For as long as i can remember, i always wanted lighter hair. My hair is a dark brown with reddish highlights that can be seen in the sun. I never really liked the color of my hair and still don't, so over the years i have had my hair colored almost every color of the rainbow. My last color was supposed to be a nice light ash brown, that's not what i got. The color it turned out to be was a brassy cross between bright red and orange, Ok No!!! HAM (Hot ass mess). On top of that i paid 250.00 for that mess, from someone who was supposed to be a top colorist, right!! Not only was the color a HAM my hair broke off to about an inch, going from MBL (Mid-back length). I did not know that there were just too many processes for my relaxed, fine textured hair. Other permanent dyes did not take my hair out, but with this color, it was bleached to almost white and then a toner(adds the shade of color)was added and processed for an hour. Not good for fine, relaxed hair. I vowed to never color my hair again, but i still see beautiful color on other people and wished i could have it. So i started looking for ways to color my hair that would not damage,dry out or break my hair. I was searching the web on night and came upon this site that said there was a way to lighten hair naturally without causing damage to your relaxed or natural hair. What???
