hi welcome,
There’s a easier way. You can to lighten your hair using 3% hydrogen peroxide.
Peroxide is simply hydrogen and oxygen or H202 (a water molecule with an extra oxygen atom). When used in a weaker solution, peroxide can be used to lighten hair. Peroxide is used in hair lightening formulas but it can be used on its own to achieve lighter colored hair.
thanking you

Hi Welcome to HealthCareMagic
Hydrogen peroxide is an chemical agent used in the debridment of wound, it removes the dead and decaying cells from the body, hence used in the wound dressing... It is not an decolorizing agent.. any Dye or coloring agent is harmful for the hair growth, also there may be hair fall, this is due to effect of the chemicals on the root of the hairs in the scalp.. avoid hair coloring and dying...

Take Care...
