So bleach blonde hair with quote big dark roots.
Thinking of going a more natural blonde, what hair dye colour will I need?
I will be doing it at home. Tia

ur best bet if dyeing at home is to go for a subtle ombre. i would get a dye beginning with a jumber 8 for this.

it will be difficult to match the roots and bleach blond up on your own.

you could try putting a base 9 or 10 all over however ur ends will likely still be lighter.

what kind of colour are you hoping to be, do you have a pic?

What about the kit to strip the colour back and start again?

you cant strip bleach. bleach takes the colour pigment out of the hair.

i would do a subtle ombre in that case. go for a base 9 or 8. backcomb ur hair just below your root line and colour ur roots.

if u have a wide tooth comb u could pick the top section up and.comb a few low lights through the underneath to blend it a bit better.

My understanding is that you have to put ash tones in your hair rather than reddish that will go orange on a very light base...
