It is possible to go from black to blonde, but it is a radical change. It’s essential that you think about your decision first and are sure that this is what you want to do. Don’t forget, while they say blonds have more fun, brunettes spend a lot less time looking after their hair.
It’s important to note that you can’t simply dye your dark hair blonde; it won’t work. Not only can you cause serious damage to your hair, but you’re also likely to arrive at a strange color; it won’t be blonde.
Find A Stylist
It is possible to make the transition yourself; however, if you’ve never done this before, it’s a better idea to find a stylist you can trust.
It’s surprisingly easy to do this, simply go to your stylist and tell them you want to be blonde. A good stylist will tell you it’s time for a chat. They should ask you when was the last time you dyed your hair and if you had dyed it before, whether it was done at home or in a salon. They’ll also want to know when your hair was last cut. All of these play a part in how long it will take to turn your hair from black to blonde.
It’s likely that the salon will trim your split ends, and they may give you products to help strengthen your hair before you start.
Don’t forget; it’s quicker to do your whole head than it is to keep your roots dark. You’ll also need to make sure you have the right heat styling tools. You need to be able to style with a cool temperature and use heat protective spray.
The First Dye
The first step is to dye your hair. You’re not going to go blonde instantly. It’s important to bleach every strand of your hair. Start at the roots and work your way down to the tips. This allows the dye to work for a little longer on the roots, which tend to hold their color better.
Split your hair into sections and do one at a time; this will help to make sure the dye has been applied everywhere and evenly.
It will take time, and your hair is likely to end up a dark blonde.
You’ll need to give your hair time to recover from the first process. It’s best to leave it for several days or even a week or two. It depends on how strong your hair is. You can then apply a second coat of dye which will take you to a medium blonde, potentially with traces of lighter blond.
The Third Dye
To finish, you’ll need to repeat the dyeing process one more time. This should bring your hair to the blonde you want. However, in some cases, this can be achieved in two attempts, but it can also take another attempt.
Don’t forget; your dyed hair needs to be looked after properly if you want to keep it looking great.
