We Asked 5 Blondes What Their Favourite Hair Products Are
Whether you’re a natural or bottle blonde, you know your day to day life can be tough on your hair. Sun, pollution and heat all take their toll and leave your hair looking less than its best. So how can you keep your blonde hair looking salon fresh? We asked 5 blondes to share their top tips.
Why blonde haircare is so important?
With so many colour related concerns, it’s important for blondes to take special care of their hair to keep it healthy, hydrated and looking its best.
How you can manage your hair in between salon visits?
No matter what your blonde hair complaints are, the right care can keep your hair looking salon-fresh between visits. Some of the top concerns reported by the blondes we asked are easy to solve at home with the right treatment.
Hair breakage has many causes, including heat styling, brushing, stress and colouring itself. Hair breakage can leave your hair frizzy and straw-like, particularly towards the ends, making it hard to style and meaning you may need to chop more off to achieve a sleek, healthy look. If hair breakage is a concern for you, manage it with:
• Heat protection like the ghd Bodyguard - Heat Protect Spray 120ml
• A smoothing treatment such as ELEVEN Australia Miracle Spray Hair Treatment 125ml
• Gentle detangling using Tangle Teezer The Wet Detangler Hairbrush Millennial Pink
Lack of hydration
What you put in your body is just as important for your beauty routine as what you put on it, and this is true for your hair as well. If you’ve been dehydrated, you might notice your hair loses its shine, so combat this with:
• A hydrating shampoo like Evo The Therapist Hydrating Shampoo 300ml
• Hydrating treatments including Joico K-Pak Intense Hydrator 1000ml
• For a quick pick me up, choose the Vitafive CPR Serious Blonde Instant Toner 180ml
• If you’re looking for a hard-working mask, opt for the Kérastase Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Mask 200ml
To find out more, we asked 5 blondes what their favourite hair care products are to keep their tresses looking their best.
