I think it will only lighten if it contains peroxide or similar.

Tis a dangerous game, home hair dye! I would seriously consider either saving for a pro job or staying brunette.

i would try it as it is so much cheaper but be prepared to end up at the hairdressers

I'm naturally mousey brown and I've been dyeing my hair blonde myself for years, never had any disasters touch wood! Maybe get it done professionally first and then use home dye to do your roots?
Have actually had enough of blonde now and am in the process of growing it out and seeing my natural hair colour for the first time in 15 years shock
