Let’s be honest ladies – blonde hair requires a lot of maintenance. As a blonde myself, I know the time and effort that goes into taking care of the colour and health of my lightened hair. It’s no secret that blonde hair always has an element of damage to it. The fact is, to achieve that perfect blonde colour we want – you need to use bleach, yikes! And bleach is pretty much the worlds greatest enemy to healthy, split end free hair.
Hair Products Every Blonde Should Use (asap)
Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner
Blonde hair tends to be dry, so using a drying shampoo product on your hair every day will lead to even more dry and damaged hair. Rather than using a normal shampoo everyday, invest in a suds-free shampoo like the Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner. I simply use a few pumps (about 3) and distribute the product all the way through my hair – from root to tip – and massage it throughout my hair/scalp You really want to take your time with this product in order for it to really clean your hair, otherwise, it can leave your hair feeling heavy.
Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo
About 1-2 times a week (depending on how often I exercise, how many events I attend, etc) I will use the Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo just to remove any build up from the Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner. Since the Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner is suds-free, it can cause a bit of build up after using it for a few days. To ensure my hair doesn’t look and feel oily, I’ll use the Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo just to remove any build up. This shampoo is very drying though and I do not recommend it for daily use.
MilkShake Silver Shampoo
To keep my hair 100% brass free, I use MilkShake Silver shampoo. The way to fix brassy hair is by using a great purple shampoo, and finally I found one that really works. My hair is very brass toned, and as my hair dresser always says – my hair really wants to be red for some reason – but I don’t want it to be. TheMilkShake Silver shampoo has been a game changer for me, and has really been able to remove brassy tones from my hair even at the worst of times – even when traveling and subjecting my hair to different types of water and conditions (blondes, you know what I’m talking about).
Matrix Total Results Color Care Miracle 12 Treat Lotion Spray
After showering, the first product I use in my hair is some sort of leave in conditioning spray. For about a year now, I’ve used Matrix Total Results Color Care Miracle 12 Treat Lotion Spray. This product has been a miracle worker on my hair, and has helped it feel softer and healthier.
Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Serum
Having a great hair serum is a 100% essential for blonde hair. Blonde hair is prone to being dry which is why a serum is SO important. After you shower, or use heat tools, you’ll want to apply a small amount of serum to your hair to ensure it looks and feels soft and smooth. When you apply the serum, apply it only from about the ear level down, avoiding the roots completely. When you apply the serum on or near to your roots it’ll often result in making your hair appear very oily. The serum I use is the Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Serum.
Macadamia Natural Oil Weightless Moisture Masque
A deep conditioner is a vital part of any blonde’s hair care routine. I have always used Macadamia Natural Oil deep conditioners, but lately I have been using their Macadamia Natural Oil’s Weightless Moisture Masque in particular. Since my hair is on the fine-side, masques can really weigh down my hair and that’s why I decided to try Macadamia Natural Oil’s Weightless Moisture Masque. This masque is formulated for fine to baby fine hair and helps nourish your hair without leaving it feeling heavy.
Olaplex 3 has been a game changer for my hair, and it’s this product that actually made me want to post a updated version of my blonde hair care essentials post. Olaplex 3 is a product I’ve been using for the last few months and has really helped improve the look and feel of my hair, and you can actually read my full Olaplex 3 review here. Olaplex 3 claims to be a hair reparative rather than a deep conditioning treatment as it doesn’t actually add moisture, it acts as a binding agent and heals your hair follicles.
