My hair has grown a lot since I had it cut into a pixie style back in May. My hair has just started to grow past my ears *finally*. My hair has been pink and as much as I had fun with the pink hair I decided it was time to go back blonde and give Bblonde High Lift Powder Bleach a whirl to see if it would remove the pink.
I am very familiar with Jerome Russell Bblonde products, I have been using them since I was 18 ‘cough- cough, 10 years’. I have made a few mistakes using them but I would like to think I have learnt from them now because dying and bleaching your hair is something that shouldn’t be taken easily because it needs to be thought about and looking into without delving into the deep end like I have in the past and had many hair disasters.
Bblonde High Lift Powder Bleach
For blonde to dark brown hair
Permanent maximum Lightner – lights up 6-9 shades
Great if your an expert at doing your own hair.
Inside the box, you get 4 sachets 25g each. You mix one of them with one bottle of 75ml cream peroxide (sold separately)
How much is it?
This cost me £2.66 while the bottles of cream peroxide cost me about £1.50 each
Professional salon formula
Formulated with mineral oil for hydration and shine.
The maximum cream peroxide in 30% ( I wouldn’t suggest 40%!) and is formulated with avocado oil for enhanced hydration and shine.
Things you need
An old towel, vaseline for your hairline etc, Timer, Tinting Bowl and Brush, Plastic gloves and Preferably someone to help.
No matter how many times you have dyed your hair in the past it is extremely important to perform a skin and strand test, even if its the same product every time!
Mix the powder bleach in the tinting bowl with the cream peroxide, you need of each. The box contains 4 sachets so this box would need 4 cream peroxides over 4 different occasions or if you have long hair you might need to use more than one each time.
Now my hair is very short so applying this was different then it was when I had longer hair. I got my boyfriend to apply the mixture to the ends of my hair first then onto the roots, be careful not to get any on the scalp.
Now my hair was only a dusky pink so I only left this on for about 20 minutes but it can be left for up to 90 minutes but for goodness sake time it and make sure you keep an eye on hair too.
After time elapsed I washed it off and used a conditioning shampoo and a deep conditioner. Bblonde actually makes one for use after this but I used my own products.
- Read the instructions more than once
- Open a window! These smell pretty bad so ventilation is a must!
- Skin and strand test is a must! Reactions happen and its best to take precautions
- Do not use this if your not sure as bleach will damage hair regardless of precautions and requires a lot of upkeep.
- Do not bleach hair more than once in a short period of time, my goodness it is not good for hair, it’s always best to wait 6 weeks in my opinion.
- I am not an expert, just a girl who has used this many times over the years!
- I would recommend going to the hairdressers as they are the experts!
- AVOID 40% it is very damaging to hair
- Don’t use on hair that’s been dyed too much as results can vary, I would recommend going to the hairdressers.
💗 PIN ME X 💗
It worked really for me and as I kept it on my hair for the bare minimum time I didn’t damage my hair. It made hair a light blonde again which I am super happy about, all I need to do now is apply a white blonde toner which I am planning to do in a few days time after I give hair a break.
When my hair needs touchups I will definitely be using this again as it’s a budget-friendly option for me to keep up with the upkeep of my hair. As I said above, always do research as it is not something to jump into, in my opinion.
Want to see a youtube video of me using this? If so check out my youtube channel of me using the product and also the results afterwards.
Until next time
