I'm a natural light ash brunette with bleached blonde hair. I have major roots right now. I'm either going to go ombre or red. I'm afraid red may be too damaging. I'm so tempted though. I know there would probably be issues with it fading too. Girls, I need some advice. And guys, does it sound pretty?
Bleach the roots. Use a temp hair dye and ombre it however you like. Wash your hair less, don't use harsh shampoo, and stay out of the sun if you can. Do not lay on anything or have anything you care about near you when your hair is wet. (I had red hair for a year lol)
I've colored my hair red for over 10 years and it was way less damaged than when I bleached it blonde recently. Red is usually hard to keep, and coloring it over blonde is even hard to keep from fading. If you do go with red, try a red by Cramer Color, found in some salons. That's what I use and it doesn't fade as fast as most reds.
