I was the one who recommended that >.> If this doesn't work I'm gonna die~

Okay, all you have to do is follow the instructions on the sheet of paper that the dye comes with. ALWAYS leave it on about 10 minutes more than the instructions tell you to have on.

There are two parts to this dye, the first one is the overall dye, this will change your hair normally like any other dyes.

You wash it with water until the water becomes clear and TOWEL DRY.

Then you start the second part, which is the highlights. You'll get this creamy paste(?) sort of thing to put on a few strands of your hair to make then come out in a brighter shade than the normal hair colour.

Wash it off after the time the instructions tell you (PLUS 10 minutes), condition it (leave it on for like 5 minutes and just sing a song in the shower). Dry your hair, and you're done!

The whole thing will take about an hour or a bit longer, so you can definately do this within a day (or night~)

Goodluck!

By "bleach" it's not the actual smelly, harmful, liquid-like stuff that you might think it is...

The term "bleach" itself, we (well, I do anyway) mean where you highlight or ligten just parts of your hair.

So the pastey stuff that I talked about before... They'll be the "bleach" or the "highlight" part.

With the highlights - be really careful not to do too much hair at once, or it goes all mottled and not evenly bleached. Like a tortoiseshell effect, which while very cool, is not always what you want...

Hehe. Last time I dyed my hair red I used the highlights kit - the bleach is actually really gentle, it works, but it's not something you want to use on your whole head. Of course I was trying to dye my hair brown that time, but that's what happens when you don't check the packet properly!

GOOD LUCK.

If you wash it until the water goes clear, then you've washed all the hair dye out ... (Although I know nothing about streaking kits.)
