7 Tips When Going From Blonde To Brunette


Post by Taislany Gomes • February 29, 2016 • Beauty

Going from blonde to brunette is not an easy task. People say that with a new hair color comes a whole new personality. I have to agree! I was blonde for 4 years and I loved every moment of it; but to maintain those beautiful blonde locks, you need dedicate your whole life around it. Which I never did so well. I work 40 hours a week on my day job as well as numerous additional hours on the blog. Going back to brown was a great way for me to save time, money and stress.

You should take good care of your hair, no matter what color you go for. But darker colors reduce the appearance of a dry and damaged hair. It will also give the illusion of fuller and healthier hair.

I posted the “after” picture on my social media, and some of you wanted to know the reason behind the change and who inspired me. So, I present you: 7 Tips When Going From Blonde To Brunette.

Some of the previous colors:Blonde To Brunette

Here are my: blonde to brown hair before and after pictures, but if unlike me, you’re planning to get blonde. Here’s my Vlog: The Day I Became Blonder.

Who inspired me: Camila Coutinho
Blonde To BrunetteI wasn’t sure what color to go for. That’s why I asked you, my beautiful readers and followers on social media to give me your opinion. I knew I wanted something darker, but still wanted to have a few golden highlights to give some dimension to the hair. I went for a similar hair-cut as the one Camila Coutinho has. And let me tell you something: it feels lighter and so much healthier. Best thing? As it grows, the hair will have a beachy vibe to it. Perfect for the summer.
Blonde To BrunetteWhen I decided the exact look I wanted to go for, I reached out to a professional and discussed the options before choosing the ideal tone. Quite often, we like a tone that is not ideal, so make sure to research and consult your hairdresser before doing anything to your hair. Meet My Hairstylist:Bernardo Vasconcelos.

7 Tips When Going From Blonde To Brunette:


1.
Have your makeup “on-point”. The makeup can make your new hair pop-out even more. I mean… everything looks better with a little makeup on. When I changed from blonde to brunette; I will tend to go for a quick smokey eye and pale pink lipstick (Brave from MAC is my favorite).

2. Get hair masks. They will keep your hair shiny and radiant. I’ve used one from Vitaderm, here are my thoughts on it: VitaDerm For Your Dry Hair. If you’re on a budget, head to the kitchen and grab your coconut oil. Leave it in for a few hours and then wash it out. You’ll be surprised by the results, it works wonders and your hair will be hydrated like never before.

3. Reactivate the color every 15 days. If like me, you had platinum blonde, you’ll need to touch it up so the color does not fade away.

4. Cut the ends. I know.. we always get tempted not to cut our hair because we want to let it grow, but by not cutting it as often as we should, the hair won’t develop healthily. You don’t need to go crazy like I did. But it’s vital to cut the ends every 6 to 8 weeks to prevent the formation of split ends.

5. Watch your shower temperature. This may be easier to do during spring/summer. But, when washing the hair, it is important not to let the water get too hot. Excess of heat can damage the hair volume while cold water enhances the the products used to condition the locks.

6. Be careful with the sun. Just like the skin, if subjected to sun daily it can damage hair. If you live in a tropical country or you’re planning to go somewhere warm. Make sure to apply leave-in conditioner at least once a day. It is also worth using a thermal protector with sunscreen if you go to the beach.

7. Take your vitamins. I have only realized how important taking vitamins are a few months ago. I can already see the results. I have recently started taking Pantogar which can help you restore your hair’s healthy balance and also claims to make your nails stronger (it really does). There are different brands, so research the right one for you. Oh, be patient. It takes a few months but it’s totally worth the wait.

Vitamins I suggest: Pantogar, HairBurst and Biotin. These vitamins claim to maintain beautiful, healthy skin and hair that starts from within.

The brunette version of me:Blonde To Brunetteblonde to brunetteHello, it’s still me Ha-Ha! To go with the new brown hair I chose to go for a casual but classy look. The shirt has a lighter shade of denim while the skirt has a darker tone which creates a slimming effect. I would suggest that you don’t wear a denim outfit that’s has the same texture or wash. You don’t want to come across as the cheesy matchy kinda person.  To elevate the look, I threw on a tweed coat, a statement blue necklace and picked my favorite grey boots. Voilà! A low-key but stylish day time look.

Monday Quote: “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.

you look awesome with brown hair! i never really experiment on my hair color, i kinda like it as it is and can’t imagine having any other color than black hahaha. but it’s really fun to see other people exploring new colors every now and then. i heard about how people sometimes get treated differently depending on whether they’re blonde or brunette, as some people are under the prejudgment that blondes are all about fun and brunettes are smarter or something like that. i never believe that’s true but out of curiosity, did you experience any different treatment like that?

Taislany Gomes Reply:

Hey Wynne, Thank you so much! I am very glad you like it. About your question.. I don’t think they get treated differently (to their face), but there’s a study that shows brunettes do seem to be taken more seriously in the work place. My boyfriend has also mentioned that my dark hair gives people the impression that I someone with a lot of business savvy. So, I guess it does make a different impact on people. XOXO

I think you look beautiful both ways. I always wanted to go blond or a little lighter kind of like your (bottom row second pic from the left) it reminds me totally of Jennifer lopez. But I am just to scared to go that light. I guess I will just keep my brown hair, plus it is easier to maintain like you mentioned. BTW I love your outfit in this post
