Bleached Hair, Don’t Care!

I’m going on year 10+ of bleaching my naturally black Asian hair and I should probably let it go back to it’s natural color but I’m just used to my color, I’m not ready to let it go. Biotera helps to keep my hair looking silky, as if it hasn’t been fried 50 thousand times! It’s difficult because I have is that I have rough, damaged hair with a lot of breakage but yet I need intensive hair care. Certain treatments can weigh my hair down, which is an issue because I have super-fine hair and volume is always an issue.

 

 

Basically when your hair gets bleached, the product destroys your hair proteins to remove the color. The side effects for this gorgeous new color are dryness, lots of breakage and frizziness. Luckily Biotera’s Ultra Repair line totally replenishes and rejuvenates my hair! I use the Biotera Ultra Repair Shampoo, Biotera Ultra Repair Conditioner, Biotera Ultra Repair Leave-In Damage Eliminator. The shampoo is very gentle on your hair and works to heal rough, porous, and damaged hair. It specifically targets your hair’s weakest areas and in just one use it can double the softness and the strength of the individual strands.

 

 

I follow it up with the Biotera Ultra Repair conditioner after rinsing my hair of shampoo thoroughly. While I wash the rest of my body, I’ll leave conditioner in my hair for about 1-3 minutes so that my hair can soak in all the goodness. After that, I’ll give my hair another good rinse.

I absolutely love the Biotera Ultra Repair Leave-In Damage Eliminator because after my shower, I can just apply a small amount into my hair and style as usual. It makes it so easy for me to deep conditioner my hair without missing a beat in my busy schedule. Another bonus is that I dab it into my dry hair when I have any excessive frizziness and it conditions my hair while making it look nice and silky!

All the products are totally free of silicone and parabens and SLS/SLES Sulfates*. The line features sunflower and coconut oil.

When to Use High Lift Hair Color

There seems to be a bit of confusion over what exactly high lift hair color is.

Think of high lifts as the rocket engine in your hair color arsenal. They are the strongest colors in your palette. Meaning they will give you maximum amount of lightening plus tonal deposit. High lifts are not bleach, bleach will lighten hair the most but has no tonal refining capabilities.

AGEbeautiful has two high lift categories that are essential to your dispensary.

AGEbeautiful High Lifts, which have three shades: Neutral, Gold and brass banishing Ash, delivering up to 5 levels of lift with pigment packed tonal deposit.

Want to fight brass as you lighten? Ash is your go-to.

Thinking of enhancing the warmth in your hair as you go brighter? Gold will get you there.

And brand new to the AGEbeautiful family… the Ultra Bond Hyper Lift shades. These heavy hitters not only give exceptional color but fill your hair with bond building technology.

Here’s how I’m loving using these shades!

 

 

Beachy Balayage

For the ultimate sun kissed, super natural highlight work, I love using high lift colors.

Just recently I was working on Lila.

Lila is a natural level 6 (light brown) head of gorgeous hair, which we wanted to add natural, sun-kissed brightness to.

I simply mixed together AGEbeautiful High Lift Neutral with 40 Volume and free hand painted onto selected strands. The results were gorgeous and natural!

 

Hyper Lightener

Now this is what I call “the luxury lightener” because it gives you ample amount of lift.

A touch of tonal control and a decadently delicious consistency.

Simply mix your usual formula of high lift and sprinkle a touch of your favorite powder or crème lightener into it.

 

Here’s the luxe formula:

2oz. of AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Hyper Lift Clear and 1/8oz. AGEbeautiful Crème Lightener with 4oz. of 40 Volume

 

Color Cleanse

Want a quick way to remove unwanted color build up?

Using a high lift as an express all over wash will remove the unwanted tones gently and effectively.

I mix together AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Hyper Lift Clear with double 20 Volume for 10 minutes on the areas of the hair I want to softly lighten.

The beauty of this is that you are not only cleansing the hair but loading it up with all of

that advanced bond-building action from the Ultra Bond Hyper Lift family.

