What You Need To Know About Going Platinum Blonde

Do you dream about having platinum blonde hair like Kim Kardashian or Gwen Stefani? Stop dreaming and make it a reality. I’m going to let you in on all the secrets to getting and maintaining that gorgeous blonde hair. We’ll leave the hard part to the professionals.

First things first, going platinum blonde is a big project and you need to understand there are rules and regulations to get blonde and maintain that beautiful color. Six months before going blonde, yes I said six months, you’ll need to stop coloring your hair completely. The reason for this is to grow out your natural color to ensure an even all over blonde. One to two weeks before going blonde, get a deep conditioning treatment. The deep conditioning treatment will help prevent against damage. Not saying this will eliminate any damage but it will help in preventing serious damage. Forty-eight hours before your appointment stop washing your hair. You need the natural oils in your hair to protect your scalp from over drying or irritation during the bleaching process. Along with these physical things you need to do, you will also need to mentally prepare yourself to cut off a few inches of your long luscious locks. I know it is hard to deal with cutting your hair but your hair will be a little damaged and to ensure your hair looks and feels healthy you will need at least a trim after the process is all said and done. The process for some might take up to three visits depending on the condition of the hair and hair color history.

After you achieve the perfect level of platinum blonde you will have some maintenance work at home. If you aren’t already, you will need to start using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Along with the sulfate-free shampoo, once a week you will need to wash with a purple shampoo to ensure the color doesn’t oxidize and turn yellow (yuck!). Every two weeks you should have a protein mask treatment done to your hair to help rebuild your hair from the inside out. The last and final step of your maintenance will be every 4-6 weeks coming into the salon for a root touch-up and possible glaze to keep that gorgeous blonde looking good.

D.I.Y Tricks

We all spend hours on Pinterest looking for at home remedies to give our hair that extra kick. Well now you can stop looking because we found the best at home treatments for your hair. To boost your hair’s radiance once a week take some coconut oil and apply from root to tips and let sit for 30 minutes. When rinsing take some shampoo and lather with a drop of water to break down the oil without stripping your hair of the moisture. Scared to use oil on your hair? No problem, try a vinegar rinse. Take 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar with 8 ounces of water and apply all over hair. Let sit for a few minutes and rinse. It’s as simple as that. Beautiful hair at home is possible.

Next time you’re in the salon ask for the Olaplex treatment. The Olaplex treatment transforms damaged, brittle hair to normal “human being” hair in about 20 minutes. Too good to be true? No! It is the latest and greatest treatment in the hair world. It is your new life saver. Stop in and ask about it!

Velaterapia

What is the latest craze in the hair industry? Velaterapia! Simply known as candle cutting. “Candle cutting?” Yes, candle cutting. The Brazilians figured a way to give you long, silky smooth hair without cutting it! “How is that possible?” While your hair may be dead or split at the ends, it can also be dead or split along the hair shaft as well. What the candle does is burn off all those split and dead ends all along the hair shaft. “Wait wouldn’t my whole head go on fire?” No because it only burns what is dead or split not whats healthy. After Velaterapia we wash your hair and apply a deep conditioning treatment for at least 20 minutes. The heat of the candle opens your hair cuticle which allows the deep conditioner to penetrate the hair up to 3x the normal amount which fills your hair and gives you that soft silky hair you dream about! Give us a call or stop by to see what the craze is about and book your appointment!
