Hair color, cannot make previously colored hair lighter, meaning if you colored your hair medium brown, you cannot then just put a dark blonde on your hair, and it will lift to a dark blonde or lighter. Hair color can only make natural/virgin hair lighter, but we can darken or tone over lightened, or bleached hair.

To make hair 4-5 shades lighter, it is recommended to visit a Hair colorist, to achieve this.

To help you better understand, what goes into choosing and blending the perfect color for YOU.

Please keep in mind, sometimes there might be a period of adjustment, to fine-tune to your hair color, for your particular hair type and porosity.
