy with the finished result.
It isn't full on platinum blonde, but as I said in my previous post, I wanted to go lighter.
I'd definitely recommend the bleach range, it might not be as good and accurate as getting it done in the salon, but it's assured that they know they're stuff. Bleach London products can be found in bigger Boots stores, and prices range from a fiver to no more than a tenner - bargain.
