My natural color is mousy dark ash blonde/light brown, but I was very light blonde as a kid. I did highlights for years but got tired of it and went auburn. Now I miss the blonde and want to go back. I tried a month ago. The stylist applied a “double blonde” dye (maybe with mild bleach?) to everything. My regrowth turned very pale yellow, almost white, and the previously dyed part was bright orange. I looked just like a maple tree in October. The stylist evened the whole thing out with another color that left me a medium-dark reddish blonde. Sometimes it looks golden blonde and other times it’s brassy. I really want to be a natural-looking light-medium blonde with only a hint of the warm color that dye boxes call “golden”. My hair feels clumpy when I shampoo it, but after conditioning it feels wonderful, healthy and still does after drying. I think it’s in good shape. Can I safely bleach the red out once and for all? I’m not interested in just highlights again – I want more coverage.
Can I change my hair color from auburn back to blonde? (Without destroying it?)?
