It’s no secret that going blonde is no easy feat. In fact, it can actually be quite the hair journey. This is especially true for Asian men and women who are looking to lighten up. With black, coarse hair, you can imagine how it could be extra difficult to go blonde. But that’s not to say it isn’t possible! With the right steps, a little time, and a lot of patience, you’ll be well on your way to beautiful blonde hair. Read on for everything you need to know on how to achieve blonde locks on Asian hair types.
Going from black to blonde is certainly a challenge. That being said, there are a few things to keep in mind before turning to the blonde side.
The most important thing for you to know about becoming a blonde? It’s going to take time! Unfortunately, you won’t be able to trade your black locks for a lighter, blonder shade overnight. Rather, it’ll likely take multiple bleaching and toning sessions to get to your desired shade. You’ll want to wait a minimum of 14 days between each session to keep your hair in good health. The plus side? You’ll get to rock some other gorgeous shades (brunettes have lots of fun, too) in the meantime!
Speaking of hair color shades, that blonde shade you’ve been eyeing up on Pinterest may not be the best shade of blonde for you. Finding your blonde hair color match all depends on your skin tone, undertones, and the amount of effort you’re willing to put into achieving your desired hair color. To find the best blonde for you, check out our article, The 50 Best Blonde Hair Colors for Every Skin Tone.
Sure, you can go blonde at home, but it certainly isn’t easy if you’re starting with thick, black Asian hair. To avoid any mishaps—like an orange hair color or major damage—your best bet is to head to the salon. Your colorist will be able to expertly guide you to the blonde hair of your dreams, giving you those gorgeous in-between shades we mentioned earlier. Just make sure to bring plenty of inspiration pictures, so your colorist knows exactly what you have in mind!
Blonde hair requires a new and improved hair care routine. While you may swear by your current shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask, your blonde locks call for a different regimen. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment make up a system specifically formulated for color-treated blonde hair, helping to neutralize brassiness and hydrate over-processed hair.
Colored blonde hair, especially black hair that has been bleached blonde, can pick up extra brass. That’s where purple shampoo comes in. If you notice your blonde hair becoming particularly brassy, use the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Purple Shampoo for Color Treated Hair and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Purple Conditioner for Color Treated Hair once a week in place of your regular blonde shampoo.
As you can probably tell by now, blonde hair is anything but low-maintenance. Aside from changing your hair care routine, you’ll also want to schedule regular touch-ups with your salon to color grown out roots and tone your blonde strands. In a pinch, you can use the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up in Light to Medium Blonde or Dark Blonde to temporarily disguise your roots between salon visits.
Suddenly not sure you’re ready to commit to blonde hair? The upkeep isn’t so bad if you stay on the dark side! Here are 21 Dark Blonde Hair Color Ideas So You Can Be a Low-Maintenance Blonde.
