How can you lighten your hair ethically and keep the condition in check is a question most people struggle with the answer. The reality is if you are prepared to be patient then it’s possible but if you want to step out of work on a Friday night at 5 with black hair and walk back in Monday a soft beachy blonde then you are dillusional.

Now no matter what you have been told about additives that help maintain the integrity of the hair, there is still limitations you can not buy yourself out of. Hair is non descriminational nor does it care, the structure and it’s strength are the only thing that will get you blonde and keep the tone nothing else.

If you have been colouring it black since you saw your first grey hair and woke up and realised it looks fake ( about time ) then the transition from black to blonde will take you some time. By ” some time ” we are not meaning between 1-3pm on the Saturday after you wake up. It requires several sittings over several days or weeks depending on the way your hair reacts. 

The reality is whatever has gone on your hair will effect the process and the result and no amount of wishing will change it. We get asked if heat can be added because some salons add heat to speed it up.

When you add heat like this, it may speed it up however it swells the hair shaft and causes more damage as well as a result effected by the swelling of the hair, which in the days after the color will change. 

We suggest a in depth consultation about your desired goal and reality in result as well as timing . Once we have discussed possible results and we are all happy, then we proceed.
