Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical that you can find in your local pharmacy and use to lighten your hair. This article will discuss how to use hydrogen peroxide to lighten your hair. It will also discuss the risks associated with using hydrogen peroxide, including damage to the scalp and the potential for discoloration of clothing or bedding. Hydrogen peroxide is not a permanent solution so it cannot be used as an alternative for bleach over time. Hair color may grow out after a few months, but this does not mean that you have stopped damaging your hair from excess oxidation caused by the chemicals in hydrogen peroxide- only that it has grown out enough for you to notice!

How To Lighten Your Hair With Hydrogen Peroxide?
This is a very inexpensive way to lighten your hair as well as an easy process. If you are looking for a new look or want your color to last longer, this may be the answer you have been looking for!
The first step is to purchase a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. The higher the concentration, the more dramatic your results will be. Most lighteners come in 3 and 6 volumes and you should choose one that either has no volume listed (in other words it will be 10%, 15%) or go with the lowest option. For this article, we will use 6 volume hydrogen peroxide. You can find it at any drugstore or beauty supply store.
It is always best to test out the strength on a small area to see if you are sensitive before applying it all over your head. Simply wash your hair and pat dry, then part it into sections and apply the lightener to each section. Make sure you keep it away from your scalp and eyes. Let the solution stay on for 15 minutes to get results that will last for weeks.
After waiting 15 minutes, wash out the hair lightener with warm water and follow up with a mild shampoo. Apply a deep conditioner and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing again with cool water. Once your hair is dry, style it as usual and enjoy your new color!
The process of bleaching hair can be very dangerous. It’s important to know that hair lightening simply reduces the pigment that is already in your hair. If you are doing this at home, it is extremely important to wear gloves and safety glasses and keep the application away from all skin and your eyes. Bleach is a very strong chemical that can do permanent damage to your skin, scalp, or eyes if it comes in contact with them. If you would like to lighten your hair at home on a regular basis, be sure to speak with a professional about doing so safely on your own.
