    People who know about hair, I need your halp!!!

    Advertisements
    I'm nearly decided that I'm going (somewhat) blonde! I can't picture it on myself at all but I had blonde hair naturally until I was about 12 so I'm confident that I'll be able to pull it off.


    This is what I want, I think.

    Ok, now for my questions. First of all, taking my hair color into consideration, would I probably be able to achieve this color with just a full highlight or would I also need to lighten the base?


    This picture is kind of dark but I think it's a pretty accurate representation of my hair color. I used to dye it burgundy ish and the red tones are STILL in my hair, but I've been using purple shampoo and it's far less orangey/brassy now.

    Also, my hair is decently healthy (hasnt been dyed in over a year, never lightened at all), I blow dry it maybe once every month or two, occasionally curl my hair. Is there anything I should do to prepare my hair for this? It's not in bad shape at all but Im sort of terrified it's going to break and fall out.

    Lastly, what are some blonde hair essentials? I already know about purple shampoo, but is there anything else I should know about? Do lightening shampoos (John Frieda go blonder etc) actually work at all or does it just dry out your hair and make it orange? Do I have to start buying fancy shampoo or is stuff from target ok?


    Btw sorry, I know Im rambling like a psycho but I'm nervous and need to prepare!!

    it's gonna look super good on you!!
    if i were you, i would just highlight the top half of your head and leave the bottom how it is now. sounds weird but that's what i do (i actually darken the bottom half of mine too) and it looks pretty similar to hers. it gives it more dimension and makes an easier transition and upkeep too

    Hmmm is that what's called a partial highlight then? The reason Im looking at a full highlight is because my stylist back home told me a full highlight will probably be what I want. I've been going back and forth about blonde for like two years haha

    What would happen if I did a partial highlight and wanted it blonder? Just wait until roots show and do a full? Partial would be good (cheaper holla) but I'm worried my hair is gonna look stripey or weird.

    You should get a full foil, first. I wouldn't lighten the base, but I would keep up with upkeep (getting a foil every 6-8 wks there after) so you slowly lighten your hair color, without much of a damaging affect.

    Less damage would be ideal!

    A co worker went from brown to blonde and did it in three separate appts a few weeks apart.
