Dying Hair to Relax?

Hey guys. It's been a while.

Anyway, I was talking to one of my girlfriends at school the other day. We ended up talking about hair and she said her hair used to be wavy but since she had dyed it so much it turned pin straight. She said that if I used a strawberry-blondish colored dye, it might loosen my curls a bit.

Anyone think this could work? I have 3b curls and I want them more relaxed and more manageable.
Curls: 3a/3b

    Lightening the hair damages it. And while that does tend to loosen the curl for a lot of people, it also tends to increase frizz and porosity, hurt elasticity, and it just plain makes your hair harder to take care of.

    Medium-coarse, super high density, normal porosity, low elasticity.
    I'm currently trying out various Curl Junkie and Devacurl products.
