How to Bleach Your Hair at Home?
hey guys what’s up Mel right here so if
you’re new to my channel you might think
this is how I usually do my hair but I
usually have a shitload of extensions in
my hair so I look super weird probably
to those who are returning viewers but
the reason why I don’t have my hair
extensions in today is because I wanted
to show you guys how I bleach my hair
and I don’t think it’s fair to do a hair
bleaching tutorial and not show you the
exact final product the extensions can
kind of hide it a bit so I wanted to
show my real hair so you guys can see
how it looks when it’s all done at home
so in the video I’m not showing you guys
how to tone your hair I’m just showing
you the bleaching process in a couple
days I will be posting the toning video
that is already filmed so don’t worry it
is coming up in a couple days and that
will just show you how to get rid of any
yellow or orange tones in your hair so
my hair is naturally about a level 6 or
7 it is a ashy brown tone but that being
said when the hair is bleached it
doesn’t hold on to that ash because the
undertone of hair is always a red shade
so it does go Orange and it does go
brassy so I do always have to tone my
hair so before we get into the video if
you’re new and you enjoy this type of
video make sure to subscribe of course
and hit the notification bell because as
I always say I don’t upload on a regular
basis well I do upload on the regular
basis but not on a regular schedule I
upload quite sporadically so you’re
always gonna be surprised so without
further ado if you want to see how I
bleach my roots then keep on watching so
you need to developer some powdered
bleach these are both by Schwarzkopf and
a mixing bowl and mixing brush
that the measuring utensils and then
grab one big scoop of the bleaching
powder and pour it into the bowl and
then squeeze your developer in and you
just want it to be like a pudding type
consistency I don’t measure it but it
should be a 1:1 ratio and then take your
hair out of your point so because it’s
nice and greasy the grease here your
hair is the better because it protects
your scalp from any damage and protects
your hair from any damage so I am using
a 20 volt volume developer because my
hair isn’t that dark naturally so it’s
not going to need a crazy amount of
lifting so you can use a 20 or a 30 I
don’t recommend using a 40 volume that
is very harsh and you’re really gonna
have to keep an eye on that but you know
do it at your own risk whatever you want
to do so I’m just tying back half of my
part of my hair right down the middle
grab some wearable clubs
grab a old t-shirts you don’t want to
stay in your clothes and then comb out
the one side you’re going to start with
so I’m just going to do a section off
one section at the time this one is
about an half an inch to an inch wide
I’ve very fine hair the finer hair you
have the bigger the sections you can do
the thicker you have the smaller the
sections so I’m just going to paint this
on making sure not to overlap or I have
previously bleached if you do that you
can break your hair so do not overlap
just apply the bleach right to the
regrowth and that’s it
so you want to really saturate the hair
with the bleach so that the product
doesn’t dry out because if it dry us out
then it will stop developing as far as
I’m concerned I am NOT a professional
hairdresser at all I just do my hair at
home so you should beware if you’re
following my instructions so I’m just
making sure that it’s nice and saturated
and I’m pulling my hair nice and taut
and then flipping it over and continuing
to pull the hair taut and then just
doing the opposite side so the tighter
you hold your hair the flatter it is and
the easier it is to apply if you have
curly hair I recommend straightening
your hair before doing this so I’m just
grabbing another section and doing the
exact same thing making sure the part is
nice and clean to make sure that it’s
evenly applied so brushing through any
tangles and then the same thing just
paint it on nice and thick and make sure
that it’s all covered
so again flipping it over and doing the
other side it is pretty tedious from
here on out for the front at least it’s
the same thing over and over again just
grabbing small sections of hair evenly
parting it and then flipping it over and
holding it nice and tight
so I forgot to section off the back of
my hair so I’m just doing that now
I like to do these sides first and then
the back so I’m just going to section
that away so that doesn’t get mixed in
so for this section we’re going to keep
baby hairs out and we’re going to save
the baby hairs for the very very end of
our process because they are much more
delicate from the rest of our hair and I
they’re not as dark for me at least so I
don’t need to put that much product on
it it doesn’t have to develop that long
so we’re holding those out until the end
and that is the only thing different
