Bleaching your natural beard!

Posted by Nova Santa , 02 October 2009 · 6,675 views

I continue to read about bleaching your natural beard, but no instructions. Can anyone help with instructions about bleaching a beard?




Do a search; there are multiple threads regarding bleaching hair and beards.
I do it myself. This is for a guy with a dark brown or black beard. Mine is naturally salt and pepper, mostly pepper. Point is, it's probably more than a blond needs. Products available at a Beauty Supply store, one that is used by professionals to purchase products. Here is the recipe: Six ounces of 40 strength peroxide and one package of Loreal Quick Blue, applied thoroughly to dry hair, leave on for one hour. Wash that out and dry your hair. Then apply a mixture of one bottle Miss Clairol Arctic Blond (20D) 4 ounces of that 40 peroxide and add red/gold color corrector plus to adjust the color from yellow to white. Wow, is that Santa looking back at me in the mirror? This itches when it is on your skin and it will be in order to go all the way to the root. You'll want to have something to take your mind elsewhere while you let this work.

Warning! The bleaching is forever for the hair that gets bleached. Doing it to white takes two hours in the strongest peroxide. Hair grows about a half inch per month. If you just cut it all off to go back to natural, you won't have enough hair to play Santa for a couple of years. Dying it to white is not only irritating, it will make your hair brittle if you keep it up, which means it will break off. I dye mine back to it's natural color after Christmas. That only takes fifteen minutes in 20 strength peroxide, no bleaching needed. Then Santa reappears about Thanksgiving. Remember this, once your hair and beard are white, you are Santa where ever you go, who ever you are with. Always be mindful that children will watch you intently believing they are seeing THE MAN! When you look like Santa, you must be Santa, or some child's fantasy will be destroyed forever. Have fun! Being Santa one month a year is a blast.

Cindylu (one of our members) is an excellent source of information on this. She is one of the best!
Santa Nova,

First of all, disregard Santa RIP's advice. I am currently working with him to correct some problems he is having.

Next, if you will send me your e-mail address I'll be happy to send you my two booklets on hair care; grooming, styling AND Bleaching.
These are the booklets that I had left over from my workshop I did at Celebrate Santa this past march.
