I Did It Again…..I Lightened My Hair with Peroxide

15 Feb

About two weeks ago I went ahead and lightened my hair again, which was loong overdue. My hair has grown so much since the last time I lightened it, a couple months ago I wanted to lighten my hair but it was feeling a little to dry for my liking so I put it off.

I got the itch again last month to lighten my hair the dark roots and light ends were starting to get old so I decided to go ahead on lighten my hair.

Before I lightened

Before I lightened

I basically followed the same the steps I did the last time.

Added 2Tbs of Lemon Juice to my spray bottle

Filled it a little more than half the way with peroxide I bought from my local drugstore.

Put my hair in about 8-10 chunky twists and sprayed my hair focusing mostly on the roots

Put on a plastic cap and went to sleep

This is what I woke up to

My hair seem to lighten quicker this time, maybe it didn’t but I didn’t need to spray my hair all day like I did the first time nor did I have to use all of my peroxide/lemon juice mixture. I think I sprayed the whole amount I had in the bottle the last time. I only sprayed my hair twice this time, that night before and the following morning. I didn’t leave it in all day long like before either, well I guess 7 p.m isn’t considered all day. lol

I washed the peroxide out with Suave Almond and Shea butter shampoo and deep conditioned with Aubreys Organic Honeysuckle rose conditioner mixed with a ton of oils and some honey, I left it on overnight. The next morning I rinsed with cool water and my hair felt very moisturized thanks to my conditioner concoction.

These are my final results

I am very pleased with my results it’s definitely brighter than last time.
