Jessica Alba’s Hair Revolution: Blonde, then Brown and Back Again

  Jessica Alba Goes from Blonde to Brown Hair Color
Quite the hair color chameleon, Jessica Alba has altered her hair color again. Since her pregnancy last year, Jessica Alba has been seen sporting a dark, chestnut hue hair color (which, aside from her bangs, I liked quite a bit). However, in the past few days, we’ve seen the Jessica Alba strut her stuff in a new shade of blonde.

“Jessica Alba
Blonde to Brown”
Many clients often ask me how celebrities, like Jessica Alba, are able to switch their hair from brown to blonde and back again so often (Jessica Alba’s new hue is rumored to be for a new role she will be playing, so it looks like the new mom is back to work).  I will tell you, like I tell them, that although the switch can be done, it can’t be had without quite a bit of damage to your tresses.

Here’s how to switch your hue from brown to blonde:

If your desire is to go lighter, please stick with your hairdresser on this one. Whenever you are lightening hair color shades a more than a couple levels, it requires more than one step (lightening and toning) and your hairdresser is an expert at performing the required steps. Both before and after lightening your hair, make sure to use a fortifying deep conditioner on a regular basis to condition and strengthen the hair strands. One I always recommend to my clients is the Enjoy Hair Mask along with the Enjoy Intensive Reconstructive Spray because it leaves your hair silky and strong.

Here’s how to switch your hue from blonde to brown:

Heading to the dark side (so to speak) is a much easier process than the latter. Again, if you are only switching up your strand hair color by a few shades and you’ve colored your hair before with no issue, you can attempt the switch at home. I’d suggest using a semi-permanent hair color product in your desired shade. Make sure that you apply the color all over, fully saturating all strands. If you don’t fully saturate all strands, you run the risk of a spotty outcome. If you are heading to the hair salon (smart girl) to deepen your hair color, ask your hairdresser for a rich brunette color.

Remember my tips when you want to become a hair color chameleon like Jessica Alba. And keep in mind that although it is usually ok to switch from one to the other, it isn’t always a great idea to switch back and forth frequently.
