If you're planning on going pastel or any colour lighter than your current colour, pre-lightening your hair a stunning finishing result.
Why? Lightening your hair opens up the cuticle of the hair and remove some of the pigment, making it more receptive to colour. It's particularly important to pre-lighten your hair whenever you're going for a vibrant colour, a pastel, or a finishing look that is significantly lighter than your current look (i.e. going from brown to blonde). Luckily, it's easy and doesn't have to cost a fortune! Here's how to DIY at home with Nordic L1++ Ultimate Lightener.
