Blond or Blonde is a hair colour notable for low levels of the colour pigment eumelanin. The resulting colour can vary, but always has some sort of yellow colour. The colour can range from a very pale blond (caused by a patchy distribution of eumelanin) to reddish "strawberry" blond colours or golden-brownish blond colours.
I guess every one of us has dreamed (and I'm not an exception) of having blonde hair at least once in our lives. For all we know, the blonde locks give one's image a certain special attraction and femininity. Today bleaching is available to clients with any natural hair colour. It's worth noticing that the most harmonious bleaching is possible looks on the natural blonde.
But the brunettes, chestnuts, and the red-haired clients are not as easy to bleach, and in many cases, it is unsafe for their hair,to achieve the desired result at the first time. Lightening the hair colour of this group is a long and complicated procedure. It is not recommended to do it on one's own, but rather to trust an experienced professional. In addition, the whitening of dark hair tends to take place in a few stages, which requires profound knowledge, experience, and time. No one wants to have a redried, dubious, hair colour.
It is important to remember that bleaching with use of chemicals has a negative effect on the hair structure, so the process of lightening must be done correctly, with all the standards, and with the use of exceptionally high-quality chemicals and subsequent procedures for the restoration and remediation of hair.
Classic Ways of Dyeing HairThis procedure involves lightening only a few tones. Bleaching can be performed in two ways. Way # 1 - using bleaching powder and developer. This method is appropriate for all types of natural as well as artificially created colours. I need to say again that two or even three-stage whitening is recommended for brunettes, depending on the desired result. Way # 2 – bleaching directly with the help of permanent dye. However, this method is only suitable for dirty-blond hair. For brunettes, and the black and red-hair-type clients this procedure is not used because it does not give a good result, but only dries the hair. After the whitening is completed and the result of the full highlighting is reached I always recommend using toner. This is the step which gives the hair the desired shade. And the final step is to perform the remediation procedures for the hair structure.
Radical Way of bleaching HairThis procedure involves the complete discolouration of the natural pigment of the hair. The resulting "pure blonde" can be used as a base for further coloring the hair in a desired shade. Radical bleaching is a complex procedure, after which the hair needs long-term professional recovery. Not suitable for all types of hair (not recommended for climbing hair, for relaxed and brittle hairs, also not recommended for hair with a chemical perm).
My suggestions about transforming your hair with Blonde colouring
- It is suitable for all haircuts regardless of the length of the hair.
- Requires a frequent visit to the salon (root touch ups at least every 3-4 weeks).
- If your natural hair are prevalent with warm shades, and you want a steady, colder colour direction, it is recommended that you use tint hair products weekly (platinum blond) to help maintaining color at home.
- It is recommended to use professional lines for hair care at home.
- Professional remediation procedures such as Botox and Olaplex are recommended.
- Bleaching is not recommended if the hair was previously processed with henna.
