Boom, boom, boom! Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon (her new hair, that is)! Katy Perry has been blessing us with her unique fashion and beauty statements for years but she still managed to shock everyone when she debuted her new blonde locks!
Perry debuted her new bright locks at her friend Sham Ibrahim’s art exhibit at Palm Springs. We’re not actually sure if we’re into this new look but it definitely surprised us.
Been wanting to go blonde too? It’s not as easy as it looks; you have to consider the damages that it can cause your locks. According to Sharron Farrell of Women’s Health, there are a few things that you should keep in mind before you go blonde:
Not the Time to DIY
Leave the dramatic color change to the pros! Plus, store bought hair bleach and dyes aren’t strong enough to give you the result that you’re aiming for, unless you want to have brittle, blotchy and dry hair. Just to be safe, save your pennies and book an appointment!
Do it Gradually
Give your hair time to rest, if you have time, do it in few appointments. This will give your time to recover from the treatments. If you need to go through with the transition in one appointment, expect to be in the salon for a looong time (7-8 hours).
Before you leave, make sure that your hair is hydrated. Most professionals use treatments like olaplex, gloss and hair mask.
During the first week of your transition, you have to pump up your hair care. You have to remember that you literally stripped your hair of its natural pigment. Remember to always use hydrating products like masks and oils to avoid unwanted frizz and breakage.
Always consult your hair stylist on how you should wash your hair, they may recommend you to use products that are more suitable for bleached and color treated hair. Since your hair is more sensitive, be gentler to your locks, don’t use harsh tools and always pat your hair dry and never rub with your towel.
