If Demi Lovato still had to do reports on how she spent her summer vacation, we can bet she’d sum it up in one sentence: “I just kept getting blonder and blonder.”

From the honey hue she debuted in May, the singer has kept lightening up to the almost platinum shade she’s sporting today — and she’s been loving every step of the way.

And so have her fans. “The overall reaction is … people like it!” Lovato told PEOPLE, before adding, “I don’t really care if people like it or not. I like being blonde and it’s fun for the summertime.”

She admits that the decision to dye was spontaneous — and her next one will be too. “I never know what I’m going to do next,” she said. “Maybe like a honey brown or a dirty blonde or something, so it’s not too blonde.”

How does her hair handle all that back-and-forth? “What I do is just take care of it a lot,” she shared. “I do olive oil treatments, which are really easy. Also, because of my [Hispanic ethnicity], my hair is really strong naturally.”

Tell us: How often do you dye your hair? How do you keep it healthy?

I think she looks pretty in blonde! And just pretty in general. She seems like a cool girl :) Glad she doesn’t care what people think, why should she?

Demi is still gonna be herself no matter or whether she changes her hair style her hair color…like seriously it dont matter but she is being herself and that matters more than people judging about her looks. Im 15 and i love this stuff.

exactly what maria said. being hispanic doesnt mean your hair is strong. take care of it. like you said olive oil treatments and deep conditioners.

Not everyone is meant to be blonde. Vanessa Hudgens is blonde,Taylor Swift is blonde,and now she’s blonde. next thing you know selena gomez is going to be blonde.

Wont she care when people don’t buy her albums!


I couldn’t care less who dyes their hair but what I never will understand is why those who choose to do it make it so obvious that it is dyed? She looks fake because she doesn’t look like she should be a blond. Complexion etc. isn’t what I perceive a blond to look at. It’s like when African American women dye their hair blond. I mean, if you are going to dye your hair at least make it look realistic. Kelly Osbourne is another example. Her purple hair looks so fake and also makes her look like my late Grandmother.

Looks great! Her skin tone looks perfect with that color. Very few people can pull that off!
