Playing around with hair color can be a fun and easy way to change up your look. If you have been day dreaming about changing your look with blonde hair, there is a lot to consider before you go delving into the beautiful shades of blonde. Having blonde hair can be lovely and gorgeous, but that beauty comes with a cost. Blonde hair is a serious commitment that needs a lot of love and care. The process of getting to your favorite blonde shade can take a major toll on your hair and your wallet. The good news, is that no matter what skin tone you have, there is a pretty shade of blonde that will look great on you. So if you are up for the challenge, go ahead and start the process.
Consider your everyday lifestyle. Blonde hair comes with a more sensitive upkeep. For example, with blonde hair, you can't jump right into a pool. Blonde hair absorbs chlorine and other chemicals that will give it a green appearance after swimming. Also, blonde hair that is washed in a shower where the water is high in copper or iron will eventually start to look orangy-red or green. In regards to washing blond hair, it is advised to shampoo your hair every three days to keep it looking healthy and toned correctly.
