Touching Up Dark Roots with Bleached Blonde Hair

Touching Up Dark Roots with Bleached Blonde Hair

Being a bleached blonde can be fun but maintaining your roots can be challenging if your natural hair is a significantly darker shade. The contrast between the two colors can be stark, causing frequent trips to the salon or regular root touch ups at home. We have some tips for extending the lifespan of a dye job and making it easy to keep your bleached blonde hair looking great even with dark roots.

How Often Do I Need to Touch Up Roots for Blonde Hair?

Contrary to what many people think, bleached blonde hair does not need to be touched up immediately upon the first sign of root growth. The sweet spot in terms of the length of dark roots against bleach blonde hair is half an inch.  Any shorter and you risk over-dyeing hair. Any longer and the coloring may change, causing it to become resistant to the new hue. From a time perspective, ½ an inch usually equates to four week intervals, but it is important to remember that everyone’s rate of hair growth is unique and individual.

The Coloring Process

The coloring process for touching up bleached blonde roots will be the same as what was done to your hair when it was first colored. First, you will have to bleach your hair to lighten it. After that, a toner matching the color of the rest of your hair is applied to neutralize the yellow tone of the bleach. Bleach should always be applied by sectioning the hair.
