Apply the bleach from the ends and then going above towards the roots. Now comes the question about till what time the bleach is to be left on to be effective. This depends upon your original hair color. The darker the shade, the longer is the time needed for the bleach to lighten the color. Ideally it should be 30 minutes and not more than 60 minutes altogether. That means 40-45 minutes is ambient. Scrap the bleach off a strand of hair with a tissue and see if the bleach has been effective. If it has, then rinse off with water thoroughly for like 15 minutes. A better suggestion is to keep your head under the tap water and let full stream of water flow through it. Now, use some color protecting shampoo which you often get with the bleach pack. Use its conditioner and let it dry on its own. See the results. If you are satisfied, move on with coloring or styling and if not, wait for one week for again bleaching to get the perfect hair color you long for.

After that wash with the color protecting shampoo again and use a heavy conditioner. Condition your hair nicely, they need nutrition at this time a lot.
