I don’t know if you’ve noticed this trend too, but more and more women are changing their hair color to blonde. This latest discovery of mine has inspired me to write a post for blonde-haired ladies. I’m going to give you a few tips on how to make your blonde hair better-looking and healthy. Interested? Great, then read on!
Summer is just round the corner, we can feel it, right? And as the summer is coming, we often feel like doing something cool with our hairdos. This season is going to be ruled by all shades of blonde. Indeed, you can choose among platinum hair, Scandinavian blonde, blonde highlights, dark blonde… just name it. The choice is yours. However, no matter the look you pick, be aware of the negative consequences that a color-treatment and bleaching have on the hair – they damage strands severely, especially the bleaching. For that reason, you should always pay special attention to your strands after exposing them to this procedure. To help you with that, I’m going to present to you a few useful and proven ideas on treating and conditioning blonde hair. This will help you prevent the hair from getting dry, dull, fine and damaged.
~ BEST BLONDE HAIR TREATMENTS ~
1. Moisture-replenishing treatment for blonde hair
It’s typical of dyed hair to become awfully dry, which applies mainly to bleached hair actually. For that reason, it’s advised to keep replenishing the strands with water by applying hydrating masks and conditioners after every shampooing. Glycerin, aloe, panthenol and natural oils are what you should be looking for in your moisturizing hair products. I’ve tested plenty of such products and if I were to recommend just one, I’d say Nanoil Algae Hair Mask. This hair product lasts surprisingly long and is formulated with really good ingredients. This mask will moisturize and repair your bleached hair.
2. Washing blonde hair properly
No matter if blonde, ginger or brown, if you want to keep your strands healthy and good-looking, you must mind the needs of the scalp too. To do so, for daily washing use only mild shampoos. It would be best, if they were free from SLS because this reduces the risk of scalp irritation. It’s also a very good idea to get yourself a shampoo for blonde hair. Why is it crucial? Because this type of cleanser helps your hair color stay true for longer. Additionally, I’d suggest washing your strands using the CWC method, meaning that before spreading a shampoo over the scalp, you should distribute some conditioner along the lengths first.
3. Hot styling tips for blonde hair
The general rule says that hair dislikes high temperatures, and blonde hair dislikes it twice as much. Hot styling tools cause huge damage to the hair by breaking the fiber bonds, leading to dryness and dullness. Luckily, it doesn’t mean that from now on you should treat a blow dryer as your enemy. You just need to bear in mind a few things:
- always apply a heat protectants prior to blow drying, ironing or curling.
- don’t set the highest temperature settings; instead dry your hair with either the lowest or medium temp. setting.
- keep a blow dryer in a distance from the head; 12 inches should do.
- let the hair ends dry on their own.
- don’t keep a hot air stream directed at one strand for too long.
4. Cosmetic oils for blonde hair
All hair types love hair oil treatment! I know that most of us don’t have the time for this treatment, but if you manage to devote an hour a week for it, your hair will look gorgeous: shiny, fuller-looking and damage-resistant. Whether you prefer hot or wet oil treatment doesn’t really matter as long as you keep applying plant oils to your hair on a regular basis. What matters though is the oil you use. Why so? Because some natural oils make hair darker. To avoid this bad surprise, I’m listing you the best oils for blonde hair:
- argan oil
- sweet almond oil
- macadamia oil
If you want to get all three oils from one shop, I’d suggest visiting [nanoil.us]. There you can find cold-pressed and unrefined cosmetic oils, which is something you want to apply to your hair, trust me on that.
I truly hope that with my pieces of advice taking care of your blonde hair will be a piece of cake. Naturally, if you know more blonde hair care tips, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
