    Posted: Jun 29 2011 at 12:33am
Okay, i am black and i have straightened relaxed hair. I REALLY want to add color to my bangs by bleaching it first. Everyone that i ask about this tells me it will cause my hair to break and fall off. I would definitely stab myself to death if my hair fell out, but i REALLY want to add color.. Myhair stylist says my hair is very healthy right now. 

And my question is, is there really no way to have healthy, good looking bleached relaxed hair? And money and time is not a problem, i'm willing to spend however much i have to on products to be able to pull this off.

Did you ever ask your stylist if your hair was healthy enough to bleach during your last salon visit?

It can be done but I would suggest being patient and doing research before you do this by yourself. Seriously, there's a way to bleach and not have your hair fall off.

For instance do you know what color melanin your hair will be when you bleach?

Well ok. Here's all i can say for myself.

I just bleached for the first time recently and my hair is intact.
My hair is generally strong according to my stylist. I was getting my hair colored while I was relaxed.
I'm transitioning and bleached my virgin and relaxed hair. All is well.
Friends (2) helped me bleached.

I wanted to apply a semi-permanent unnatural color to my hair.

I cowash my hair so it's moisturized quite often anyway and the day before I had to bleach I let a light protein treatment sit for hours to build up my hair's strength for this chemical process. I'm sure I let conditioner rest on my head a little sometime earlier in the week. Then immediately after my 30 minutes (though bleaching kits or bleach powders recommend 60-90 for dark hair-it's incorrect for African American hair to have bleach on that long) I ran to my backyard with my big thing of moisturizing con and rinsed thoroughly. I made sure all the bleach was out and slathered my hair in my con and left on for 5 minutes rinsed it out and applied another slather on again and left it on for 10-20 minutes and rinsed again. I then observed my color and applied a deep con and left it on through the night and all the way till noon the following day.

BUT before all of this I did a TEST STRAND, TEST STRAND, TEST STRAND!!!
And use 30 VOLUME DEVELOPER NOT 40 Volume or your hair will die!
Can't say it enough!
Also remember that bleach n developer process with heat alot faster so if you apply it at your roots first rather then doing your tips to just above the roots first they'll be lighter (more eaten at by the bleach) so you could be looking at uneven color and breakage at the root!

I researched using:
http://www.clairolpro.com/hair-color-techniques/basic/color-theory
YouTube and googled bleaching natural hair
Talked to someone black on haircrazy.info

Just to start you off...


Notice how light her roots are? She applied there first and it processed quicker because of her natural body heat.

She's natural but she's done the only well done series of bleach vids I've seen

If I can section well enough I'll try putting Vaseline on my tips so that bleach wont eat at them.


Goodluck

This individual had a burgundy semi-permanant dye on relaxed hair tips and a little on their virgin hair (on the right) when they bleached the base color for the burgandy dye was left behind and was red and the virgin hair was dark honey colored (left).

Remember that relaxed/chemically processed hair is more porous and will absorb dyes way better-hence the red color still being there.

Careful careful

Sally's creme developer is on sale for $2 something instead of $5 something for july.

As for products-mine were-
Kalediocolors Blue Tone bleach in the lil bucket-my hair's really thick so wanted to guarantee i had enough product.
30 volume creme bleach
^Put those together till I got a creamy mixture and added a spoon full of oil for moisture.
GLOVES
a tint brush-useless to me but great for straightened hair
Really good con
Really great deep con

Prep items:
Con
Keratin/Protein Treatment/Mix- mine is a full packet of unflavored knox gelatin, loads of cons, oils, and Aphogee 2 min.
