Whether you recently went platinum, golden or honey, it takes some work to get and maintain healthy, vibrant blonde (or blond to some of you ☺️) hair. Your best bet when going blonde is to gradually work your way into a lighter color over time so that you can avoid damage. Once your desired hair color has been achieved, make sure to keep that light, bright and beautiful look with the proper products and couple of simple tips that will result in picture perfect hair at all times!
Choose the right shampoo and conditioner
We recommend SUNSET BLVD Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner: where all the sparkly lights shine just that much brighter. By eliminating brassy tones, SUNSET BLVD Shampoo and Conditioner make blondes extra bright and greys fantastically silver. Think of it like Photoshop for your hair.
Keep hair hydrated
If you’re not a natural blonde, it generally means your hair is damaged and extremely thirsty. Nourish it daily with a leave in-treatment.
Protect it from heat
Hot tools are especially threatening to color-treated blonde hair. Minimize the damage from a blow dry or flat iron with heat-protection.
Shield hair from the sun
Hats and scarves are the best immediate defense, but if hair is going to be in direct sunlight, use products with UV filters.
Keep it safe from water
Take a dip with confidence. Apply your favorite conditioner before entering a pool or the ocean to create a barrier between your hair and the salt water or chlorine. After you come out of the water, rinse your hair as soon as possible to get rid of residue.
Whether you are hoping to become a platinum blonde, rooty blonde, proper blonde and more, there is hope! With the right products and some easy to follow tips, you can achieve that long-lasting blonde you've always dreamed of!
