Dramatically changing the colour of your hair can do some major damage to it, particularly if you’re going from dark brown to light blonde. Speeding up the lightening process will put your hair at risk of breakage and split ends.
How can I lighten my hair without damaging it?
Natural bleaching agents like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, chamomile tea, or cinnamon and honey can lighten hair gently and naturally with minimal damage. Rinse your hair in a solution of warm water and one or more of these lightening agents, then sit in the sun to dry.
How many sessions does it take to go from black to blonde?
To go from black hair to a dark blonde, you’ll need two or three sessions. To go to medium blondes, 4 or 5 sessions. To go to light blonde, 6 or 7 sessions. Each session involves time, different hair dyes or toners to neutralize unwanted tones, and intensive moisturizing treatments to restore hair health.
Will your hair ever be the same after bleaching it?
Bleached hair will never be the same after a bleaching process because its internal structure will have changed forever. Therefore, it’ll only go back to normal as it grows.
What is the safest way to bleach hair?
Use a low-volume bleach developer, never higher than 20 volume, and ensure it doesn’t sit on your head for too long to prevent breakage. Maintain your blonde color and extend the time between bleaching by using a semi-permanent hair dye.
