As the title says I finally had the courage to dye my hair. My hair was virgin, I had never died it before except for the dip dye/ombre I did last year. But that was only on the ends of my hair.
I had been thinking about dying it for a long time. My natural hair color is light brown, people would always complement my color. Still I wanted to dye my hair at least once while I'm young.

I wanted to lighten my hair a bit, but I didn't want to use bleach. Last year I really damaged my hair trying to get platinum hair. So I did a little research and decided to use the Ion Permanent Creme Color High Lift Natural Blonde 12N. This hair dye can lift up to 5 shades. Warning: it stinks and it made my eyes burn even though they never came in contact with my eyes and didn't even used it on my eyebrows.
The instructions say to mix 2 ounces of hair dye with 4 ounces of 30 or 40 volume developer. I used 30 because I didn't want to go too light.
The instructions say to leave it on for 50 minutes. I only did it for 15 because I saw my hair was light enough. This was the result.
