From start to finish...you ready?! She had 1.5 years worth of BLACK BOX on her head..along with a recent purple she had also applied. Her hair is very coarse, feels like a wool rope by nature. But tough!
I did two extractors! Olaplex treatment. Totally lightened her. Olaplex treatment after again. Then I applied a toner to allow her to go a week with decent hair. This took a total of 7 hours! At $50/hr, her first session would’ve been $400. 💢Day two!
After she was back in my chair, I did 1 extractor to remove the previous toner. Olaplex treatment. Then I applied lightener to an orange banded area. Toner. Olaplex treatment. Which is the last photo of the first 6. The toner was to dark after her hair pulled it due to her porosity, which after we decided to leave the integrity of her hair.
This took another 5 hours. Which would’ve been $250.
Last day was a miracle! I had her wait a month to allow her hair to rest, because when doing such a transformation, you need to let your hair REST!! When she arrive her hair appeared a lot lighter than the previous time, so I applied a type of remover and the toner was removed. Followed by an olaplex treatment. After her hair was blow dried, I did one more lightening session with her hair, with olaplex. This allowed her hair to officially reach an even lightness to achieve what we wanted..after the last olaplex treatment, I blow dried, applied her root color and midsection color. TA-DA!
The last session was 5 hours and would’ve been another $250.
Total session time - 17 hours.
Total cost - $850.
Now this was an experiment to show you what it means to want to be blonde, AFTER! You’ve applied black box to your head. It isn’t pretty. It’s time, money, and commitment!
