I've been planning a hair related article for months and months now and today I'm finally at the point where I'm 100% happy and satisfied with my hair, so it definitely was about time for me to finally write this hair article. If you're following me on Instagram (@trendiquemagazine), then you'll know that I've been blonde for years and years now. I'm a natural blonde, but I do dyed my hair platinum blonde over the last few years. I was thinking about going from blonde to brown for quite some time now and I finally had the courage to do it- all by myself.

Disclaimer: This is what worked for me and my hair. Please keep in mind that we all have different hair and a different hair structure, so what worked for me might not work exactly the same for you. It always depends on your hair structure and the color your hair is.

People in my closest circle know, that I hate going to the hairdresser and I always have to cut and dye my hair all by myself, even though I am not a prof. hairdresser or colorist. I know that every hairdresser knows what he's doing, but I only trust myself when it comes to my hair. I've been cutting and dying my hair myself for years!

Disclaimer #2: Before you dye your hair by yourself you should really know your hair. My hair is not the thickest but also not the thinest and always have been super tough and strong when it comes to coloring it. If your hair is very thin and sensitive, please do not color it by yourself- speak to a prof. hairdresser and colorist first!

HOW I WENT FROM BLONDE TO BROWN IN LESS THAN A DAY

Going from platinum blonde to brown hair is definitely not the easiest thing to do and no hairdresser will do this step for you in one day. The risk is simply too high! If you're going from blonde to brown, you're risking to get a green tint in your hair and we definitely not want that. Using a hair dye with some gold or red in it will help to avoid a green tint. Avoid using ash- or natural brown shades.

When I started dying my hair from blonde to brown it was completely platinum blonde- however, I did had roots about a few centimeters, so I basically had two different hair colors to work with. This made the whole process even more risky for me, because I knew that my roots will end up darker than the rest of my hair.

WHAT HAIR DYE DID I USE?

I dyed my hair by myself SO many times and always used drugstore hair dye for it. I know they are some great professional hair dyes out there everyone can buy, but I find it a lot easier with the drugstore ones. They are already mixed together, which will save you some time. I used the Schwarzkopf Diadem silk color creme in the shade 717 light brown. If your hair is as long as mine, definitely get two packages otherwise it will not be enough for your whole hair! I also used a hair dyeing brush to distribute the hair dye evenly on the roots.

I started dyeing my hair not with freshly washed hair, because your hair is a lot more contestable when it's freshly washed.

I started with my roots and always sectioned thin layers to make sure every single hair is covered in hair dye. From here you'll have to work quite fast, otherwise your roots will be even darker than the rest of the hair because the exposure time will be unavoidable longer. After I dyed my roots, I brushed through them and sectioned my hair in a few thin sections to dye the lengths. When my whole hair was covered in hair dye I put a very thin and transparent plastic bag around it and let it sit for 45 minutes.

After the 45 minutes I washed it all out and used the care conditioner that came with the Diadem hair dye and let it influence for two to three minutes.

Voila! That's how fast I went from platinum blonde to light brown hair and I am more than happy with the outcome.
