Hair bleaching is not really a hair removal technique but it is used to disguise the hair against the skin by making it appear much lighter so it is harder to see.
Whatever you do – DO NOT USE LAUNDRY BLEACH – or any other type of household bleaching agents.
These may cause reactions with your skin, discoloration, burns etc. as well as the potentially dangerous fumes; especially if you are bleaching the hair on your top lip.
There are specially formulated cosmetic bleaches designed for just this purpose.
Use one of those.
Before Bleaching Your Hair
Before bleaching any area of your body (the top lip is most common), test a small area first to ensure you don’t have an adverse reaction to the bleaching agent.
Skin irritation, burning, itching, redness, soreness, blisters, or any other adverse reaction should be checked for. If this occurs and the symptoms do not relieve after thoroughly cleaning the bleaching agent off please seek medical advice immediately!
Bleaching hair is not advisable for people with a dark tan or naturally dark skin. Bleached hair will stand out against this background, defeating the purpose of the exercise.
