How to bleach lace frontal:
Step 1: Mix Ingredients, to create thick paste (not loose). You’ll want to make enough to cover all the knots.
Step 2: Carefully apply mixture to the frontal by patting the mixture gently onto the closure. You’ll want to do this until the entire closure is covered. Be careful not to bleach any baby hairs, etc.
Step 3: Let sit for 40 mins (or more), until knots are honey blonde color.
Step 4: Rinse with purple shampoo to remove brassy color and stop the bleaching process.
We noticed not all frontals don’t bleach the same, so make sure to keep an eye on your frontal during bleaching times. Also don’t over saturate the lace front as this could bleach the hair, and take some time to reverse.
