3 Tips for Dyeing Natural Hair Blonde, Manhattan, New York

Changing the hair color of natural hair requires extra care. That’s because type 4 curls are coarse and wiry, making them naturally dryer, so bleach can cause dehydration. However, there are ways to lighten dark pigments safely. If you want to go blonde, use the guide below to prepare for a discussion with a stylist.

How to Go Blonde Without Damaging Natural Hair

1. Ask About the Products

When you discuss the service with a stylist, ask what products they use. To preserve the structural integrity of the strands, the salon should only use materials free of ammonia and sulfates.

Dyeing agents that contain avocado, grapeseed, olive, and shea oils help your mane retain moisture and remain nourished to minimize breakage when exposed to harsher chemicals.

2. Take the Process Slowly

New-York-New-York-hair-colorTransforming natural hair from black or brown to blonde requires several stages. A stylist assesses the condition of your hair to determine what steps to take. 

They may also perform a strand test. The test involves applying a chemical to a single lock to see how long it takes to lift the curl’s natural hair color. If you’ve straightened or colored your hair before, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired color without stripping your locks.

3. Maintain It

You’ll need to care for your hair at home between professional appointments. As dehydration is the biggest concern for kinky hair, use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners formulated for your texture.

A stylist will recommend at-home treatment systems, such as nourishing masks. Masks help repair the follicles damaged by bleach.
