White Hot Hair: Platinum is Back

White Hot Hair: Platinum is Back

White blonde and platinum shades are alluring and timeless. Almost luminous in appearance, the platinum hue has become a hallmark of glamour and sophistication. Because the shade is so dramatic, it rarely occurs naturally, which makes it a consistent favourite in the world of luxury hair aesthetics and high fashion runway shows. Foxy Locks, synonymous with premium quality and style, brings you the ultimate guide to not only embracing this trend but also maintaining its sleek appearance. Be warned! White blonde is a high maintenance shade, and even natural blondes will suffer with root regrowth after a couple of weeks of colouring.

Celebrity Inspiration

White blonde hair is extremely popular amongst celebrities and red carpet appearances, setting the trend on fire throughout award seasons in particular. From the iconic looks of Marilyn Monroe to the modern-day styles of Kim Kardashian and Gwen Stefani, this colour makes a bold statement, exuding confidence and chic elegance. These celebrities make it a key part of their personal style, even hitting the headlines when they make the transition from dark to light locks.

Maintaining Platinum Perfection

Adopting this striking shade is just the first step in your platinum journey. You may require multiple sessions of bleach, paced out over several weeks, to achieve the colour without causing significant damage. Seek professional consultation before undertaking this at home, you do NOT want to frazzle your locks or risk breakage. Keep in mind, you don't have to opt for a scalp bleach (when the shade is applied from root to tip), a balayage or root blend is much easier to care for and maintain in comparison! 

Once you've accomplished your ideal shade, white blonde hair requires careful attention to keep looking fresh and healthy. Here’s how you can maintain its luxurious sheen:

  • Regular toning treatments are vital for maintaining the cool, crisp shade of white blonde. Purple shampoos and conditioners are specifically designed to neutralize brassy, yellow tones that can emerge over time, keeping the colour true to its original brightness. You can also opt for a range of different platinum undertones. Speak to your stylist about the differences between lilac, grey, silver and champagne undertones to find a platinum shade that is unique to you.
  • Platinum hair undergoes significant chemical processing during the lightening, which can strip it of moisture and lead to brittleness. Deep conditioning treatments infuse your hair with the necessary moisture and nutrients, helping to restore its natural strength and elasticity.
  • Heat Protection: Frequent styling with heat can cause significant dryness and split ends in platinum hair. Using a heat protectant forms a protective barrier on the hair shaft, minimizing heat damage and helping to preserve the integrity of your colour and hair health.
  • Regular Trims: To prevent broken ends, regular trims are crucial. They help maintain the hair's health and appearance, ensuring that your white blonde locks look neat and well-cared-for.

Shades of Platinum Foxy Locks Extensions

Foxy Locks stocks an extensive range of natural hair colours to suit all shades and tastes. Here’s our analysis of our platinum blondes to help you choose the shade that’s right for you:

Iced Latte is a cool white blonde, with icy undertones. This is one of our lightest blonde shades, with milky highlights adding more depth and dimension to the hair extensions than a solid platinum shade would.

Silver Fox is a frosty white blonde, with cool grey hues and lavender undertones. This shade is perfect for achieving a striking, high-fashion look with your blonde.

Platinum Blonde is a pale, milky blonde with champagne undertones. Platinum is a warmer-toned alternative to Silver Fox, with the same high contrast impact.

Caring for Your Platinum Foxy Locks Extensions

Proper care of your Foxy Locks extensions in white blonde is key to maintaining their quality and longevity:

  • Gentle Brushing: Extensions can become tangled more easily than natural hair. Using a soft-bristle brush gently detangles without pulling or damaging the hair, which is essential to maintain the integrity and appearance of your extensions.
  • Avoid Over Washing: Over washing can strip the extensions of their natural sheen and moisture. Washing them infrequently with specially formulated shampoos helps to preserve the natural look and feel of the extensions, ensuring they remain lush and vibrant.
  • Storage: Proper storage is crucial to prevent tangling and damage when you're not wearing them. Storing extensions in a dry, flat place, ideally using Foxy Locks’ extension hangers and carriers, helps maintain their shape and quality.
