Apparently some salons have access to this additive, Ola-plex?, or something. They add it to their hair dye and supposedly it's formulated to bleach/dye hair with minimal damage. If you have naturally light hair (light brown or lighter) and you want to dye it red, you won't really damage it too much anyways (minimal peroxide to open up cuticles and stuff) because that kind of dye is just depositing color particles. But if you have to bleach your hair, it depends on how dark your natural hair is and the texture and stuff. Bleaching then dying kills your hair and I'd honestly suggest a salon for that.
I bleached my own hair (did this ombre thing) from straight black (chinese) and it took me 2 passes. First one I did and every like, 3 days after for 2 weeks I did a coconut oil soak for my hair, hoping it wouldn't hate me too much. Then I bleached it again and I do a coconut oil wrap every week or so and after washing it I use this argon/coconut oil mix.0
