Q: Where can I buy peroxide and developer (hair bleach) do dye my roots in Beijing?

Hi there,

 

I'm an Australian model working in Beijing for 3 months, and I have dyed white blonde hair. Unfortunately, my natural hair colour is dark blonde, and after 6 weeks here my roots are  out of control haha.  I really DON'T  want to go to a Chinese hair  salon, as I've heard nothing but horror stories from foreigners that get their hair bleached blonde in Asia, and I usually dye my roots myself anyway.  The problem is I cannot find the bleach and developer ANYWHERE, and  I'm finding it impossible to explain to my agency what I'm after ( my colour doesn't come in a box and no you can't buy it at Carrefour :p).

 

maybe someone knows of a hair salon supply store or some blonde foreigners can help me out??? I'm desperate here!

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is sold in any pharmacy, I do use it to remove blood stains from clothes besides taking care of cleaning wounds.  And the tone is sold at many large department stores and cosmetic shops.  Your problem will be to find the color you will need, light blond (almost white) is not normally used in China.

Have you tried Wal-mart yet? I would go there first as they always have what you need 95% of the time. If that doesn't work out you might have to go to a hair salon. I've got my haircut at those places so it's actually not that bad. Go to RICH it's a korean style Salon run by Koreans that's if you prefer someone else.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
