Has anyone gone blonde successfully?
So the background is this: I'm naturally dark blonde/ light brown. I went dark brown, then red, now blonde.

My hair is dry (to be expected) but I need to go one level higher to get some gold red out, has anyone gone blonde successfully?

I'd like to say yes, but maybe not so successfully.

It took me several tries to get the orange out, and it was still kinda brassy.

The tones of my hair are too deep to get anything but yellow blonde. I gave up on blonde and decided on strawberry blonde.

I have. I am natural medium blonde but for years went dark as a teenager. First went back to blonde by a professional, but went back dark 3 years later for a couple months, then decided I liked the blonde more. So I used a color stripper, might have been Color Oops, can't remember, but I was very meticulous about it. Then put a light blonde on. Next time I went to my hair salon, the girl said I did an amazing job on my own. I was a little nervous about stripping it, but in the end, it was better to strip it once than try re-dying it multiple times to get it right. My hair didn't feel bad afterwards.

I have. It's almost white from black hair. I did just the front section because I like to put random colors in it. It's pink right now. It's damaged but not as bad as when I used.dye one time. For some reason bleach doesn't damage my hair as bad as dye

I went blonde successfully.
I have dark brown hair and had my hair done professionally and my results were amazing! I can't speak of damage too well because I went blonde at a time where I was flat ironing twice a week, so i was already a little fried, but I could've sworn my hair was shinier post-blonde.

How do you get your hair to curl back? Mine is stringy and lifeless

Weekly deep conditioning - could be any regular conditioner, just leave on for an hour, and add heat. Bi-monthly protein treatments - Nexxus Emergencee from CVS or Colorfill protein filler from Sally's (cheaper). Weekly or twice weekly oil treatments, with heat. Olive oil is fine. But of you have a color over the blonde, oil will make it fade. Shampoo only once or twice a week if necessary. Use a sulfate free shampoo if possible. And condition often.

It's a lot of work to get the life back.
