natural red to white-blonde, tips and tricks appreciated!by xalatohPosted 2 years, 9 months ago
hello all! my boyfriend informed me that he'd be interested in trying to go white-blonde. (it's not set in stone yet because it is so much effort to upkeep and i barely have the time or money to do my own hair lmao.) he is a natural ginger with a thin and loose curly texture. i've done this transition on pre-lightened hair, natural brown hair, as well as hair dyed the blackest box dye; it's all a rather similar process and i've worked out my own personal method. but i was wondering if it was any different on individuals with naturally red hair? i can't quite find a definitive answer, and most posts on here asking the question are referencing locks that are artificially red. i wouldn't want to make him a promise and then have it turn out nearly impossible to fulfill (and end up with an ugly color result). thanks in advance!

Naturally red hair is usually easy to lighten, especially if it's more of a ginger or strawberry blonde colour as opposed to auburn. If it's all natural then it should be pretty straight forward. I'd use a 20 volume developer. I'd advise doing a strand test to get the timing right and also see the effect it has on his hair's texture.

hmm, as a child I was a real copper, a red-head and my hair has faded to a very warm dark blonde. I do highlight it, but the tendency is that is stays longer in the warm yellow tones than my daughter's hair, which is darker but has no red.I have sticked to golden highlights, but one hair-dresser did do seem white bonde highlights on me once, so it must be possible to go white blonde, with a very good bleach, foils and heat (I think she used blonder, foils, and heat to achieve this). As above, strand test before is a good idea.
