H O W T O: Platinum Blonde Hair at Home

Hey guys!

So the number one thing i get asked about or complimented on is my hair. Everyone is always asking how do you get it that colour? how do you keep it that colour? how do you stop brassiness? and my most viewed blog post is the one about maintaining ash blonde  hair! So i thought it was FINALLY time to show everyone a quick over view of what i do to get my hair this colour (If you would like a more detailed step by step guide, let me know in the comments below!). I will be doing a root touch up here as i have no need to re-colour the rest of my hair.

 

***DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional hairdresser and i do not recommend that you do this yourself as you may not get the same results shown here, this is just what i do personally and what works well for me, You should always seek advice from a professional for hair colouring.

 

OK SO, first off these are the products i use for this whole process:

  1. Creme developer 30 VOL
  2. Any WHITE OR CLEAR conditioner
  3. Fudge violet toning shampoo
  4. Blue Hi Lift powder bleachIMG_1807

 

Firstly i will show you a greasy before photo of my hair – its best for me to bleach on dirty hair so the natural oils build up and help to protect my hair through the bleaching process.IMG_1810

To make the hair bleach i mix the powder and developer in a 1:2 ratio, so i normally use 3 spoons of hi lift powder and 6 spoons of 30 vol creme developer. Mix this up and get to work right away as it doesn’t lift as well if left too long. It should have a creamy consistency.IMG_1817IMG_1819IMG_1821

Next i apply the mix straight to the hair i want to lighten, being careful not to overlap the already bleached hair to prevent unnecessary damage to my hair, once I’ve applied this to my whole head (on the uncoloured hair) i leave it in  for 30 minutes-45 minutes and wrap my head in foil to let the bleach do its thang and keep the heat in. I never leave it on longer then 1 hour. IMG_1823

After 30-45 minutes my hair looks like this:IMG_1828

The next step is to rinse all the bleach out, then i shampoo with any shampoo i have and DO NOT condition the hair, i then towel dry it to start the toning process. Here is what it looks like fresh after bleaching with no toner:IMG_1836

Then, i get my conditioner and pour out enough to generously coat all of my hair into my container and then about a 20c piece size amount of purple shampoo and mix it all together to make a lilac coloured toner! I then apply this to the roots the same way i did with the bleach mix and then use whatever is left over to put through my ends for a freshen up and condition! I leave this is for about half an hour.IMG_1831IMG_1842

And thats literally all i do! See below for the end result! I re-do this process every 6 weeks or so and have found this is what works best for me, normal toners are too harsh on my hair as it is so light and i dislike the grey/purple tinge they leave in my hair.IMG_184720170909437374272IMG_20170809_124348_893IMG_20170827_185920_257IMG_20170520_112019_980screenshot_20170427-205406.png

I hope that gave you an insight into how i get my hair this colour, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments, thank you so much for reading!! until next time ❤

HOW TO: Maintain Ash blonde hair

Hello beauties!

I recently dyed my hair from bright fire truck red to white ash blonde (see photos on my Instagram @Glamoureyesx) and I have been trying different products to cancel out the yellow/orange tones in my hair – every blondes worst nightmare! I found 5 products which I currently use that seem to maintain my ashen locks without having to bleach or damage my hair.. I thought it would be a great idea to share these products with you as I know a lot of people can be confused about all the products out there or they can’t find something to work for themselves.. This is what works for me and hopefully may work for you too, let’s have a look!

  

First off is the Fudge clean blonde violet toning shampoo $19.99AU Priceline

Anyone and everyone with blonde hair knows this shampoo. It’s definitely a holy grail product for every blonde. This bad boy pretty much does the same thing as a purple toner. I use this about 2 times a week with my normal shampoo. You don’t need much about a 10c piece size will do, I suggest not using this on your hair straight after you have bleached it as it can sometimes turn your hair a lilac shade (but don’t worry it fades after your next wash or two!) I usually leave it on my hair for about 3 minutes before I rinse it out to help neutralise any yellow in my hair and it works a treat! It is a very dark purple almost black coloured shampoo but once it foams the colour lightens so don’t be scared of it.

  
Next is the John Freida sheer blonde colour renew tone correcting shampoo $17.99AU Priceline

That is a mouthful! This shampoo is great for everyday use. It is a light purple colour so this will not stain your hair whatsoever. It smells really nice and makes your hair feel nice and healthy. I recommend this for anyone with light blonde, ash blonde or white hair. There is a conditioner for this shampoo as well but I find the conditioners for blonde hair unnecessary. I prefer to use a Redken or Joico conditioner instead to help repair my hair.

  

Another favourite of mine is the Edward Beale leave in conditioner for blonde hair 7.99AU Priceline

This is just simply a purple leave in conditioning spray. You put it in after you get out of the shower and leave it in your hair. It helps to condition your hair just that extra little bit and it also tones your hair too.

  

Next is Tigi bed head dumb blonde toning protection spray 16.99AU EBay

This is a heat protection spray, you just use it before you blow dry or straighten your hair and once again it. Is purple so it helps to get rid of yellow tones. Pretty simple!

  
Lastly we have the Wella colorcharm toner in T18 Lightest Ash Blonde $10.99AU EBay

This toner is amazing!! I only use this every 4-6 weeks when I touch up my roots and it makes my hair the perfect shade of blonde. It gets rid of all the yellow in my hair and it lasts for a long time. You mix this with a 30vol developer, apply it to your hair and leave it in for up to 30 minutes. I’ve tried many purple toners and this one is definitely the best. Although you use a developer with this toner I don’t feel my hair is badly damaged afterwards which is great. I highly recommend this one. They have a number of different colours to pick from too!

  

Well that’s all the products I use to maintain my ash blonde hair. As you can see all of the products I use have a purple tint to them so I feel that the consistent use of purple products really helps keep my hair in top nick. All of these products are really affordable and easy to access for most people. 

I hope this helped you out in making your decisions on what products to buy, don’t forget to click the little star if you liked this post thank you so much for reading! 

Talk to you all again soon!
