How is it done? I actually saw a guy with white hair. Not platinum blond. Actually white. Can it be done to your eyebrows and beard?

bleach it to platinum blonde.

then there's a temporary colour for White that lasts for 15-30 washes. it's not safe to dye your eyebrow.

To warn you, you will kill your hair majorly.
My friend has black hair and tried to do it and she couldn't get her hair to bleach past a close to platinum blond color.
But everyone's hair is different.

You basically have to bleach it and tone it or use special bleaching kits for white hair.

I dont recommend it. But I know you have to bleach it over and over until it turns white. but I think it depends on your hair color, if your hair is dark, you might have a harder time doing it. I dont think you should bleach your eyebrows or beard, it could irritate your skin. Dont think you'd want that.

1. Bleach your hair (This will not make your hair completely white.)
2. Tone your hair (This process will remove the remaining pigment from your hair)
3. Pearly white hair achievement unlocked.


If you were to leave bleach in your hair long enough to turn it completely white your hair would be so damaged that it probably would all come out in your hands. Toner isn't good for you hair either. If you decide to make your hair white be prepared to condition it a lot and to use leave in hair conditions and oils. One I really like is It's a 10. It's a leave in product that conditions and restores your hair, it smells kind of good, and doesn't make your hair all greasy like others do.

You shouldn't bleach your hair any more than once a month. Just using bleach to make your hair white does not end well at all and your hair will probably end up in the garbage can.

1. bleach it once or twice to get it to yellow-blonde or lighten it over several months with lightening kits (takes longer but it's much less damaging)

2. use purple shampoo/conditioner (you can find it in any drugstore) or a purple vegetable based dye and conditioner mix to run through your hair and get rid of the yellow or orangey tones (keep in mind that if you don't rinse it out after a minute your hair will turn purple)

3. if it's silver/gray and not white, you can lighten it again (BLEACH FREE. DO NOT BLEACH YOUR HAIR MORE THAN TWICE A YEAR OR IT WILL BE FRIED OH MY GOD)

4. deep condition your hair by slapping a glob of conditioner all over your hair and leaving it in for hours. (don't do this with purple toning conditioner or it'll turn your hair lavender. if you want lavender hair, then do that i suppose)

5. avoid heat and styling tools. i mean it. your hair will be damaged enough and it doesn't need to be damaged anymore. only blowdry it on the cool setting.

6. have fun with the very expensive and damaging high maintenance white hair you have

i had white hair for about 2 months. so expensive and damaging. don't do it unless you have the funds and products to keep it as healthy as possible

I dyed my hair white/gray in June. I'm a male with long brown/amber hair. Everyone at the beauty saloon I went to said it was a bad idea, because it puts your hair through quite a bit, and not all hair can handle it. They told me stories of people's hair literally breaking off just from the bleaching process. But I was up for the risk hah. I first had to bleach my hair to strip it of its color and then get gray toner to dye it further. It turned out a couple shades lighter than I originally wanted (I was going for a more silver color as opposed to white), but I was still satisfied. A few months down the road though my roots are growing back, and you can really tell the contrast when I put it up in my "samurai bun", but I still like it. If you're willing to take a risk and be flexible about the outcome, go for it!

Oh, and I used (well, still use) the purple shampoo and conditioner (separate products) to help brighten the tone.

I have natural brown hair and once I bleach it it's usually a light yellow/orange color. To get rid of the yellow color I buy hair toner at a salon store and it turns close to white.

If it were me, I'd air brush with acrylic paint and wash it out later with alcohol.

My father is Santa, and makes sure his beard is white every year by going to local salons and getting whitening formula. He had them apply it the first time, but after that he just bought his own supply and uses it himself. Bleaching / whitening is a tricky thing, so I'd highly recommend getting a professional to do it the first time and recommend products for maintaining at home. It also really depends on your hair color.. which is another good reason to get a pro to help you to start.
