AVOIDING "REGRET".

of course it is possible to lighten brown hair to blonde. HOWEVER! When the

hair has been dyed brown, black, violet or red.... beware of what lurks beneath as

the hair may be extremely stained with color.. inside and out. Avoid regret; by

conducting a strand test. Wrap several strands in lightener, and observe after 20 minutes.

If the hair has held on to too much depth. adjust your expectations.

Thank you for asking. OK . Let’s take her back to her natural level6 or 7. gENTLY. Step one. I like to first shampoo the hair with a chelating cleanser that ‘gently lifts’ that current shade a bit. The LOreal Metal Detox Shampoo or Malibu No More Goo shampoo work very well. Dry the hair. Now, let’s see if any of that Shades Creme lifted. If so, it is best to mix powder lightener with 10 developer. Highlight the hair. Weaving the selected strands, and place them close together.
