Sorry for it being so belated ^^''
I always had either dark brown or dark red/purple colors in my hair - never light or ashy - and I really wanted a change. Tbh I never dyed my hair light because my parents never approved of me coloring my hair any color that was not dark brown haha
But this time I just did it anyways :P However, I did darken it again... so much for trying to be a rebel (lol)
This was the result:
An older photo but it's quite accurate to my current color.
I have been using Palty hair dye for the past 4 years now and I must say I can't ever go back to the local drugstore brands that isn't an Asian hair coloring product!

I find that palty and prettia just work so well with Asian hair because the color stays and evens out your hair color, not to mention that the color continues to get lighter even after dying your hair ;)
So here is the process of how I did my hair:
1. clipped up the to-be-bleached streaks/highlights/peekaboo spots
|I also had highlights in my bangs as well, which you will see at the bottom of this post.|
What the bleach box contains(minus the black bowl and brush):
2. pour bottle 2 into container
3. mix, it will have a strong bleach smell
4. add tube contents and mix
5. apply to hair that was previously isolated for bleaching
(use aluminum foil so the bleach does not touch any other areas)
The two photos to the right are the bleach results.
I left it in for approx 30min, eyeballing how light I wanted it to be.
Next I colored my as usual with the two caramel brown boxes. I left that color in for almost an hour.
In different lighting, showing the bleached areas:

So depending on the lighting, it could have a reddish or orange tone to it.
After I did this my parents freaked out because in a couple days my hair actually got lighter and turned into this:

So like a good girl I dyed it darker using a random drugstore box in dark brown T^T (I think it was from L'oreal)
But then it faded again and you can see how it looks in my previous posts!
Now my hair has less of a red tinge to it and at times looks ashy. I like the random areas of blonde in it too! Thanks to Jenny for helping me do my hair! Couldn't have done it without cha girrrrl ;)
The trouble now though is that my roots are growing out and I will have to figure out how to touch them up without having to re-do this entire process >>
So yup, it's harder to show how I bleached the areas and created highlights with a pictorial but I hoped this helped somewhat haha
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
