I would just like some advice about full head bleaches. im natually a level 7 and i have a full head bleach, which i use wella blondor lightening cream with 6%, and tone with 10/16 with pastel , i am finding at the moment the bleach does tingle a little bit and sometimes have scaps on my scalp the day after iv done my roots :( ,but i do find if i spray a shine spray made from natual oil on my scalp it helps (if i dont put it on or dont put enough on this is why it burns) , i was thinking of changing my bleach to ether matrix vlight or the proclere blue frosting gel lightener , what are these like on scalp and what would u suggest ?

Ok firstly you may be experiencing problems if your hair is freshly washed your scalp with have no natural oils on it which act as a barrier on your scalp.

Secondly v-lights is amazing but I would always recommend using matrix cream developer with it not an own brand, only use 10vol though if your base 7 but why not try a tint? I'd personally use 11 Aa if you like it cool, or 10av if not, both with 30vol

Im guessing ur a wella salon. Try one of the high lifts.
I use bleach on the scalp and only do my roots 3 days after washing, this being the longest I can wait before it looks grimy.
The oil you are using before hand is like blue said immitating the scalps natural oil, but nothing can beat the origional,.

Thanks for the advice , I was thinking about a high lift , I was also thinking about why the bleach burnt , because I left it a week without shampooing but I had my hair cut which I had the clippers on the sides and back right before my colour (the girl who cut my hair she's quite rough with the clippers) :)

You could have a really sensitive scalp, also playing about with it before the bleach could cause irritation. When you bleach the hair your scalp becomes ''fresh'' as the epidermis layer is partially stripped, next time I would base the scalp with something like Lusters Pink Oil, it really helps! I use this on afro relaxers and clients never complain about itching or burning. Also after the bleach has been rinsed off, try applying a Wella Enrich mask, or SP. This should cool the scalp down and help with any irritation.
