Changing up your hair color is a great way to freshen up your look. You may see yourself in a new light. If you are a brunette, however, there are some lines you may be hesitant of crossing, specifically going blonde. Here are some things to consider before going blonde, including shade, upkeep, and toning conditioner among other things.
Things To Consider Before Going Blonde
There Are Different Shades Of Blonde
There are so many shades of blonde to choose from. Going blonde also doesn’t mean turning all your hair a shade of yellow or white. For instance, balayage is a great way for dark-haired women to slowly transition blonde. Alternatively, you could consider babylights or a soft ombre look.
When choosing a shade of blonde, consider shades that will complement your skin tone. Consider your hair’s natural shade, too, as that will affect the overall outcome. The amount of time you can spend in the salon for retouches should be considered when choosing a shade as well.
You’ll Need Multiple Appointments
Transforming into a blonde does not happen overnight—unless you want to fry up your tresses. In fact, it takes place over weeks or even months. You will need to go back to the salon more than twice to achieve your desired blonde shade. So, you should be ready for the commitment time-wise and money-wise.
There’s A Lot Of Upkeep
Once you have transformed into a blonde bombshell, you need to take extra care of your hair. First off, you need to be prepared for appointments to touch up your roots. Second, you will need to change up your hair care routine. For instance, you need to use a color-safe shampoo and toning conditioner for blonde hair. Jaci’s Toning Shampoo and Conditioner contains violet pigments to prevent color fading and neutralize brassy tones.
There Will Be Damage
Lightening your hair will inevitably damage your hair, regardless of the process, your colorist chooses. Naturally, certain processes result in minimal damage. So, it is best to come in to your appointment with the healthiest hair possible. Not only will this make the result better, but your hair will also incur minimal damage. If you have damaged hair, consider using Jaci’s Reparative Shampoo and Conditioner to help your hair recover. If, on the other hand, you have dry hair, the Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner will do you good.
