But as I told you before, the waiting time varies according to your hair.
 It all depends on specific cases.

  • If your hair is dark brown and you dye it blonde, you’ll start to notice that growth after 15 to 20 days. Of course, the roots will start to show.

However, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. On the contrary, many clients want to have the roots dark as a false growth effect and it looks great on them.

 If you don’t mind the growth and can wait, it’s a good solution. 

Otherwise, if you don’t like those roots showing at all,   you can give them a touch-up after 20 days. 

But try to apply dye only at the root not to damage the rest of the hair.


  • If you have a lot of gray hair and you dye it blonde, it may not be as noticeable and you can disguise it. Then,  wait 4 weeks to dye it again. 

My client Susi used to apply ash blonde every 25 days or so. There was a time when she couldn’t come to the salon and spent three months without coloring her hair. 

I thought I was going to find a disaster when I returned. However, the gray hair blended in perfectly with the blonde and was almost unnoticeable!

So, she realized she could delay the salon visit much longer.


  • If your blonde tends to be brassy or orange, and that’s why you want to dye it, let me tell you that it isn’t necessary.

You can simply tone it. In this case, ask your hairdresser how often, how much, and how to do it. That way,  you’ll keep the color longer. 



  • Hair grows an average of 1 centimeter per month.

However, it grows much more than this in some cases.

In that case, you might need that touch-up at week four.  It depends on whether you can stand the growth.

  • If you wash your hair daily,  the color will wash out much faster  and you’ll have to go to the salon probably 3 weeks after dyeing it blonde.

On the other hand, if you wash your hair every 2 or 3 days, the color will last much longer.

  • If  you use shampoo with sulfates,  the color will wash it out very fast.

Try to purchase products free of salts and sulfates.



  • If you overuse heat tools like hair dryer and flat iron,  you’ll also have to visit the salon more often to dye your hair blonde again.


On the other hand,  if you take care of your hair with color care treatments,  wash it every 2 or 3 days, don’t use flat irons. and take all the precautions that color requires, your color will last much longer!



To conclude, the time you have to wait to dye your blonde hair will depend on your likes and the care you give to your hair.

The truth is that the less you hurry to do it,  the less damage you’ll do to your hair,  as dyes dry out the hair fiber.


 If you dye too often, you can make your hair porous, dull, and unhealthy.

I’m sure you want to look dazzling blonde, but  I bet you want your hair to be healthy as well. So, be patient and wait!