with this step so I’m just going to fast
forward it now because it’s literally
the same thing all the way down and for
the opposite side as well
so section off the front side pieces
that you’ve done and now we’re going to
work on the back which is pretty tricky
if you’re doing it by yourself as you
can see I am just grabbing the top
section as if you’re going to back comb
your hair and I’m holding it straight up
so that I can still see the roots and
I’m just tilting my head forward so that
I can kind of see where I’m painting I’m
pulling it down nice and tight painting
by a feel and then lifting it up to see
how I’ve done so it’s kind of hit or
miss you kind of apply it a little bit
over the blonde the chances are but it’s
not going to stay on your hair for as
long as the front pieces so the chances
of it breaking are less and I’m using
only in 20 volume developers so I’m not
too worried so again just flipping it
down and then pulling it back up to see
if you’ve missed any spots so now I’m
flipping it over to do the opposite side
and again I’m just pulling it nice and
tight and then painting and this time
I’m just doing it by gas because I can’t
flip this to see it so I’m just hoping
that it all works out you can always
grab a mirror and walk into the bathroom
well you’re probably already doing it in
the bathroom like a normal person would
because you’re not on YouTube but you
can use a handheld mirror to kind of
check as you go so now moving down the
rest of the back of the hair I’m pulling
it to the side actually so I’m parting
it right in the middle
then I’m pulling it to my ear so that I
can see the regrowth and the more
regrowth you have the easier it will be
to see so I do have a fair fair amount
of roots so it’s easier for me to see if
you just have a little bit then you
might not even be able to see the roots
when you pull it forward
so same thing for this as I did with the
top piece I’m just holding it taut and
then painting it on and bring it forward
to look and etc etc so now I pretty much
do the exact same thing on the other
side well not pretty much I do do the
exact same thing on the other side and I
do this all the way until I finished and
then I will look in the mirror and see
if I’ve missed any spots and if I have I
will just touch that up with the brush
and yeah that’s pretty much the process
you guys so I’m not going to be toning
my hair today as you can see it is a
little bit yellow at the top so oops
forgot to mention now we are doing the
baby hairs because they don’t need to
process as long and they’re fragile so
we don’t want them to process as long
and I’m not applying that much product
and I’m so tacky how I’m shooting my gum
I’m disgusting I’m a disgusting animal
anyway so I’m not Tony my hair today I
am going to do that in a separate video
which we posted in a couple days so stay
tuned for that
so now I’m going to wrap my hair to hold
the heat inside my head to help it
process faster and I’m just wrapping it
up with cellophane and obviously this
isn’t a science I’m just flipping it up
and then wrapping it around don’t wrap
the face because then you will suffocate
I think that goes without saying
and then don’t forget to do a dance
always necessary while you’re waiting
for to process so now you’re going to
wait for it to process I wait 30 minutes
but you could be different so that is
the final look guys that’s how I bleach
my hair okay guys that’s the video for
today if you enjoyed it make sure to
give it a thumbs up those thumbs that
you do everything and make sure to
comment and I’ll see you next time bye
You have unwanted hair on your face and you want to make it disappear? Then bleaching cream against your lady beard might be the solution.
In addition to the removal with the epilator, wax and other means, bleaching the lady’s bar is a good alternative without removing the hair. It is also painless to use and therefore very popular with women. I’ll show you what you should know about bleaching so that the application can successfully make your ladybug disappear. I also want to introduce you to the best bleaching creams for your face.
How hair bleaching cream works on the face?
With the help of hair bleaching cream, you can withdraw the color from your annoying hair in the face. In contrast to plucking or epilating the hair does not disappear. The oxidizing agent (info Wikipedia), which is contained in most hair bleaching creams, softens the hair. So the bleach can penetrate the hair and destroy the color pigments of your hair. The result is a very light, almost transparent hair. The lady beard is for most people no longer perceive as a beard, because the hair on the face of the color is removed.
Of course, bleaching only makes sense if you have a dark lady beard, that is black or brown hair. If you are one of the women who have a light lady beard, then you have to resort to other methods. Here you have all methods at a glance.
