Dyeing Dark Natural Hair Blonde WITHOUT Bleaching!

While all of our posts here at BHI is for everyone, this particular post will definitely have the hair coloristas and aspiring hair coloristas up on their toes! So while surfing around YouTube the other day, I stumbled upon this tutorial by Tricia Montaque on how to dye dark natural hair to a honey blonde color.

Now, for most of us with dark natural hair (particularly those of us with fine to medium strands) we know that dyeing our hair to be a lighter color than it naturally is can potentially cause serious damage.Why? Well, mostly because of the bleach that is used to lift the dark natural color of our hair to allow for the desired lighter color to shine through.

But, what if I told you that you do not need bleach to dye your hair a lighter color? Intrigued yet? Keep on reading to see how YouTuber, Tricia Montaque, slays this hair coloring tutorial!

Products Used To Achieve This Hairstyle

Hair Color– L’Oreal HiColor Hilights for Dark Hair in Natural Blonde.

Color Developer– Salon Care 40 Volume Developer Crème.

Hair Color Applicator Bottle– To easily apply the hair color without too much mess.


Comb– To distribute color evenly.

The good thing about this hair dyeing tutorial is that it can be used on any type of hair, whether the strands are fine, medium, or coarse. This is also a good hair coloring method for transitioning and relaxed ladies alike.

Even though transitioning and relaxed ladies may have weaker strands, compared to natural haired ladies due to relaxing chemicals and demarcation lines, omitting hair bleach makes this transition from dark to blonde hair a bit gentler.

Here is Tricia Montaque working here hair coloring magic on her model in the video below!

I don’t know about you, but it’s really awesome to know that I can actually have a blonde color without bleaching my hair. Comment below and let us know if you would ever try this.

Kashmere Noel

I wouldn’t call that blonde; it’s copper. Little bit misleading for those who want to go blonde blonde

Nyca Anthony

I was able to dye my darkest brown hair honey blonde without the use of bleach..used textures&tones lightest blonde

Anais Owens

YES! So was I. I just recently dyed over my reddish color with that exact color you mentioned and I LOVE it! I am going to have a video about it up very soon. http://www.youtube.com/curlsofinnocence

Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn’t the chemicals in the dye and developer technically still be bleaching your hair to get it lighter?

Kaysi-May Alexandra Foster

Aren’t the chemicals inside hair dye still bleach and still damaging?

Tomeka Justice

BLACK PEOPLE DON’T NEED BLONDE HAIR

Tamara Springle Wellington

Well some people like to try different colors :/

Tomeka Justice

YEAH I KNOW I THINK DARK HAIR IS THE BEST

Tomeka Justice

MY MOTHER HAS THAT BLONDE HAIR JUST BECAUSE SHE HAS BLUE EYES SHE THINKS IT LOOKS GOOD I THINK SHE LOOKED BETTER WITH HER NATURAL BLACK HAIR

Jamie Carter-Bailey

So do I i love dying my hair black makes my green eyes pop and give me a more exotic look

Dominque Rochelle

Some black people are born with blonde hair though. My uncle was.

Tomeka Justice

RIGHT IF YOU’RE BORN WITH IT THAT’S DIFFERENT BUT THOSE I’VE SEEN LOOKS STRANGE IN MY EYES DARK WITH BLONDE HAIR

Persian Giovanni

Some people can pull it off, and others can’t.

Terri SpolnMe Daughtrey

The Melanesians of Solomon Islands are the darkest skinned of all people and they are born with blonde hair and blue eyes.

The Expatriate
The Expatriate

You do know that there are black people that are born with naturally blonde hair, right? Google search Melanesians of the Solomon Islands

Angeline Franklin

I would luv to go blonde but since I’ve done da big chop I would be afraid of breakage

Krystal White

Glad some people don’t base their opinion of THEIR look of someone else opinion…

Malakah Angellia Gladston

Why would anyone want to do that? Oh the blond chasers :/

Jane

I always thought that these products were just minimising the steps by doing the bleaching and color deposit in one step. How is this better than having the two steps done separately by a professional?

Malakah Angellia Gladston

eeew! The color on that lady was horrible in that video, there was absolutely nothing attractive about that at all, then the EYEBROWS??? Color DID NOT fit her complexion AT ALL. I just don’t understand the obsession with black women and blond hair.

Nessa Rene'e

It’s not just black women. Many of the white women you see are not natural blondes.

Malakah Angellia Gladston

I don’t care about white women. Why is it when the fingers are pointed at US >>BLACK WOMEN<< we ALWAYS point to what the white women are doing??? I don't care what white women do to their hair…they were naturally born with STRAIGHT blond, brunette etc hair. You DON'T see them walking around with afro extensions or wigs on

Nia

You should really ONLY care what’s on your head. Why does it concern you what other blacks do. It’s nice to have a change every now and then.

