Do blondes really have more fun? I believe so, although I am slightly biased on the matter I love blonde hair, I mean I have tried my plethora of shades and styles, but usually revert back to blonde in order to satisfy my inner goddess. The trouble with blonde hair though is it tends to act out more. Due to bleaching and highlighting, hair becomes dry, damaged and dull and requires a lot more care to look as sleek and shiny as our brunette counterparts.
Here are some tips and tricks to caring for your blonde:
Blonde hair is more fragile then darker shades and tends to look more dull and frizzy. Ensure you are using a good colour shampoo every day to not only preserve your colour but also ensure hair looks shiny and vibrant. I really love Kerastase reflection bain chroma riche shampoo.
To avoid dry, brittle hair, use a deep conditioning mask at least once a week, twice if you dye your whole head blonde. I have been using the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask all summer and LOVE what it’s done for my blonde.
Brassiness has to be my worst enemy. Luckily I have learned ways to avoid it, like using a purple shampoo every week. I really like the one from Aveda, a little pricey but smells AMAZING and works wonders on eliminating brassy blonde.
To add vibrancy and luminosity back to your blonde, use a shine serum/oil such as Kerastase elixir ultime. Infused with a bunch of good-for-your-hair ingredients, your blonde will look ultra shiny and healthy without weighing it down and looking greasy.
Most of all, don’t wait too long between salon visits! Blonde hair is high maintenance, and although worth every effort, needs to be done on a regular basis to avoid the unintentional ombre effect.
