Platinum hair is huge right now, but it’s a daring look that requires commitment. Before you attempt to bleach your hair, you might want to ensure you will look good with platinum hair. Here are some guidelines to follow:
Platinum Blonde is Eye Catching
Having such a vibrant hair color, your platinum hair may be polarizing. You may receive looks, stares, unwanted opinions and more. It will take time for your family, friends, and even your coworkers to get used to your fresh look. Does it matter if they like it? No. As long you love, that’s all that matters. On the other hand, there are people that show their love for your new hair color.
People remember a platinum blonde. Having platinum hair makes you feel content and instantly stylish. It attracts a lot of attention, almost as if you had a natural glow that is 24/7. Once you go platinum blonde, it is hard to go back because there will always be that person who says, “I like you better with blonde hair!”
Becoming a platinum blonde member is cool at first, but then comes the maintenance. Deep hydrating conditioners and purple shampoo are your new best friends! Using a purple shampoo will help tone and cancel out the brassiness. Use a purple shampoo every second wash.
As for deep conditioning, find a quality conditioner to treat your hair. The more hydrated and conditioned your platinum blonde is, the better it looks! If you want to keep the platinum blonde for a while, expect to visit a salon every six weeks for a root touch up. Dark roots are not a bad thing; it can give an ombrè effect and add dimension.
If you are considering lightening your hair to platinum blonde, ask your stylist about Olaplex. Olaplex is a three-step treatment that claims to allow you to safely color and bleach hair without the risk of hair damage. Still, during the chemical service, Olaplex assures to repair the hair. All products are free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, and not tested on animals
Olaplex Consists Of Three Treatments:
Olaplex No. 1 “Bond Multiplier” is only for salon use only and used by a stylist/colorist, adding it to lightener or color to protect your hair from breakage while applying chemicals to your hair.
Olaplex No. 2 “Bond Perfector,” is a bond multiplier rather than a conditioning treatment. It is used mainly by the hair stylist right after a chemical service to make hair stronger and avoid hair damage. Olaplex Nº 2 is applied as a finishing product, once you rinse the color out of the hair.
Olaplex No. 3 “Hair Perfector” is a treatment that you can use at home every seven to fourteen days between salon visits. Using this in between salon visits will help strengthen the hair.
If you’re wanting to experiment with other light pastel colors, using platinum hair as a base is a great start. You can use a semi-permanent hair dye to if you are experimenting with light colors such as lavender, pink, and powder blue.
Does Platinum Blonde Work for You?
Before going platinum blonde, make sure to research all the tones of blonde and pick which one is right for you. Women with cool skin tones look different in platinum colors than women with warm skin tones. Not sure if the platinum blond is the look for you? Try a wig or use blonde extensions to switch up your look without the commitment quickly.
Cool skin tones tend to be ruddy, not golden. If you have a pink or peachy complexion with pink or blue skin undertones, you’ve got cool skin tone. Women with warm skin tones have a yellow, red, and neutral undertone. Bring in a picture to your stylist of the exact platinum color you love. Platinum hair color may mean something different to your stylist then it does in your eyes, so bring in a picture of inspiration to show him or her.