Julisesa Shaw

I’ve been a blonde for two years and never bleached my hair

Lauren Ralph

Omg I’m excited to read this !

Alicia Christopher

Clairol textures and tones. 3 applications in 3 mths N mine turned a yellow blonde.

Zandra Reed

I was told by my colorist that that specific hair color has bleach built in the actual hair color itself, so i suggest people do there research because if thats the case you are jus eliminating a step but are still using bleach

Crystal Renee

This is true! I got my hair red this way…the CHI hair color already has lightners in it. Ppl still need to be careful

Ayiti Leeleen Cherie

Y go blonde in the 1st place?
Matter of fact, it’s your body. Mess it up if you want.

Danielle Jones-Higginbottom

Anna the first one is the color I use

Enjoli A Johnson

Why are black people dying their hair blonde?

Jamila Kelly

blonde.
…..well it does actually work on some girls ill admit that. Me. ..no

VJ RLester

This is not natural because you are still using CHEMICALS. To bleach hair naturally all you need is hydrogen peroxide and honey.

Chelle Anderson

It’s a chemical also. If the hair bond is rearranged in any manner you are no longer at a natural state. Just over curly. Honey is your conditioning agent. Anytime color is removed from the hair using any kind of chemical you are no longer natural. Peroxide. .is a chemical. It cannot be ingested it is harmful it is a element used in haircolor. The damaging element you want to stay clear of is ammonia. Taking out color, relaxing, texturing of the hair while at a natural state will leave you no longer natural only over curly.

Rana

Why do sisters have to police other sisters like this? About what’s natural and what’s not. How about if you just roll out of bed and don’t do anything to your hair, and let it land where it lands, then that’s the only way you’re natural?! Water is a chemical too, two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. But you still put that in your hair don’t you? Even Rastas wash their hair. How ’bout, if you’re not a rasta, then you’re not natural!

Jamila Kelly

honestly if you’re worried about how top bleach your hair without “causing too much damage” then you shouldn’t bleach it. Period. If you’re one of those people, however, who are like “hair is hair” then more power to you because you’re right, and know the risks and are ok with it :p

Joyce Jackson

I hate this trend not cute at all.

Ashley Iainttakinnoshit Plummer

So tired of this color and red. Do something different

Ms Moneyca

Everybody shouldnt though

Pricedhigh MichCole

Why????

Nazir Bell

My mom dye her hair and it good on her

Persian Giovanni

Cool

CMF

Would this work for red tones as well? I don’t think I’m a candidate for blonde, but have been eyeing cranberry for a while.

Moloko MLk Moshatane

This post was for those who love blonde. Y’all grab chairs and sit down now……

Heather-Gem Bee

WHY????

Janice Roye Walker

I love bleaching my hair golden blonde sometimes i just like a change its not a big deal once u know how to care for your hair

Ray Mooring II

I’ve never seen so many negative post on an opinionated post. If you don’t like it why post at all?

Yalakesen Baaheth

cow pee…..

Alicia WJ

If its not that color already no need to conform to.something your not. Black people are not white so stop trying to be.

Bridget Thompson Ewing

My blonde looks fabulous on me gonna go a tab lighter.

Nikki TheBeautiful

I like your blonde too, I’m considering recoloring mine:)

Bridget Thompson Ewing

sometimes when your getting older you need to make a change with hair color.

Allisia Tharrington

Ladies this article is extremely misleading. The product used to color the hair is volume 40 cream developer which is is another word for bleach please do not be mislead.

Nikki TheBeautiful

Omg people can dye their hair whatever they like, it’s not for you to like or anyone’s approval honestly. Some black women do n’t dye their hair blonde to emulate white women but for a change of color & they love changing haircolors. You don’t like, then don’t look. I’ve colored my hair honey blonde,deep auburn, & considering deep purple highlights it’s not anyone’s head but mine.

Nessa Rene'e

I hate that orange color

Splendorious Splendor

Developer is caustic and damages the hair shaft. Just use cow’s urine like the Dinka tribes.

Portia Motsage

Interesting!!

Juliana MO Garoes

Tip keep it longer than 30minutes then it comes out perfect ask the expert!

M

EXACTLY!

Rikki Jaye

Its funny how the same women saying “stop trying to be white” are the ones with weave? Lol no more said.

Terri SpolnMe Daughtrey

The Melanesians of Solomon Islands are the darkest skinned of all people and they are born with blonde hair and blue eyes.

If its a developer involved its bleach… for the record

Melissa

hello,
My nephew is biracial. He recently asked me to dye (with food coloring) his hair green, how can I naturally lighten his hair without damaging it? Homemade if possible. Thank you.

Cassandra M.Woods

40 vol developer is just as bad and box due is horrible. May as well use “bleach”…

Ginger Brown

Amanda Smith
