Dying Your Hair Blonde? What You NEED to Know!

Blonde Is More Fun Right?

Many of us know that coloring hair can be a lengthy process. I’ve shared the story before, but when I colored my hair for the first time, I was so excited! I decided that I wanted to do a Burgundy red color that would make my look stand out! I thought that was daring but the blonde hair is an entirely different beast.

At the time, I didn’t realize that coloring hair difficult. If you’re changing your hair to a color that is lighter than your natural color, you’re going to need to dye your hair blonde first. I’ve never actually gone blonde before because I’ve been told it can be severely damaging to those with a sensitive scalp.

However, I did ask my hairstylist what I would need to do if I wanted to go blonde. The list was long, but I was happy to get so much information. If you’re thinking about going blonde, there are some things you’ll need to know about how it can affect your hair.

Going from dark-colored hair to blonde won’t be an easy task, but it is fun if you have the right person or people to help you! Let’s get into the top five things to know before coloring your hair blonde!

New Blonde! New You!

Changing your hair to different hair color is an exciting time, but there are some things that you’ll need to pay attention too! Blonde is an entirely different terrain of confusion when it comes to hair color because it requires so much work.

So, what do you need to know? You’ll need to understand that your natural hair color matters, purple shampoo is your BEST friend, there is always more than one blonde to choose from, the texture of your hair might change, and you’ll need to have an entrusted hairstylist.

The last part is crucial, and we’ll discuss it a bit later. For now, you’ll need to wrap your head around these five topics. Don’t be afraid of changing your hair to blonde!

If you have the right tools, you’ll look amazing after it’s all said and done. One essential thing to remember is that once you go blonde, you’ll need to give your hair rest before changing to different hair colors.

Going blonde is going to take more than one treatment which means that your hair will be undergoing a lot of stress! Make sure that you’re mindful of that!

What’s Your Natural Hair Color?

Do you have naturally dark hair? If the answer is yes, you’ll be needing to visit your hairstylist more than once. Also, if your hair color is usually dark, your hairstylist will probably suggest a transition plan for you.

A transitional color doesn’t mean that you couldn’t get the blonde you’re dreaming of, but it does mean that you’ll need to wait before taking the full leap. A transitional color is intended to help your hair remain healthy.

Also, a hairstylist may suggest this because they’ve considered how easily your hair color will lift as well. While going from darker strands to blonde is possible to do in one session, it's probably not the best route for the overall health of your hair.

Don’t be discouraged though. Your hair will be blonde in no time!

More Than One Blonde Option?

This is pretty, but there are plenty of blonde options out there for you to choose from. The important thing is that you know which color blonde you’d like to get. Looking for something close to a silver, platinum blonde? Ask your hairstylist.

Don’t try to dye your hair blond for the first time by yourself if you’re particular about the outcome. A hairstylist will have all kinds of blond options to choose from, and the best part is that their salon-grade so they’re high quality.

Your hairstylist will give you all the necessary information when you go into your appointment.

Purple Shampoo!

Purple shampoo is going to be the product that saves your blonde hair from losing its vibrancy. Having an excellent purple shampoo will save you the time and money of visiting a hairstylist every time you need a touch-up. The concept of purple shampoo might sound ridiculous, but it’s beneficial to your blonde hair.

The purple in the shampoo helps keep the undertones at bay. It can serve as your at-home toner while you’re away from your hairstylist. When you’re with your hairstylist, they should always provide you with a toner to keep your blonde in check.

However, if you can’t seem to get to them, you’ll need this purple shampoo miracle. You can check out some of the best purple shampoos online or in stores!

Look Out For Your Hair Texture!

With any profound change, you’ll notice a difference in your hair texture. Your hair texture will change depending on your original hair texture and depending on the intensity of your blonde treatment.

If you’re like me and have 4b to 4c hair, you can expect the texture to change slightly. When I first dyed my hair, I noticed that my curls were a little bit looser.

This was because of the chemicals that were in the dye that was used on my hair. If your hair texture changes drastically, then don’t worry too much. Consult with your hairstylist, and they should be able to help you out if need be.

Also, your texture should come back after a certain period.

Your Hairstylist Matters!

The hairstylist you choose is going to be the most significant factor when it comes to the success of your blonde transition. Your hairstylist will guide you as you select the perfect color blonde.

They’ll be able to let you know how many treatments you’ll need as well as how difficult it will be to lighten your hair to blonde. If you’ve never dyed your hair blonde, I don’t suggest doing it alone.

Your hairstylist is an essential part of it all! You want to make sure that you have someone you can work closely with.
