Lightening your hair will make a big difference to your appearance. Many people choose to have an all-over lighter colour, or they may opt for highlights or a technique such as balyage to lighten certain sections of hair. If you are considering lightening your hair permanently, there are some things you should consider. These are some of the main ones:
- Look after the condition of your hair. Lightening hair involves using bleach, so it can be very damaging. If you’re not careful, you can get split ends and breakage, which will ruin your beautiful new colour. Think about how you will care for your colour, with quality shampoo and conditioner, less heat treatment, and hair masks.
- Do it gradually. Don’t think you can go from brunette to blonde in one appointment. Make it a gradual process.
- Listen to your hairdresser. They can tell you how light you can make your hair without damaging it, and how quickly you can do it.
