The platinum blond look immortalized by bombshell Pamela Anderson in the widely syndicated show Baywatch is still one of the iconic looks of this generation. This type of hair color has grown to be both classy and sophisticated enough to be rocked out in the high end boulevards of California as well as the unpretentious surfing towns all over the world. You really have to go blond – make that platinum blond--- at least once in your life.
Platinum blond is the lightest shade of hair that is not white. People who were naturally born with this hair color have very wispy thin strands of hair. As a general rule, the darker the natural hair color, the thicker and bigger the hair shaft and the follicle. This is why people with dark brown and black hair seem to have a fuller head of hair compared to those with red or blond hair.
It goes without saying that the bleaching process is a process that can and will damage the hair. The main idea is to make sure that the damage doesn’t go overboard. Damaged bleached hair can be quite hard to manage because of its general lightness and propensity to be hard to fix.
Here’s how you bleach your hair platinum blonde:
- The first step is do some research on what is the best bleaching agent in the market. You may go to a local salon to ask for this information. The best bleaching product could be a bit out of your reach in terms of budget so make sure that you ask for alternatives. Be aware of the trade offs for the reduced cost.
- If you have a friend or a relative who have had their hair bleached, ask them about which brands would be best. You’ll be better off with having a friend help you out in the bleaching process. It will be tough to bleach hair at the back of your head so an extra pair of hands would make the job much easier to accomplish.
- To start, prepare you bleaching solution according to the instructions of the packaging. Make sure that you dilute it consistently with the instructions.
- Start by asking your helper to section off your hair using a fine tooth comb and hair clips. This can make the entire bleaching process more efficient and systematic.
- Use a comb to apply the bleach to your hair. Have a spray bottle of water handy that you can use to deal with any scalp irritation.
- Once you have bleached all the sections, give your hair a good rinse.
- Use shampoo that is especially manufactured for damaged hair so that you can revitalize your hair strands from the damage and abuse it took during the bleaching process.
If you want to maintain this look, you will have to bleach your roots every other week so that your darker hair color won’t show. Keep using rejuvenating shampoos and conditioners so that the damage to your hair will be minimized.
