Before anything else, let me break this to you as a loving friend: Bleaching your hair on your own to score blonde locks is risky. You may ruin your tresses in the process, so it's best to let the professionals do it. Bleach is a strong chemical that may leave your strands brittle and damaged. But if you really, really, really want to score lighter-colored tresses on at home, we found products that can help make your blonde ambition come true. Ahead, we round up the blonde hair starter pack:
