I do not bleach my hair but if I ever went lighter I would try this! I do not really dye my hair either, I have used henna before and demi permanent Manic Panic but it has since grown out. However, I did dye my hair with Red Koolaid and use it to keep my demi permanent red dye (Manic Panic) vibrant a few years back. It worked great!
