Do you bleach your hair at home? Please help me understand how to follow the instruction "avoid scalp"!

Asked by marmoset (1260points) October 15th, 2020

This will be my first time bleaching at home (due to pandemic) but I’ve had it done a lot in a salon. I think this is a universal question, but the brand I’ll use is Manic Panic, 30 volume.

My hair isn’t very long and I bleach all of it. It’s brown, like a 4, and I want to get it to a 9, very light blonde (a 10 isn’t required for the color I want to dye it).

The directions say to avoid the scalp. I just don’t get how to avoid the scalp while still getting all the hair / while not leaving roots brown.

(Bleaching is really painful for me, even with painkillers, so if I can have less scalp contact that would be great!!)
