Noticed any big changes with me lately? In case you haven’t noticed, I’m blonde now! I tried going blonde once or twice but was never happy with the color or results and would switch it back to brown a month or two later. So I decided a few months ago I wanted to go more platinum and reached out to a local salon to make my dream possible. It took two sessions over three weeks and each session was about six hours.
Before my first session, I came in and the girls took a few samples of hair to test and see how my hair would respond. Once they saw what worked and didn’t they went to work.
I asked y’all to send me all the questions you had about going blonde, below are the answers!
Everything You Need to Know About Going Blonde
How long does it take to go blonde?
It’s totally dependent on the health and history of your hair. Virgin, healthy hair is always the easiest to lift and you will get to your end goal a lot quicker. Now if you have box color, it’s going to take more sessions. It’s safe to say around 3-6 months.
How much does it cost?
Anywhere from $400 and up! It’s dependent on the number of sessions and the time it takes. Taking your time will leave you with a healthier end result.
Does your salon offer cruelty-free products?
Yes! Animal testing is against the law in Italy, where we source our color and products from.
What should you do for 3 months before?
Stop coloring it! Get a nourishing shampoo/conditioner to strengthen your hair. I recommend Davines Naturaltech Nourishing shampoo and Vegetarian Miracle for conditioner. Use the Nourishing Hair Building Pak as a mask 1x a week…. you’re going to need it later!
Would I need to lighten my brows?
I’d say no… bold brows are in!
Haircare products to use?
How often would I need touch-ups?
Every 4-6 weeks is average.
Do blondes have more fun?
Blondes do have more fun!! ❤️
The biggest thing to ask yourself is if you’re committed. It is a time commitment, if you go over your appointments or space it out too far, your colorist will have more work to do. The keratin is softer near the scalp and you’ll get a more even platinum if you’re touching up every 4-6 weeks.
And there you have it, folks! Make sure you ask your colorist what to expect and how to care for your hair. And ask their opinion! If they think it’s a bad idea, you may need to wait a few months and make sure your hair is healthy enough to go blonde.
