This is the latest trend in hairstyles and hair look when it comes to coloring creating an effect as if the sun's rays were continuously projecting its light on your hair. Clarifying the tips of the hair and offering a natural effect on the roots.

As always it is important to moisturize the hair very well since we are applying dye and that is why I always recommend you to take care of it if it is fatty or dry these homemade masks
How to make California Wicks Step by Step
I will tell you my experience since it depends a lot on the dye that you use the final result as well as the hair color you have but then the procedure is always the same.
In my case, I used the Loreal Paris Number 101 Belmont dye brand for very dark brown hair Californian Look.
Also in the product box brings an instruction to guide you better if you have any questions or you can consult me in the comments.
The kit will bring us
- First Step: a bleaching powder where it is used to perform the gradient
- Step two is the developer cream or hydrogen peroxide
- Step three the lightening cream
- Step four conditioner shampoo
You start by mixing both the bleaching powder in the developer cream all in the same container. After you finish mixing in a homogeneous way, what you have to do now is add the lightening cream next to the whole mixture and continue mixing and then apply.
I advise you to do the part of the mixture with the closed container that step 2 brings you since you can beat well for a few minutes so that it is very homogeneous and better mixing this then it will be easier to be able to dye each end of your hair.
Then you put the cap that has an applicator shape as a funnel to start applying on your hair.
Tip if you have medium short hair I recommend putting petroleum jelly on your neck with that you achieve that if the dye touches it you can prevent it from adhering to your skin, with this you avoid having to be then rubbing your body with a sponge.
Before applying the dye, put on the gloves that the kit product brings, of course this is because of the brand that I tell you about my experience but you can use the one that best fits your pocket, so if each manufacturer acts differently in every head of women and what works for one does not work for another is a matter of trying but always try to use recognized brands.
With a thick bristle comb, start dividing your hair in two from the center, marking a line and combing the sides leaving a straight line of our scalp.
This kit includes a small brush to apply but you can also do it with a hairdresser brush that is used a lot that I advise you to always have since not always the Californian dye kit brings it.
We add enough of the mixture to the brush or if you do it with the brush on the hair you are going to apply.
I recommend starting from the tips and you go up to a little below half of your hair.
Other people like to start by applying in the media the super lightening 12-1 + 30 volumes this is already a matter of taste but I am left with the first option I give you.
Then we apply on the other side and once we finish we must wait 15 minutes for the dye to take effect on our hair.
After those 15 minutes we apply more dye to the hair in the same place of the hair but a little above the part that you applied previously until you reach the middle of the wick.
With this same we cause that degrade effect of darker to lighter hair causing the range of colors we want.
Now you wait 20 minutes.
After waiting for the time to fix the dye on the hair you wash with step 4 that mentions you of conditioning shampoo.
We dry with a towel to remove excess water and then with the hair dryer.
Ready with this you finished the steps to have your Californian Wicks Homemade like you and I like to be more beautiful.
