I have been bleaching out my hair from dark brown to golden blonde for several months now. I do love it, but the up keep is just too much for me to handle. Doing it on my own is too much of a pain (I've done it before, and while it looked fine it took me all afternoon to bleach and then tone), and I can't afford to go to the salon every few weeks to keep it up, and when I do it only looks good for 2 weeks before I have dark hillbilly roots again. So I am wanting to go to something that will require less maintenance, and I can easily keep up with myself. I am thinking of going to a nice auburn type color that wouldn't should my roots to drastically. The question is, I have a couple months of growth of my roots right now, and the rest is bleached obviously. Can I buy supplies from Sally's Beauty and dye my hair like normal all over and get a decent result? Or am I going to end up with orange hair and still near black roots? If I went with a darker color closer to my natural color, would it be any easier to do at home or any different? Or if I am going back to a darker color and I going to have to go to a salon the first time? And can I upkeep it myself at that point? Any advice would be helpful! Thanks MeFites?
