I always said I'd never go full blonde...but from highlights to a little dip dye, my blonde slowly crept up to my roots, then I took the plunge and went full 'Blonde bombshell'. Though I love it, its super high maintenance...
When I root touch up, I brush on streaks of dye to my grown out hair, for a more natural look, and not a solid block of colour.
Its always super risky dying your hair yourself, especially with blonde...as you are striping your hair of its natural colour...and there's no going back... really. I've had a few mistakes along the way, but if your prepared for it to possibly go wrong, and want to save money, then do a bit of DIY.
I highly recommend having a toner to hand after dying your hair blonde, as its more then likely going to be a little yellow or brassy toned... depending how dark your hair was before hand. I have mousey brown hair, not particularly dark, and I always go a bit brassy, so I have an extra box of dye to hand if it ever goes full on bronze, and plenty of toner shampoo, conditioner and recently this BLEACH London, white toner, which is gorgeous!
The step by step above, is just how I apply dye, when touching up my roots, which I've found affective, in creating that natural, beach sun, kissed look...though I didn't manage to take a photo of my hair dry, so you can see the true end colour...whoops :D
Let me know if your prefer a bit of DIY, or wouldn't risk it, and would much prefer treating yourself at the Salon. Or do you know any products that dye hair really light blonde, or products that help to rid brassiness?
