I have a challenging task for you and would like your input. I would like to go blonde as I would like a drastic change and this is my story.
Prior to seven weeks ago I had a medium brown hair colour which was dyed at a hairdresser.
Five weeks ago, I went to a hair dresser where I told them my request. This was the beginning of my nightmare. They stripped my whole head and they bleached it - leaving my hair in a variety of reddish and yellowish tones. They then told me that was all they could do - but I knew they wanted to close up and go home. So I was told to come back in two weeks and then they can make me proper blonde.
After crying myself from embarrassment esp the fact that I have to walk around looking like a floozy, I just couldn't do it. I seriously looked terrible and at this stage was fuming at the hairdresser for not taking in a interest.
Two days later in a serious attempt to fix this mess and be able to walk in public, I had a wella - med ash brown demi permanent colour put in my hair by another hairdresser. This is currently now fading and the bleach colour is starting to come through.
This has now been almost 4 weeks, I am bored with my hair and my dream is still to go blonde. I don't want it white blonde or Marilyn Monroe blonde. I know its a gradual process but if it's been done on other ladies, I don't understand why it work on me. How do I dye my hair without damaging it? And how long should it take before my hair is blonde?
I still want to go blonde - can you help me?
I have very strong and healthy hair. I use salon professional shampoos and conditioners and treatments on my hair only. Can you assist me?
