I’m wondering something. Just how blonde can one become with just highlights/ something else? I have mid to dark brown hair with half head done. They are apparently the lightest without using bleach? I don’t know? I can’t really remember she said? What could l do with my hair now? It doesn’t really have much sliver/white. No re-growth as such. thank you.
Yeah, that's it, you could have a few foils to start with, see if you like it.
I've got a good bit of grey coming through, so the lighter it is the less maintenance but still have to get it done around every 6/7 weeks. Does dry hair out I've found, so good conditioner or those intense conditioners every now and again. Keep meaning to try the coconut oil as a deep conditioner. On other threads people seem to rave about it.
Thank you both. I’ve got the lightest highlights that aren’t bleached ( apparently!?) I’m trying a new much younger ( than me) hairdresser next week so l’m hoping she will be up for experimenting a bit! 😊
I have a full head of highlights, a mix of bleach and one or two blonde shades. From brown hair to achieve a full blonde look probably took three full heads? I would now say though highlights alone I am fully blonde - blonde hair lightens even more in the summer hence the progression and needing a few full heads (I probably get my highlights done every 10 weeks)
