Hey Boutique Babes, it's your stylist Natalia here + today I'm going to talk about going blonde after being a brunette! Okay, secret...I went blonde from box dye black, red, purple, pink...let's just say I went a little crazy with my hair colors.
When I started my journey from being a blonde, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. But, I trusted my stylist + stayed consistent with my appointments and deep conditioning.
Some people think it takes one, maybe even two or three visits to become blonde, but for me it took a while! It wasn't easy and I had to break through a lot of color in order to achieve my blonde in a healthy way.
Although some people can wait about 8 weeks in between appointments, I had to go about every 5 weeks. If I don't keep up with my regular appointments, my outgrowth gets to be too much! Make sure you talk with your stylist about your blonde goals to determine how often you should be in the salon for appointments.
Being a blonde is achievable when you have dark hair, you just have to trust the process.
Here is my journey going blonde from black:
It started with having to break through a lot of color. I had jet black box dye hair. After my first blonding session my hair turned orange + yellow (gasp). But, that's what toners are used for. Because of great toners, I was able to be okay with my in-between color. I knew at the end my hair would be a perfect blonde + I would be able to achieve it in a healthy way.
I can still remember the day Brooke turned my chair around + I was able to see myself in the mirror and see the blonde I've always wanted with tears running down my face.
If you try and achieve your blonde goals too quick, this can result in hair loss or breakage. It is always important to trust your stylist + the process. They know what they're doing + want to help you achieve your goal. It is so important to keep up with your appointments + conditioning and you will achieve your blonde goals in no time.
I get it, you're excited to finally be blonde! I am a VERY impatient person, but you have to be patient + I promise you it will be so worth it because maybe it's just me, but blondes have more fun. ;)
