If you’re planning to experiment with this sleek yet bold hair colour, we’ve got a few tips to share:
Platinum blonde and complexion:
Putting on platinum blonde is quite the gamble. This colour is bound to complement certain complexions more than the others, and it is important that you take this into consideration before making any hasty decisions.
The trick, however, lies in how you carry it. The truth is that this eccentric colour is not everyone’s cup of tea. While according to convention, you’d presume platinum blonde to go well with paler skin tones, it is not necessarily the case. It can also work wonders for those with dark brows and warm skin tones.
Talk it out with your hairstylist:
Going blonde is a big decision, and you might want to consult a hairdresser first. Communication is key. Therefore, you need to find a colourist you can trust and one who is capable of catering to all your needs.
Let the hairstylist walk you through the entire process, while discussing the pros as well as the cons.
Most importantly, you need to clearly understand and be completely aware of what is it that you are signing up for.
Depending on your natural hair colour, it may require several applications to achieve that perfect blonde and this process could take several hours. So prepare yourself mentally for it and make yourself comfortable since you might have to sit in the salon for more than a few hours.
Once you have bleached your hair platinum blonde, you need to make sure that you take the utmost care of them. No matter the formula you use, bleaching your hair will certainly cause some amount of damage.
So you need to be extra cautious once you have dyed your hair. Switch to colour protection shampoo and conditioner, instead of using the regular ones, since these products protect the hair fibres from external elements and help retain the radiance of the hair colour. Also, apply dry oil regularly to colour treated hair to give it that extra nourishment.
Some hairstylists will even suggest using a good toning shampoo that helps to remove the underlying yellow tones and leaves you with a crisper white hue. Don’t leave it on for more than 2-3 minutes though, unless you’re wishing for a hair disaster.
Bleaching your hair is going to lead to split ends. Ensure that you stay away from using flat irons and hair dryers for a while after you’ve bleached, so that you do not worsen their condition. And to minimize the extent of the damage if you do have to use them eventually, ensure that they’re kept on low heat settings.
Get a trim:
You should probably also get a trim, which will help take care of the dead ends, stepping up your ‘new look’ game.
By trimming, you bid adieu to the ends that have been damaged, giving you a neater, crisper look. This way, you can get rid of the yellow hues at the ends as well.
