I got a bleach kit to lighten my hair. Not sure how many times I’ll need to do it to get the color I want because my hair is really dark.
I had tried to bleach my hair a good decade ago when it was longer but it didn’t go so well and it didn’t take but then again I had a lot of hair and it was very thick then. I should have bought another kit because one wasn’t enough.
I have above the shoulder length hair now so hoping one will be enough. If not I’ll know for next time and I’ll plan accordingly.
If it's super dark you'll probably need to bleach it 3-4 times depending on how light you want it. But you shouldn't bleach it over, and over all at once or it'll totally fry your hair. Try spacing out each session, and see how your hair takes it. Also, if you're going for a really light color, like blonde or pastels, getting a good purple toner will help you a lot to take the yellow brassiness our of your hair. Or if it's super orangey, blue toner is better, just depends. You can also try bleach bathing once you've gone down a few levels of color. It's not as intense as straight bleaching it, and it lifts less color, but it's gentler on hair.
Thanks for the advice. I’ll go out tomorrow and pick up some toner. I’ll also look up how to do bleach bathing. Thanks again!