The best bleaching creams for your lady beard
Below I would like to introduce you to the two best hair bleach creams for the face. The face is particularly sensitive, so you should be extra careful when choosing a product. I recommend the following products to you based on my personal experience or the tips of other women. An important note yet: There are also skin bleaching creams! You would not be the first woman to make that mistake. But with these products you are on the safe side:
No. 1 – SNA Epil hair bleaching cream
The SNA Epil hair bleaching cream is one of the most popular hair bleaching creams of women. It is particularly suitable for the lady beard. Before using, however, you should thoroughly read the instructions for use. Also, I recommend the cream in a small place, e.g. on the arm to test for compatibility. The package includes gel, powder, a small droplet for mixing and a spatula for application. The contact time is specified according to the manufacturer with 15-20 minutes. But I have the experience that just in the face a shorter time of about 5 minutes is sufficient because the hair is often thinner and lighter. The application of the SNÄ Epil hair bleaching cream is very easy and quick. The amount of cream is enough for many applications on the face. I got along with her for several months.
My conclusion: Based on my personal experience, I can only recommend the SNÄ EPIL hair bleaching cream for the face. I had no skin irritation or other side effects. The reviews on Amazon are also very good. The value for money is right.
No. 2 – X-Epil Hair Bleaching Cream Extra Sensitive 2 × 40 ml
“Extra Sensitive” is the name of the hair bleaching cream from X-Epil. Whether the cream is more compatible than the others, I can not judge. Fact is, the hair bleaching cream from X-Epil is a great alternative to hair removal on the face. For this cream, you should read the instructions carefully before use. Again, a spatula is included to apply the hair bleaching cream. Since this is quite large, a cotton swab is just perfect for applying to the upper lip. The exposure time varies also with this cream very strong. It depends on the hair texture and is between 5-20 minutes. Here you have to test a little. Like the SNÄ Epil, the hair bleaching cream must be mixed beforehand. To do this, pour the gel and the bleach powder into the beaker (all included) and stir it into a cream that can then be applied.
My conclusion: The hair bleaching cream from X-EPIL is also good. I just called it NR.2 because I did not try it personally. Other women are very convinced of her. Just look at the reviews on Amazon and convince yourself.
What should be considered when using hair bleaching cream?
Before using it, you should read the instructions for use to get the best results and avoid side effects. You must pay attention to the exposure time of the cream, otherwise, it can lead to unpleasant reactions of the skin. If you have mixed the hair bleaching cream as described in the instructions, then it is best to test the cream in a small spot before applying it to your face. When the exposure time has run out and you have removed the cream with a spatula, wash your face with cold water. After the application, you should apply a care lotion/cream.
Does the bleaching cream have side effects?
One can say that the hair bleaching cream is not harmful to health. However, some women may experience skin irritation. For example, I have heard from some women that they have had red spots on their face for a few hours after use. That’s not nice.
Therefore, an important note from me: Be sure to follow the instructions for use of your cream to avoid subsequent problems with your skin. If you notice that the hair bleaching cream is not for you, you have to resort to other means. Just look at my page. In addition to the epilator, the IPL device for the face is the best solution. With this, you can permanently remove your hair on the face.
Advantages and disadvantages of hair bleaching cream

- no stubble on the face

Questions and Answers
Below I answer some questions that were put to me about bleaching lady beard. If you have any questions or suggestions on the topic, then write to me.
Why does the hair bleaching cream burn after application?
It can easily burn after applying the bleaching cream. This is due to the oxidizing agents contained in the Blondiercremes / hair bleach. A light burning is not bad. However, if it becomes strong and uncomfortable, then you should immediately remove the cream from your face to avoid damage.
What should dark skin types consider?
If you are a darker skin type, then it can be that your facial hairs look very bright after bleaching? Here I recommend you in any case first a small place to test how the hair after bleaching look.
Bleach without damage with these 8 tips
You want a casual granny or a beautiful beach-blonde and without damaging the hair while bleaching? It is possible! Read the 8 best tips here.
Blonde hair is beautiful but often difficult to reach. Many fear the damage that can be caused by bleaching and shun it. But a beautiful blond is easy to achieve without damaging the hair if you have enough patience and follow our tips. I used to work as a hairstylist myself and know the pitfalls of bleaching. In this post, I’ll show you what the most common mistakes are and how to get around them.
