Blonde Hair Care & tips for keeping it looking healthy & full of vitality!

Whether you were born with blonde hair or you’ve decided to lighten up your look at the salon, blonde locks require a pretty specific maintenance routine. From keeping the color from turning brassy, making sure your ends don’t get dried out and protecting your hair from UV rays, there are some very important things to take into consideration when you’re a blonde or planning to go blonde.  Even blonde highlights need extra care.
  • Use a UV protective spray. Especially in the summer but also year round, make sure you’re guarding your hair against harmful UV rays that can change the color and dry out strands.
  • Get purple shampoo. Strange as it may sound, purple shampoo keeps your hair color from turning brassy, which can happen with other shampoos that aren’t specifically formulated for blonde hair. Try Joico Endure Violet Sulfate Free Shampoo.
  • Deep condition often. If you’ve bleached your hair to be a blonde, you’ve already stripped it of some color and moisture. To avoid looking like you’ve got straw for hair, use a deep conditioning treatment, and use it often.  Malibu C Blondes Natural Wellness Treatment brightens blondes and removes & prevents hard water mineral build-up.  It's great because it is both fragrance and sulfate free!
  • Find a dry shampoo that works for you, and make sure it’s for blonde hair (not brunette).  AG|Hair Dry Shampoo for Blondes is great! Refreshing your hair without shampooing will help keep the color vibrant for longer.
  • Before going into a pool, use bottled water to get your hair wet. If your hair is already soaking wet when you go into a pool, it won’t soak up the chlorine in the water, which is what can turn blonde hair green.
  • Use hair oil for fine hair (which is also great for light hair). Just from the mid-lengths to the ends, a serum for light hair will help to keep your strands moisturized. Schwarzkopf's BlondeMe Shine Enhancing Spray Conditioner is a great one.
  • Make sure there’s not copper in your water supply, which can turn hair green. Combat this with an acidic hair rinse (like an aspirin dissolved in water).
  • Instead of a towel, use a t-shirt to dry your hair after the shower. Friction with a towel can cause frizz and unnecessary dryness, but the soft cotton of a t-shirt will keep natural moisture in your hair.
