Dear friends & clients,
When your hair is dark (from coloring it) , you cannot go lighter by simply applying a lighter shade. Color doesn’t lighten color. You could put a lighter color on it, however nothing will happen except the root area(where new growth/ natural hair is) will be lighter. So the only way to get lighter hair is to decolorize it with lightener and them deposit the color over top of it. That my friends is what I call a color correction, plan on spending big $$$. The other more reasonable/affordable option would be to add highlights and over time the color would become lighter.
