Changing your natural hair color to a lighter tone, implies more work to fix it with color correction later on. Just as an example, your hair will require the help of special shampoos for your yellow hair removal after bleaching. Toners will need to be applied as well in order to avoid unwanted brassiness without removing the golden tones you want.
For an appropriate blonde tone at home, your hair will need the extra TLC it could possibly get. And take into account that hair lightening and also bleaching will open up and remove your hair cuticle, and at the end will make your hair look like straw.
So before deciding on taking the blonde hair path, be sure to have the oil treatments and deep conditioning masks your blonde hair needs. If you prevent bleach overlapping when you cover your hair regrowth, you’ll keep any hair damage risk to a minimum. So try to be careful when applying the lightening mixture on the hair which isn’t your wished level yet. And remember, anything over 2 levels beyond the natural hair color will require more maintenance.
