my hair is really dark naturally but i am really pale so i often change my hair colour… i either bleach it first then dye over that (whichh isn’t great for your hair) or i use a pre-lightner before the dye this also works. my mum uses pre-ligtner too and she has jet black hair naturally, but still manages to dye her hair

I had a lighter brown weaved in my hair using foils yesterday and then a 3 volume put on  the pieces hanging out of the foil…for the base. You dont necessarily have to bleach the hair to go lighter…you can add a light brown!

I was a 4 1/2 neutral with a splash of golden and didnt love the shade, it was pretty but having super blonde hair before it faded into a reddish chestnutt. So she  added a 5N with a splash of warmth,foiled some  of  that in and then used a 3N for my base with a splash of Voilet and it  came out wonderful! I have some dimension now:) Just ask them to foil in some shade of light brown like a 6 and it will help break up the darkness!

I just had my hair lightened.  I’m usually a very dark red and the first lady I went to told me the same thing, I’d have to highlight and re-highlight and whatever to make it look lighter.  But I was refusing to do that because I don’t like my hair highlighted, I’ve had it before, but I hate the upkeep that comes with highlights.  So I asked a different hair stylist and she ended up using a color remover first to try to get out as much of the dye in my hair as she could and then she bleached it.  Then she dyed it and told me to come in a few days later to dye it again because it wouldn’t be even the first time due to the bleaching.  It wasn’t, it was much lighter on the ends and bright orange at my roots, so I went back a few days later and she re-dyed it the same color and it looks great now. A lot lighter than before but it was definitely a process, 4-5 hours in the salon total.
