No It can't be done without prelightening first if the hair has color on it already. If the hair is virgin hair you will have to lighten it a shade. I would reccomend a professional in salon consultation to go over your options. Many salons offer complimentary consultations.

well there something you can do but it takes a while and patience you can take a bottle of hydrogen peroxide 3% and spray the hair and walk in the sun it will slowly lighten the hair to dark brown then too brown and then you can get a 20 creme developer after you have reach the desire brown too give it blonde high lights... you just put it in a spray bottle and leave it in and that it... and walk in the sun it will take a while also get head and shoulders shampoo and wash it often it will lighten the black hair ..... i had soft black hair dyed and now i have brown hair with nice blonde highlights like brooke shield,.. good luck

The hydrogen peroxide 3% will be less harmful then bleaching the hair ok but yes you need too lighten the hair first too achieve that sunkissed look you looking for.... honey also is a good lightener as well but it takes a long time too achieved the look.....
