  1. I found your blog through a fellow friend's yesterday. I have had my hair every color in the rainbow. It's naturally dark brown. What I've found that keeps my hair healthy, is that I condition it, like crazy. It's naturally thick, so it falls out a great deal (but my hairdresser said it's ok, because of how insanely thick it is. If it all stayed in, I couldn't even get my fingers through it.) Anyway, I like your posts about the bleaching & dyeing tips. Thanks!


  2. Hurrah! I am in the process of bleaching my hair from brown to white and than to purple - this post has made it all a lot less scary.

  3. THANK YOU for this guide!! I am so excited to begin experimenting with bright hair color again. Last year, I added pink with the L'Oreal Color Rays in fushia. It was so much fun, and easy. Tonight, thanks to your guide, I am bleaching the ends of my hair and adding Beyond the Zone Not So Violet.

  4. Hello! I love this post, brief but very informative for people like me who wants to dye up my hair into pastel colors. My hair's naturally dark brown, near to black but maybe black, depends at times. But I have been bleaching and dyeing my hair to light brown or greenish blonde from jet black. Thank you for the tips here because I am planning to dye my hair soon, gotta bleach it first.

  6. My hair is naturally whire blonde and I've dyed it many times over the last 2 years. I've just decided to bleach my hair then dye it vibrant red. I would dye it midnight blue, but my twin sister already did. I love your post though!

  7. Hmm!! This blog is really cool, I’m so lucky that I have reached here and got this awesome information.

  8. Thanks for the post. It really helped me uncover some myths about bleaching lol. I'm planning on dying my hair black brown underneath and platinum blonde on top. And maybe adding some other color like purple or red.

  9. Thanks so much! I'm doing a lavender ombre & the process is killing me but I am following these steps and it's good to know it's for a good cause. So many haters telling me I can't go from dark brown to lav but they are wrong! I'll show them.
