If you have highlights, balayage, or a full head of blonde hair, colouring shampoos and sprays won't suffice as they require bleaching your natural hair colour. You might have wondered if it's possible to bleach your hair at home. Surely, it can't be that difficult, right? At OSO Hair Salon bleaching hair salon we highly recommend you pay us a visit when you decide to go blonde - or you might face a few bumps in the process. Bleach is a potent chemical and not something just anybody can do, our licensed hair stylists can make your hair dreams come to fruition.
Bleach is significantly stronger than regular hair dye. Without proper knowledge and expertise, you run the risk of damaging your hair or even burning your scalp. When attempting to bleach your hair at home, it's not just a matter of the colour turning out poorly, which may result in spending a substantial amount, possibly exceeding a thousand dollars, to rectify the situation. You also risk severe hair breakage, leaving you with uneven hair or even a shaved head until your hair regrows. Bleach is a powerful chemical that strips the hair of its natural pigment. When used incorrectly or left on for too long, it can weaken and break the hair strands. This can result in hair that is brittle, frizzy, and prone to breakage. Professional hairstylists are skilled at assessing the condition of your hair and determining the appropriate bleach strength and processing time to minimize damage. At our salon, we have access to purchase top-of-the-line professional hair products and brands that are not available to the general public, not even online. The hair colour and bleach products accessible to you are often of lower quality, off-brand, and inexpensive. Attempting to bleach your hair at home in any situation cannot be done without risking a whole lot. The risks involved are significant, and prioritizing the health and condition of your hair is our priority and mission. Bleaching hair at home can be a bad idea for several reasons. First and foremost, the process of bleaching hair requires a certain level of expertise and knowledge. Our professional hair stylists undergo extensive training to understand the chemistry of hair and how it reacts to bleach. They learn about factors such as hair porosity, underlying pigments, and the appropriate strength of bleach to use. Without this expertise, it's easy to make mistakes that can lead to irreparable damage to your hair. Achieving even and consistent results with bleach can be challenging for an inexperienced individual. Professional hairstylists are trained in application techniques that help ensure uniform coverage and minimize the risk of patchy or blotchy hair colour. They understand how to section the hair properly and apply the bleach in a way that produces the desired results. Without this knowledge, it's easy to end up with uneven bleaching, which can be difficult to fix without professional help. In addition to the risk of hair damage, bleaching at home also poses a risk of scalp and skin irritation. Bleach is a strong chemical that can cause severe irritation, burning, or allergic reactions when it comes into contact with the scalp or skin. At our salon we are trained to apply bleach carefully and take precautions to protect the sensitive areas of your skin. They use techniques such as applying protective barriers or using specialized products to minimize the risk of irritation. Bleaching hair at home is a risky endeavour that can lead to irreversible damage, uneven results, and potential harm to your scalp and skin. The expertise and knowledge of our licensed hairstylist at OSO Hair Salon are invaluable when it comes to safely performing the bleaching process. We assess your hair's condition, use professional-grade products, and employ proper techniques to minimize the risk of damage. It's best to consult a professional hairstylist rather than attempting to bleach your hair at home.