1. Do not wash before bleaching
How many times have the customers come to the salon earlier and said radiantly, “I washed my hair at home, then you do not have to do this anymore.” Before bleaching, this is fatal, because washed hair is much more sensitive and also the scalp is less well protected.
Therefore, I advise you not to wash your hair before the hairdresser, even if they are no longer fresh. Hairdressers have no problem with it and prefer to judge for yourself if it is necessary to wash your hair or not. For example, tinting requires a thorough hair wash before applying. Not when bleaching.
2. Maintain the scalp
Not only the hair but also the scalp may suffer from the bleaching process. It is therefore important to properly pre- and post-treat your scalp. Anyway, the scalp is often neglected in hair care. The tips are cherished and cared for, but the new hair sprouts from the scalp. It should, therefore, be healthy!
The Lanza Healing Remedy Scalp Balancing Treatment is used for sustainable and effective treatment of dandruff. It nourishes and controls oily, dry and sensitive scalp. The natural ingredients such as papaya extract, shiso mint, coconut water, and lavender oil have a balancing, soothing, refreshing, moisturizing and nourishing effect. They reduce sebum production, relieve itching and inhibit microbial activity.
3. Olaplex – the miracle drug
Surely you have already heard of Olaplex. Is the miracle agent that good? I was allowed to gain an extremely good experience with it. Although Olaplex certainly does not allow bleaching from black to platinum in a few hours, it is the best remedy for hair breakage during bleaching. Be sure to use home after treatment as well. If your hair is already damaged by bleaching, Olaplex No. 3 help to repair the damage again.
Ask your hairdresser when bleaching always to Olaplex. Of course, systems like Fibreplex are also recommended, they are based on the same principle.
4. Tint, color, and bleaching differ
I was often shocked in the salon, as many women do not know the difference between tones, dyeing, and bleaching. Of course, it is the hairdresser’s job to choose the right remedy. And yet it is useful to know at least the biggest differences. It helps in choosing the right hair color and you can better assess how firmly your hair will suffer from the new hair color.
When tinting the color pigments are placed around the hair. The color does not or does not penetrate the hair at all. Thus, tints for the hair are not harmful at all. Tinting is the gentlest hair dyeing technique. Tints can only color the hair darker. Lighter tones are not possible and gray hair is not covered.
Hair dyes or colorations penetrate the hair and alter the pigments. With hair color, gray hairs are covered and the hair can be darker as well as lighter colored. Hair colors can only be applied to natural hair. If your hair is already dyed and you want it brighter, the handle for bleaching is necessary.
Blondes remove the artificial and natural pigments from the hair and brighten them up. So if you already have dyed hair or want to lighten your hair by more than 4 levels, you need to have your hair bleached. Bleached hair is depigmented hair and no hair color in the sense. You should, therefore, insist that your hairdresser always tint the freshly bleached hair with a tint. This is the only way to create a beautiful blond tone.
5. Realistic and slow
If it has to go too fast, the hair always suffers. The best tips can not help if you are aiming for a quick lightening of the hair. The hair colors are graded on a 1-10 color scale. 1 is black and 10 and blondes are lighter. You should never lighten more than 5-6 levels in a bleach, even with Olaplex. Only then can the hair health be preserved.
6. Post-treatment: keratin and moisture
The hair is bleached – now it is important to choose the right treatment. In addition to Olaplex need the hair after bleaching especially moisture and keratin. Use an intense moisturizer like Redken’s Extreme – Anti-Snap, a leave-in treatment that is incredibly moisturizing. Whenever necessary, I recommend a deep – care mask like the Discipline Maskeratine from Kérastase. Also, hair oil should become your new best friend. Treat your hair after bleaching like expensive porcelain – because it is just as sensitive.
7. Less washing less styling
Bleached hair is drier and less quickly greasy. So get used to washing your hair less often. Every three days is enough. In an emergency, you can treat the greasy areas with dry shampoo. The freshly bleached tips will thank you. Even when styling with heat appliances such as straighteners or curling iron caution is required. Be sure to use heat protection and rarely treat the hair with heat. This additionally damages the hair.
8. Cut regularly
The tips of bleached hair should necessarily be recut regularly. Especially if you have bleached all your hair fresh. Do not try to dye blond hair at the same time and let your hair grow. As soon as only the batch has to be retouched, it is no longer a problem.
