Welcome to the first of many steps I am both slowly and eagerly taking to my newest hair color.
I began with extremely dried and grown out bleach blonde. The goal in this step was to get my head of hair to one color; possibly the same as my roots or a shade darker. (I'm a natural ‘deep’ blonde.) Due to the color that I'm trying to plan and figure out, I needed to get rid of any lighter hair. Also, my bleached and treated tint needed to go.
After about 25 minutes, (I start the time after I'm completely finished rather when I first start applying.) I was left with a very ashy brown. The photo above pulls a red hue, but overall the shade was true to it's medium/ash light brown. I mixed both bottle of color together and distributed the liquids evenly to each developer bottle.
