Beauty

I’ve always been blonde. I was born with platinum blonde hair and as I grew older my hair colour became darker. I decided to try a blonde ombre a year ago. It was much darker than my natural hair colour at the roots with a warm blonde tone at the ends.  I  loved it at first but started to feel pale and washed out.

As we just entered Spring I decided to go back blonde again. I was worried about the damage the bleach might do to my hair.  My stylist recommended Olaplex to be used with the bleach as well as a Olaplex treatment after the colouring process.  Olaplex enables the hair professional to achieve ultra light platinum blonde shades never performed before without causing damages to the hair strands.  I was amazed at how blonde my hair could go after just one attempt. My hair feel and look healthy and I just LOVE my new blonde hair!

I would like to share with you 3  points to consider before dying your hair blonde

YOUR COMPLEXION DICTATES WHICH BLONDE WILL WORK FOR YOU

The good news, is that no matter what skin tone you have, there is a pretty shade of blonde that will look great on you.

The best way to find out your skin tone is to look at the veins on the inside of the wrist in natural light – a blue tint means you’re in the cool category, and a green tint means you’ve got a warm skin tone.

If you’ve got:

A cool skin tone
From platinum blonde to golden highlights, creamy, buttery shades complement cooler skin tones.

A warm skin tone
Golden strands and rich honey hues complement warmer skin tones, making this the ideal skin tone for balayaged hair.

So if you are up for the challenge, go ahead and start the process.

MAINTENANCE AND COST

Having blonde hair can be lovely and gorgeous, but that beauty comes with a cost. Blonde hair is a serious commitment that needs a lot of love and care. The process of getting to your favorite blonde shade can take a major toll on your hair and your wallet.

Blonde hair needs more attention than other hair colors. Keep in mind that transitioning more than two shades lighter or darker will require a stronger effort to maintain. When your roots begin to grow out, you will need to use the same professional process to do a touch up. If high maintenance is an issue, think again if you really want to go blonde.

SLIGHT STYLE CHANGES MIGHT BE NECESSARY

Now, I’m sure this isn’t a must for all blondes, but you should know that wearing white, yellow, orange or red clothes is a big no-no for some as it makes their hair appear yellowish. There’s also the whole new makeup routine you’ll have to adapt to in order to look perfect with your new hair color which, although quite fun in most cases, can be a major turn off in times when you have to be ready fast.

So if you are up for the challenge, go ahead and start the process.
