My hair is really dark naturally so I know that I will have to use bleach or a lightener first. I have not dyed my hair in about 1 1/2 years. The color I am going for is that natural orangey color. Would it be safe to just lighten with bleach and then color with box dye?

Don't use box dye. Its the devil. Go to a Sally's or something of that nature. It has way to much ammonia in it and will damage your hari more than needed.
Only put the bleach on the bottom of your hair, about an inch or so away from your scalp or you will end up with hot roots. When you feel your hair is about 3/4 the way to the color you want it lightened to then put it on your roots.
When you look at your hair and it looks light enough, leave it on for another 10 minutes. The bleach on the hair make it look lighter than it is :-)
You can ask any other questions you want of me. Hope it turns out!0
