Hi All,

Im thinking of changing my hair colour and going back to my natural brown colour.Its alot lighter than the Dark Brown/ Black ive been using for years. Not that i hate the colour of my hair. i really just want to see whats it like a bit lighter.

So im thinking of using one of those home kits From boots that lifts the colour from your hair. Before i even think of doing it. Has anyone used these before that have been as dark as me. And how succesful are they.

I could go to my hair dressers but it prob would cost me well over £100, which right now i just can not afford  it.

i have used them there quite good but there is also a good chance your natural hair isnt the colour it used to be, i started dying my hair at 12 when i was a beautiful natural blond i went natural again at 15 and discovered my hair had gone choclate blonde (almost brown) so i started bleaching it blonde tyhe dying it again then i home stripped it from ebony black now i havnt had it dyed in over 2 years and im a natural red head

if you have used any dye with peroxide your hair will go ginger because peroxide cant be stripped out of your hair although unlike mine the gingerness should grow out over time

hope that helps

Go to the hairdressers for advice first
they may take a test cutting first to help you know the outcome before you proceed
i would also suggest a model evening for the apprentices or phone any leading hair colour house like loreal aat hammersmith they all need models for colouring courseso

lastly if you do proceed yourself dont forget to do a skin allergy test first

The hair dye ive been using has never been permenant colour. only 28 washes. and as ive never lighted my hair. i dont think any of my hair dye's would have peroxide in them.

I've used colour B4 and cant recommend it enough!
My hair was in bad condition after several bleachings by the hairdresser,tried that and it left my hair soft and colour free!!

yep colour b4 is the best at the moment for removing dye at home, ive just used it to take out black to go back to my natural red, u best get 2 boxes though if ur hair is long, it says its safe to use on the box its not the same as dye or the chemicals thats in dye, only thing is tho it totally stinks lol once uve used the stuff take the empty bottles out of ur house rather than leaving it in the bin, it reeks that much ull have a lingerin fart smell if u keep it in ur house, and finally its sold cheaper in superdrug, get extra strength if ur hair is really quite dark.

I was going to use colour B4 but checked out the reviews for it and they weren't at all good.
Most people ended up with ginger hair(nothing wrong with that mind you-but they weren't happy) xo

yes it leaves a copper tone as it completely strips the colour, but its perfectly safe to put hair dye over it straight away for example if u r naturally brunette u can use a brown hair dye after and it covers the copper
