Maintenance – What Experts Say:
Although this may seem a bit odd, you should skip on applying conditioner. It can reflect light and take away your new color while allowing the previous one to peek through.
Stay away from excessive use of heat tools. Bleach and heat don’t go hand in hand, so try to keep your hair long & healthy on its own, while staying away from curling irons, blow dryers, hair straighteners, etc. If you really have to use them, make sure you protect your hair with heat-protective sprays.
Pass on using oil-based products but use a lot more of lavender shampoos & toners, as previously mentioned. Oils can awake the yellow tint in your hair, and cause it to lose bleach a lot faster.
White Blonde VS Platinum Blonde
The main difference between these two blonde hair shades is that platinum hair will always have a slight hint of color to it. This means that it is very light and bleach-like, but with some yellow tones.
However, white blonde is a pure white (almost silver like color) where all of your natural hair is bleached, and there are no signs of other colors peeking through.
