Blonde hair can be higher maintenance. Going (and staying) blonde requires some TLC in order to stay looking fabulous. If you're considering going blonde for the first time, or simply want to change up your already blonde strands, here are some must needed things that you should know before lightening or bleaching your hair!
1. YOUR HAIR COLOR MATTERS
If your hair color is naturally very dark, your hair stylist may suggest a transition plan for your hair color journey. When a stylist does this, they are considering your hair’s overall health as well as its ability to lift or lighten! While going from darker strands to bright blonde is possible to do in one session, it might not be the best decision for the overall health of your hair.
Maintaining your blonde strands will require some quality time with your hair stylist. If you’re looking for a smaller commitment on the blonde spectrum, ask your stylist about balayage. This technique uses darker colors on your roots and scalp, while keeping the ends bright and blonde. It’s perfect for those who don’t want the hassle of root maintenance, while also keeping their strands beautifully blonde.
3. PURPLE SHAMPOO
You will need to upgrade your haircare routine; Blondes know that just any shampoo won't do. The right purple shampoo to prevent brassy unwanted orange and yellow tones will keep your blonde beautifully refreshed; this is a must for keeping your blonde locks looking shiny and vibrant!!
4. AVOID THE URGE TO DIY!!!
While DIYs are great for crafty home décor, they aren’t so great for brightening your locks. While it may seem like a good idea at the time, no one wants to end up with brassy strands or mismatched highlights. Leave hair-coloring to the professionals and trust them to take your strands to newer, blonder heights without the unexpected mishaps.
5. BLONDE: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?
When it comes to going blonde, bringing a photo in for reference is always your best bet. While “blonde” may mean the icy white strands of a platinum blonde to you, for your stylist it may mean golden blonde tones and a deeper base. Keep everyone on the same page during your next color appointment by bringing in photos for your stylist. Be sure to bring enough visuals to show them exactly what you do and do not want in terms of your haircolor.
6. YOUR SKIN TONE SHOULD AFFECT YOUR COLOR CHOICE
If you’re unsure about which shade of blonde to choose, try taking your skin tone into account. Typically, those with paler or cooler skin tones look stunning with ashy, pearlescent shades, while those with warmer skin tones simply slay with more golden hues.
7. YOUR HAIR TEXTURE MIGHT CHANGE
Over time, bleaching can cause your natural hair texture to change. Those with curls may notice that their ends are straighter as their strands have become drier. On the opposite end, those with naturally straight hair may notice more volume as their hair’s cuticle has been roughened up.
8. BE HONEST WITH YOUR STYLIST
While it may be hard to admit, your stylist needs to know if you have used at home hair color before your Salon appointment. Knowing just how much your hair has been previously colored can help your stylist adjust your hair color formula to get the best result for you.
