The white beard (and hair, but I don’t have very much of that).
I’ve had a number of reactions. (Including, but not limited too, “Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a much nicer person now. More like Santa Claus.” and “Oh! You did a Gandalf!” and lots of plain “I like it.”)
The beard is more yellow than I’d like, but less yellow than I feared.
As you can see in the above picture the roots are still their original (or close to) red(ish) colour. I’ll wait for a few days or maybe a week (letting my sore skin heal after two bleaches the same evening) and then have another go at it.
I also intend to buy some silver shampoo to counter the yellow tinge. I’d rather end up with greyish-white, than blondish hair.
Oh, by the way, I ended up using “Jane Hellen Mood”, “Blond Level 4” for the bleaching/dyeing. The package doesn’t specificly say “bleach”, but it worked about as good as could be expected. It was much cheaper than most other brands (45 sek, where most where priced around 80 sek in the local supermarket, and 100 to 120 sek in a more expensive make-up store).
