I had my natural coloured hair highlighted in early december in a bid to look blonde (I have dark blonde (according to the hairdresser) which to me looks like a dull light brown). They used foils and I love the colour of the highlights although they were so fine it’s lifted my overall colour a shade or two lighter. My mum didn’t even notice! Anywho, I’d like to have more highlights put in so I become blonder however I don’t want to damage my hair. I used to be a dyed red head (using permanent dye every two months) which really damaged and dried out my hair. I’ve taken the time to grow it all out so that it’s in good condition but I don’t want to compromise it. Would another set of highlights cause damage to my hair? Trying to get it in ace shape for the future wedding 🙂 Any advice is welcome!
Thanks for reading!

I have dark brown hair and used to get blonde highlights every 4 weeks with no major damage. I just tried to take great care of my hair in between!

I too highlight my hair every two months with no damage and I go from dark brown with extreme blonde highlights. I think you will be fine!

I have dark blonde hair highlighted a couple of shade lighter and I get it done about every 4 months and my hair does grow 1/2 or more a month but since it is within a couple of shades it is hard to notice. I would get it highlighted to where you like it but then push the maint to 6-8 weeks minimum

Just make sure the stylist checks the foils and doesn’t let them cook too long or areas of overlap will get too blonde and also begin to develop rough patches/damage. The more you highlight, the more you should consider deep conditioning once a week for optimal shine/health!
