June 13: How To Go Lighter If You Have Dark Hair
It took this many years, for a stylist to finally tell me how to take my naturally dark hair (photo left) to a much lighter shade (photo right) that I’ve been trying to attempt every summer. The key: you have to get your hair lightened gradually but in frequent back to back sessions. That’s it! You can’t expect to go from dark black hair to light brown/blonde highlights in one session, it is impossible without severely damaging your hair.
I’m not a hair stylist nor an expert by any means, but I am sharing this newly acquired knowledge with my fellow dark haired beauties because I’m sure some of you have been struggling with the same needs as I have. Naturally, the cost will be higher since you will have to visit your hair stylist in much more frequent sessions, but if it’s something you’ve really been wanting, then it will be money well spent.
TIP: GO TO A STYLIST WHO CARES NOT ONLY ABOUT YOUR HAIR BUT ALSO ABOUT YOU.
I am currently in the transition process and in about three weeks, will probably have the color that I’m wanting for the summer. I’ll be sure to give you guys an update on my new look!
Happy (Hair) Coloring!
