I hope the following tips for looking after your blonde hair will help. But as always please email the salon or give us a call if you would like to discuss products or guidance.
The perfect shampoo and conditioner: You should be gentle and wash less often. When choosing a shampoo and conditioner, look to formulas designed specifically for maintaining and protecting your colour. Avoid anything harsh or stripping. To ensure that you maintain your tone and your colour doesn’t turn brassy, look to purple or silver shampoos that aren’t overly clarifying.
Keep your hair hydrated: If you’re not a natural blonde you need to nourish it daily with a leave in-treatment.
Protecting your hair from heat: Hot tools aren’t good for any colour hair, but they’re especially threatening to blonde hair. Its important to minimise damage. Depending on your hair type and preference, try a heat protecting cream, spray, or balm which will help to combat damage and fading.
Watch out for sunlight: Hats and scarves are a great defence, if your hair is going to be in direct sunlight it’s very important that you prepare it using a heat protection product with UV Filters.
Keeping it safe when swimming: Wearing a swimming cap is the ultimate defence, but if that’s not your thing, you’ve got to fight the chemicals before and after you’re swim. Apply conditioner before entering the pool or ocean to create a barrier between your hair and the salt water or chlorine. After you come out of the water, rinse your hair as soon as possible to get rid of residue.
Making your blonde colour last: Again, the best way to keep your hair vibrant is minimal washing with colour-appropriate shampoo and conditioner. Another way to conserve your shade is to refresh with a gloss treatment at our salon in between colouring services.
Dealing with breakage: The most important thing you can do is make sure you speak to us ASAP as we can help with retouching without over-processing your colour. The key is to get your colouring done on time, but not too frequently, because dyeing it too often will cause stress, damage, and excessive dryness.
