Have you ever bleached your dark hair and dyed it an unnatural colour?

I'm thinking of doing this and wanted some tips/advice. Anyone ever done it?

  • all i can sugest is take your time... if you plan on going blonde from a naturally dark hair colour... go to the hair dressers several times and slowly bring the colour down... other wise it will look trashy and YUCK!!! I have Dark brown hair (naturally) and i have been every colour in the world...
    good luck

  • bleaching dark hair depending upon your ethnic back ground and the condition of your hair, can be very damaging...is this going to be a home job or a salon job? Are you the type that changes your mind and in a few weeks wants yet another color to express yourself? There are a lot of questions i would ask before i did something that drastic.I love self expression! but... I would seriously suggest going to a salon...there are all kinds of factor that go into lifting a natural color drastically out of the hair..such as the type of water that you use in your house to bathe in, shampoo, conditioner, products, diet, and the hair shaft itself....seriously! Im a cosmetologist, dont do this drastic change with out a educated back up. Also make sure the hairdresser has excellent credentials and experience. ok?
