Special hair requires special shampoo and conditioner to keep it healthy, manageable and beautiful. UNITE Toning Blonda Shampoo and Conditioner is a moisturizing duo specially designed for your blonde color. Use the shampoo first to remove orange or yellow tints caused by harsh dyes or hard water and then use the conditioner to keep your hair silky smooth. UNITE’s products are free of sodium chloride and parabens to further protect chemically treated hair.
Leave-In Treatments for Damage Control
No matter how well you take care of your hair, pollution, hard water and other elements you can’t control will sometimes leave it feeling dry and brittle.
Pravana‘s Perfect Blonde Leave-In Treatment takes just five minutes to work and only needs to be used once per week to neutralize yellow tones in your blonde tresses. The added coconut oil and ultra-violet dye help to remove brassy tones while creating strength and adding shine to your hair. Pravana uses all-natural ingredients to create products that are free of chemicals known to be harmful to you, your hair and the environment.
Paul Mitchell has been creating innovative hair products for decades and the company hasn’t forgotten blondes. Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair is a leave-in treatment to help nourish your hair and repair dry, brittle ends. The treatment, which you comb through towel-dried hair before styling, was created specifically for natural blondes and people who bleach their hair. It replaces the hairs necessary oils to ensure it remains healthy and smooth.
Color treated hair products are a dime a dozen — metaphorically, anyway — but that doesn’t mean they are all made alike.
If you want to make sure your blonde hair stays as beautiful as the day you left the salon, you have to be sure you’re using the right products. Don’t be afraid to try different brands until you find the right ones to meet your needs.
To further protect your hair, always go to a professional salon for coloring and avoid using the harsh chemicals found in many at-home dyes. The right stylist will be highly knowledgeable in the treatments necessary to protect blonde hair.
