Hi Hair Doctors,
I had a level 5 base on my hair with highlights and found it a little dark, so had my hair bleached. I am now a level 6 extra natural dark blonde and when it fades it feels too light.
I also want natural looking sun-kissed highlights but I keep getting told my hair has to be bleached, is this correct? My hair is in the worst condition it has ever been in and I don't think it can take any more bleaching.
What is the most natural looking colours in level 5 and 6?
It’s true that it can be difficult to highlight over previously bleached hair especially as you already have a darker base, however I believe that anything is possible! A suggestion may be to have soft lowlights through your hair with a slightly darker hue all over. I would definitely recommend going to a salon for a consultation so a technician can accurately assess your hair condition and your natural colouring to choose the best hue for you. Regular treatments and a good haircut will help improve the condition. Treatments at HOB salons start from £5.50.
