HEYLO everyone! :D
WAH, it's been about one whole month since I last uploaded a video. Some of you may have thought that I just disappeared off the Earth, but NOPE, I'M STILL HERE! Teehee. A lot has been happening with me within this past month, but things are starting to settle down again.
I'm already failing my 2012 new year resolution that stated "Make at least 2 tutorials per month!" Well, I'm not gonna just give that up. I'll try to make it up to you all! I've missed making tutorials so much and chatting with all of my wonderful subscribers ^_____^ !
Many of you have requested for me to do a tutorial on my red side streak, so here it is! Initially, I was just going to make a blog post about it, but I think a video tutorial would be much easier to understand. I filmed this weeks ago but didn't even get a chance to edit/finish it until today.
Anyhow, I really love my red streak. It's caught quite some attention in real life. It's a subtle difference but it makes such a bold statement! The only down side to it is that I have to re-dye it every two weeks. When I'm lazy, I just let it fade to a peachy yogurt color; after a month or so, it just goes back to blonde, which I don't mind xD
Here's what you'll need!
-Wellite Bleach Powder
-40 Volume Developer
(If your hair is weak/fragile, I wouldn't recommend bleaching it at all because the mixture is very harsh. If you don't want to damage your hair much, you may use a 30 or 20 volume developer instead; although, you might need a few bleaching sessions to achieve a nice blonde color)
-Loreal Excellence HiColor HiLights in RED
-20 Volume Developer
-Mixing bowl, brush (you can substitute for whatever similar things you have at home)
1. Make sure you're not allergic to the hair dye (do an allergy test first)
2. Work with dirty hair (3rd-4th day is the best)
3. The hair dye will stain so make sure you protect your work space with newspaper
4. If your hair has been dyed before, it may take you a few bleaching sessions. If you have dark virgin hair to begin with, the Well-Lite bleach should work fantastic!
5. After you've foiled your hair (for bleach or dye), you should blow dry your section. Applying heat will help to intensify the color and speed up the process!
5. Rinse off your bleach and hair dye with cold water (NOT hot) and condition it well.
6. Wait for a few days between bleaching sessions; you should also wait for a few days between bleaching & dying sessions.
That's all I can think of right now. HAVE FUN rocking your new color :D
Have a spectacular week!
