I am not a professional at all, so i do not why i decided to bleach my relaxed hair on my own. Well i do know why, trying to save money. I have red highlights and how i achieved that was going to a professional, letting them highlight my hair and then i go to sally's and buy manic panic whatever color i choose. By the way, manic panic is a awesome semi permanent dye that is not harsh on your hair. well it was time for a touch up, so i decided it to do it myself. I bought the bleach from sally's and bleached my hair. Big mistake. I fried my hair. I never knew what the term meant until now. my hair texture was dry brittle and breaking off bad. i didn't know what to do. I was going to pay $180 for a keratin treatment at a salon. But then i came across this product. $180 compared to $13. So i went home and started this treatment. By the time i got finish with the first step, my hair, the part i bleached, was an ugly yellow/brown color because it strip the temporary color out of my hair. After i flat iron it i wasn't happy at all. My hair was stiffed weighed down, it smelled terrible with no life at all. Plus the part i bleached was this ugly brownish yellow.. I couldn't wait until the 48 hours was up so i could wash my hair. matter fact i cheated, i washed maybe 5 hours before the 48 hours was up. i washed it using their shampoo and conditioner.. then i put my manic panic vampire red in my hair. before i blowed dried it, i used the break away serum, and the flat iron spray. as i was flat iron my hair, (I bought the john freida flat iron, which is good but as flaws) i would rub a little of fantastic sam's nourishment serum in my hair so it wouldn't be so dry. i took my time to flat iron it because i am trying to go natural and my roots are awful. The last thing i did was spray the shimmering keratin oil in my hair. The end results was amazing. my hair was silky smooth. My hair was gorgeous..the bleached part looks healthier then before. it still is damaged but i know using this product will help it become healthier over time.
