Has anyone here with dark hair used only color developer to lighten hair

I was thinking of using developer 20 and I don't want to use bleach.I wanted to lighten my hair so id be able to have different shades of brown or even dark blue/black and when I use regular box dyes that you mix I can't do that.

So has anyone just used developer on their hair and that's all and then possibly used a semi permanent just to change colors whenever?Was your hair left in the same condition as if using the mix from a box dye or was it more damaged?

    I use Clairol Professionals Mix Tones (silver box) demi-permanete color (clear) with the 20 developer. My hair is very dark brown/black - but this lightner has lifted it to blonde at it's highest peak. I've been doing this for over 13 years with no problem - relaxed and now natural.
