Definite Repurchase!

I bought this pack of bleach because a) my roots desperately needed a touch up and b) I was interested to see what it would be like. I paid the full $20 smackers for it, and it’s a purchase I definitely do not regret.

The bleach comes in an eye catching box, mostly white with the shiny silver. My magpie senses were tingling. Inside the box you would find the usual suspects – the applicator bottle, the color, conditioner and easy to read instructions. As this is bleach, instead of color it came with a sachet of powder and a tube of oil based bleach. This bleach does not contain ammonia. This is a fact I didn’t know when I purchased, so when I began applying I was pleasantly surprised!

To use, you mix the powder into the developing cream, and you then add the tube of oil based… stuff, I’m not sure the proper name for it and I’m not dumpster diving to find out. You roll it between your hands to mix, and then shake straight up and down to finish combining. The kit comes with an AWESOME pair of gloves – they’re thick and they fit my hands quite perfectly. I think if you had big hands you may have issues.

Application is easy, you just turn the bottle upside down and squirt the bleach where you want it. It’s just like using normal dye, except this will lighten your hair. To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure it’d work, as I usually associate bleach with an awful smell. 45 minutes later, though, my roots are definitely blonder.

I began rinsing and I was so, SO pleased to find that the bleach had not damaged my hair like it usually does. It was still soft and manageable in the water, so I was really happy. The kit comes with purple conditioner, and I guess if you stay blonde it’s supposed to be a 6 week treatment. I’m not planning on staying blonde for long, so I used half of the tube. You leave the conditioner in for 15 minutes so it can work it’s magic, and after showering it out I can definitely see a difference in the tone of my hair.

I will definitely be repurchasing this. 1 box was enough to do 4 months worth of regrowth. 4 months!!! I will admit though, my hair didn’t go platinum like it did on the box. At best, the hair closest to my scalp is platinum, and the rest is a blondey, orangey color. Mostly blonde though. It did miss a few spots where I very clearly went over with what was left in the tube, so it’s mostly a hit and not often a miss. It did not burn, which is fantastic as the last 2 times I've used hair salon grade bleach I've had burns from it. Regardless, this was a damn good experiment and I’m pleased to say it’s worked in my favour.

Tips: I used a hair dye brush to apply the bleach, it helped to disperse it more.
