Blondes may have more fun, but they also have to work much harder to keep their hair in great condition.
Marilyn Monroe didn’t let that on, did she?
The good news is that with the right products, that hard work becomes a little more effortless. Or at least it looks it. From the must-have shampoo to the best beauty tool, here are the five products you need stocked in your cupboard for beautiful blonde hair, always.
1. Purple shampoo
A purple shampoo is a blonde’s best friend. Purple sits opposite yellow on the colour wheel, so is perfect for brightening your bottle blonde colour. Kevin Murphy’s Blonde Angel Wash, (https://www.ozhairandbeauty.com/products/kevin-murphy-blonde-angel-wash-250ml) will refresh your blonde tones between hairdresser visits, with optical brighteners rescuing dull and brassy colour. If you find other purple shampoos leave your hair feeling straw-like, you’ll find this one much more hydrating. It’s also great for detangling and a little goes a long way.
2. Argan Oil
No-one really likes to add an extra step to their hair washing routine, but when it’s a product that really makes a difference, it’s worth it. Using an argan oil treatment on your hair before you shampoo (yes, you read that right) can help prevent your colour from being stripped by your shampoo and conditioner. The muk Spa Argan Oil treatment,(https://www.ozhairandbeauty.com/products/muk-spa-argan-oil-treatment-100ml) is super light and absorbent – simply apply to your ends and gently brush through prior to washing.
Behind every great blonde is most likely a bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3, $32.80. A game-changer for those who dye their hair blonde, it minimises the damage done to hair from traditional bleaching. An intense treatment, it relinks the broken bonds in the hair and makes hair look brighter and feel stronger. Bye bye, breakage. It can be used in salon and also as a treatment at home. https://www.ozhairandbeauty.com/products/olaplex-hair-perfector-no-3-100ml/?variant=27735643977
4. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is the hair equivalent of a superhero. Use it to soak up grease, hide hair-that-probably-needed-a-wash-yesterday and even boost volume. Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear Blonde Dry Shampoo, will refresh hair between washes and leave your hair feeling fresh and clean. The super-fine tinted mist means no-one will detect a thing, even in the creamiest and whitest of blonde hair.
5. A good hair brushThe last thing your dyed blonde hair needs is a brush that’s going to damage and tear your hair even further. The Wet Brush, was specifically designed to detangle AND be gentle to your hair. The IntelliFlex bristles detangle without tugging or pulling your hair, and it can even be used for on extensions or wigs. Oh, and of course it’s great for use on dry hair too.
