Going From Platinum to Dark Brown Hair

Platinum to Brown

Going From Platinum to Dark Brown Hair: For the last year I have been platinum (my natural color is medium to dark brown.) The upkeep of platinum hair is very hard if you are someone who doesn’t like having dark roots show all the time.

I loved my platinum for a long time! Because of the frequent bleaching, my hair became damaged and broken. In fact one of the last times that I flat ironed it, I burnt it so badly it looked like I stood too close to a campfire.

Keratin products

My stylist Nan Grekoff (co-owner of Tangled Salon and Spa in Hudson, WI) brought my hair back to life with a cut and recommending the AG series of Keratin products. I am using Refuel Shampoo, Restore Conditioner, Repair Serum and Keratin Repair. I highly recommended these products to repair hair’s cuticle and reverse the signs of damage.


So now that my hair is on the mend, I decided that it was a perfect time to go back to dark. Nan used Kuene Color fill (red) to start. This step is used so that the color absorbs into the hair better and lasts longer. After applying the red she blew it dry and then applied color from the roots to the ends and processed according to the manufacturer.

Missy Before and After

I absolutely love my hair, it looks shiny and healthy! Thank you Nan and Tangled Salon & Spa.

Nan did an awesome job. It’s not easy going from platinum to brown without getting a muddy color. It looks beautiful!

I thought platinum was hard to maintain and costly, so I went brunette, it was fine until I turned 40ish and then it is the same maintenance as the blonde (because now I have random platinum roots!)

Also it was probably the conditioner you were using if your platinum hair was breaking… I never had any problems with breakage or damage.
