I did it once 2 years ago and I still regret it up to this day. My hair has always been rather long, even 2 years ago when I decided to lighten it a little bit. However, bleaching my hair (I didn't even bleach that buch, I changed the color from dark/medium brown to light brown) damaged it soooo much that I had to cut off 2 inches of my hair afterwards. The ends of my hair that are still lighter are so thin and I still suffer from split ends here and now. I had to cut off so much hair. Thankfully my hair was already long back then, so I didn't end up with short hair. However, it started growing healthily once I stopped coloring my hair. So if you really want to dye your hair go for a darker color. Coloring your hair darker doesn't damage your hair as much as lightening it. And be aware that you might end up with thinner hair, especially on your ends.
