Salt n Pepper grey to blond
« on: 13 Jul 17 / 03:23 AM »
Hello I'm new and wonder if you can help.

I have been undergoing chemo and on a break for a few months.  My hair has grown back fairly well, albeit with plenty of grey in among my naturally light warm brown. (about 70%).  I am desperate to go blonde again in a few weeks to just feel normal.  Thinking of blond highlights using bleach on a cap so the product doesn't touch my scalp.  I say this as I have a  tendency to turn brassy yellow.  My hairdresser dislikes bleach but previous attempts at lightening with high lift tints haven't always been successful. That said if anyone can recommend a good bleach - I am sure she will be persuaded.  Thanks

My hair doesn't lift well with blonde high lift tints either, it has a lot of natural yellow tones so it goes very brassy, mine reacts much better to bleach with a low vol developer and then toning. I would probably be more likely to advise you to go to a hairdresser who is confident in using bleach rather than persuading yours to do something she's not sold on! You can always stick with her for your cuts but find a colourist you like to do your highlights.

Thanks for that.  I was considering it, but she's my friend and i don't want to hurt her feelings. x

I think I'd rather hurt someone's feelings than chance them ruining my hair!  ;) (have a read of the bleaching disasters thread if you need convincing!)

Toning can be really key to a good blonde as well though if your hair tends towards yellow. A good purple or silver shampoo or some violet direct dye mixed into white conditioner can do wonders!

(I'll let someone else recommend a bleach as I've not lightened mine for a while and I can't remember the ones I liked!)
