I know to some people this is a no go area for asians but I did it...lightened my hair even more!! Was a risk but I'm pretty happy with the results, never had hair this light before..its not too blonde though. If it was more blonde I don't think it would look right with my skin tone, I might go gradually lighter, I might not or maybe do something crazy and dye my entire head bright purple! My parents prefer my hair natural but thats parents for you...its too boring to have your hair the same and I always need a change. Decided to not get my fringe back as I want to grow it out for summer!
