What is Platinum Blonde

Platinum blonde hair is having a moment right now and shows no signs of slowing down. This ashy, cool toned shade is the perfect way to make a statement and turn heads. Platinum blonde is a high maintenance color that requires regular touch-ups to maintain its icy hue. But trust us, it’s worth the extra effort! Because platinum blonde is such a striking shade, it’s important to consult with a professional colorist to ensure that it’s done correctly.

How to Get Platinum Blonde Hair

If your starting point is dark hair, like most of our clients here at Salon Gamme, we’ll first need to lighten your locks before applying a platinum blonde hue. This process can be damaging to your hair, so we strongly and always recommend Olaplex, which helps to rebuild and strengthen the bonds in your hair that are broken during the coloring or lightening process.

-Be sure to use a clarifying shampoo and deep conditioner in the weeks leading up to your appointment.  However, don’t wash them the day of your appointment.

-Get a consultation. Before booking an appointment, be sure to fill out our color consultation form, so we can better assess your needs. This will give you an opportunity to discuss your goals for your new shade, and make sure that you’re on the same page about what result you’re hoping to achieve.

-Be patient. The bleaching process can be long and tedious, so it’s important to be patient throughout the entire process. Your colorist will take their time to ensure that your hair is being treated gently and correctly, so sit back and relax!

Maintaining Platinum Blonde Hair

Now that you’ve achieved the perfect platinum blonde shade at Salon Gamme, it’s important to take extra care of your hair to prevent damage and keep your color looking its best. Here are our top tips for taking care of platinum blonde hair:

-Use purple shampoo and conditioner once or twice a week. We love Olaplex, Fanola and KEVIN.MURPHY Shampoos and Conditioners.

-Invest in a good heat protectant prior to styling with heat tools such as straighteners or curling irons. Try HEATED.DEFENSE from KEVIN.MURPHY.

-Limit washes to every other day or every three days and always use lukewarm water—hot water can strip away moisture and lead to dry, damaged strands.

-End each wash with a blast of cold water—this helps seal the cuticle and prevents frizziness.

-When drying your hair, avoid rubbing it with a towel—this can cause breakage. Instead, gently squeeze excess water from your strands and then air dry or use a diffuser on a low setting if you’re in a hurry.

going Blonde Hair: Pros

1. Blondes tend to stand out in a crowd. If you’re looking for a way to turn heads and get noticed, then going blonde is a great option. Whether you choose a platinum blonde hue or something a little softer and more natural-looking, you’re sure to get attention when you switch to this lighter hair color.

2. Blondes can pull off almost any hair style. From beachy waves to sleek and straight, blondes can rock just about any hair style out there. And since there are so many different shades of blonde to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits your style perfectly.

3.  Blondes always look put together. Whether you’re running errands or heading to a big meeting, having blonde hair can help you look pulled together and polished. If you’ve been wanting to try a new hair color but didn’t want to go too crazy, then going blonde may be the perfect option for you.

going Blonde Hair: Cons

1. Going platinum blonde is a major commitment—both in terms of time and money. Be prepared to spend hours in the salon chair (and a pretty penny on your hairdresser’s bill) if you’re planning on making this change.

2. Platinum blonde hair requires extra TLC. This means regular trips to the salon for deep-conditioning treatments as well as at-home care with special shampoos and conditioners designed for color-treated hair. Without proper care, platinum blonde hair can quickly become dry, brittle, and damaged.

3. Platinum blonde hair isn’t for everyone. If you have fine or thin hair, going platinum may not be the best decision, as bleaching can further damage already fragile strands. It’s always best to consult with our professionals at Salon Gamme before making any big changes to your hair color.

Overall, there are both pros and cons to dying your hair platinum blonde. It’s important to weigh all of these factors before making a decision—after all, this is a big change! But if you’re up for the challenge and ready to take the plunge, then we say go for it! Just be prepared for some extra time in the salon with our amazing team. 😉
