we use it quite a bit in my salon however only a shade or two lighter is ever achieved, ive never hear of one bing used to go literally brown 2 blond, i dare say it would help you on ur way, but im really not sure what shade you would achieve, especially if u have a lot of build up, we use it mainly on colour correction etc. maby there are specific ones which u shud use if u r going frm dark 2 blond, u could just gradually gradually do it, a few streaks at a time, i dare say ur hair would be nackerd after though, ive recently gone frm about a 5/6 RV to platinum blond, i was a nice shade of copper for a few weeks, felt like walking round with a sign on my head say "under construction" good luck!! :hug:

i dont know an awful lot about colour correction but i would think it would take a long time for you to get back to blonde and u couldnt do it all at once it would be a very slow process making sure u use lots of conditioning along the way

I got my hair from a (5 base) coloured with wella reds intensive range to a blonde. Although did take a while, basically my hairdresser started by giving me highlights using bleach on one foils, and magma on the second foils. Yes it was a ligh coppery colour first but gradually it had gone a nice blonde colour. My hair was shortish at the time so didnt look too bad whilst "under construction" !
Id suggest having a few highlights and gradually build them up.
