Q: My bleached hair has a lot of re-growth and I need to get it re-bleached. I can not get it done at a salon because Iím on a low budget. Is it safe to use a home bleaching kit? A friend claims that I
could lose my hair when I use a bleaching kit!
A: You can do severe damage to the hair if you are not experienced using hair bleach. When bleaching new growth it is IMPERATIVE that you not overlap the bleaching agent onto already bleached hair. The bleach can
weaken the overlapped areas and cause breakage at that point.
As an alternative to a traditional salon, check your area for a beauty school that takes clients. The services are performed by near-graduates under their instructorsí supervision
and they generally perform services for much less (usually half the cost or less) than salon costs.
If you feel you must use an at-home kit, you simply HAVE to have the assistance of a friend. This type of retouch is not something you do yourself. You need a clear view of the hair
and that isnít possible from every angle doing it yourself.
