So I’ve been asked this question a lot, how did you get your hair this blonde? What did you do?  To be honest, it did not happen overnight. 

I spent 2-3 years applying different shades of blondes, highlights, and toners. I must also add that it went through a lot of damage and my hair was brittle at times and I’ve had to cut the ends more often than I would have liked. My hair is currently two toned blonde, meaning it’s slightly yellowish on top and from mid length to the end white or pearl. I am currently struggling to get the top part to be more white for my grays to blend in better. 

So let me tell you how I got here.

First things first – let’s manage those sky-high expectations. Is white blonde hair something that anyone can achieve? The short answer is no. It is a process and you need a lot of patience? Yes. Is it costly? Most certainly yes. 

You may not be able to achieve a true white-blonde if you:

  • Currently have permanent hair color on
  • Currently have a vivid temporary hair color
  • Have chemically processed your hair a lot
  • Have extremely damaged, weak, or brittle hair. 

Virgin, unprocessed hair is the best candidate to go white-blonde but that doesn’t mean your hair must be virgin to go white-blonde.

Many women have colored, permed, chemically straightened, or relaxed their hair at least once in their lifetime and ended up with the lightest shade of bright, white blonde. The real key to ensuring your hair is a good white-blonde candidate is the overall health and condition of your locks. If your hair isn’t currently dyed (or if you’re willing to cut off any grown-out permanent color) and it feels soft and healthy, the chances are good that you’ll be able to achieve that bright white hair color.

How to look after and maintain your blonde is also very important. 

Here are a few tips : 

  1. Protect your blonde from heat.
  2. Keep it hydrated.
  3. Make your color long-lasting by using a purple shampoo (I prefer Milkshake’s silver shine range).
  4. Keep it out of the sun.
  5. Trim your ends every 6-8 weeks. 
  6. Don’t skip deep conditioning and conditioning your hair. Eg. A good hair mask for hydration.
  7. End your hair wash with a cold rinse.
  8. Take caution with oils.
  9. Read the labels and avoid sulfates at all costs. 

If you have any questions, its best to speak to your hairdresser.
