Bleaching Fine Hair

First of all.  I'm sorry if this has already been discussed.

Basically, I have fine hair and want to bleach it.  Hairdressers used to say that my hair was fine but there was alot of it but the last time I had it cut they said it was really thin.  I try not to pay too much attention to that as they weren't a very good salon in my opinion.  Anyway.

I also dyed my hair with a schwarzkopf semi permanent dark red colour last November too.  Is there anything I need to do to make sure there are no disasters.

Also, I've heard about people getting bald spots.  Are these permanent or will they grow back over time?

Thanks for any help.


I have fine hair (and lots of it, too!) and have never had a problem bleaching.  You might want to think about trying Colour B4 first, though, as it's a much hair-healthier alternative to bleach.  I'm going to try to get the darker colours out of my hair with it soon, but I've read that most people have had really good results with it.


I've seen Colour B4. Thought about getting it last year but didn't have money to burn so was worried it wouldn't work.  I might give it a go and then possibly take the plunge with bleach as I have already purchased the bleach and dye I want to use.
