    Default DIY hair dye question,

    I've been dying my hair red myself the past few months.

    Now I want to go blonde or light brown.

    Should I do a copper colour over the red then a light brown or just light brown over the red?

    Or something completely diferent?

    To go blonde you definitely neef to see a hairdresser. As for the brown, it depends whether you want a warm or cool brown.

    I think you need to go dark in order to go light again, because if you go straight light then the red pigments will show through and your hair will look more orange. When I went blonde from being red I had to go a dark brown and go blonde over time through foils.

    If you are going brown you can just put it over the red no need for hairdresser if you're used to doing it.

    Going blonde well you will need lots of toner if you do it straight from red & I would suggest going to hairdresser.
