Going Blonde with Aveda’s Full Spectrum Demi+ Colour

Aveda Colour Demi+I’m going to let you guys in on a secret… I’m not a natural blonde.


You’re all probably thinking – duh, who died and made her Captain Obvious?


But I’ve spent the last two years chasing after the perfect shade of blonde. Now, any Asian sister out there will understand how hard it is to maintain colour jobs and keep it looking fresh. There’s nothing worse than having your colour go brassy which is the unfortunate and inevitable fact that we have to live with.

My hair journey has been an ongoing chronicle because we don’t just go from dark to light in one session (well… you could…but you’ll be saying goodbye to the quality of your locks and no responsible hairdresser should let you do that to your hair), it requires time and dedication. Every 5-6 weeks I’d have to get a colour refresh which generally consists of a full head of balayage.

If you’ve been with me from day dot you’ll know that my hair has transformed drastically over the years. I went from routinely dying my hair black (yes – for a while there I insisted on having gothic black hair because my Asian black wasn’t enough) to making the commitment to blonde. For the past year, Aveda has been giving my hair the TLC it deserves and they’ve recently launched their Full Spectrum Demi+Treatment Hair Color – cue excited squeal.

So here’s what you need to know.
