5 super hacks to go blonde with minimal damage at home

You don’t have to spend hundreds to transform your brown hair into blonde - these days it's 100% possible to achieve at home. From Bella Hadid to Natalie Portman, these famous women have undergone a major blonde hair transformation, and we’ve learned a few effective tricks from their hairstylists to pass it on to you. These 5 hacks will help you to go blonde from brunette with the least damage.

Hack 1: Strengthen the bonds

Preparation is the key when you decide to go blonde from brown.

"If you're going platinum blonde, you need to use a product that helps repair and strengthen the bonds in your hair fibers,” - a celebrity hairstylist, colourist and social influencer Kristin Ess who is responsible for Lucy Hale’s blonde hair transformation, has shared with Marie Claire magazine.

Bleach strips the oils, so you need to build up extra moisture in your hair before lightening it. Apply conditioning masks with oils - coconut, Argon and olive oils are few to name.

Your hairdryer and styling tools also absorb the oils, so it’s worth getting a Blow Dry Hair Treatment that would build a protective layer on your hair and lock the moisture in.

Lastly, don’t wash your hair for at least 2 days before bleaching to let the natural oils protect your hair from the damage.

Hack 2: Bleach in rounds

Find a cost-effective Home Bleach Kit and lighten your brown hair to blonde in a few sessions, up to three shades each time. That would allow your hair to recover and restore its moisture balance.

Rachel Brosnahan is a great example of how going from brunette to blonde with minimal damage is possible, besides you’ll have a chance to enjoy different hair colours in-between sessions.

Hack 3: Get brown hair with blonde highlights

To seamlessly transit from brown to sun-kissed hair, enhance your dark hair with Blonde Highlights, like Natalie Portman just did. That’s a great option if you're bored with your current hair colour but also don’t want anything too drastic, and the main bonus - much less damage will be done.

Hack 4: Rock the rooted blonde trend

Instead of going a full-mode blonde, try the rooted blonde look to leave half of your natural hair 100% healthy. Margot Robbie’s naturally growing roots is a perfect example of how the brown to blonde hair transformation doesn’t have to be all radical. Apart from saving your scalp and roots from the damage, you'll also save up on maintenance - just use a blonde toner to keep the colour fresh.

Hack 5: Use toner instead of hair colour

Talking about the toner... When Bella Hadid brought her brown hair to brassy yellow blonde, it was a bit of a shock for everyone. Turned out, that just like Rachel Brosnahan, Bella has dyed her hair in a few sessions and most likely used a hair toner to get her current perfect blonde look. Use a Conditioning Honey Blonde Toner to maintain the color and improve the condition of your hair.
