Lightening My Hair with *Only* 30 Developer

Friday, June 12, 2015

I should have used 40 Developer. 

That was my first thought after my hair was dry and styled. The result was not as light as I wanted it, but I am still moderately satisfied with the color.

Have a look at pics before I explain what I did:

I have been wanting to lighten my hair for a few weeks now, but between traveling and work, I just wasn't able to get around to it. Three days ago, I finally got around to it. 

The process:

  1. You will need a plastic bowl, gloves, and a brush, all seen in the photo below. 
  2. Drench hair in 30 Developer
  3. Wait 2-3 hours (I waited 2.5 hours)
  4. Wash and rinse with your favorite shampoo and conditioner
  5. Air or blow dry (I used a blow dryer)
  6. Voila! Your hair is lighter!
