Scab After Bleaching Hair: What to Do

Most bleaching units lift hair by altering the pH level of the hair strands to a high of 8.5-9.5. Usually, the pH level on your skin and hair hovers around 4.5-5. When you apply a substance on your skin as high as 9.5, you will essentially cause a chemical burn. Bleaching kits are particularly dangerous, because the moisture in the cream delays the inflammatory response, allowing the chemical to work for longer on the skin and hair before you feel the excruciating pain. Usually, a strong tingle is a sign that it is too late - and now you have burn mark that will eventually scab.

If you noticed that you have a chemical burn, the best thing to do is simply leave it alone. Try not to use heavily scented shampoos, conditioners, and hair product. Do not manipulate the area or touch the chemical burn. This will help reduce the chance of scarring. An ice pack immediately after the injury will help with swelling from the gnarly burn.

How Do You Use Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser? Mineral Oil and Under eye Wrinkles

Pond's Cream Cleanser and Pond's Cold cream are old, antiquated products that have a cult following. I've heard so much about Pond's products for quite some time, especially amongst my aging aunts. They've all sung about how moisturizing and gentle Pond's Cream Cleanser and Pond's Cold Cream are. As someone in their mid 20's, I already have smooth skin - and I would like to keep it that way. One of the more difficult areas for me is the undereye area. I never knew how I was supposed to clean and take care of my eyelids, which are typically the first place to show signs of aging. Cleansers with sulfates, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid did wonders for my face, but would dry out the sensitive undereye area. But if I didn't wash my eyelids, gunk will gather up, and I would have crusty eyelids. What is a boy to do? Wash their eyelids with plain water, and maybe use a saline solution for removing any eye boogers. I finally did some research on Ponds and have used their Pond's Cream Cleanser and Pond's Cold Cream for several weeks - and here's my verdict (I love it).

I am not afraid of chemicals in my skincare products. I can conceptualize the fact that some

Blue Shampoo for Brassy Hair

What Causes Brassy Hair? Brassy hair is mainly caused by a chemical reaction between the ammonia, peroxide mixture, and the keratin bonds in the hair. As the ammonia lifts the color from the hair, it also deposits a slight orange tone into the hair strand. Over-processed hair or overly damaged hair is particularly prone to brassiness. There are many causes for the aggravation of brassy hair - pool chlorine, exposure to the sun, ocean water, and mineral deposits can all increase brassiness in hair. Blue shampoo for brassy hair can fix that.

How To Prevent Brassy Hair
Prevent brassy hair from occurring in the first place by bleaching only healthy hair. Nurture porous hair because this type of hair can easily come off as brassy once the bleaching process is done. Now if you have naturally straight hair, then you are a great candidate for hair bleaching due to your straight keratin bonds. Extremely wavy hair or curly hair is prone to brassiness because it is naturally more porous than straighter hair types.

Extremely dark hair is also prone to brassiness because the ammonia will have to stay longer on the
