If you have decided to go in for platinum blonde hair color, you need to consider a few things before you actually get it done. 

Is Platinum Blonde Right For Me?

Although you think platinum blonde looks good on fair skin with cool undertones, this is not true as there are many shades available. Platinum hair color will look best if you select the shade and overall look according to your skin tone. You can ask your hairstylist for selecting the best shade according to your skin tone. 

Generally, cool skin tones look best with metallic hues like icy platinum or silver platinum. Warmer skin tones on the other hand will look best with honey blonde or pale pink colors.

Also, bear in mind that the process of coloring hair will be complicated if your hair is dark in color. 

How to Prepare for Your Hair Appointment?

If you are getting this hair color or any other hair color for that matter, you need to prep before your appointment. You should ensure that you did not have your hair colored at least 3 months before. Also, don’t shampoo your hair a day before as the color does not work well on freshly cleansed hair.

How to Maintain Platinum Blonde Hair?

Lightening the color of your hair, even for platinum shades, leads to dryness. Your hair can become dull, brittle, and frizzy after you color it. You can solve this issue by using a nourishing shampoo. You can also go for hair oiling to give back the nourishment and shine to your hair without tinting it.

To ensure that your hair does not have to endure more damage, use a mild shampoo along with a conditioner. Also, don’t style your hair especially with heat for at least three weeks.

Platinum blonde hair color is a high-maintenance hair color. You need to go to the salon every 4-6 weeks for root touch-ups. This is because your hair will grow out in its natural color and if you don’t get a touch-up done, it will look odd with the colored hair. You also need to maintain the cool undertones of your hair after going in for this hair color. For that, you can use a purple shampoo, which will give a purple tinge to maintain the undertone.
