How old do you have to be to buy bleach for hair?
Children under the age of 16 should never be offered any hair colour or foils service, including initial allergy testing. But why not? The reason is that all legal colouring products used in the UK are labelled as “not intended for use on persons under the age of 16”.
Is it better to bleach your hair wet or dry?
Bleaching wet hair is ideal for creating a subtle lightening effect. However, it’s best to let a colorist do this to your hair. Since your hair is more fragile when wet, extra precautions need to be taken when applying bleach.
Will hair fall out after bleaching?
