I want to try something different. I want to lighten my hair color, but I don't know what products to use. I am going to do it myself. My hair is pretty healthy except for a little breakage from when I took out my microbraids last week. Can anyone help me.

you can try a luminizer. it comes in the clairol bottle and it is less damaging.

lorel is all conditioner based dyes....but you said that you had some breakage....so just be aware that going lighter mean that you will be stripping out the natural hair colour to achive that.

Being that my hair is black, will I get the color I choose with a luminizer or lorel? I know a lot of the time people don't get the color they want or they can barely tell that there is any change in the hair color. What can I do to make sure it turn out right?

no it will not look like the colour on the box as they only base on dark brown as the darkest.  It is very hard to get a lighter colour on black hair without bleaching first.  If you want to go to a medium brown then you should get close but much lighter than that your are going to get a brassiness after a bit.

Yeah, it's hard to get really light without bleaching. I just colored my hair this week end, and I used Bigen Expressive Colors: Cafe au lait and Golden blonde something or other [sorry, I forgot the name], but the second one was a lighter color. It actually turned out pretty good, and I like the fact that the Bigen dyes are water based, and don't use peroxide. They smell a lot better than Feria too! I wish I had left it in a little longer though, because my hair refuses to take color !!!!!!!! I have a relaxer, so I was scared to leave it in too long, but next time I'll know that my hair won't take the full effect of the color in 15 minutes
