My natural hair is dark brown with a little red tint. I'm 30yr old/female, I dye it blonde now.
The first time I got it don't I went to a place that was medium priced but the lady REALLY screwed up my hair! Before she got hold of my head I coulda been the poster child for perfect silky hair, no split ends.....
I picked out a great color! She put it on my hair, then washed it off after it had lightened. SHE TURNED MY ROOTS SILVER/GRAY & THE REST OF MY HAIR WAS VERY ORANGE! I almost had a heart attack! SO, now that it was that screwed up there was no way I could go with the much lighter blonde I had picked. She said she could fix it but I had to pick a toner slightly darker than the color I picked. So, I did. She put it on and you could STILL see the roots were much lighter than where the orange was and it was still brassy looking. SO, she decided she could fix THAT and put yet another toner/lightener on!
I think I did have a heart attack at this point! Well, she did get it to an "acceptable" color but the color was not even, it was darker and lighter here and there but there was NO way I was gonna let her put on anymore dye at that point! I was scared my hair was going to fall out from all that...
I went to on a trip to meet some friends and they noticed to colors being so different right away. Then said, I should get darker honey colored highlights to mask the uneveness of the color. So, I did. It did help the color but my hair was frizzel fried at this point. I had to get 6 inches cut off then just to be able to manage it into not looking like I had been hit electricity. It was still not managable.. So, I had more cut off and later more cut off.. My hair was down to my butt when I started, now it's below my chin and still fried as you can't imagine! SOOOOOOO, for your first time going platinum... Take out a loan on your house and get the best "color specialist" in the country to do your color. Ask what brand and exact color they use so, when you go to a regular salon you can tell them what they have to use on your roots. My hair grows one inch a month. I do my roots every 2 weeks. It is expensive and a pain but I LOVE being blonde (except for the fried hair which wouldn't have happened if I had went to a PRO "color specialist" in the first place).
Good luck!
