Bleaching hair. I'm kind of ticked off. - March 2nd 2010, 07:08 AM

A few months ago I had a horrible dying experience going from brown to blonde with a box dye, hoping to get all one bleached blonde color. The next day I went into the salon and the stylist said, "Well, since bleaching is so bad for your hair, I'm going to just put highlights." I seriously just wanted it to look okay, so I let her do whatever. It came out with bleached highlights, but remained a dark blonde elsewhere. It was cool, but as the roots are starting to grow in, I kind of want to stay blonde, and moreso become BLEACH blonde.

Everywhere I go and all of the stylists I ask tell me to dye it another color, because blonde won't work. It makes me super angry. Why can other people bleach their hair and I can't? I decided to simply do it myself by purchasing toner and developer, but the lady at the checkout said, "I wouldn't do that if I were you. Your hair will fall out." So I didn't buy it. But seriously, what are people doing that I'm not?

One lady mentioned something about my bleached highlights being the reason, saying that if I bleached over them, they would definitely fry. So should I wait until all of the roots grow in and then bleach it? Or what? How are people getting blonde hair?!

Waitin' for my ruca.

I went from dyed almost black hair to pretty much bleach blonde like I am now.

It took me over the course of a year, and I just had loads and loads of bleach highlights every few weeks. You need to make sure you keep your hair conditioned, because the bleach can and will damage your hair.

You will be blonde/brown for ages, and each time you put more blonde in, your whole look will lighten. If you have dyed your hair dark, and you're putting bleach on that, it'll be a bit more difficult to dye over, and could damage more. So if you could let the dye grow out as much as possible, the bleach will work better. But be warned! The bleach can go ORANGE! Once you have pretty much bleached all the hair with highlights, you can then use an all over colour to even it out.

This process takes time, and can damage your hair. But ultimately it can be worth it. You just need to have patience and know-how.

Good luck!
