My New Hair Color

Hey Everyone!

 Happy Tuesday! As most of you all know from Instagram, Ive lightened my hair and have been progressively getting it a bit lighter each time I get it done. A lot of people have been asking me details about my hair like what I ask for, who do I go to, and the upkeep so I decided to tell you guys here :). When I first went in to get my hair done, I had a picture of the hair color I had in mind and we have made it to custom to my hair and my skin tone. So find a picture of the color you think you want to get the ball rolling.

First of all, I get it done by Julie at Pika Pika Hair Salon in Duluth Georgia (IG: touchedbyjuels) . In order to book an appointment with her you will have to email a picture of your current hair and what you are trying to do and she will go from there. That brings me to my first point, if your stylist doesn't want to know the condition of your hair before you go in, that should be a red flag. Your stylist should care more about the health of your hair then making money from your appointment. When Julie saw the picture of my hair and I told her that I had dyed it black about a year ago, she told me to start washing my hair as much as possible with purple shampoo for at least 3 weeks to help pull the black and make it less damaging on my hair to go light. I loved that she told me to wait, it showed me that she wanted to get the best results possible while still keeping my hair healthy.

Second, if your hair is black and you are wanting to go super light. Be prepared for it to take a few treatments. If you go from one end of the spectrum to another with your hair color in one sitting, 9 times out of 10, you are going to end up with damaged hair. Be patient, healthy hair is better than having to cut your hair off because it's damaged.

Third, you have to take care of your hair in between appointments. Blonde hair has to be trimmed regularly because it tends to split easier. You also need to be prepared to have the best conditioning shampoo and conditioners that are sulfate free to keep your hair hydrated and conditioned. I also keep pink/purple shampoo on hand to tone down any brassiness before my next appointment. Contrary to popular belief, don't use the pink/purple shampoo unless you need it, too much of it can cause your hair to get dried out and cause it to break.

I hope this helps you guys and if you have any other questions, please let me know.
