I didn't decide to dye my hair from black to white over night. It took a lot of thinking and researching. And after months and months of doing so, I decided to go for it. Let me just say that I am no colourist or professional hair stylist. This is just my own experiences and all of the time I seeked advice from professionals. Plus I had a stylist friend help me :)
So this was my hair before. All black and all natural. I had not dyed or had any chemical procedures done to my hair in over 5 years so in a way I was working with all virgin hair from root to tip. This was good for me because I'm going to lighten my hair quite a few times.
After the first bleach lightening, this is how my hair turned out. Pretty light but a nasty yellow colour. I could've toned it to remove some of the brassiness but I choose to skip it and wait a til after all my lightening was done.
These were some of the products used in my hair.
