olya burlay: Hey I really enjoyed your video, very informative and your good at explaining everything.
Also your really gorgeous!!!
Don't stop doing what you do cause your good at it
AutumnBleuReview: Any olive oil will do just fine. You could also use coconut oil, shea butter oil, etc. The reason for adding the olive oil and aloe vera is to help protect the hair from the harshness of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, and to also keep the hair from being stripped dry, and to help condition the hair for it to be healthier through and after the process is done, and to also help create a paste like texture to be able to better apply the active ingredients to the hair more evenly and easier.
giantsintrees: It doesnt have to be extra virgin olive oil does it? Like, any kind will do?
AutumnBleuReview: Hi Leah. This remedy won't work without the use of hydrogen peroxide. That is the main active ingredient that actually lightens the hair. All the other ingredients are supporting ingredients for texture to be able to more evenly apply the mixture to the hair, protection of the hair during the process and for maintained hair health during this process of lightening the hair.This remedy is considered by many to be much less harsh than store bought hair lighteners & dyes. Do a strand test first.
Leah Shung: can u use it without the peroxide!
AutumnBleuReview: lol it works fast
AutumnBleuReview: Try leaving the mix on your hair for less amount of time while activating it with heat. So cut the time in half. I spent about 30 minutes to get my hair lighter & I got 3 different bleneded shades (hard to see in the photos) with a yellow goldish blonde, caramel, & some reddish brown color in the back.You could also try lightening your hair to whatever the lightest shade you get & then tint your hair chocolate brown with either Clairol Hair Color Tint (temporary color) or Dark Brown Henna mix.
Ermoni Smith: If I wanted my hair to be more of a chocolate brown color using your method how would I do that? I have sisterlocks and would like to have a more brown color.
AutumnBleuReview: It works the same day. It's an hour process on average. So no worries. Just make sure not to wait until the day before your wedding to be on the safe side in case you don't get the results you were looking for. Most are usually happy with their results however. You're responsible though for your results. Best of luck to you and congrats on your upcoming wedding :-D
Randi Thornton: Will this work fast? my wedding is in 11 days I don't have time to do it for weeks!!!!
AutumnBleuReview: Hey Ashley, Dollar Tree is actually one of my favorite stores! :-D LoL You're so right, I did forget to mention that the Dollar Tree does sometimes carry a few of the ingredients I mentioned here in the video. I know for sure I have seen Hydrogen Peroxide (though it's actually cheaper at Walmart $0.76) , Baking Soda (though it too is cheaper at Walmart & local grocery stores for $0.42 to $0.52) and sometimes Olive Oil (though not 100% quality & blended with other oils) can be found there too.
AutumnBleuReview: Hi Linda. I'm well aware of that this is an old remedy. I add Olive Oil, and Aloe Vera Gel (some choose to add honey) for the purpose of 1) Making this remedy less harsh on hair while still effective 2) Hair conditioning purposes, as Olive Oil (has vitamin E and Omega Oils in it naturally) is healthy for hair, and so is Aloe Vera (good for healing among other health purposes). Honey is optional. Known to soften/condition hair. 3) For Texture 4) Moisturizing, to prevent dry brittle hair :-)
ashleyhopeam: Haven't you ever heard of dollar tree!
Linda Cox: what is the honey and olive oil for we been doing this seen 1970s and probly before that so please what is those being used for please let me no
AutumnBleuReview: You should be fine to do your whole head. Just make sure to always deep condition your hair at least once a week and avoid using a lot of heat to style your hair. If you do use some heat to style your hair, make sure to use thermal conditioning leave-in hair styling product before using a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron to style your hair. These things should keep your hair safe an healthy.Pin the hair you already lightened to keep it separate from the rest of your hair if you want.
ambermarir0827: Okay so I tried this on the bottom of my hair to see if it would work. Ive washed it out & conditioned it now I want to do my whole head. Not sure whether I should wait or not since I only did a small section. ?
AutumnBleuReview: Interesting idea Lydia. Thanks for sharing! :-) I might try that and see how it works out. I use aloe vera and extra virgin olive oil for conditioning as well aside keeping the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda from being harsh on the hair.
lydia lee: You could use honey instead of aloe vera and extra virgin olive oil
AutumnBleuReview: I am not familiar with the chemistry potential of substituting baking powder with the use of baking soda instead.Therefore I won't recommend it.As I do not know how that variation mix would actually affect your hair nor the results you would get.If you try it, then do a strand test only on either a few strands of hair or test it on a very small hidden section of your hair (whichever you prefer). However, I am not responsible for whatever results you get. I hope all goes well.Baking soda is $0.50
Jas Renay: Can you substitute baking soda with baking powder?
I mixed it and it fissed...
AutumnBleuReview: This mixture will still lighten your hair without adding the aloe vera and olive oil to it. I added aloe vera to the mixture to help make the lightening process less harsh on the hair (to help prevent damage) and to keep the hair healthy. Aloe vera has healing properties to it and can be found in many beauty products for hair and skin.
mirandah fleury: what will happen if you dont use aloe ?
AutumnBleuReview: Yes it is, if you mean if this mixture can be rinsed out of your hair (it can). In regards to if the lightening effect will wash away once it lightens your hair....no the lightened hair will remain the same light color no matter how many times you wash your hair after this process.
avalontheband1234: Is it washable
AutumnBleuReview: It depends on how thick or not your hair is and the length of your hair. I only did a quarter section of my entire full head of hair. I have long hair but it is not thick. I only used about 1/4 of the size of the plastic container/cup you see in this video and the second video of this hair lightening process. You may need to use at least 3/4 cup of a cup to a full cup to make sure your entire head of hair is properly soaked in this hair lightening mixture. This was experimental for me.
Taylor Johnson: How much of the paste do I have to make if I want to lighten my whole hair???
Melissa Storr: Yes. my hair is damaged but that dosent really maen i can`t try this method ... i use hot tools to make me look nice for school etc. i will help it get better during the summer. what really kills it is bleach. so this would be better for people who have bleached their hair and dont look forward to doing it again
AutumnBleuReview: Sounds pretty :-)
1stStorydweller: I have black african american textured hair. It turned my hair a honey brown color.
AutumnBleuReview: Thanks for sharing the info! Makes a lot of sense as to why the honey & cinnamon remedy was not as effective as I hoped. I'll try it again without the lemon juice added. :-)
alodocios1: also from research, in order to release the hydrogen peroxide properties of honey, honey's 3.5 ph needs to be lightened to between a ph of 5-8 and it needs sodium. You put lemon juice in your mixture which lowered the ph of your mixture. You may need to take the lemon out of your mixture. The lemon juice is blocking your peroxide release. Science major and nurse so chemistry is one of my things. The water will raise the ph of honey most conditioners have sodium. The lemon did you in.
AutumnBleuReview: Honestly, I don't advise anyone should use shampoo in this remedy at all. I'm not sure why you chose to. But hopefully it won't cause any damage and major drying to your hair as it could most potentially do. The reason I used aloe vera gel and olive oil in my hair lightening mixture was to help prevent damage and drying with the hair lightening process.
merelyn Camarena: i used shampoo instead of the oik and gel...
AutumnBleuReview: Aloe Vera Gel can be found in the Beauty department of the store,usually where all the body lotions are (also usually can be found wherever the sun tan lotions are as well) in stores like Walmart, Target, etc.,
cdnbrowngirl: which section do u get the aloe vera from?
