Demi Lovato's Blonde Hair: 'I Don't Really Care If People Like It Or Not'

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?

It doesn’t matter how strong your hair is, it can only take so much coloring before it gets weak and brittle. She probably has extensions too, which is damaging to the scalp.

I’m glad she doesn’t care what other people think of her! Good for her! Just be who you are, do what you want, and you’ll be the happiest of all…

I think she gets her eye make up tips from Avril.

I find her to be incredibly beautiful.

I don’t care how “strong” your hair is, it is NOT healthy to go from dirty blonde to platinum blonde to honey brown in 6 months.
But you know what? Its not my hair. She’s 21… when her hair is dead by 30, I don’t wanna hear her whining.

This is perfect. She doesn’t care about what I think of her hair and I don’t care about her hair. (I just clicked on the link to read all about it…)

She said in a previous article the reason she dyes her hair so much is because of her Bipolar disorder. So what? She constantly changes her mind. I think its actually kind of cool she uses her hair as outlet.

Go Demi.

Well thanks Demi, I thought we were friends :(

Well, since she does not care what people thing about her hair, I have decided that I will not care that she does not care about what people think about her hair. If you do not care that I do not care that she does not care about what people think about her hair, there is no need to post that sentiment on this message board.

I don’t care what she does with her hair, I’m sure she don’t care what I do with mine. Just tell people u’ve been really happy with ur style lately and if ur happy right on. Adding on that *u don’t care* is almost a way to push more of a reaction out of others
