These bleaching tips will work on any hair type.
Now, for the main event:Teen Vogueasked Dorsey for his step-by-step guide to bleaching hair, and what he gave us did not disappoint. So here's the lowdown on the best way to bleach hair at home, no matter your hair’s texture.What’s the first thing Dorsey does when bleaching hair? “I like to coat the hair with natural oil,” he says. Grab your fave and let it sit for five to 10 minutes before bleaching to allow your strands to absorb the nutrients.

Secure your sections with any clips or hair ties you have on hand.

From there, don’t just apply the product to your hair willy-nilly; Dorsey advises beginning toward the middle of the hair shaft, which he says goes from an inch below the roots to an inch above the ends. “You want to dip your application brush and get an amount the size of a licorice slice on the ends, and you just want to pat down [on the hair]... You’re gonna take your hand and work the product, only in the center of the hair, to make sure that it’s saturated. The reason why you want to leave the roots and the ends out is because the roots process fast. The ends are very old, they’re fragile, so you want to be very, very careful.” Once the midsection of the entire quad is saturated, repeat the process on your remaining three sections of hair.

That’s when you’ll go back to the roots. “Once your hair starts to process, you want to go back in and you’re going to go through and get the roots,” he says. “You’re going to do the same process, moving quickly through the application, painting the roots on. Make sure that everything is saturated in all four quads, and then taking your hand, smooth that from your roots to your ends.” That’s right, you don’t even need to apply the product to your ends! Just redistribute the leftovers from the roots all the way down.

What that looks like is you’re going to see an orangey, reddish tone. Some people like to stop there, and then you can use a toner to cancel out the warmth. If you’d like to see a cooler blonde, you’re going to let the bleaching process up to almost a level 9. What that looks like is almost like the inside of a banana. You’re going to see a very faint yellow, and that’s when you know it’s time to take your process down.”Read more: Teen Vogue »

Wigging Out During the PandemicI have very nice hair. Coveted hair sometimes! Hair that people make a “big deal” about. Once, when my hair was down my back, all black and very long, a woman stopped her car mid-traffic in downtown Washington, D.C. to ask me what products I used. I told her whatever my stylist uses because I’m too lazy to do my own very thick, very “I do what I want to do” frizzy hair.
