Hair Transformation: Redhead to Platinum Blond

A hair transformation is always a challenge, and undertaking a darker-to-lighter shift isn’t for a faint of heart.

After a few years as a redhead I recently made the decision to give a silvery platinum blond a try. Just, you know, to find out if blondes really do have more fun.

Three appointments and a lot of at-home hair treatments later I’m thrilled with the results. What I’ve learned from this experience is twofold.

First and foremost, anyone who wants to “go blond” should have to sign a release waiver. It’s a serious process and the upkeep is BANANAS, it would be pretty devastating if you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. {Check out my Salon Etiquette post for other salon-related suggestions}

Second, keeping your hair healthy is your number one goal. I became the master of hair products over the past few months and have been using dry shampoo, oils, and masks like nobody’s business.

Read on to see some of the products that I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with this Spring to keep my hair healthy and manageable:

On a daily basis L’Oreal’s EverSleek Precious Oil Treatment goes on the ends of my hair while Alterna’s Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo in Bamboo Leaf Scent goes on my roots.

Whenever I need a little boost I turn to the Hair Chemist Coconut Oil Deep Repair Masque or the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque.

And while I’ve been trying to wash my hair as little as possible, when I do I’ve been using Pureology’s Precious Oil Shamp’oil and Precious Oil Softening Conditioner.

  1. Great post. I would say try using just your regular everyday conditioner and organic cold pressed coconut oil as a mask. I also sometimes add avocado for more moisture! It’s a great DIY.
