How I Keep My Blonde Hair Healthy
I’ve had many hair colours and styles throughout the years, I’ve been blonde, dark, balayage, short, long and everything in-between. There comes a point where you are ready to stick to a colour and cut that suits you and brings out your best features. I went balayage for quite a few years after being very blonde before. I’ve now gone back to full on blonde and now I couldn’t imagine going back, it’s quite addictive!
Now getting the right level of blonde is important depending on how blonde you want to be and the tone of blonde you want. There are so many to choose from, like golden blonde, icy blonde, honey blonde, the list is endless. Take in consideration your skin tone as well when choosing a blonde because you don’t want to appear washed out or sallow. Pinterest is a great way to see what you gravitate towards. I opt for a creamy milky blonde with a root tap which creates a bit of dimension so you are not left with one harsh block colour, it always makes root regrowth less harsh so you can get away with spreading out your trips to the salon.
If you have never been blonde before and have darker hair remember it’s a process that takes time and maintenance to achieve the end result. You can’t expect to go bright blonde in one sitting without damaging your hair. Find a good stylist who understands what you are wanting to achieve and can work with you to get the best results.
Once you are the blonde of your dreams maintaining the health and condition of your hair optimal. You need to use the right products that nourish and protect your hair. Treatments are essential in and out of the salon. To keep your blonde bright and not brassy which can happen in-between salon visits, be sure to use a purple shampoo once or twice a week! A pre shampoo treatment such as Olaplex makes a huge difference to damaged hair, use once or twice a week for super supple locks.
Getting a regular haircut helps to keep blonde looking fresh by getting rid of split ends and keeps it looking tidy. Always use a heat protector when blow drying hair, Kerastase Thermique Resistence is my favourite!
So go forth, be blonde but be willing to put in the time and effort to keeping it healthy.
