    Hey, Ms lourens,

    I’ve just checked out your site, impressive portfolio/CV. The site also looks lovely and clean.

    But then I always thought you were very talented – you did some interesting stuff to my hair.

    I wanted to ask you – my mother uses old fashioned peroxide on her hair/scalp (she’s a platinum blonde) and I have advised her to use less toxic products…
    Do you know of a brand SA or UK that will bleach the hair with less toxicity? Seems very hard to come by.

      Hi Vinca –
      To bleach the hair to platinum you general need to use a powder bleach and hydrogen peroxide, depending on the base colour of the hair (a little base may not need this application). No organic products available that would do this.
