Who doesn’t love gorgeous blonde hair? Celebrities like Blake Lively, Candice Swanepoel and Reese Witherspoon have been garnering the envy of us with their signature blonde styles for years.
Ask any hair stylist and they’ll tell you that blonde hair requires a lot of maintenance. If you’re blonde, here are a few of my top tips on how to maintain stunning and healthy blonde hair.
Brassiness be gone
The best thing to happen to blonde hair is a violet shampoo and conditioning treatment.
My favorite is the Loma Violet line. Violet shampoo color corrects the hue of light hair, preventing it from getting brassy between color appointments. The Loma Violet shampoo can be used until you achieve your desired color, no matter how many washes that might take. It’s perfect for improving the condition of your hair and maintaining your color.
Keep it hydrated
If you’re not a natural blonde, then your hair might need a little more attention. Your hair may be dehydrated and damaged due to dying it and it might be in need of some products to nourish it back to life. I’d recommend the Davines Alchemic Conditioner, which not only enhances your color, but it leaves your locks feeling healthy and soft. It’s a beautiful conditioner, that’s needed to maintain healthy, silky and hydrated hair.
Protect it from the heat
To maintain your blonde hair and to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy, the best thing you can do is protect it from the heat. Heat can be damaging to all hair, but especially to those with blonde hair. It’s best to use as little heat as possible on your locks, however, if you must, there are a few products you can use to cause as little damage as possible. I’d recommend the Loma Nourishing Hair Treatment which is not only a great product for heat protection, but it’s also amazing for taming frizz.
Fight the damage
Constant dying may take a toll on your hair. However, one way to combat this is to ensure you get your hair dyed when you need it and not too frequently. Over-dying your hair can cause even more damage such as excessive dryness and breakage. To fight the damage and to help keep your hair under control, we’d recommend Loma Fortifying Repairative Tonic. This tonic has a range of different benefits that can help maintain your hair. It’s well known for its strengthening and repairing abilities and it also protects your hair against color fade.
Avoid direct sunlight
When sitting outside in the glorious sunshine, your hair needs protecting just as much as your skin. Those with blonde hair are more prone to damage from the UV rays, therefore it’s best to protect your blonde hair as much as possible. A few ways you can do this is by avoiding direct contact with the sun by using hats or scarves to protect your hair, or you can even try the Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Hair Oil. This product not only protects the hair from heat, but it’s also a UV protectant for those who want to enjoy the sun to the fullest!
