How to Bleach Wash Your Hair

Avoid washing your hair for at least 2 days before using a developer or bleach product as your natural oils help to protect your scalp and hair from damage.

Wear a front-opening shirt or robe (not your finest – any stray bleach wash drops will lighten material). Wet your hair and towel dry it before preparing your bleach wash mix.

Use the tint brush and bowl (provided in your Free Trial) to prepare your bleach wash.

Follow the instructions in your Bleach Wash Kit to mix your bleach wash in the correct ratio. Start by emptying the sachet of developer into your tint bowl. You will need to remove 15ml of developer (which is three level teaspoons) to get the correct volume to mix with the entire bleach sachet. Use your tint brush to mix the bleach and developer together.  To this mixture you add the same quantity of shampoo as the quantity of bleach and developer combined (use any regular shampoo you have at home for this and use the Colour Protection Shampoo we provide to wash your hair when you have rinsed out the bleach wash).

Add a little bit of water to your damp hair and then mix the bleach mix through your hair.

The shampoo blend will spread evenly and consistently through your wet hair, giving you a manageable application process, and more consistent outcomes than a regular bleach process.

Leave the mixture in for 10-20 minutes, depending on the colour result you are looking to achieve. Wash it out in the shower, then shampoo and condition your hair with the Colour Protection Shampoo and Conditioner provided in your Bleach Wash pack.

Leave your hair for at least 2 days if possible before recolouring, and you are now free to colour with a lighter colour option, as your hair would be free of darker pigments and your base colour level should be at least 1-2 levels lighter.

We recommend you select a colour which is lighter than your colour goal, because hair which has had a lightening process such as a bleach wash will over-absorb colour which leads to darker colour results.

A Word of Warning:

After a bleach wash your hair will be a bit drier and more porous, and we only recommend that you do a bleach wash a maximum of 1-2 times a year to lift out darker pigments. They should NOT be used for regular, repeated lightening (at all, please don’t do this!).

Also, if you have been pre-softening, or you plan to start pre-softening for better colour coverage on your stubborn greys, please DO NOT pre-soften when you recolour after your bleach wash. Skip pre-softening for the colour application after your bleach wash, and you can resume, or start pre-softening the next time you colour. Your hair will absorb more colour after the bleach wash, and there is no need for any additional steps or processes to soften the hair to aid colour absorption.

You need to colour with a lighter colour than your colour goal (and you almost always need cool colour tones) after a bleach wash, as your hair will over-absorb colour when you recolour after a lightening process such as a bleach wash. Please speak to our colourists about your colour and colour goals before bleach washing, and they can recommend a colour to use after a bleach wash.

    Love the colour, was exactly what I was hoping to achieve, have had a lot of compliments about it 😊

  • Christine A

    I love love love this system and the product is awesome. I specifically was after a hair colour that was cruelty free and looked great; The Shade nailed it! The regular order system sealed the deal for me, no longer do I have to try to remember in advance of looking in the mirror and thinking I need to get my hair done - this is delivered to me on time, every time!

  • Margaret T

    My home colour experience has been great! It is no trouble for me to do it myself and the colour turns out just how I would like it to be - Sienna Brown. I have used "The Shade" now for about 6 years and am thrilled with the results. My (49) daughter also uses the same colour and finds it easy to use. My photo is not my best as I was looking at a Birthday card I was given. I am (74) with wrinkles but my head of hair shows up well. Margaret

    Colours are beautiful and my hair feels great. The Team are easy to contact with good advice provided. I'm able to change my colour and the frequency of my subscription easily. Been using for over a year now.

  • Lauren G

    Perfect colour and application tools! Love it! My husband applied it and even though we made a mess, it was an easy process and the colour came off my skin with the barrier oil easily!

  • TyAnn S

    Oh my god so lovely it was done and no mess to clean up :) lovely colour too

  • Deon D

    I love this hair colour. It doesn't build up over time like other hair colours requiring you to re-set after a while as the shade of your hair gets darker and darker. This one gives me perfect colour every time and gives my hair bounce.

  • Jarmila H

    I am happy with the product. I am using it for more than a year - no reaction/allergy. I was colouring my hair myself during lockdowns but as the various lockdowns were lifted, my hairdresser does it for me. I have longish curly hair and it is much easier if she, with her experience, colours my hair. Easy product to use otherwise and I recommend it.

  • Karen F

    Came across The Shade during COVID lockdown in QLD 2020. So glad that I did, the colour match is exactly the colour I love. Great grey coverage and so gentle on my scalp. Definitely recommend anyone tries it

  • Audrey G

    I love The Shade hair dyes! Very gentle, no stinging scalp. Hope you do a streaking kit with cap one day, would be great! I have to buy that from another company after I do my roots with your dark ash blonde.

  • Jennifer D

    Absolutely loving the coverage and ease of using the Shades products

  • Mary A

    I tried The Shade on the recommendation of a friend. It was easy to submit my query and photo and I received my colour consultation in no time. Communication regarding the delivery of my order was excellent and I received it promptly (given current postal delays). I was SO impressed with the product. It was so easy to use and I was beyond delighted with the result. The colour looks great and my hair feels amazing. I'm so pleased that I won't be going back to salon colouring in a hurry, even though we're now out of lockdown.

    😁 Ladies..one of the best products I have ever used, Colour is superb, everything is in the Kit, easy to use, will be purchasing again, well done, great product, that actually works 👏👍

  • Naomi M

    Great product and gives me a fabulous colour People don’t believe I put in myself

  • Eugenia H

    Shade was a great colour , easy to use and left my hair soft and shiny

  • Wendy A

    I am very happy with how my hair colour turned out. Looks great and covered my greys and old colour perfectly. I was a bit disappointed that I sent a question in to the colourists and never got a reply, but I went ahead with colouring anyway and was happy with the result. Also, because I have very short hair, and because I read on The Shade's blog about using half a tube of colour and half a sachet of developer to cover greys, I did consider doing that but decided against it because I hadn't used the product before. When I squeezed out the colour, it was all pearlescent white except for the last two CM which were brown so now I'm not sure if it's actually advisable to use half a tube of colour, and half a sachet of developer, or if that would affect the result

  • Cristal M

The product is so easy to use. The colour selection is amazing backed up by excellent customer support who answered every question and offered excellent advice. I have been using it for over 2yrs and the colour I have is closest to my natural colour. It makes me feel like me again.
