When it comes to colouring your hair, blonde may be a popular choice, but it can require a level of maintenance that may make you feel disheartened over time. It doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom though, you can still achieve beautiful, vibrant coloured hair affordably and at home.
How to refresh blonde hair
You may have heard of toning shampoo and conditioner, or use it already, but it isn’t always a fool-proof solution. Purple toning drops have entered the blonde hair care niche recently and while these perform in much the same way as traditional toning products, they offer a level of customisation that other products simply don’t afford. This can be worthwhile for different tones of blonde and for those who find their current purple shampoo lacking.
Another plus point is that you can add purple toning drops to any shampoo or conditioner in your bathroom cabinet. This means that if you aren’t happy with how the current formulas perform, you can go back to using the hair care products that you really love and won’t need to sacrifice any of the features that help you to maintain your hair. If you aren’t happy with your hair colour when leaving the salon or after dying at home for any reason, you can also use purple toning drops to correct bad colour.
2 more ways to maintain beautiful blonde hair
Here are two top tips to stop blonde hair from looking dry and dull:
1. Avoid rinsing your hair with hot water
Blonde hair tones are more prone to fading than other hair colours and a great way to ensure yours stays vibrant is to minimise heat when washing. Hot water penetrates the hair shaft and opens up the cuticle – and this can cause colour to fade faster. Cold water works to seal the hair, so this will better preserve tone and shine over time.
2. Be sure to maximise moisture
Blonde hair often has to undergo a lot of processing to achieve the right colour and this can cause an untold amount of stress and damage that needs to be addressed to ensure healthy-looking and feeling hair. The best way to do this is to add moisture masks and serums to your hair care routine.
