Q: I am currently getting a full set of highlights every four weeks, and it's starting to get a little bit pricey. It seems as if my roots never completely disappear for longer than two weeks. In these pictures I had just recently had my hair highlighted.
I really want to get the same light blonde, almost platinum hair colour at home.
I don't mind going to the salon every so often so I can get the dimensional look of highlights–I just want something to hold me over a little longer, and that looks like it matches the colour I have now.
My hair is naturally a dark, mousy blonde that pulls brassy. I am happy going lighter too, if that helps. Can you help a desperate girl out? — Hope
A: Hello Hope, thank you for your question!
The blonde suits you very much.
Here is the best way to deal with the re-growth:
- Get the shade 12-11 from the Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Royal range.
- Mix it with 40 volume peroxide.
- Leave it on your hair for 45 minutes.
- Shampoo out.
Be very careful with your application. DO NOT go over the already-lightened hair—only the dark, mousy hair.
Your end result should be a very light platinum blonde and no brassiness. Enjoy!
