T Montgomery: Question-- is it fine to do a care at home keratin treatment after my hair has been bleached... I have naturally curly hair and no relaxer ---my birthday at the end of October just wondering hopefully I can get an answer LOL...

T Montgomery: THANKS Elle.... best video ever... I'm now almost to platinum blonde... I don't want to go that much in depth with the roots as you did on this video ---because I want to enjoy my blond a little bit more... but at least I know how to do the back now.... Others make it so complicated but you actually made it easy !!! Thanks so much!💗

Kristin Johansen: You mentioned for fine/thin hair to do a mix of baby highlights and balayage, do you recommend doing baby lights first then but balayage over? Thank you!

Ashley Mertens: GIRL you just saved me so much hassle and money. I, like many other commenters, was really skeptical and thought I'd blow this. I love my platinum hair and didnt want to risk messing it up. But I gave it a go and my dark root grow out looks so natural and soft now!

Kelly Tennant: Can you do this if your hair is all over blonde to start with

Kristine P: Hi from the Chi, Silvia! Started following you and watching all your tutorials- you are awesome! Thank you! I need some serious help though, guys... Please. I am in need of a hair overhaul and really want to DIY it; the whole job (I just really want to). Currently, I have roots that are about a level 5, scattered with grays and are about 3-4 in grown out. I also had a decent balayage about a year ago, but it looks like she had brought highlights up to break it up on top. Down from my ugly roots, where the highlights reached, there are about 2-3 inches of old roots that were surely dyed (also about a 5, but with more auburn tones- not sure if this was permanent color, but I assume so). Then, there is blonde through the length. This blonde is dirty looking, golden, almost yellow (maybe an 8-9). I would lean toward calling it brassy, but it is not bright, for sure. In the back of my hair, near the occipital bone, is dark color, too, like a 5 or 6, depending on the light.
I have watched video after video and here's my hang up:
What is my step 1? I want all the length brought to one blonde 'color'. I'm aiming for ash, as I'm cool toned. Can I lift/bleach all the hair length, despite all the different levels that run through it? I hate the red tones in the brown and the yellow in the blonde- should I leave the lighter pieces in and lift/bleach them too or are they to be left out of the bleach/lifting process? (most of the videos are for those who have a really nice blonde they want to keep). Do I just go into the roots as within this tutorial, or should I do something different because there are grays? (Less than 50%). Please, any advice will go a long way. The realization that there are so many colors and dimensions + virgin at the top freaks me out, since I know that they all will respond differently. I just want to start somewhere and am willing to be slow if I must. PLEEEEZE HELP!

Jan Cox: Looks really good.so much better than bleached at the roots.love it.

Taylor DeHollander: What color did you use ?

Marinella Turco: I'm really bad at hair-things and I was really scared to try it, but after a hair stylist ruined my hair I had to and it worked! Even without any skills works this technique perfectly. Thanks a lot! I can really recommend this!

Nicky Bee: You’re seriously like the prettiest girl in the world! I love your videos, they’re extremely helpful- even for someone like me who went to beauty school (like 10 years ago!) it helps to refresh my memory and there are so many new trends now to keep up to date with :)! Thanks Elle! ❤️❤️❤️

Lucy: Do I use the middle hair parting even though I usually part on side to get the look?

Ile Ramirez: What color are you using?

Rachel Smith: So glad I found this video! I've been hit or miss on doing my own hair since I was about 12, but this was so quick and foolproof! I'm growing out my platinum blonde and this made the process so much less painful - and much prettier! :)

Anonamoose: I can't express how grateful I am for you sharing this technique! It works a dream! I have zero hairdressing experience or skill but I thought I'd risk it and try this anyway...OMG it looks incredible, like a soft, expert balayage. I was bricking it whilst I was waiting for the dye to take because it looked uneven but it turned out like a professional job. Literally took 20mins! I will always do this from now on with my hair, thank you!

Ryankatie Brown: Will this color greys?

Laura Urban: Thank you soooooo much. I did this technique on my hair today and it looks gorgeous! I'm nearly 60 but now look 40 at best. Very professional look at home. You are amazing!

Rachel Tull: I’ve saved this video because I’ve followed it four times now. This the first time I’ve truly loved my color and there’s so much less damage than o normally get. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your knowledge and teaching such a great technique!

Noelia Jaime: I was thinking about doing the same thing,except backcombing to add the level 8.Which is better?

Mila Doroshenko: Wanted to order Monat shampoo, found ALOT bad reviews and then came across this viddo, ppl are loosing their hair ;( https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Fz8wNeMNZ8E
