Before starting your bleach regrowth always ensure that a skin test has been carried out and that the condition of the hair allows you to carry out the service.
Bleach scalp applications should only ever be carried out with a scalp bleach designed to sit slightly away from the scalp to avoid irritation.
The choice of peroxide application with scalp bleach is pastel, 1.9%, 4% or 6%. A peroxide of any higher strength is unsuitable for use on the scalp.
As with a permanent regrowth colour application, hair is sectioned into a hot cross bun section technique. Painting the bleach onto the back section first.
Bleach is only ever applied to the visible virgin hair and product should never be overlapped in order to avoid potential structural damage to the pre-lightened mid lengths and ends.
Starting at the back take small horizontal sections at the crown and apply the bleach to both sides of the regrowth.
Keep working down towards the nape taking extra fine sections with a tail comb.
Continue to paint bleach on to both sides of the section to ensure even coverage and neat application.
Follow on by completing the other back section in the same way and follow through with the front two sections working from the crown to the hairline.
Once the four quarters of the hair have the regrowth colour applied, ensure that the hair line is left until last. This will minimise the structural damage to the most delicate area of the head. Carefully complete the application by neatly applying bleach to the hairline.
Once complete lift the hair slightly away from the scalp to allow air to flow evenly to help even development.
Do not apply heat to any bleach colour application. Visually develop until the warmth is removed and you have achieved your target result. The maximum lift achieved is a very pale yellow.
Please refer to lightening curve.
Once target result has been achieved, you may wish to tone the whole head to neutralise warmth and unwanted tone. Once the bleach has been rinsed, shampooed and conditioned, remove excess water and apply methodically using hot cross bun sectioning. In some cases toner may be applied to root area or mid length and ends first.
Warning, toners may grab to porous areas in lightened hair.
Following manufacturer’s instructions, remove the toner, rinse and condition.
Style as required.
