Being a blonde is more than just a hair colour, it’s a lifestyle, requiring work and dedication. Why, we hear you ask, do we put ourselves through this regime? Because it’s SO worth it. There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of leaving the salon with a fresher and brighter blonde. To keep your hair colour salon fresh in between appointments, arm yourselves with the below products, and thank us later.
The ULTIMATE brass buster, this colour depositing mask by Redken packs a potent punch. The ultra-concentrated formula gets to work on yellow tones in as little as 5 minutes, leaving you with a cooler, brighter blonde, whilst the protein and amino acids work together to deliver an instant moisture hit to dry and porous hair.
The hunt for the perfect purple shampoo is never-ending. It needs to be nourishing, whilst effective at banishing the brass, without drying the hair or leaving the dreaded ‘purple hue’ – we’ve all been there. Kristen Ess The One Purple Shampoo has been specifically formulated without sulphates – meaning for those of you who like your blonde really ashy, this hero product is gentle enough to use every day, whilst the Zip-Up Technology™ is designed to ‘zip up’ split ends and smooth damaged tresses.
Hyaluronic Acid had its moment last year and the whole world is seemingly slathering our faces with the super ingredient on a daily basis in a bid for hydrated and ‘glass’ like skin – so why should our precious locks be left out? Infused with edelweiss flower alongside the superhero ingredient, this shampoo hydrates the hair from root to tip, whilst illuminating blonde tones and removing dulling agents. The result? Soft, silky and hydrated hair that could blind a passer-by with its shine. It’s a yes from us.
If your blonde is looking a little lacklustre, the main culprit is probably a build-up of products that are working hard to dull your shine. This caffeine infused, pre-shampoo treatment clarifies the scalp whilst combatting oil and product build up, leaving you with super clean, bouncy and thick hair – it also leaves the hair smelling amazing. Win win.
Suffering from dullness, or constantly striving to get that Hollywood ‘glass’ hair look? If you find yourself looking enviously at brunette hair colours, and wondering how they get that killer shine, it’s because naturally, dark colours reflect the light, whilst lighter colours (i.e, blonde tones) absorb it. No need to worry, though – the Amika Glass Action Universal Elixir is hair to save the day and get your locks gleaming. Simply work the versatile oil into wet hair before styling, or use as a finishing touch, for a final look that Kate Middleton would be proud of.
If you’re a blonde and you don’t know about Olaplex, are you sure you’re a real blonde? This highly concentrated, leave-in smoothing cream has the ability to strengthen, moisturise and eliminate frizz for up to 72 hours – all you need to do is smooth through mid-lengths to end and style as normal for super sleek and smooth hair.
When Kim K’s long time hair stylist and bff Jen Atkin comes out with a hair care range, you buy that hair care range. This lightweight heat protection spray is paraben and SLS free, and helps your hair stay healthy, shiny and manageable throughout heat styling. The result is frizz free, sleek hair – who doesn’t want that?
