Facial Hair Bleach

This effective cream hair bleach is both inexpensive and easy to prepare.

Equipment:

  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon

Ingredients:

  • Hydrogen peroxide (3 percent solution)
  • Ammonia
  • White henna

Yield: Enough for one application

Measure 2 tablespoons of 3 percent solution hydrogen peroxide into a mixing bowl; make sure the peroxide is fresh and at full strength. Add 10 drops of ammonia and stir in enough white henna to produce a smooth paste, not too thick or too runny.

Apply the bleach to the hair and leave it on for about 15 minutes, or until the desired shade is achieved. Rinse off the bleach thoroughly. Complete the treatment by washing thoroughly.
