    I’ve always wanted to go platinum blond but I’m afraid it will damage my hair too much and make it feel straw-like with the bleach and everything?

      If it’s done correctly, you can have very healthy silky hair even after bleaching it platinum. If you have lighter hair, it will be a much easier process. But if you are dark, it’s possible too. It will just take a while.

    I have always wondered how you keep your hair so flawlessly blonde! I was starting to think maybe it was naturally really light. Glad to know there’s a trick to it! :)

    A stranger once told me I’d look good with platinum blonde hair, although after trying on a wig – it was not for my strawberry blonde self. It does, however, look great on you!

    Hi! I completely agree on the virgin hair bit. I do my own (I went to hair school so I don’t feel so bad about it) and going over previously processed hair is a …swearword. But I wanted to ask you this : Who advised you to keep dying your hair throughout your pregnancy? This is not at all supposed to sound cheeky or judgmental. I have been reading a lot about it and all I seem to find are recommendations that you don’t dye your hair at all (or you may only highlight – as the chemicals don’t touch the scalp) during pregnancy. Now, you looked beautiful and put together whilst pregnant. When I get pregnant, I would also like to look beautiful (aka keep looking platinum blonde). So who did you talk to? What was their angle? Was it a big deal? Did you do anything differently than what you talked about in this post? Share your wisdom!

      Hi Charity,
      I did read up on it a bit when I got pregnant. But most of what I read suggested that the small amount of chemical that could possibly be absorbed into your skin durning the bleaching process is not enough to be harmful to the baby when a woman is pregnant. I know there is a lot of debate about it. I think the bigger issue is making sure you are in a well ventilated room when you are doing your hair because the fumes can be harmful. So I always made sure of that. Here is a good article about it –

    Hi Kelli ,
    I have been platinum for about 5 years…and it’s the one colour that I’ve stayed with longer than 2 processes. It’s just “me”. I will be trying your method today. I have a hairdresser do it. She’s really great at trying to get that white look for me. I tone in between bleaching to keep the yellow down (at home). I have a question or 2- my hair seems to always have a ring where the root and previously bleached hair connect… How do I get rid of that? And when using the purple shampoo I get purple ends whitish middle and brassy roots… Why? Is the bleach not on long enough? My natural is ash dark blond. It’s short , thin but a lot! The only time I have had true white like yours…was the very first time I went platinum. I don’t mind it going lavender a but…but I hate the rainbow effect. Any ideas?
    Thanks
    And I LOVE your colour. Just beautiful
