What product should i use for lightening my hair?

So I dyed my hair last week, and the result was a strawberry blonde shade. My mom and I were pondering on which product we should use if I were to lighten my hair to a blonde. She says I could maybe use Born Blonde, or hair bleach, but I'm not sure how safe that is for the health of my hair. I'm looking for a nice vanilla blonde, as pictured. Thanks! :)

Effasol is usually pretty productive. You may also want to pick up a deep mast to re-nourish your hair and re-hydrate (2x/month) after lightening. If you aren't looking to lift more than a shade, you can mix it with shampoo and leave in the shower for 5-10 mins for a fast shade of lift.

I heard beauty supply stores are great if you're looking for a variety of hair bleaches to choose from. I'd go online and do some research beforehand though!

I'd wait at least 2 weeks before processing my hair again since you just got your hair done last week. If you're going for a lighter color, i'd suggest going to get it professionally done, as it's really hard to do it yourself if you've never done it before.

I would stay clear of hair bleach. The best would be to have a color specialist do your hair, you will get the best result if you're looking to go to the vanilla blonde.

in my opinion you have to bleach you re hair like you re mother say then choose the exact colour you want and dye. I know you are worried about you re hair but you just bleach 1 time..and if you go to the hairdresser they can do some treatment to not damage the hair!

You need to have this done at a salon by a professional, otherwise you risk breakage and damage to your hair. If money is an issue for you, seek out a cosmetology school in your area. Their prices are very reasonable; about $20-$30 for hair coloring- and you'd be getting the expertise of the instructor.

I think you should wait a month or so, then dye it, but in the meantime, you should look at other colors and styles here on TAAZ.
