Pickling is a technique used to lighten dyed hair. Its goal is to deprive the hair of the artificial pigment in order to dye the hair in another color.

This techinque is not easy, as you need to take care of the hair with the right products. For this reason, if you want to bleach or pickle your hair, always ask a professional hairdresser that knows how to do it.
