How to look after your blonde locks

Unlocking the Secrets to Gorgeous Blonde Hair
Blonde hair is not just a colour; it's a lifestyle. Whether you're rocking platinum locks or subtle highlights, maintaining your blonde hair's vibrancy and health requires a little extra TLC. Here's how to keep your golden mane looking its best, using tried-and-true tips and tricks:
Invest in Quality Sulphate-Free Products
First things first, let's talk about shampoo and conditioner. Say goodbye to sulphates and hello to gentle, nourishing formulas that won't strip your hair of its natural oils. Opt for sulphate-free products to protect your blonde locks from dryness and damage, while also helping your toner last longer.
Protect Your Hair from Heat Styling
Before reaching for your hair dryer or straightener, don't forget to apply a heat protectant. Shield your strands from heat damage and breakage, or consider heatless styling methods for a gentle alternative that still delivers stunning results.
Combat Chlorine and Saltwater Damage
Summer days by the pool or beach are blissful, but they can wreak havoc on your blonde locks. Rinse your hair with fresh water before swimming to minimise chlorine and saltwater damage, and limit exposure to these elements to keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant.
Be Mindful of Washing Frequency
Over-washing can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and dullness. Aim to wash your hair 2-3 times a week, and use a sulphate-free shampoo to maintain your blonde's brilliance while preserving its natural oils.
Use Gentle Detangling Tools
When it comes to detangling wet hair, opt for a wide-tooth comb or a wet brush to minimise breakage and damage. Be gentle, especially when your hair is wet and most vulnerable to breakage. We also recommend brushing from the ends first.
Regular Trims for Healthy Ends
Keep split ends at bay with regular trims every 8-12 weeks. Removing damaged ends not only keeps your hair looking fresh and healthy but also prevents breakage and split ends from travelling up the hair shaft.
Protect Against UV Damage
Just like your skin, your blonde hair needs protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. Wear a hat or use a UV protection spray to shield your locks and prevent brassiness and colour fading.
Incorporate Hair Masks and Treatments
Blonde hair requires extra nourishment and care, so consider incorporating a hair mask or treatment specifically designed for blondes into your routine. Strengthen and nourish your locks to keep them looking healthy and vibrant.
Avoid At-Home Bleaching
While it may be tempting to experiment with at-home bleach or harsh chemicals, it's best to leave major colour changes to the professionals. Opt for salon treatments to maintain your blonde colour safely and effectively.
Mindful Styling Practices
Be gentle when styling your hair, as tight hairstyles and excessive pulling can cause breakage and damage. Embrace loose, carefree styles, and give your hair a break from tight ponytails and braids.
Invest in Silk Pillowcases
Swap out your cotton pillowcase for a silk or satin one to reduce friction and prevent breakage while you sleep. Wake up to smoother, healthier hair every morning.
Maximise Hydration with Leave-In Treatments
Keep your blonde locks hydrated and smooth with leave-in conditioners or oil treatments. Lock in moisture and combat frizz for hair that's soft, shiny, and manageable.
Toning Treatments for Brassiness
Maintain your desired shade of blonde and counteract any brassiness with regular toning treatments at the salon. Our gloss treatment colours are specially designed to tone and treat the hair, leaving it looking vibrant and refreshed.
