Blondes may have more fun – but they also need special treatment when it comes to their hair. Whether it is a gift of nature or the result of colour treatments you can maintain the beauty of your hair colour by following our top tips for blonde hair.
Don’t go out without UV protection, especially over the summer months! Light hair contains less melanin than darker hair shades. The rays of the sun will therefore much easier penetrate your hair causing it to become dry and brittle.
Does your platinum blonde hair show a yellow tinge? Shampoos for grey or white hair can remedy this by neutralising 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.
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.
Bleached hair needs a weekly treatment. Different from conditioners, these hair treatments provide active ingredients which deeply penetrate the hair. Every bleaching results in damages to the dandruff layer but the regular application of hair treatments will alleviate those damages.
