Maintaining your blonde hair
Keep your blonde hair in check ✔️
As we all know, taking care of coloured/dyed hair can be quite a task! Maintaining the tone and texture can be challenging, more so if you do not have the appropriate tools required or simply if you don not know where to start. Today we’re going to focus on taking care of your blonde hair, as it goes without saying any bleached hair needs extra care and attention if you want it to last for years.
When it comes to washing your hair, any normal shampoo will do, however if you would like to tone the hair to a cooler shade you can use purple shampoo. We would recommend the Bleach London Silver Shampoo, and to make sure that the colour is distributed evenly onto the hair, squeeze 2-3 drops into a sink filled with warm water, stir thoroughly to make sure it is mixed well. Then dip the hair in for 15-30 seconds ensuring the colour is dispensed throughout.
*Note that the longer you leave the shampoo in the hair, the more lilac it will turn.*
To avoid dryness and having your hair looking dehydrated, a good deep conditioning session is just what your hair needs. After washing, we would suggest using the Bleach London Reincarnation Mask this will nourish the hair, restore moisture and leave your hair feeling soft and smooth. We would also recommend leaving it in for about an 30 minutes or up to an hour, comb through with a wide tooth comb (or afro comb) and wash off and then leave to air dry.
After thoroughly washing the conditioner out, comb through the hair while wet with a wide tooth comb or afro comb to get rid of any tangles, then place/hang the hair in a cool area and let it air dry. The reason why we recommend air drying instead of blow drying is because you should try to use as less heat as possible on the hair, this ensures that the moisture is still locked in, retaining natural movement and flow in the hair - after all no one wants lifeless stiff hair🙅🏽. Air drying also reduces puffiness of hair that you usually get from blow drying hair.
After drying, the hair may need a bit of flattening, which is where the flat iron comes in; but before flat ironing your hair, we would recommend applying Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair Triple Rescue which helps protect your hair from any damage caused by heat styling tools as well as preserving colour whilst enhancing shine. You can then straighten your hair, then afterwards massage through some Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine (not too much as we don’t want it greasy) into the hair to keep it moisturised, soft and luscious. And just like that, your blonde is now revived and as good as new!
