The upcoming film Blonde is set to hit the OTT screens on September 28 and it has roped us in with its first look and trailers. With the memories of late-legend Marilyn Monroe being portrayed with grace on the silver screen, in the books about Marilyn Monroe, it is said that she had her hair bleached every three weeks with a consult of hairstylists who would tend to her hair to give the alluring blonde look. Definitely a thought to ponder: how beauty can be a curse.

4. Geralt of Rivia by Henry Cavill

The all-time great game The Witcher was adapted into a TV series and what a great decision it was. The character played by Henry Cavill is one of the best witchers out there, Geralt of Rivia stands out from the rest, as he has white hair – and not exactly because of his age. It’s not surprising that not all witchers-to-be survive this process (Trial of The Grasses), but Geralt was a special case. Thanks to his ability to resist this trial, he was subjected to more tests, which ended up turning his skin and hair platinum blonde, but they also gave him even more abilities than other witchers.

It isn’t easy switching things up with your black hair but it’s possible. You must understand the steps on how to prepare for it. If you dont want to be put through the “Trial of the Grasses” to get this sexy platinum blonde hair, we may have just the right tools for you!

How To Get Platinum Blonde Hair Done

1. Always consult your hairdresser: Before bleaching your precious hair, you should get the required inputs from the hairdresser. The hair consultation can help you understand the quality of your hair and also provide you with products that would be difficult to handle or use at home.

2. Going blonde is a multi-step process: You must give your hairdresser/colourist a good idea of what your usual hair routine is like and whether you use a lot of heat-styling tools at home. They will need to know everything to set your hair up for success!

3. Watch out for the ‘Halo Effect’:  One must know that colour banding appears when colour is layered in a full-length application on top of previously coloured hair. The result is hair which may appear to have two different shades, with a visible colour band around the previous hairline.

4. Going platinum is an ultimate commitment: With weekly supplies required to keep your hair healthy, going by my personal experience, I highly recommend you apply protein-rich hair masks and products to help reduce hair damage and split ends.

5. Patience is the key: As an overhyped person myself, the process of bleaching was agonising  as it lasted for two days! With the bleach set in my hair for 6 hours on the first day and I wasn’t able to get the best results, the next day, it took another 4 hours to set. I would suggest, you take a fidget toy or download a movie when you get your hair done because it’s exhausting and boring as hell.

How To Maintain It With The Best Tools

Simply put, it’s a lot of upkeep. Platinum hair requires moisture, as well as three-to-six-week touch-ups. So be sure to visit the nearest hair stylist who you can trust and one with lots of experience. Platinum hair is high-maintenance and requires touch-ups every four to six weeks with a professional hairdresser, to ensure your hair stays healthy and doesn’t get damaged from all the bleaching.
