    Homemade hair bleaching solution

    For my swim team, we always bleach our hair at the end of the season. It stays bleached for about 5 days, then on the sixth day we give ourselves freaky looking hair cuts like mohawks (spelling?) and other crazy things, which is for 1 school day. Then that night we shave our heads.

    Anyhow, I don't want to spend money at walmart to buy one of those bleaching kits. I've searched extensively on google for homemade hair bleach solution instructions, but came up with nothing.

    I'm thinking of just taking some hydrogen peroxide and putting it straight into my hair.

    Does anyone know of good ways to bleach your hair using a homemade solution? It doesn't have to look stylish or anything like that, it's only for 5 days. I just don't want to mess my scalp up or anything by putting bad chemicals in my hair....

    thanks

    Are you serious?!

    It's when you use "bleach" to take all of the color out of your hair, giving a blond/white look

    ... anyone else see a small logic flaw here?

    well it says H202 on the bottle, so its only 1 oxygen atom per molecule away from water

    Anyways, I called some hair salons. Some say pretty much that I'm crazy to do that, some say it is common and will work.

    It's weird I can get such different responses -- these were from "Sally Beauty Supply" store at different locations.

    And nitrous oxide is only one oxygen atom per molecule away from nitrogen gas. Your point?

    I've never bleached my hair, but if you went with Hydrogen Peroxide, you'd probably want to dilute it a bit first.

    hydrogen peroxide is too strong in my opinion, you could potentially ruin your hair. just go out and buy the solution.

    A mate of mine has done it a few times. But then again, his old dear is a hairdresser. As long as you don't leave the stuff on your barnet too long, you should be fine.

    Well, carbon monoxide is one atom per molecule away from CO2.

    Why do you need to bleach ur hair for swimming? Is there a sign that says "Only blondes allowed in the pool" ?

    And as for your H2O2, its one oxygen away fro H2O, true, but that extra oxygen makes a huge difference in chemistry. e.g. H2O2 is highly explosive.

    You can make homemade solution from this remedy:
    1 kg chicken shiet + 1bottle of lemon juice = homemade bleach

    lemon juice in water---spray head---sit in sun = lighter hair

    2 cups water----2 capfuls peroxide---in hair 60 seconds and rinse = bleached hair

    Keep in mind it comes in a box and costs money for a reason, just because it works it will still "burn" your hair.

    I really don't think sticking hydrogen peroxide on your head is a good idea; Its incredably reactive stuff and without knowing what concentration you are supposed to use you could really damage yourself.

    Just buy one of the kits they aren't that expensive.

    If you do use the peroxide be damn carefull to keep it out of your eyes.
