How To Care For Your Hair After Going Blonde

The thing that nobody tells you about going blonde is the damage it can cause your hair. While you finally achieved the perfect color, your hair can become dry and brittle in the process. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following tips to help nurse your hair back to health after bleaching.

Invest in a Good Shampoo

You probably know that it’s important to invest in a color-protecting shampoo to maintain your hair color, which holds true for blondes as well. At unDONE, we recommend Davines Heart of Glass Silkening Shampoo or MINU Shampoo. These shampoos cleanse and clarify blonde tones while providing nourishment to natural and cosmetically treated hair. Keep in mind that you should only wash your hair 2-3 times a week with cool water to maintain your natural oils.

Don’t Brush Wet Hair

Whether or not you have color-treated hair, brushing when wet can lead to major breakage. This is especially true for those who’ve gone blonde because it takes time for your hair to recover from the bleaching process and is more dry and brittle. Instead, it’s best to add a detangling spray and allow your hair to dry before brushing it out.

Avoid Heat Styling

After bleaching your hair, you should do your very best to avoid heat styling. In order to lift your hair color to achieve a blonde shade, your hair cuticle is stripped. When this happens, it can be hard for your hair to hold onto essential nutrients and oils that your scalp produces, leaving it dry and brittle. Excessive heat styling on top of the chemical process can really damage your hair and dull its shine.

Deep Condition Weekly

Deep conditioning hair masks like Davines NOUNOU Hair Mask have essential oils and ingredients that help to repair and speed up hair recovery time. In fact, this hair mask is great for restoring hydration and shine. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend using this deep conditioning hair mask at least once a week for best results.

Make Your Color Last

Over time, your blonde tresses may become brassy. Unless it’s the look you’re going for, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE recommend investing in a purple shampoo like Davines Alchemic Shampoo Silver. This specially formulated shampoo helps to intensify and illuminate natural and colored blonde shades by combating brassy tones and leaving your locks the cool tone you paid big bucks to achieve.

Keep in mind, you shouldn’t use just any purple shampoo as some brands can be too drying or pigmented for your tone. That’s why it’s best to consult with your Boise hair salon stylist at unDONE to ensure you choose the right shampoo for your hair color.

To maintain a beautiful blonde shade, we recommend using purple shampoo at least once a week. If you find that your hair is yellowing or becoming super brassy, increase your usage to 2 times a week. You should also decrease how much you use this shampoo if your hair becomes too ashy.
