DON'T DO IT!!! STEP AWAY FROM THE BLEACH!

I did this. It ended bady. I got chemical burn and my hair started breaking off in HUGE CLUMPS.

I just phoned my boyfriend and cried down the phone for hours.
That was several months ago but my hair is still very badly damaged.
I have to spend a small fortune on the planets most expensive hair care products to try and prevent any further damage done and my hair still looks unhealthy. My boyfriend used to love brushing my hair for me at night and he can't do it anymore because i'm scared he'll be too rough and just break more hair off.

It's possibly the worst idea any human has ever had to create home bleaching kits.
If you really want it bleached then go to a hairdressers, trust me on this one. This is one of those things that you just can't chance.

Plus since your hair is dark bleach will just make it go orange which WONT help you colour your hair red, trust me.

Yeah, bleaching your hair from dark is hard anyway. I had very dark, coloured hair before, and I had to have bleach highlights every now and then, to gradually lighten my hair. If you were to do it too much too fast, you could risk damaging the hair, having it break off or even turn orange! Luckily for me, my mother is a hairdresser, so I was able to have it done gradually. Just be very careful when bleaching your hair from a dark colour, and go professional if possible. Good luck!

Bleaching too much is bad for your hair. Even once or twice is bad for your hair... I know girls at my school who bleach and dye their hair all the time, it's funny cause every time I see one I think "I can't wait till I see them at age 40 and their hairs already falling out"

I'm not saying don't dye your hair, I do too every now and then. But I wouldn't bleach more than once or twice.
But if you do, definatly get it done by a proffesional or someone else who's done it a lot of times before and someone you trust. Dont just get your best friend who's done it once to do it for you cause it will turn out awful.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm trying to show you how important it is NOT to do this at home. If you care about the way your hair looks at all, you WILL NOT do it at home. Trust me, I'm a hair fanatic that grew up with a hairdresser. I've had black, blonde, purple, blue, black... All kinds of hair.

If you want bright red hair, and you already have dark hair, you're going to have to bleach it. If you're hair is naturally sort of dark, then It would be okay for your hair to be done by a professional. But If you're dyed it dark, then I wouldn't even get it bleached at a salon.

I had black, and bleached pieces out for my purple. It has damaged my hair but since I use great hair products and I do my hair everyday religiously, It's okay. You see how it turned on. Then when the blonde faded out, I went over my whole head with a nice brown and now I have a a few nice brown colors. So... If you want to do something like I did, you have to pretty much do the same thing. Products, do hair everyday.
