Doing Roots White
This shows how I did a root touch up on my white hair. First pic – here’s the stuff I used. Indola Rapid Blond and Indola Profession 30 Volume peroxide.Also in the photo is a tint brush, some Special Effects White Toner and a very pointy tail comb. I got the powder bleach cheap because they’d priced it wrong in the shop (got £8 off!). I’d been using it with generic 30 volume peroxide with okay results. I thought I’d try the matching developer to see if it made a difference. I mix my bleach 1:2 powder:peroxide so it’s runny but not too runny. The thinner it is the slower I find it goes off. Since I was doing my roots a different way than usual (usually section it before starting to bleach) I thought I’d do a photo story.
Pic 2 – I had exactly one month’s regrowth. I split my hair into 4 chunks – halfed it down the middle and then took a parting from the crown to the top of my ears. I then applied bleach to the partings.
It’s gone a little bit purple but I don’t mind (probably because I left it on for half an hour instead of 15 mnutes). This photo shows up all the bits that didn’t get enough toner. Next time I’ll section if properly and apply the toner evenly. After one wash the purple has gone! This photo is in normal day light without flash!
