THE DECOLOURIZATION

The decolourization is the most effective way to bleach natural hair or coloured hair. The function of decolorizing products The function of bleaching products is to “lighten” the natural colour of the hair through the depolymerization of the melanin (protein that determines the colour of the hair) incorporated within the protein chains dispersed in capillary bark. Natural pigments that determine the Melanin are (red, blue, yellow).

  • Black- brown Pigment = Raper-mason Eumelanin synthetic pathway (easier to remove, because the pigments are grainy and more concentrated).
  • Pigment red-yellow = Feomelanina (more difficult to remove because its pigments are widespread and small) The relative proportion of the melanin determine the intensity and the shades of the natural colour. The process that produces “lightening” of the natural colour is called:

Decolourization (Bleach). Decolourization The mechanism of action consists in transforming the melanin contained in hair by means of oxidizing agents present in bleaching products. Among these, the more active is the ammonium persulfate that leads to the formation of ammonia (an important factor to encourage the penetration of the product). These oxidizing agents are mixed with peroxides (oxygenated waters at different volumes), to get the levels of lightening you want. These agents, once reached the melanin in the core of the hair, change their composition by reducing the molecular weight.

Mechanism of the action
The mechanism of the action is a chemical process that starts with the application of the products. Precisely:

  1. After the selection of the type of bleach to use , which is mixed with the appropriate peroxide, proceed to the application with tools and specific techniques according to the optimal results desired;
  2. During the processing time it is advisable to work out the hair strands to facilitate penetration of the bleaching product;
  3. Respect the processing time that can vary depending on the bleaching product used and the degree of high-lightening that you want to reach.
  4. Achieved the optimum level of high-lightening, proceed to rinse with warm water by eliminating thoroughly all residues;
  5. Only if necessary to proceed with a slight shampoo taking care not to stress the scalp and the hair;
  6. It is important, after the decolorizing action, use a toner on the hair with the desired colour, remembering that: “plateau” scale level + colouring = final result. After the processing time, which varies according to the porosity of the hair, the neutralization and the reflection, proceed to a careful rinsing, followed to a specific shampoo (Colour Lock Amphoten Sha mpoo ).
  7. To complete the treatment, apply a product with an acid pH (Colour Lock Emulsion D).
  8. If it were necessary, repeat the decolourization, without rinsing with water and with suitable means completely removing the product. Apply a small amount of conditioning, protective, moisturizing (Colour Lock Midopla ), and proceed to a second application of bleach mixing with low volume developers.
