When it comes to dyed hair, getting the right color is just the first step. Next is to maintain it and make the color last as long as possible. For blonde hair especially, you need to keep it from turning brassy or orange, especially when you're going for platinum. Below, how to keep your blonde tresses looking its best:
1. Use purple shampoo.
Purple shampoo is one of the best products to use on blonde or light-colored hair. Given the cool tint, it helps neutralize your hair color to keep it blonde. Don't forget it should be sulfate-free!
2. Stay away from the sun.
Overexposure from the sun doesn’t only dry out your tresses; it can also cause discoloration. Put on that cute oversized woven hat and apply hair SPF for some much-needed sun (and color) protection.
3. Minimize use of heat styling tools.
Your trusty hair-dryer or curling iron can also change the color of your blonde locks by damaging them. If you must use heat styling tools, avoid setting them to the highest heat level, and use a heat-protecting product to minimize hair damage.
4. Rinse your hair with fresh water before swimming.
Any encounter with harsh chemicals like chlorine will significantly affect the integrity of any hair color. If you're going to swim, rinse your hair with fresh water first. This will make sure that your hair won't soak up the chemicals found in the swimming pool.
5. Filter out impurities in the shower.
Install a water purifier in your shower to level up your haircare needs. This filters out the mineral deposits in regular tap water which can potentially discolor or cause your blonde dye to fade.
6. Use a conditioner that cares for colored hair.
Light-colored hair tends to look dry and lifeless, so keep it moisturized and healthy.
