Hair is our crowning glory. Long, beautiful, shiny hair..who doesn’t want it? Hair is one such part of our body that plays a vital role in enhancing our physical beauty. And that’s probably the reason we are more into beautifying our hair these days. Apart from using natural ways to have long, thick tresses, we sometimes take help of lots of styling tools and styling products to enhance the beauty of our hair as well as our overall look. Hair color has always been very popular and these days bleaching of hair is also drawing attention. Bleaching is basically removing the pigment from hair strands. Check out my post on how to make bleach for hair at home.
Hair bleaching can be done for your entire hair or you can choose which part you want to bleach. When you are bleaching certain parts of your hair, it’s called highlighting. Highlighting adds a great dimension to the natural hue of hair. Asian people mostly have dark brown or black hair. We often opt for coloring our hair to break the monotony. But because of the natural shades of our hair, coloring options are pretty limited. So what to do? Bleach your hair. If you can add darker pigmentation to your hair, why not lighten the pigmentation? And for this you don’t have to break the bank at an expensive salon. In this post, we have shared how to make bleach for hair at home.
