I've been dying my hair black for the last 6 years or so, and recently started using lighter and lighter dyes. The plan in the long run was to get a fade effect going all the way through from black to blonde by slowly dying the roots with increasingly lighter dyes. The trouble is I'm getting so impatient.. I just want to have my blonde back, but I've never bleached my hair, and I really don't want to - there has to be something more natural and less abrasive that I can use too to lighten off some of the more recent dyes? The dreads are about 14 months old.
