I'm looking to achieve a copper blonde shade similar to this, if a bit darker/browner. The problem is that I'm Asian, therefore have naturally black hair, and currently it's a very dark shade of red with brown highlights--so I'm guessing the only way I can achieve that is by bleaching it to a light blonde first, and then dyeing it again. However, I'd really rather not have to walk around for two weeks with blindingly blonde hair, since it wouldn't suit me very well, but at the same time, I know it's an intense process that could do some damage. :\ Still, when I went in to get my highlights done professionally, the stylist had to bleach them first, and added the colour right after, and everything was fine. My hair is generally pretty tough.|
So, is it really a bad idea to do this in one sitting with box dye? I know they advise against it, but I also figure it's a different case for everyone. Thank you for the help. ♥
(PS: No opinion!comments on the colour itself, please. XD It's a pretty colour, gosh dang it, and I will achieve it someday.)
Edit: I know it's bad form to delete posts, but crisis pretty much averted. Received the advice I wanted from my sister, but thanks for all the opinions, guys!
