There's no shying away with platinum blonde hair

Having platinum blonde hair is one of the most daring and attention-grabbing looks you can get. With its unapologetically artificial icy whiteness, it is a statement look that screams confidence and playfulness.  Achieving this startling tone can be quite a struggle, especially if your hair is already colored or naturally dark. However, once you have found the right platinum hair color for you, you should start focusing on how to maintain it by using the right bleached hair care.

Tips for going platinum blonde

Thinking about coloring your hair platinum blonde? If so, then first it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the process required to transition from your existing color. The steps below outline the key things to remember:

For natural blondes: If you want platinum blonde hair, then having naturally ashy or dark blonde hair to start is ideal. This way the bleaching process is not so intensive, and you might even be able to use just a toner.

For those with short or shoulder-length hair: Usually, regularly trimmed short hair is healthier than long, making it better equipped to deal with the aggressive process of dyeing hair platinum blonde. What’s more, coloring results are also more uniform for shorter hair.

For damaged hair: Coloring brittle or otherwise damaged hair is far from optimal, and bleaching hair is particularly hard on already blemished hair.

Aftercare: It is crucial to not expose yourself to damaging influences after coloring hair platinum blonde. That means you should gently pat your hair dry instead of roughly scrubbing it, as well as using a wide-toothed comb to detangle it. All kinds of heat styling should also be avoided.

Consult with a Schwarzkopf professional hair stylist if you are not sure whether your hair is suitable for coloring it platinum blonde.
