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 it looks good on her. Why shouldn’t she have some fun with her hair?? Everyone else does!

I thought it was unhealthy for ur hair to keep getting dyed. Like in the last year she has had like 5 different hair colors. Demi said in an interview that shes bipolar so how she deals with it she changes her hair color with the mood shes in at that moment. I really like the red on her or black or the pink ends like she did last summer. I get my hair highlighted once a year.

Isn’t funny how someone that states that “they do not care” actually believe the opposite? It’s merely a defensive front. I’m sorry, but she just doesn’t look well with light hair, maybe since her natural hue is darker… But it just looks unnatural and not very healthy. But hey, do whatever you want. You’ve certainly got the funds to do it! I wish I could afford the items the 1% are able to purchase.

As a hairstylist for 20+ years, I honestly think it is brassy, cheap, and garish. Her colorist needs to put their license back in the Cheerios box where they found it and give her money back. It’s not even a good blonde tone.

Uh, shut up about the hair and just sing, girl!

I loved her with the brown hair, but it wasn’t bad with the honey blond. As long as she likes it that’s all that matter right? I just hope she doesn’t pull a Miley and cuts it all off.
