Everything You Need to Know About Hair Bleach
Having different hair colours is exciting as it allows a person to fully express their own style. Given that not all people were blessed to be born blonde, those who would want to have a lighter shade of hair colour would have to have it bleached first.
Among the EDGE Beauty Bar services that we offer is hair bleaching. With that, our customers can have the chance to fully achieve the colour that they wish for. So, if you are not that familiar with hair bleaching and what it does to your hair, then make sure to check this out.
What is hair bleach?
Hair bleach is a chemical dye that helps lighten your natural hair colour. More often than not, this leaves your hair one or two shades lighter than how it actually is. The intensity of how it can lighten your hair comes in different levels that depend on how you need it.
Although some people prefer bleaching their own hair at home, we highly recommend that the process should be done with the help of professionals. As much as it is easy to apply, bleach should always be prevented from having any contact with the skin since it may cause some chemical burns. This is the reason why our staff always makes sure that they wear gloves whenever they bleach someone’s hair.
Bleach works with the process of oxidation. This process enables the bleach to strip off the pigment from your hair shaft after it has been fully absorbed. It also helps raise your hair’s outer cuticle so that the bleaching agent can penetrate completely.
The most common hair bleach
There are many types of hair bleach that are being used. The most common ones are hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. These two are most of the time combined with one another since their properties, once combined, will make it easier to lighten the colour of your hair.

What to expect in a bleaching session
If you haven’t had your hair bleached before, then you may be clueless about what happens in a session. With that, here are some things that you may expect in your hair bleaching session.
- Make sure that you are making the right decision about your bleached hair since the process will take hours on the salon chair.
- If it’s your first time being bleached, then you may feel a crawling itchy sensation on your scalp while your hair is being bleached.
- Be honest about your hair history since hairstylists need to know about the treatments that you’ve had in the past.
