Many people ask me, "How did I go from brunette to blonde without bleach?" It can be very shocking when you realize how many different things you need to consider in order for hair to grow. There are genetics, health, diet, cosmetics and more. I will outline a few tips that will help you with the process of how I went from brunette to blonde without bleach.
Do You Have Naturally Dark Hair?
One thing that you should consider is your coloring. Do you have naturally dark hair? If so, then you probably already know that it can be very difficult to maintain a gorgeous dark hair without resorting to hair bleaching products. You may want to consider a natural hair dye, one that does not contain any chemicals.
What if you do not have naturally dark hair? How can you get a beautiful natural looking blonde color? Your diet plays a big role in the color of your hair. Foods such as coffee, tea, colas, blueberries, dark chocolates, nuts, sea salt, etc. All of these contain chemicals that react with natural hair and make it darker.
Some Products On The Market:
Also, there are some products on the market that contain high levels of bleach. They are designed to lighten hair quickly and easily. Before you use one of these products on your hair, you should do your research and find out how harsh the concentration of bleach is. Most products will use a concentration of about 2%, but using anything higher or lower will actually cause damage to your hair.
Another important thing to consider is that you should only use products that are specifically designed for use on dark hair. You do not want to use products that contain high concentrations of any type of bleach. Some products can be very harsh on even the healthiest of hair. Also, I would recommend avoiding any type of hair product that contains ammonia.
Applying Natural Shampoo And Conditioner:
The best thing that I could do for my hair was to use a natural product that contains aloe vera. It works great on any type of hair, and it helps promote hair growth. It can also help to give your hair a nice healthy shine.
After a couple weeks of applying this natural shampoo and conditioner every day, I noticed a difference in my hair. My hair started to grow back a lot thicker than it had before, and it was much brighter. I no longer had red hairs. I went from brunette to blonde without bleach in only a few weeks.
Use Anything To Color Your Hair:
Remember if you are going to use anything to color your lighten hair without bleach that you read everything that comes with it. If you are going to use any type of dyes or bleaches, be sure that you know what kind of side effects they may have. I went ahead and used all of them on my hair, but I felt fine afterwards.
Another thing that I did was change up the products that I used. I was using a lot of shampoo that I purchased at the local supermarket. I was using a ton of conditioner that I bought at the drugstore as well. All of these products were costing me a fortune, especially since I was using them twice a day. It was costing me too much money, and I wasn't seeing any results. I wanted to go on a diet so I could lose weight, but when I started using hair products, I got even heavier than I was before.
Only Used Hair Products:
I eventually decided that I was either going to lose my hair or dye it. Either way I knew that I didn't want to deal with the problems that hair products created. The first thing I did was stop using all of them. After that I gave them up completely. Instead of bleaching my hair, I simply shampooed it everyday.
After doing that I only used hair products that were for dying my lighten hair without bleach. That way I didn't have to worry about the chemicals in hair products having an effect on me. There are still times when I use the shampoo and I notice a few things. One of them is that my hair starts to get a little dryer than usual.
Other times I notice that my hair seems to be a little greasy. I don't really have a problem with that as long as I don't stay in the shower for too long. I still use conditioners, just not as often because I think it is helping my hair. I still use hair products every other day, and I still try to do the changes I went from brunette to blond without bleach.
