Choosing hair products can be overwhelming – especially when attempting to maintain sun-kissed strands. While some may leave the flaxen locks to the airheads, it takes innovation to rock the blonde ambition. Being a blonde takes work. From light to medium shades of blonde, brassy hues keep on comin.’ It’s time to lighten your locks and keep your shades cool.
Here’s our list of best blonde hair care products for a flawless buttery blonde look.
Shampoo and Conditioner
It all starts with your time in the shower and many blondes find it difficult to keep brassiness at bay. If that’s the case leave regular shampoo and conditioner on the shelf and try this color-inspiring duo instead. Aveda blue malva shampoo and Aveda blue malva conditioner neutralizes brassiness and it’s blended with blue malva and coneflower so it smells great! These are safe enough to use daily, or can be added to your other shampoo/conditioner simply to keep your blonde color fresh. Also Aveda’s brilliant shampoo & brilliant conditioner are both another great option for blondes that want to mix in some daily moisture as well.
Especially if you aren’t…ahem…a natural blonde, make sure to add extra moisture and strength to your strands to keep them healthy. Our favorite conditioning treatment is Aveda damage remedy™ intensive restructuring treatment, which helps to strengthen your hair and restore it back to its natural shine, seal and smooth it out. It’s ah-mazing for adding silkiness and shine in between salon visits.
Style & Prep Products
Blonde hair tends to absorb light compared to our dark haired sisters in style. So keep shine in mind when you are selecting your style products. A product we recommend to our color clients in general, which works great as a primer, is Aveda color conserve™ daily color protect. If you’re looking to create structure and texture to a bob or lob, and live in an area that has humidity challenges, apply Aveda brilliant™ humectant pomade to your mane, using your fingers to achieve your intended style. This gently enhances texture while refreshing golden curls to maintain your waves even in dry climates.
Keeping it all locked in, think about blending a shine booster with your hairspray with a product like firmata™ firm hold hair spray from Aveda. If hair spray brings back too many bad memories from decades past, try Aveda brilliant™ spray-on shine. It’s enhanced with vitamin E and tames frizz but won’t add extra hold.
Whether you’re a beach-babe honey blonde, a stunning shade of platinum, or a lady with a hint of blue, there’s a product for you to keep your shine and keep the brassiness bearable.
