Avoid Bleach Overlap With This Quick Technique

How To Avoid The Lightener Overlap

1. Using a foil, place lightener on the hair that’s grown out. “One reason for separating everything out into foils is that it not only allows for maximum lift, it also keeps strong products away from already compromised ends.”


2. When you reach the end of the grown-out section, backweave out the existing lowlights.


3. Lay the dark pieces on top of the already-lightened hair and place lightener on those pieces, leaving out the blonde hairs at the bottom of the foil.


4. Place another foil on top, fold it in half and fold in the sides.
