Guest Post :: How To Care For Your Natural Blonde Hair

It is amazing how much hair care can vary from person to person depending on their hair color, hair thickness, and the texture. I absolutely love being a blonde, but it can come with a few challenges… Even though I am not as naturally of a blonde as I once used to be I’m still naturally blonde enough to attest to the fact that if I don’t moisturize my hair enough it definitely becomes dry and straw-like, too much chlorine in water causes my hair to develop some light, muted green streaks, and if I turn my hair dryer on full heat it will cause my hair to fell dry and brittle. Today Joana is guest posting and share a few hair tips and tricks for my fellow blondes out there!
They say that blondes have more fun. Whether or not that’s true, it is fairly true to say that blondes don’t always have more fun when it comes to looking after those light locks. Natural blonde hair tends to be a lot finer than darker tones, making it more fragile and susceptible to dryness and potential damage. That means it takes a little more effort to care for it, but when you know what to do, and not do, that care does become a lot easier. I’ve collected some of the best hair care tips & advice to show you how to care for your natural blonde hair.

Maintain Your Color
Congratulations! As a natural blonde you’re one of only 2% around the world – pretty special hey! However, that doesn’t mean that your golden locks can’t go dull if you don’t look after them. Try these top hair care tips to keep your locks beautifully blonde:

·      Lemon juice: Make a solution of equal parts lemon and water, and spray it on. Let the combination of the lemon and the sun do its work to help lighten your locks
·      Purple shampoo: Naturally blonde hair can go a little brassy over time, which means it goes a bit orange or yellow. One way of combatting this is to try a purple shampoo, which will restore the lost tones and bring it back to golden

Keep It Moist
Blonde hair is not only fine and fragile; it tends to be susceptible to getting a bit dry too. You can avoid the straw-like look though by paying close attention to your conditioning regime.

In addition to always applying conditioner when you wash your hair, the use of a hair mask or a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week will help keep your locks nice and fresh. Dryness can lead to more damage, so this is one of the most important hair care tips to follow if you’re a natural blonde.

Prevent Damage
Going back to how fragile blonde hair is versus darker tones, and the need to follow a hair routine that helps prevent damage, the following hair care tips are important in keeping your locks healthy:
·      Shampoo: Choose a shampoo that’s specifically suited to blonde hair, rather than just grabbing anything. Also, shampoo no more than twice a week as this can stress the hair – use a dry shampoo in between if need be
·      Cover up in hot sun: You’ve already got that much sought-after blonde tone, so you don’t need to overdo it in the sun. Cover up with a cool sun hat or light headscarf when the temperatures soar
·      Look out for split ends: The last thing you want to do is leave your hair for too long before having it trimmed. Split ends are nothing major, but if left alone they can quickly weaken the rest of the hair strand, so make sure you get regular trims

Look after your beautifully blonde locks with these simple hair care tips for natural blondes and you’ll be happy with the results!

  12. I have naturally blonde hair also. Of course, it's difficult to keep it looking NATURAL, isn't it? Lots of work with hi/low lights, base color, and always the CUT.
    The haircut, for me, is the most important of all. When my hair is perfectly cut I can jump out of the shower, blow it dry with a little "GLUE" the Schwarzkopf product, and I'm good to go.
