Platinum hair looks great and is loved by celebs like Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian, but how damaging is it to naturally dark hair?
Ariana Grande, 22, is rocking platinum blonde hair in her new single art for “Focus.” We love the look but how realistic is it to get there when you have naturally dark hair? An expert speaks below on how you can get the look without damaging your locks.
Butterfly Studio Salon Expert Colorist Tamara DeFelice tells HollywoodLife.com:
“Going platinum is one of the most stunning and fun looks to wear but it surely comes with its baggage. No matter how great the colorist, products, or hair health involved, know that your texture will surely change. You’ll notice the process leaves hair more dry and rough than you’ve known before and with that comes a lot of maintenance. If cared for properly with deep conditioning treatments, nourishing leave-ins, strengthening and heat protective products, etc, your hair can remain manageable. Invest in the best of the best to get added benefits such as shiny and touchable hair and color that looks fresh longer. Do apply extra care and attention while styling, specifically with heat tools.”
Dying Hair Platinum — Get The Look Like Ariana Grande
“For clients I recommend that white, icy looks inspired by Ariana Grande or Kim Kardashian‘s platinum be a fun change for a short period of time. The safest way to preserve the integrity of the hair for most is to slowly transition to your goal and take it step by step. As you gradually get lighter, allow time for your hair to get a break and also to get yourself into the routine and habit of properly taking care of it. Be advised and prepared to consider some major style changes when time comes to cut off all the damaged ends. You’ll also want to keep in mind that with the countless hours it takes to get those glamorous white locks, it will be another time invested journey to build the color back into the hair when your platinum days are through. That being said, it’s surely not for the faint of heart. For those who want to play it safe or see those results sooner rather than later, the best option for you may just be to invest in a quality wig instead.”
