Bleaching hair

Slightly obvious question, but I've never bleached my own hair and am somewhat ignorant of the procedure.

If someone with very dark hair were to disguise themselves by bleaching their hair and eyebrows, and somehow contrive to lighten their eyelashes as well, how long would it be, on average, before the appearance of roots gave the game away? I'm thinking of this in a historical context, using early compounds of hydrogen peroxide, and it may be possible to delay the showing of those roots for a few days by judicious application of wig powder, but eventually the game will be up, and I need to know roughly how long my hero has to effect his daring rescue before his roots start to show ;)

Many thanks in advance; this is an unbelievably helpful community!
