Hi I am new here, like everyone else posting in this thread. ;DI am a mother of 5
and a SAHM to a 17 year old, 8, 7, 5, and 15 month old. I have hair almost to my waist and have been using box dyes since I was about 16.
My hair is naturally a very dark blonde and I usually buy the lightest ash blonde that Loreal carries. As I have gotten older it seems it is not lightening my hair as much as it used to. I am assuming my natural hair color has gotten darker over the years and that is why it isn't working as well? I can not afford to go to a salon every 4-6 weeks, or even for an initial coloring, so I need to find a way to do my own hair at home. I am hoping to get it about 2 shades lighter than what the box dye is acheiving at my roots. Also I feel it is much oranger than I would like even though I am using a extra light ash. Hoping to find some help here. BTW my hair is in pretty good condition except for the ends, but I would not want to damage the ends any more. The ends are probably as light as I want them anyway. Just need to add the right color to them. Below is a picture I took in the car so not direct lighting. The color I am wanting to acheive is the exact color o the light ash blonde boxes.
