Ice blonde, platinum blonde…whatever you want to call it. It’s definitely become an iconic hairstyle with fairytale queens. But it doesn’t have to be limited just to fairytale queens, in fact, this ultra-blonde hair color has become pretty popular among girls and women everywhere. Maybe it’s because deep down a lot of us want to feel like our own fairytale queen, or maybe it’s just because it’s a fun color to have in your hair. Regardless, it’s not necessarily the easiest hair color to achieve. So we’re going through a few of the steps to getting this ice blonde hair color, in a healthy way.
Treat Your Hair Beforehand
Many hair experts suggest using at home hair treatments before initially coloring your hair the ice blonde color. Doing so will help give you hair some extra protective coating and add additional oils to the hair to help with protection as well. Since putting your hair through a major hair color change can put a lot of stress on your hair, treating it as much beforehand will help with keeping your hair healthy.
Go to a Professional
Since you’re looking to go for the ice blonde look, bleaching is involved. It’s really important that you go to a professional, who can make sure the products that are being used and the treatment being done isn’t going to do any major damage to your hair. Since bleaching isn’t a super easy process for your hair, going to a professional will help make sure your hair’s health is at the forefront of importance. Additionally, you’re going to want to talk to your professional about how many treatments it may take to get you to your end result goal. While it is said that those that are naturally blonde can achieve the ice blonde much easier, it’s not to say that those with brown or red hair can’t. Often times it just may take a couple of extra treatments. Keep in mind it may be a process to get you to the actual ice blonde look. Many hair colorists may not want to do it all in one, to keep your hair’s health on point.
Use Post Treatment Products
Luckily, there are now a lot of really great treatment type of products that are designed to help maintain bleached hair both with its color and health. It’s important to invest in these because bleaching tends to strip your hair of all its natural oils and other features, so you want to try to build those back up when possible. Asking your hair professional what suggested products they recommend is going to help make sure you get the right products for your hair color and type.
While achieving the ice blonde hair isn’t the simplest process, it’s definitely achievable. As long as you have the right pre and post care plan in place you’re sure to be able to maintain it and keep your hair healthy throughout the coloring process.
