Happy 2015! Can you believe we are 15 years past the time that everything was supposed to go kaputt? Many were afraid that all technology would simply shut down or worse yet, revolt. Well, I guess that isn’t going to happen. So on with the helpful blog posts and videos we go.
Since it’s a new year I decided; new year, new color, to try something completely new hair color and hair color line. I wanted a cool neon orange and use the Pravana ChromaSilk line to achieve it. Checkout the step by step video below, to see how I completed the task. I included the bleach bath directions, color application, and the explanation of why I choose each product.
A bleach bath/ soap cap/ bleach cap is a process that involves mixing hair bleach, developer, and shampoo. The higher the volume of developer, the stronger the mixture. The larger the amount of shampoo, the more diluted the mixture. This mixture is normally applied to wet hair to gently lighten hair a couple shades or to rid the hair of unwanted orange or ashy tones. The mixture is gentle to both the hair and scalp.
I choose to make the mixture even more gentle by adding a little conditioner. I did this because the wig unit I used was so old and worn. I also mixed in hot water and added the mixture to the dry hair extensions. I did this to ensure that I would be able to see the level of lightening in the hair. This would allow me to be able to shampoo out the lightening/bleach bath mixture immediately after achieving the desired level of lift or hair color.
