Do facial hair bleaches work on african american women???
i would like to know ( like sally hansen or somehting)
i prefer answeres from african american woman that have tried
yes! and i'm dark skinned
I'm African American, can I pull off lilac hair?
So my hair is coming back in really nicely so really don't want to do anything to my own hair. So I came up with the idea to buy a wig and color it lilac. If I choose a synthetic wig what ink dye can I use on it and if I choose human hair should I buy a platinum one and bleach it and use toner on it til it's white and dye it the color I want or untreated wig and do the same process. Both to be honest can be time consuming the difference is cost. So which should I do??( I tried a purple wig the color doesn't bother me )
You could dye the wig if it's made of human hair, or just use a wig that's already lilac. I'm sure it's look nice because it would probably contrast really pretty with your skin tone c: But then everyone's different. It depends on your facial structure and things like that too
Can black (african american) women bleach facial hair to make it less noticeable?
Or will it just turn blond or something and just look weird because you can still see it?
Bleaching makes it blond. She would just draw more attention to it.
