AutumnBleuReview: To Asia Mendes: Make sure to added a little extra hydrogen peroxide to
your mixture, and please make sure to apply heat to your hair (sit under a
hot air hair dryer) in order to ACTIVATE the actual chemical lightening
process to the hair.
AutumnBleuReview: To shaee pretty: Yes, your hair can be wet while doing this process.
AutumnBleuReview: To ChibiKitten: No, this process would not ruin your hair no matter the
texture of hair.
AutumnBleuReview: To Christina Boitnott: No, your hair does not have to be wet while doing
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
Randi Thornton: Will this work fast? my wedding is in 11 days I don't have time to do it
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.
avalontheband1234: Is it washable
Jas Renay: Can you substitute baking soda with baking powder? I mixed it and it
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. :-)
AutumnBleuReview: Sounds pretty :-)
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.
merelyn Camarena: i used shampoo instead of the oik and gel...
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: 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: 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.
ashleyhopeam: Haven't you ever heard of dollar tree!
Taylor Johnson: How much of the paste do I have to make if I want to lighten my whole
ChibiKitten: Would this ruin my hair? I got natural Curly hair
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
lydia lee: You could use honey instead of aloe vera and extra virgin olive oil
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
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.
Christina Boitnott: Do you have to wet your hair before applying
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.
giantsintrees: It doesnt have to be extra virgin olive oil does it? Like, any kind will do?
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.
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 :-)
AutumnBleuReview: Thank you so much Olya Burlay, you're so kind! I'm glad you enjoy the
videos and find them to be informative. :-D
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.
1stStorydweller: I have black african american textured hair. It turned my hair a honey
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.
llagas flor: wow
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
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.,
AutumnBleuReview: lol it works fast
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.
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
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.
shaee pretty: Can your hair be wet ? While doing this.
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. ?
cdnbrowngirl: which section do u get the aloe vera from?
Devon Lee: what will happen if you dont use aloe ?
