Are There Any Disadvantages To Having Blonde Hair?

If you have changed your hair colour from brown to blonde then you will need regular maintenance appointments to cover up your roots every 8 weeks or so. Highlights and balayage offers a lower maintenance hair colour as your roots are more blended.
