There are many different beliefs on dying hair. Many people believe that dying your hair is completely ruining it. To maximize your chances of safe hair dye, go to a salon. When getting your hair done at a salon, you usually get highlights or lowlights, not an all-over job. This is safer for your hair because less hair is being affected with the dye. However, for someone with dark brown hair to go to blonde, means that bleach must be used. Bleach is very harmful to your hair, and I do not recommend it. Bleach removes every layer of protectant on your hair; it strips each strand so it has no color. This way the color you want can take over the strand and be seen. When bleach is not used, hydrogen peroxide is used. This also strips your hair’s natural protectants, but not as bad as bleach.
