Going from Dark to Blonde – Expectations Vs Reality
Instagram, Facebook & Tiktok are full of hair transformations that would have you believe that it takes only a two-hour hair appointment to go from a jet-black base to platinum white blonde.
In reality it can take up to six hair colour appointments to achieve your desired shade! This depends on your hair’s condition and hair type, length & build-up of artificial colour on your hair. If you have 10 years of a permanent jet-black dye on your hair, it is going to be harder to lift than somebody who has naturally dark hair wanting to go blonde.
The darker the hair, the more warmth is naturally present and the harder it is to neutralise. This means that during the hair colour transition process you will have a lot of warmer tones throughout your hair, but this is just part of the process. The use of Silver Shampoos and Toning Conditioners in your homecare will help to reduce the warmth.
WellaPlex is a Must!
The use of WellaPlex when lightening your hair will help to achieve the required lift without compromising your hair’s condition. WellaPlex is designed to protect your hair from damage and actually strengthen it during the technical service. It’s a process designed to protect the bonds deep within the hair, resulting in hair that is stronger, feels touchably softer and looks shinier.
For homecare maintenance; we advise that this product is used once a week alongside your daily haircare routine. The revitalising formula follows the in-salon treatment to maintain the strength and condition of your hair in-between appointments.
At Francesco Hair Salon, we take pride in the comprehensive training our teams receive to assist you in achieving the perfect look that aligns with both your budget and lifestyle. Depending on factors such as your hair length, condition, and color history, the investment for achieving your dream look may span multiple appointments, with costs typically ranging from £300 to £2,000.
Want a more gradual approach?
Why not go down the Khloe Kardashian route? This route is kinder to the hair; however, it will take more appointments to achieve your desired look as it is a softer/healthier approach.
This gorgeous look can take up to twelve appointments to reduce damage and achieve this colour, which could cost around £1,200 in total.
