How To Bleach Bath

Colour Remover's Bleach Free, Damage Free formula gently cleans out Permanent Hair Colour pigment from your Hair. Bleach Bath should be used as a last option.

Bleach bathing is a softer, step by step Bleaching process that is used to remove Colour one shade at a time or Lighten your Hair gradually.

Although Bleach Bathing is gentler than a full strength Bleaching process Bleach Bathing is not recommended for beginners and should still be practiced with caution.

The Process

Step 1: Apply To Towel Dried Hair

Using gloves, apply the mixture to towel dried Hair, starting at ends and working up, leaving your roots to last. Use a wide tooth comb to comb through the Hair. Clip the Hair up and cover with cling wrap or shower cap.

Step 2: Develop

Watch Hair closely and check every 5 minutes. To check the Colour, scrape a bit of mixture off the Hair.
Do not leave mixture on longer than 45 minutes.

Step 3: Rinse Your Hair

When the desired Colour has been achieved, or the maximum time has elapsed, rinse Hair thoroughly.

If continuing with Colour DO NOT condition, otherwise condition heavily or do a treatment.
