This is The Secret To Healthy Blonde Hair

Naturally blonde hair is incredibly rare, so if you're one of the fair few who can boast this colour, remember that you're one in 2% of the population who does. Natural or not, read on to find out more about looking after blonde hair.

Natural Blondes

Naturally blonde hair tends to be quite fine, which means your hair is most likely more susceptible to breakage and damage. Keep up your hair's strength by applying a weekly hair mask, as this should help to moisturise and nourish your locks from the inside out.

Keeping your hair colour bright and shiny isn't the easiest feat, so invest in shampoos and conditioned designed for blonde hair to ensure that your locks don't go yellow and stay light over time.

Because your hair is fine, it tends to be quite thin and can lack volume. For this reason, it's worth investing in volumising and texturising products. When drying your hair with a hair dryer, blow-drying upside down can help to infuse volume into your roots. Go easy on styling products, such as hair gel, as these will only weigh down your hair, making it look even finer.

Bottle Blondes

For those of us who aren't graced with naturally blonde hair, there's always the alternative of having it dyed. We suggest not trying this look at home, opting instead for a professional job with your local stylist, who will be able to advise you on the right shade blonde to compliment your complexion.

Looking after bottle blonde hair is very important, as your locks may be prone to damage and breakage, especially if you use heat styling tools on a regular basis. For this reason, using products that are designed for bottle blonde hair and a weekly hair mask is highly advised. Using products for colour treated hair will help to lock your colour in.

Try not to wash your hair too often, that this will only wash the colour away faster and be sure to visit your stylist for a regular trim to keep split ends at bay!
