So I Lightened My Hair Like Last Year. I've Always Had Natural Blonde Hair, But After I Lightened My Roots Came In A Dark Dirty Blonde. I Want To Re-Dye My Hair A Light Blonde. Not Really A Yellow Blonde But More Of A White Blonde. Any Suggestions/Help?
Okay Thank You!

If you're going more than two or three shades lighter I would go to a salon. Going light is super hard on your hair and more often than not you'll end up needing a toner, which is something box dye can't supply.
Save up, go to a salon. But if you HAVE to do it at home, remember 2 things. Bleach always makes your hair look lighter when it's in your hair then you rinse it out and it's not ready, do a test strip in the bang area to rinse and dry before rinsing it all out. Also blonde comes after orange so just leave it on longer and don't freak out.
haha ok thanks! my hair is already blonde but just the roots are darkish
you might end up spending more if you do it yourself because of how many times you would have to do it. the hair you would have to get cut from all the damage and then good conditioners after. be careful! and good luck! its a hassle of a process getting that light and not have it brassy

Okay Thank you! So my best choice would be to get it done in A salon and just use good products?
Especially since its a retouch you don't want to do it yourself! You will end up overlapping the lightener w the previous lightened hair because you can't see it that close doing it yourself. That creates a line of demarcation (a band around your hair) and you might end up frying your hair. Blonde is a hard color to archive! If your color doesn't come out the right way you have to end up going to salon. They consider this a color correction! And some salons charge 200+ plus to fix your mistakes. I'm a professional go to a salon! Blonde is high maintaince if you're not up for that don't go lighter. Your hair will need moisture so invest in a good shampoo and conditioner plus treatment. Redken has some great options!
Thank You So Much!! Im Not Sure I Wanna Go Really Light Now...Maybe just An Ash Blonde Or Extra Light Ash Blonde...
