Blonde hair can be demanding and needs to be treated with loving care

Blonde hair, whether it is a gift of nature or the result of color treatments, needs more care than darker shades of hair. Naturally blonde women must frequently also deal with much finer hair than brunettes. In case you have colored your hair blonde, it can easily happen that the chemical treatments leave your hair limp and dull.

 

Keeping Bleached Hair Healthy: Blonde Goes Well with Silver and Gold

 

You can maintain the beauty of your hair color by using products which will not weigh down your hair yet still bring luscious shine to it. Light-textured products with plenty of moisturizing nutrients and transparent ingredients keep greyish dullness from stealing the light out of your blonde hair. Special conditioning care products for blonde hair also contain active ingredients which absorb the calcium and magnesium in tap water. This will leave your hair naturally shiny. You may want to go one step farther: adding gold and silver pigments to your hair intensifies the color and produces appealing light reflections.

Bleached Hair Care Tips: Bringing out the Best in Your Favorite Hair Color

  • Tip 1:

    Don’t go out without it in the summer months, not without UV protection that is! Light hair contains less melanin than darker hair shades, meaning that the rays of the sun will penetrate your hair much more easily. It is therefore essential to take the necessary steps to protect your bleached hair. As a matter of fact, hair needs more protection the lighter it is.

  • Tip 2:

    Does your platinum blonde hair show a yellow tinge? Shampoos for grey or white hair can remedy this by neutralizing the unwanted yellow tones with magenta pigments. Natural allies in the fight against the yellow tinge are chamomile and lavender. Both are well-loved stars among the hair care ingredients.

  • Tip 3:

    Have you discovered a green tinge in your blonde hair? Copper in your tap water may be the culprit. Acidic rinses are the remedy of choice. The rinse may consist of 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a glass of water or alternatively, of an aspirin dissolved in water.

  • Tip 4:

    Weekly cures are an essential part of caring for bleached hair. Different from conditioners, these hair cures provide active ingredients which deeply penetrate the hair. Every bleaching results in damages to the dandruff layer. The regular application of hair cures will alleviate those damages.
