Magically, I had slight roots! What?!
Despite hair growing 1/2 inch every month (that's the average but it varies obviously), I had roots. It confused me. Thankfully, it didn't affect my bleaching too much. My hair doesn't grow particularly fast in my opinion...
This time around, I opted to do a full bleach rather than a bleach cap. Partly due to these mysterious roots and getting my hair one even tone; bleach caps tend to create unevenness for me. That's okay though! I used coconut oil on my hair prior to bleaching after reading an article by Alyssa on xoVain. Supposedly, coconut oil makes the bleach process faster. For me, it did--20 minutes of processing for most of my hair. Sadly though, I found my scalp burning. Uh... W-T-F? I don't attribute this to the bleach but the coconut oil. Reason being I did a bleach cap (which is diluted but it's still bleach, sitting on your scalp), with a bag covering my head, without issue. To suddenly have burning by changing just one part of my routine makes me think it's the coconut oil!

Read Pt. 1 here and wait for Pt. 3 patiently, lovely spookettes. (I'm guessing it's mainly a female audience right now, because ladies love to change their hair!)
