Hair dying. - February 28th 2012, 10:11 PM

This weekend I plan on dying my hair, but I have some concerns about it. The last time I got it dyed, actually my first time I got it done at the hair dressers but I want to go even blonder than I did then (and I need to sort out my roots).
Basically, I'm confused on the different shades of blonde. I have no clue which kind of shade I would like to go, so how do I go about doing this? And also, how do I know which brand is a reliable one? I don't want my hair to go any colours that look yucky or a colour I don't want it to go!

I mean, since your hair is already blonde, it likely won't do anything super crazy.
If nothing else, you could always go to the store and see what shades there are. You could write down a few of the brands the store has, then come back and google them and see what feedback/reviews have been given on them and make your decision from there.
Are you wanting to go more of a strawberry blonde, dirty blonde, platinum blonde or another type of blonde?
Another option is getting a dye that isn't permanent, seeing how you like it, and once that dye has washed out, if you did like it, you could go find a similar (or the same) shade that is permanent.
I feel like this is one of the most rambly replies I've ever written, so I hope this makes an inkling of sense.

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

If you plan on getting your hair done at a salon again, ask them for the color wheel. It's a huge ring of fake hair samples of the different hair colors they have in their salon. Whenever I was trying out a new hair color, I would look at that as well.

If not, I would definitely suggest going into a store before hand and looking at the different shades. On the back of the product boxes, it will give you a glance of how it MIGHT turn out based on the hair color you have now.

Also, since you needed to sort out your roots, you'll want to pay extra close attention to those first!

I'm not all that sure about hair dye brands in the UK, but if you know of any you can go to their website and they usually have a color chart. On the box as well it usually shows what shade your hair will turn based on your current color. So I would just look around and see what suits your fancy.

And here you are living, despite it all.
