They say blondes have more fun, but taking care of your hair sometimes not so much! Dyeing your hair can leave it looking dry, stretchy, and brittle. The up-keep takes constant care to avoid the color (and your dollars) from going down the drain.
Whether you were born with blonde locks or if like me you decided to lighten up your hair , these 7 tips will help you keep your hair as gorgeous as possible.
- Purple Shampoo– utilizing a color-safe shampoo is key for prolonging the life of your color and keeps your hair color from turning brassy. My favorite is Color Balance Purple Shampoo by Joico
- Wash Your Hair Less – Try to extend your time between shampoos by finding a dry shampoo that works for you. I personally like Living Proof Dry Shampoo. Spray the dry shampoo onto oily roots, and brush through or use your fingers.
- Hair Mask– Dyeing your hair can make it feel dry, add a hair mask to your weekly routine. I use The Quai Hair Mask , I usually put it on before a work out. If you are on a budget here is a DIY Hair Repair Coconut Mask. Mix 1 tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil and 1 tbsp. Organic Raw Honey in bowl. Apply it generously on your roots, leave it on for 30-40 min, and rinse off with warm water.
- Limit The Hot Tools– Let your hair air dry once in a while, the less heat styling, the better. Spray a texture spray if you have wavy hair, I have The Quai Wave Spray on heavy rotation. You can always try a bun, braid, or ponytail.
- Leave-In Conditioner– it hydrates your hair and gives your hair the extra moisture it needs.
- Trim Your Hair- It’s recommended you trim your hair every six to eight weeks. Blonde strands tend to be finer, trim those split ends properly to prevent it from traveling up to the root.
- Bonus- when traveling use a UV protecting spray and hat to protect your hair from the sun!
