Well, you gotta lose something to gain something right? For a pastel color to pop, you’ll need the lightest possible level of bleach. Now, if you’re a beginner, we suggest you take professional help, cos you don’t wanna mess up your first ever hair color. Pastel colors show up best on a light blonde base or highlights so you'd require a Level 9 Bleach. Bleaching to this level has it’s own pros and cons so do check out our blog called Bleaching 101 before you give in to your pastel color cravings.

Maintaining your Magical Hair
Say no to heat!
Even using the best hair care products won’t help if you use too much heat or style your pastel hair too much. We’d say keeping your looks natural would be the best option. So instead of blow drying your hair, you gotta let it air dry. And you’ll have to say goodbye to your best friends, the hair straightener, curler and other styling tools.
A Cold Shower
Ensure that you wash your hair with cold water, it’ll also help you tame the frizz caused due to heavy bleaching and won’t let the color fade faster. Be kind to your hair and do ‘em a favour by not washing them with hot water.
Mask it up!
Add a hair mask to your hair care routine once a week. Consider using sulfate free products along with the hair mask. Treat your hair with care and we can guarantee that your pastel look will have heads turning everywhere.
