Part 1; How I Bleached My Extensions

Hey guys!

If your anything like me, then you are very impatient and very decisive! Last Tuesday I woke up and had the need to have ombre hair. So off I ran to boots to buy myself some bleach to bleach my extensions! 

The ombre I wanted, Ashlee Simpson is HOT

WARNING: Do not attempt to dye synthetic extensions.

Now I am going to show you how I did it, but bearing in mind I am not a professional or expert just a really impatient person, it wont be perfect! My extensions were bought blonde, I had dyed them about 6 times, and were completely black before I started - the bleach had a lot of work to do :P

You can read about my extensions here :)

Tools;
Bleaching Kit - Powder and Bleach
Hair - On your head or extensions
Brush - To mix the stuff up
Tinfoil 
Old Towel 


I used the Jerome Russell Bblonde for light to brown hair. In the pack you get 4 powder bleaches, but you have to buy the Cream Peroxide separately. The box cost like £3.50 and the developer was £1.50 ish. 

For my extensions I needed 2 sachets and 2 bottles.
You just mix them up and you are ready to go!


Then I put my extension in, made a mental note of how far I wanted the bleach up, took them out and put them on a sheet of tin foil to reduce the mess, then I slapped the bleach on!

 

 I left them for 30 mins, then ta-da! Gingery blonde hair :D




Now, my hair did look really frizzy so I left conditioner on over night and it seemed to help. But I did end up dying them a magenta purpley colour, which I think made them look a lot healthier and blend in more with my own hair. That will be in part 2 of my extension post :)

If you have any questions leave me a comment!
