I know the rule is typically avoid the box dye, but I’ve had good experiences with blonde before and the one step is usually easier than using developer and powder. But I’ve been experiencing something pretty weird-
This is the second time in a year that I’ve attempted to lift my already blonde hair with a garnier blonde and it’s the second time that it did almost NOTHING to my virgin hair and only lifted my bleached ends. Has anyone experienced this before? Usually box blondes are a pretty strong volume developer so I really don’t understand why nothing is happening
It may be a formula change in the dye or perhaps the developer has gone off. Do you have an old box you can compare ingredients with? Sometimes stores have old stock.
You may have better luck buying the developer separately and just using the dye portion. It's generally fairly affordable for a large bottle.
