    I’m planning to color my dark hair with ash brown or a light hair color. Do I really need to bleach my hair first so the hair color will show? This is going to be the first time that I’m gonna try to bleach my hair. And after bleaching, can I already color my hair with the shade that I want?

      While doing things without support for the first time may be fun, it may be wise for you to speak with a hairstylist, friend, or family member for advice. However, if you are determined to take action without additional consultation, then it would be wise for you to bleach your hair before you add a light color. This is because the dark pigments in your hair will likely not allow the light colors to show. This is normal and that way for a reason. The bleaching will remove the pigments and allow the lighter dye to show. Whatever you do, remain mindful and enjoy the results , Gelli!

    I have naturally brown hair, and recently bleached my hair to platinum blonde. As my roots grow out is there anyway to make them look a little less like grown out roots and more like a style?

      I think it depends a lot on how you pull your hair back and style it—there are ways to hide the roots. You can also do a root touch up so that it looks even as it grows out. Good luck!

      Dark hair colors will work best for you as they will be able to add color to where there is not. Light colors are less useful with grey hair. However, if you want light hair and are only doing spot colors, then really the world is yours. Choose anything you like and be bold! Thank you for your positive comment, Kay.
