Do Blondes Really Have More Fun?
Spring is in the air. Summer is on the horizon. Days are getting longer. Clothes are getting lighter. Pants are getting shorter. Hair is changing color, and before you know it, that summer, kissed-by-the-sun-glow has set in. Your hair is some variation of blonde and you are loving your gorgeous new locks... until they're a week old, have been slept on, are tangled, dry, and limp. But what happened?
Everything was going good until, you forgot to give your gorgeous new blonde locks the attention they oh so demand. Now you're out here looking like a dried up tumbleweed with this tangled mutt on the back of your head.
Blonde, like curly hair is gorgeous, and COMES WITH GREAT RESPONSIBILITY! Much like curly hair, the key to longevity and function revolves around hydration! The more hydrated your hair is, the better it will perform. Dying extensions any color puts strain on the hair, but more so when bleaching lighter colors. The natural oils are stripped so you want to ensure your locks are moisturized at all times. The key to keeping hair moisturized is finding a color safe, hydrating, and sulfate free conditioner. Once you've found your favorite combination of all three, condition or co-wash your hair atleast 1-2 times per week. Also apply a light, non-greasy oil to your locks between co-washes to add another level of hydration.
Below are a few products that work well and are color-safe and sulfate free:
Aveda's Color Conserve
Super Rich by Bumble & Bumble
Herbal Essences Color Me Happy
Now go ahead, hydrate, moisturize, rock that blonde hair, and strut like the Goddess you are, with tangle, and limp free-hair.
