Kim Kardashian shocked fans by going blonde seemingly overnight, but the reality star actually spent a week preparing for her big New York Fashion Week debut. 

In a post on her website on Thursday, the 36-year-old reality star opened up about her silver hair and the week it took to achieve the color. 

“I’ve been talking about going blonde again for a long time, and I’m so happy I did! I know a lot of people initially thought I was wearing a wig, but it’s my real hair,” Kardashian wrote. “My amazing stylist, Chris Appleton, dyed my hair and got it to the most perfect platinum, silvery-white color.”

“I was so scared that my hair would get ruined. It took about 12 hours for the first round of dyeing my hair -- we definitely took our time with it so it wouldn’t get damaged,” she revealed. "Then, we did another five-hour session. In the end, so worth it.”

“The last time I went platinum, a few years back, I dyed it in one sitting and never gave it the proper time,” Kardashian confessed. “I had to spend a week with yellow hair, just [using Olaplex] and conditioning it every day, until we toned it and got to lift this amazing white-silver color."

“I’m so happy with it and want to keep it a while!” she added.
