Session 1: Before
When I tried to gauge what color I'd be walking out of the salon with after the first session (strawberry blond, auburn, Fanta orange, etc.), Daniel was vague but realistic. He emphasized that it normally takes days — "not hours, days" — to make an Asian platinum blond. Though it's pretty much the same process for dark-haired girls of any ethnicity, it often takes longer to turn Asians blond because Asian hair is thicker in diameter and often has a higher level of melanin (that is, your natural pigments).
