I dye my brown hair platinum myself and I do the roots every 4 or 5 weeks. The color lifts so quickly with the kit I use that it's barely a 15 minute job. Definitely easier NOT to do it, but it's not too tough :) Though I am thinking of going darker again...I like to change it up from time to time!

If you plan on doing it your self: If your hair is dark, do NOT buy a box color and expect it to make you Marilyn Monroe, lol....it will turn you orange, those dyes usually cannot lift dark hair. Go to a professional beauty supply store and get a High Lift blonde shade designed specifically for brunettes (they will specify this on the box) and a 20 or 30 developer. If it still turns out a little brassy, a toner can easily fix that, also found in the beauty supply store.
I don't know ANY friends who dye their hair lighter blonde at home and have it come out looking not-yellowish. I would recommend going to a pro if you can. A lot of places' prices aren't too bad. They will get the color you want and use a toner to get any yellow out of it. My hairstylist recommends for me to use a violet colored shampoo once a week or so for my blonde highlights to keep from getting brassy. I haven't been doing it though! I would think that if you went completely platinum, it would be good to do this too to keep the color light and not brassy. Good luck!

What's a violet colored shampoo? what are the brands that sell it?
