How to use Curlformers! No Heat Curls tutorial
Made another video~ I really like using curlformers when I want long lasting no heat curls :D There’s a bunch of different widths and lengths so it’s easy to create all kinds of styles. The hair forms curls the best with damp hair but it’s harder to get them in the curlformers that way… So I put my hair in dry and the wet the curlformers afterwards. Within an hour or two, they’re ready to remove. The longer the hair is left in, the tighter the curl will be. You can even put them in before bed and wake up to pretty curls :3 All without the damage of hot styling tools~ They’re available at Sally’s Beauty or online if you’d like to try them out some time
As promised the second part of my new haircolor video, actually dyeing my hair :3 Got a little bit of lavender in there too around my bangs and sideburns. All the colors/materials used are listed in the youtube description box. I want to make one of these every time I redo my hair from now on 8D
I’m not a professional but have bleached my hair very light using this method many many times with minimum damage. I am going for a silver/grey at my roots, fading down into a light blue, blue, then purple. See me dye my hair in the next video :D
Before bleaching your whole head, I would recommend trimming a small lock of hair and observing it in the bleach combo. That will also help get the timing down for how light you want it to lift. Roots lift faster than the rest of the hair due to heat from the scalp, so that’s something to keep in mind as well.
For truly white hair, a toning shampoo comes in handy. Alternatively, a drop of purple dye in conditioner can even out the yellow tones too.
You will need:
Silver/purple shampoo (Optional)
Basically cut off 6 inches all the way around! (Most of the purple part) It’s more like 5 inches in the back, nearly 7 or 8 in my shorter front layers. It had gotten 22 inches long! Yeowza. Filmed this before Halloween and it’s nearly grown back by now. OTL
I’m really low maintenance and long hair can be a pain. Showing off some of my quick hairstyles that keep my hair out of my face! None should take longer than a minute or two to master.
Forgot to talk about some FAQ so that’ll be another video haha!
Pay no attention to my camera randomly going in and out of focus…
My little camera is stacked on top of 20 PS2 games and I only have a hand mirror yeah. Not promising the best quality here but thought I’d give it a go. :P
Hi! I actually don’t section my hair off at all haha. I take the most saturated mixture of dye that I want and apply it directly to my roots. I then dilute that mixture with conditioner and apply it in between the dye I just put on and the rest of my previously dyed hair to help it blend in. I blend the layers of diluted dye with the saturated dye with my hands until they are seamless. Quick MS Paint visual:
Went through my archives and tagged all the hair advice/faq text posts and ask answers. If you’re curious about how I dyed my hair or the questions other people have asked about hair care, you can read everything HERE.
Haha my mom was worried about the same thing. In order to get it pastel pink instead of a salmony color, you’re going to have to go pretty light/tone out the yellow colors. I would advise going to Sally’s and getting a separate bleach powder and developer (Instead of going for a box dye). There are different developer ‘volumes’ that indicate how light the hair will be lifted. Vol 40 will lift your hair very quickly and powerfully! Mix enough to cover your hair of bleach and developer following the directions. Some hair cutting scissors from Sally’s are cheap so you might want to pick some of those up too. Before bleaching hair, trim for any split ends which will just travel further up your hair if left and bleached.
If you don’t have conditioner on parts you don’t need bleach (maybe preprocessed hair?) go ahead and put conditioner on them to protect it. The bleach will process faster close to your scalp because of the heat radiating from it, so quickly apply the bleach from the tips of your hair towards the scalp. I use my (gloved) hands and just kind of massage it into my hair. Using a hairdryer will speed up the processing time!
When it comes to timing, you really just have to watch your hair. I’ve had better results with leaving bleach in a little longer than washing it out too soon and having to rebleach later. I have medium/light brown hair and never need to leave the bleach on for more than a half hour. When my hair is light enough, shampoo the bleach out in the shower.
Since you want to go pastel pink, I’d recommend using a toner after bleaching (a little speck of purple dye in conditioner/a silver or grey hair shampoo) before dying it pink. You can also build up the layers of pink slowly with different amounts of pink in conditioner. To avoid it turning salmony, you can also add a dab of blue of purple dye to the pink. I typically leave the dye/conditioner mixture in for 3+ hours so it will stick for 4 weeks because I’m lazy about redying.
I would advise against using hottools when you can do without them to minimize damage :3 If you don’t mind minor roots, you shouldn’t need to rebleach your roots for about 2 months! (dying 2-3 times in between bleaching) Good luck! Let me know how it goes or if you have any more questions!
And even if your hair ends up a little damaged, it shouldn’t be anything a trim can’t help! Hair does grow back :3
