Blondes are thought to have more personality, but let’s face it: maintaining blonde hair can be a major hassle. The sun, water, and air pollution can all cause brassiness in your hair. Excessive styling and processing, on the other hand, can cause your hair to become dry and brittle, as well as brassy. Continue reading if you’re in need of a pick-me-up. 

Maintain proper hydration

Many of us subject our hair to a variety of damaging treatments in order to achieve the perfect shade of blonde. The intensive process of bleaching or removing a dark tint from our strands may deplete our hair of the numerous nutrients and oils that are locked inside the cuticle, which is located on the surface of our hair. 

As a result, our hair has become brittle, dry, and stretched out. Repairing processed hair necessitates a great deal of tender loving care. We recommend investing in a high-quality leave-in conditioner and/or deep repair mask to help revive dry, brittle hair. Both of these products are available online. 

Hair masks and intensive treatments are excellent ways to replenish the moisture that was lost during the coloring process. Even though it is impossible to undo the damage done in a single process, coloring your hair should always be done in conjunction with a deep conditioning treatment. This is the most effective way to avoid breakage. 

Make sure to keep it away from the heat 

Put some distance between yourself and the hair dryer, will you? This piece of advice will be brief and straight to the point. The higher the quality of the hair, the less heat is required to style it! Now that you’re aware of it, you’ll need to remove the cuticle from your hair to achieve a lighter blonde shade.

 After the cuticle is removed, your hair will have difficulty retaining the nutrients produced by your scalp, causing it to become dry and brittle. When you use too much heat to style your hair, you can cause serious damage and cause it to lose some of its luster. Giving your hair a break from being styled with heat every now and then by arranging it in a pretty bun, updo, or braid instead of using heat-styling tools is always a good idea. 

Keep it out of direct sunlight

We are well aware of the tragic nature of this situation, because who doesn’t love the sun? Unfortunately, prolonged sun exposure can harm not only your skin but also your blonde hair. Your hair may become dry and appear orangey-brassy as a result of the damaging effects of UV rays. If you plan to spend the day outside having fun, don’t forget to bring a cute hat to protect your skin and hair from the sun’s harmful rays. If you dislike wearing hats, you should consider using a heat and UV protectant instead. 

Wash your hair with purple shampoo to extend the life of your color 

Given enough time, even natural forces can cause your once-fresh locks to appear aged. Let’s face it: unless this is the look you’re going for, it’s difficult to adore your locks when the tone is completely off. It’s difficult to adore your locks when the tone is completely off, unless you’re going for this look. 

Invest in a shampoo with violet undertones to keep your color vibrant. This specially formulated shampoo is an excellent way to remove these brassy undertones from your hair, leaving it with the ashy tone you worked so hard to achieve in the first place. 

Many people learned in school that the color purple is directly opposite the color yellow on the color wheel. This information is widely available. This implies that when the purple pigments in the shampoo are absorbed by your hair follicles, any warm yellow tones in your hair are covered and neutralized. When shampoo is applied to clean hair, this happens. You should also think about using hair care products designed specifically for blonde hair. 

To keep your blonde hair shiny, we recommend using purple shampoo at least once a week and alternating between different shampoos on different days of the week. If you notice that your hair quickly turns brassy or yellow, you may want to try increasing the amount you use. If you find that using this shampoo causes your hair to look ashy, reduce the frequency with which you use it. 

The amount of toning provided by your shampoo can also be influenced by how long you leave it in your hair before rinsing it out. If your hair is moderately brassy, leaving the shampoo in for three minutes should suffice; however, if your hair is significantly brassy, leaving the shampoo in for five minutes should be attempted. 

When working with oils, exercise extreme caution

While it is widely assumed that using oils is the best way to nourish your hair, this is not applicable to people with blonde hair. When applied incorrectly to the hair, oils have the potential to give the appearance of weighed down and oily hair. Working with oils with a yellowish tint should be done with caution because these oils have a tendency to cling to hair and discolor it, which is especially true if you have white or platinum blonde hair. 

Try using dry shampoo 

For a long time, dry shampoo has been our faithful companion. There are currently dry shampoo formulations available to accommodate all hair types and colors. Some dry shampoos are light in color (ideal for blondes! ), while others are dark. Always use the appropriate shade of dry shampoo to successfully avoid having greasy hair on the third day.
