Do you think it will go blonde? *pictures* Andreahhh 1 child; San Antonio, Texas 8745 posts

My hair started like this:

I did two color strips on it, and now it looks like this:

Because of the flash, it looks darker in some places, but it's all over the color that is in my bangs.



So, my question is, do you think it will go to a light blonde?



TIA!

How many lighteners do you think I'll need? I was going to buy a few in advance. I'm not trying to do it really fast, maybe over a month or so.

I had mt hair black for a long time & when I tried going blonde it turned all sorts of strange colors first. I totally fried my hair in the process & ended up cutting it short:( btw I like the color it is now

Yes, but it's not going to happen over night, or even in a few months. To do it right and without damage it can take half a year or more. You can jump the gun and bleach it if you want, and hope it doesn't fall out.

The strip has done all it can do. So I was going to start the lightening process in about a week.

That is how I went from black back to blond. I stripped it once, dyed it a light brown, and then did all over hi-lights. It definitely did some work to my hair, but after conditioning and treating it really well for a few months, my hair was back to normal.

I know there will be damage on the ends. But, I'll be trimming all that off.

My good friend who is a hairstylist is doing it all for me. :) I'm not using boxed bleach or anything, and I plan on taking it slow with the lightening process.
