Can lasers lighten hair without removing it?

Laser Hair Removal . 2 answers . 2 years ago

I have been bleaching one spot on my scalp for years because I love the way a single platinum streak looks in my hair. I am wondering if it is possible to remove the color of hair without destroying it. Can this be done? Can lasers lighten hair without removing it?
