Permanent blonde dye without peroxide? Does it exist?by annablackPosted 7 months, 1 week ago
Hey! I've bleached the front of my hair (90s style) and I wanted it to be an actual blonde rather than bleached colour. I wanted control over the lightening process as the bottom half of my hair was grown out bleached and the top half was virgin brown so buying a blonde that does the lightening for me was not an option as I was bleaching it myself and that's doing enough damage. The only blonde I could find that only colours without lightening was a semi permanent from Clairol (nature's instinct). The main reason I've dyed over my grown out hair and only bleached the front is because I'm done with the up keep of fun colours so the last thing I want is to have to re do the blonde every 2 weeks! Anyone know if permanent blonde without lightening exists?? Thanks!!!

I do not know if a permanent blonde dye exists that does not lighten. Most people whom are trying to reach blonde hair have darker hair like light brown to black and need to lighten the hair to reach blonde. Technology might have changed from the last time used a box ultra light beige blonde permanent dye which was over 30 years ago. I was younger and less experienced then....lol. Technology these days because of regulations in the US places the ingredients on some products upon the box. Suggest might look upon boxes for a blonde permanent dye without peroxide. I did try a permanent box dye again about a year ago and results were unreliable and not even close to what was shown on box. My conclusion is do not use a box dye. If using a box dye then suggest a strand test on a very small section of hair first before committing to the whole head. After over 30 years of non-professional experience also know permanent dyes do not last and will fade over time but very very slowly. Also know after experience a box permanent dye can cause as much damage as bleaching if not using 30 volume or 40 volume bleach. Myself rely on different volumes of bleach to lighten hair. Also rely on toners only when they are able to be effective. My experience tells me box permanent dyes are unreliable. So again suggest first a strand test on a very small section of hair with anything used on the hair to alter the color.
These are my suggestions and humble opinions from over 30 years of non-professional experience and three science degrees.

Hey yeah I checked the ingredients on all the ones I looked at and all permanent had peroxide plus they show the results with photos on the box. I think you're right that most people looking for blonde are lightening their hair or roots which does make sense but I prefer to bleach myself and have control. I'll stick to semi perm or toner then as annoying as that is.
