While, if you have some spare time, do it by yourself, using the ingredients in your own kitchen such as oil, avocados, eggs, bananas, honey, etc. For the mask, one or twice week is suggested.
Dark hair might require several times of bleaching so after the initial time, apply a generous amount of conditioner to make up the lost moisture. Don’t only shampooing your hair without conditioner because shampoo only will strip out your hair’s moisture. Let your hair rest for at least 4 days before the next bleaching.
