Rule 3: Stay Within Two Shades of Your Natural Color
Colorists agree: When dyeing your hair at home, don't go more than two shades lighter or darker. This is especially important for brunettes who want to go blond. "If your hair is dark and you want to lighten it," says Saboski, "I suggest you make an appointment at a salon, since at-home color will be ineffective in lightening your hair."
That's because at-home color kits don't contain the strong chemicals needed to radically change your color. "There's a reason hair colorists have to go to school, pass a test, and get a license from the government," says White. "The reason is that the chemicals needed to perform complicated hair color changes can severely damage hair and scalp alike."
