how to lighten hair without bleach? - July 4th 2015, 09:13 AM

I want to lighten my hair without using bleach. My hair used to be dirty blonde, but I've been dying it really dark colors like black, and I also have a kinda greenish tint from dye. I want to lighten my hair so that I can use light dyes like pink, red, purple, etc. My hair is brown with dyed blonde hilights but i just dyed it blue.


tell your boyfriend if he says he's got beef that i'm a vegetarian and I aint ****ing scared of him

If your hair is naturally dirty blonde you might have some success in using a hair stripper to get rid of the other colours you've used. You'd probably need the maximum strength one but even then it might not work completely as colours such as blue tend to stain the hair more so than "natural" colours.

Other than that I'm not sure what else I can suggest. You can use lemon juice to lighten hair somewhat but as your hair is quite dark and blue it might not turn out so well.

I'd say stripping the hair is your best bet and see what colour it turns out as afterwards. You might want to buy a light brown dye to put over your hair afterwards as everytime I've stripped my hair the colour has been patchy and uneven.

Thanks is there like any natural ways? Stripping sounds damaging and I'm not sure if lemon juice will work.

Stripping the hair isn't too damaging compared to bleaching. It doesn't usually contain ammonia or peroxide which are the two main chemicals that cause hair damage. As long as your hair is in good shape before you strip it then it should work out fine, just be sure to condition it properly afterwards.

Apart from lemon juice I don't know of any other natural ways to lighten your hair other than sitting out in the sun for a very long time
