    Ive been dying my hair brunette for the past 2 years (i am naturally very very fair) but have now decided to try to dye it a light\medium blonde.
    I havent dyed my hair brunette for around 4 months so it washed out a lot and my roots grew through and i was a light brown colour with blonde roots.. until yesturday!
    I used colour B4 frequent use to strip the build up of colour. It did go lighter, but only to a dark blonde with brassy tones. I washed it through with purple shampoo which did minimize the brassy colours. However, its still a dark blondeish colour and i want to get it lighter.
    Colour B4 says not to use permanent dye until a week after, only a semi-permanent, because it can turn your hair very dark/black. However, if i was to use a permanent dye (the day after using colour b4) in a very light shade.. Possibly this one..

    What would be the result? Im sure it couldnnt turn my hair dark again could it?
    Has anyone used colour B4 and then dyed their hair with a permanent dye straight away?

    I ve bleached after colourb4 and it worked without problems but I ve read that dying afterwards can make it darker than you wanted.
