Benefits Of Using Argan Oil Powder Lightener
Argan oil is a powerful ingredient that offers numerous benefits for hair. When used in combination with the Powder Lightener, it can help maintain the integrity of the hair during the lightening process. The proprietary BondCare + ArganID® System helps protect bonds, reducing damage and breakage. The microencapsulated argan oil-based technology infuses antioxidant-rich oil deep into the cortex of the hair, resulting in added shine and conditioning benefits.
Argan oil is rich in fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, which are commonly found in skin moisturizers and hair conditioners. These hydrophobic oils prevent hair breakage by keeping moisture inside the strands, where it belongs. This helps to maintain the health of the hair during and after the lightening process.
In addition to its hydrating properties, argan oil also contains squalene, which helps to hydrate and protect the skin barrier. It can reduce inflammation due to its linoleic acid content, which is thought to be anti-inflammatory. This makes it an excellent choice for those experiencing dryness or dullness of their hair.
Furthermore, argan oil contains antioxidants such as polyphenols and Vitamin E that help with free radical damage, making it helpful in addressing overall hair health. In a study published in Fashion and Textiles, bleached hair treated with an argan oil-infused conditioner became shinier and softer compared with bleached hair that was just shampooed. Bleached hair also became smoother after 21 days of treatment.
How To Prepare For Using Argan Oil Powder Lightener
Preparing for using Argan Oil Powder Lightener is crucial to ensure the best results and minimize any potential damage to your hair. Here are the steps you should follow:
Step 1: Perform a Strand Test
Performing a strand test is essential to determine the appropriate level of lift and processing time needed for your hair. To perform a strand test, mix a small amount of the Argan Oil Powder Lightener and Cream Developer according to the instructions, then apply it to a small section of hair. Leave it on for the recommended time and check the color. If you are satisfied with the result, you can proceed with the full application.
Step 2: Protect Your Skin and Clothes
Wear plastic gloves to protect your skin from irritation and staining. Also, wear an old shirt or cover your clothes with a towel to avoid any accidental staining.
Step 3: Mix the Lightener and Developer
Empty the entire packet of Argan Oil Powder Lightener into a non-metallic bowl. Then, add the desired volume of One ‘n Only Argan Oil Cream Developer (10, 20, 30, or 40) and mix thoroughly until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
Step 4: Apply the Mixture
Divide your hair into sections and apply the mixture using a brush, starting from the ends and working your way up towards the roots. Make sure to saturate each section evenly.
Step 5: Monitor Processing Time
Monitor your hair every 5-10 minutes to check for the desired level of lift. Do not exceed the recommended processing time as this can cause damage to your hair.
Step 6: Rinse and Condition
Once you have achieved your desired level of lift, rinse your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water until all traces of the lightener are removed. Then, apply a deep conditioning treatment to restore moisture and nourishment to your hair.
By following these steps, you can safely and effectively use Argan Oil Powder Lightener to achieve beautiful and healthy-looking hair.
Step-by-step Guide On Using Argan Oil Powder Lightener
Step 2: Mix the Lightener and Developer
In a non-metallic bowl, mix the Argan Oil Powder Lightener and Cream Developer according to the instructions on the packaging. The formula should mix up into a smooth, creamy consistency that allows for easy application.
Step 3: Section Your Hair
Using your applicator brush, section your hair into manageable parts. Take approximately 1/4 inch diagonal partings and apply the bleach to the regrowth. Most people start in the back, but you can start in the front if you prefer.
Step 4: Apply the Lightener
Working one section at a time, apply the lightener to your hair. Use your brush to distribute it evenly from root to tip. Be sure to avoid getting any lightener on your scalp or skin.
Step 5: Monitor the Lightening Process
Check your hair every 5-10 minutes to see how much it has lightened. The lightening process can be controlled by adjusting the speed, power, and gentleness of lift using 10, 20, 30 or 40 Volume One ‘n Only Argan Oil Cream Developer. Total lift control is achieved with this system.
Step 6: Rinse and Shampoo Your Hair
Once you have achieved your desired level of lift, rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. You must shampoo your hair at least two times to remove any oil residue. Your hair may feel dry and gross after shampooing, but do not use conditioner as hair dye doesn’t take well to conditioned hair.
Step 7: Style Your Hair
After rinsing and shampooing, dry and style your hair as desired. You can mix veggie dyes and conditioner together for added color and conditioning benefits.
Using these steps, you can achieve any level of lift without unnecessary damage to your hair. The Argan Oil Powder Lightener is powerful enough for fast, off-scalp highlighting and works equally well with foils or caps. Plus, it leaves your hair in superior condition with unsurpassed shine!
Aftercare Tips For Maintaining Healthy Hair Post-lightening.
Lightening your hair can cause damage and dryness, but with the right aftercare, you can maintain healthy and lustrous locks. Here are some tips for taking care of your hair after using Argan Oil Powder Lightener:
1. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
After lightening your hair, it’s important to use a shampoo and conditioner that provides moisture to prevent dryness and brittleness. Choose a gentle cleansing shampoo that doesn’t strip your hair of its natural oils. Follow up with a moisturizing conditioner that nourishes your hair and leaves it silky and smooth.
2. Apply a Leave-In Treatment
To keep your hair hydrated, apply a leave-in treatment after washing it. This helps seal in moisture and prevents your hair from becoming dry and frizzy. Look for a product that is specifically designed for lightened hair, such as the Bigen Daily Hydration Leave-in Conditioner.
3. Use a Heat Protectant Before Styling
Using hot tools without a heat protectant can damage your hair and cause breakage. This is especially true for lightened hair, which is more prone to dryness and brittleness. Before using a flat iron or blow dryer, apply a heat protectant like the Bigen Silkening Shine Serum to protect your hair from heat damage.
4. Restore Shine with Sheen Spray
Lightened curly hair can become even drier than usual, so it’s important to restore its shine by using a sheen spray. This product adds a healthy shine to your curls and helps retain moisture. Look for an oil sheen spray that contains natural ingredients like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, and Safflower Seed Oil, such as the Bigen Sheen Mist.
By following these aftercare tips, you can keep your lightened hair healthy and beautiful. Remember to always use products that provide moisture and protection, and avoid over-styling with hot tools. With the right care, you can enjoy your new lighter locks without compromising their health.
