How to Blend Roots With Bleached Hair: A Quick Tutorial
To maintain a full blonde or bleached hair for quite some time requires a significant amount of effort; and money, more so. And perhaps, you are here because your hair roots are starting to show now, and you are wondering how to maintain your full blonde hair.
Good news! Because there are two easy and affordable ways to do that: first is to blend your roots into your bleached hair and the second is to simply bleach your roots.
What I will teach you, however, is the former.
Why Blend Your Roots Into Your Bleached Hair
Blending your hair roots into the bleached part of your hair is what most hair colorists and enthusiasts recommend. And it simply because it is easy and is less likely to damage your hair. In fact, you do not need to be a pro or precise to achieve the technique’s effect. Simply take a hair dye with a shade the same as the natural color of your hair and apply it using a hairbrush.
Hence, you should not worry if this is your first time! The method suits first-timers like you very well. Although a little help from a friend or a member of is fine too!
But apart from that, some also find the technique’s effect interesting and cool. It creates a “fading effect of dark from light,” which looks more natural compared to bleaching your roots again.
What You Need to Know About the Process
Follow my quick tutorial below and you, too, can recreate the same effect on your hair roots.
The Right Dye for Your Hair Roots
First thing first: opt for the right (and nearly similar) hair dye for roots.
It is common sense to choose a dye with color the same as hair. But following the same principle in terms of hair coloring might not give you the results you want.
So, how do you choose the shade for your har roots?
- The first option is to opt for the natural color of air.
- The second is to pick a color that is two tones darker compared to the area of your bleached hair.
Have you already decided which one to follow? Then let’s move on to the next step.
Prepare the Materials
Of course, you will need materials to carry out the task. But do take note that you should not just simply get hair coloring materials but the correct ones.
Here’s a list of what you will need:
- Dye brush
- Color kit
- Plastic container
- Old cloth or plastic to cover your body
Blend Your Roots With Bleached Hair in 4 easy steps
Now that you have all the materials ready, let us move to the most important section: the application.
- Step 1. The first thing to do is to prepare your hair. Brush your hair out until all knots are gone. Aside from it makes it difficult to apply the dye into your hair, it could also cause uneven color.Make sure to comb and part your hair in the middle part as well.
- Step 2. The second thing to do is to prepare the mixture. The color kit you bought contains three materials: hair dye, hair developer, and a pair of gloves. Using a plastic container, patiently mix the dye and developer until the mixture is smooth.
- Step 3. The next part is—which is also the most crucial step—the application. For this part, you do not need to focus on the accuracy of your application. Simply brush the hair dye into your hair roots repeatedly.
To achieve the technique’s fading effect, hair coloring enthusiasts recommend the application to be irregular and not-so-neat as much as possible. So, when you brush the mixture into your roots, some parts should be longer, and some should be shorter.
The irregular application of the dye creates the fading and blended effect, making your roots and bleached hair look natural. Once you are done applying all the mixture, leave it in your hair for about 40 minutes.
- Step 4. Lastly, rinse your hair after the 40 minutes time limit. Rinse it using lukewarm water and until the dye is completely gone. After that, wash your hair with shampoo and dry it using a hair blower.
And that’s it! Your hair looks new and back to being fully blonde now.
