If you try to bleach your hair with box dye your hair is going to be ugly orange and spotty and you will hate it and yourself and you won't be able to afford to get it fixed. Save up for a few months and get it done professionally by a reputable colorist who knows how to work with ethic hair.

If you want blonde I would go with a dark blonde with the blue



This is dd with blonde & blue hair. She's also has a medium complexion

If you want it like that save a few bucks to get it done professionally. THEN, make sure you have a monthly budget for it that kind of maintenance costs a few bucks to keep it looking good and staying healthy. The last thing you want is broken hair.

As far as box dyes I had the best results using the feria when I was blonde

Your hair will more than likely end up orange :(



Your hair is beautiful how it is! I know it's probably not what you want to hear but I would definitely wait and see a professional that way you get what you want!

Your hair is going to turn orange, especially if you have red in it.

Any time you want to go from a dark hair color to blonde, always go to a salon.
I went from a deep red color to blonde, and still had brassy/orange pieces and I went to a salon. If I had tried it myself, it would have been a huge failure

I've always did my hair myself... so I'd say go for it. It's your hair & your choice. ;)

I always do my hair myself too but as dark as her hair is...the chances of her hair going as light as she wants, are slim to none. Whenever I have gone from brown to blonde it has taken me two bleaches + toning. It also depends on your hair type and the condition. But yes, it is her hair and her choice.

From personal experience and from being a cosmetologist myself, red is the most difficult color to get out of hair. It will turn very brassy. I had to triple process my hair to get it blonde and tone it to get rid if the brassiness.

Don't do it. Not only will it come out orange, but it will damage your hair and mess up your curls - they'll be limp and hard to manage. Plus light-skinned black girls look better with darker hair IMO.

I'm not sure if she has a Sally's in her area or if that's just around here but it's a really good store and they sale bleaching materials and stuff she would need. But my hair has always stayed a light color when I do it so I'm not sure. If anything she could save up $ and get it professionally done.. (:

I honestly think you will not achieve the blonde you are hoping for without bleaching it. I have dark brown hair and the only way to get it to lighten like that is to bleach it. You may get an orange-red if you go with a box of color.

Her hair is two different colors right now. If she puts the lightener all over, it will be two different colors. It won't turn out right.
