Hair Products Every Blonde Should Use: Today I am sharing a few essential hair care products to keep your blonde soft, healthy, and brass-free.
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 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 one of the hair products every blonde should use is a cleansing conditioner rather than a shampoo. Using a sudsy shampoo product on your hair every day will lead to even more dry and damaged hair. Rather than using a normal shampoo every day, 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
My hair is very brass-toned, and as my hairdresser always says – my hair really wants to be red for some reason – but I don’t want it to be.
The MilkShake 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).
OUAI Leave-In Conditioner
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 OUAI Leave-In Conditioner. This product has been a miracle worker on my hair and has helped it feel softer and healthier.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light Serum
Having a great hair serum is 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 Moroccanoil Treatment Light 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 Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask deep conditioners, but lately, I have been using their Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask in particular.
I like to use a masque like this once a week to keep my hair soft and healthy. After using heat tools on my hair throughout the week, I find that treating my hair to a masque is a great way to add a surge of moisture back into my hair.
Olaplex 3 Hair Perfector
Olaplex 3 has been a game-changer for my hair, and it’s this product that actually made me want to post an updated version of my blonde hair care essentials post.
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.
