Things First Time Blondes Need to Know - D'Ametri's Salon

Spring is here and if you haven’t already done it, you’re probably thinking of lightening your hair in anticipation of summer. But before you ditch your brunette for the first time there are a few things you should know. Here we are going to share with you the most important things you need to consider before deciding to go blonde for the first time.

Consult With Your Colorist

The first step in the process should be a consultation with your colorist. Find a picture of  your dream blonde to bring with you so your colorist knows exactly what you want. They will assess the condition of your hair to determine if any pretreatment is necessary to get your hair ready for the bleaching process. Even though hair color formulas are gentler today than they’ve ever been, going lighter always means that there will be some minimal level of damage, so it’s very important to make sure your hair is healthy before you get started.

Be Patient

If you’re only going a couple of shades lighter you may be able to reach your desired color in a single appointment. However, if you are going from a dark brunette to light blonde the process will likely need to be done gradually over time, so you’ll need to be patient. This will allow your hair time to recover between appointments.

Expect to Pay More

Because going blonde can involve multiple steps over several appointments, naturally, the cost is going to be higher than a color that can be achieved in a single session. You’re probably looking at an appointment every 4-6 weeks until your desired color is reached. After that, you’ll need a touchup every 5-10 weeks to bend in new growth, which will add to the cost of being blonde


We’ve already mentioned the need for regular touchups to keep your color looking great, but you’ll also want to invest in some special hair care products to keep your blonde bright and vibrant. A weekly deep conditioning treatment will help keep your strands soft and supple. You’ll also want shampoo and conditioner formulated for blonde hair. These usually contain special purple pigments to keep brassiness at bay.
