Hack 1: Strengthen the bonds
Preparation is the key when you decide to go blonde from brown.
"If you're going platinum blonde, you need to use a product that helps repair and strengthen the bonds in your hair fibers,” - a celebrity hairstylist, colourist and social influencer Kristin Ess who is responsible for Lucy Hale’s blonde hair transformation, has shared with Marie Claire magazine.
Bleach strips the oils, so you need to build up extra moisture in your hair before lightening it. Apply conditioning masks with oils - coconut, Argon and olive oils are few to name.
Your hairdryer and styling tools also absorb the oils, so it’s worth getting a Blow Dry Hair Treatment that would build a protective layer on your hair and lock the moisture in.
Lastly, don’t wash your hair for at least 2 days before bleaching to let the natural oils protect your hair from the damage.
Find a cost-effective Home Bleach Kit and lighten your brown hair to blonde in a few sessions, up to three shades each time. That would allow your hair to recover and restore its moisture balance.
Rachel Brosnahan is a great example of how going from brunette to blonde with minimal damage is possible, besides you’ll have a chance to enjoy different hair colours in-between sessions.
To seamlessly transit from brown to sun-kissed hair, enhance your dark hair with Blonde Highlights, like Natalie Portman just did. That’s a great option if you're bored with your current hair colour but also don’t want anything too drastic, and the main bonus - much less damage will be done.
Instead of going a full-mode blonde, try the rooted blonde look to leave half of your natural hair 100% healthy. Margot Robbie’s naturally growing roots is a perfect example of how the brown to blonde hair transformation doesn’t have to be all radical. Apart from saving your scalp and roots from the damage, you'll also save up on maintenance - just use a blonde toner to keep the colour fresh.
Talking about the toner... When Bella Hadid brought her brown hair to brassy yellow blonde, it was a bit of a shock for everyone. Turned out, that just like Rachel Brosnahan, Bella has dyed her hair in a few sessions and most likely used a hair toner to get her current perfect blonde look. Use a Conditioning Honey Blonde Toner to maintain the color and improve the condition of your hair.