 

 

Blushed Rose

Have a blonde, platinum or silver base color that would like a kiss of rose?

Mix AGEbeautiful High Lift Ash with a drop of AGEbeautiful Permanent 5RV.

 

 

Believable Blonde

I love to use a high lift and then an ash from a level 7 or 8 when I want to lighten a lot but still have tonal control.

 

Try:

2oz. AGEbeautiful High Lift Neutral & 1/8oz. AGEbeautiful 8A Permanent with 4oz. 40 Volume

This is ideal for level 6 or higher base colors.

 

 

Brass Free Brunette

Softening a darker shade into a lighter brunette without a lot of brass is a snap

using a high lift shade and a classic shade together

 

Love this formula:

2o.z. AGEbeautiful High Lift Ash & 1/4oz AGEbeautiful 6A Permanent with 4oz. 30 Volume

This formula looks fantastic on levels 4-5 that want to be softly lightened with minimal red/orange tones.

 

These shades are sure to boost your palette’s coloring potential. I know you are going to have lots of illuminating success and cannot wait to see how they work for you!

 

 

Unbreakable Blonde

Remember when blonding hair meant breakage?

 

There are endless reasons to reach for the bleach…  Whether it’s that blondoholic who is never blonde enough, removing a vivid tone or lifting someone’s base color, bleach and high lift color are your most powerful weapons in the color arsenal.

 

It seems like just yesterday that all that power meant compromised, damaged hair. Those days are long gone thanks to the major leaps and bounds from the labs of Zotos Professional.

 

Brand new from AGEbeautiful… Ultra Bond!

Now we can lighten hair with full confidence and no fear of aging, breakage or damage, all with built-in bonding benefits.

 

This cutting edge series has both a powder and crème lightener, three high lift / hyper lift shades, dedicated developers and an at home maintenance line that is the best I have ever worked with.

 

One of my favorite clients has proudly dubbed herself a “blondoholic”.  As long as she was as bright and white as I could possibly get her, she would suffer through the inevitable breakage side effects.  15 plus years of blonding just jumped into the new era…

 

Ever since we have switched her over to using AGEbeautiful’s Ultra Bond Series the results speak for themselves:

 

Jamie Before Ultra Bond Blonding:

Notice how we could only take her blond so far and all that bleaching took its toll on her hair.

 

Jamie After Ultra Bond Bonding:

I’m not only able to get Jamie lighter and brighter but she is now an unbreakable blond!

 

Jamie Formula:

Dense foil wrap of babylights using AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Powder Lightner and 40Volume

In between foil wrap free hand paint mid-lengths and ends with AGEbeautiful Crème Lightener and 40Volume

ProTip:  I love adding a drop of AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Synergy Deep Treatment to my bleach mixtures for the ultimate in luxury consistency.

 

Lighten her natural level 7 base color using AGEbeautiful HLA and 40Volume

(There’s a reason they call this HyperLift, I’m convinced there is rocket fuel in there!)

Process for 45 minutes

 

ProTipTo create a crisp, cool blond try adding a drop of AGEbeautiful 8A into your HyperLift formula.

 

The piece de resistance to these products is that they have built-in bonding.

There is no messy adding in of ingredients to your bleach, these miracle workers are infused with bond-building arginine, silk amino acids and keratin.

 

Now for the best part… the Bond Synergy Hair Care:

This at home regime maintains the bonding benefits after all your brilliant blonding.

Doubling the strength and health in the hair.

 

AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Hair Care In The Wild!

Jamie is excited to add the Bond Series Hair Care to her complete, nutritious hair regime.

 

ProTip:  These shampoos and conditioners are super versatile and a lot of my finer haired clients who are looking, not just for volume, but also density-fiber-building-protein are loving the way this line bulks and fortifies their limp locks.

 

Now that you can lighten with complete confidence go out and there and create unbreakable blondes…

 

I dare you to find breakage!
