How to Care for Blonde Hair Properly

Updated on January 1, 2013

It's fun to have blonde hair. When you have blonde hair, it often feels like you've captured sunshine in your locks. Blonde hair is light and airy and carefree. And with blonde hair, you can easily go from girl-next-door to blonde bombshell to femme fatale depending on the shade of blonde you go for.

Moreover, it's now quite easy to acquire blonde locks even if you're not born a natural blonde. A couple of hours with your hairdresser or a quick trip to your local beauty store for blonde hair dye should do the trick. But whether you're a natural blonde or a transformed blonde, what's important is you give your hair the proper care it needs due to its color.

Blonde hair – both natural and dyed – requires a specific hair care regimen. If you want to maintain the beauty of your sunshiny locks, it's important that you establish a hair care system that is appropriate to its color. Here are a few tips that will help you out.

  1. Use hair care products specifically formulated for blonde hair. Blonde hair, especially natural blonde hair, is typically fine and delicate. As thus, it's very important that you use hair care products meant for use with blonde-colored locks. Such hair care products, like the Schwarzkopf BlondeMe product line, are gentle on the hair and will help you maintain your hair's color and brilliance.
  2. Be lavish in conditioning your blonde hair. Because blonde hair is fragile, you should be generous in applying conditioner to your hair. To prevent fading and breakage, you should condition your hair every time you shower and before you style your hair with your hair dryer and hair straightener. Additionally, you ought to make it a point to pamper your hair with deep conditioning treatments at least once a week.
  3. Avoid exposing your blonde hair to saltwater or chlorine-treated water. Salt and chlorine causes blonde hair to turn green. So, if you swim a lot, you should wear a swimming cap to limit the exposure of your tresses to saltwater or chlorinated water. In addition, you should use clarifying shampoos and conditioners like the L'Oreal Shine Blonde duo if ever your hair shows signs of brassiness or turning green. You can also wash your hair with water mixed with lemon juice.
  4. Protect your hair against UV exposure. Blonde hair tends to fade when exposed to ultraviolet rays. To prevent your hair from fading because of sun exposure, always wear a hat, a scarf or any head cover when going out between 10 AM to 3 PM, when the sun is at its zenith. You should also apply hair conditioners that can protect your tresses against UV ray exposure.

It's definitely fun to have blonde hair. Being blonde is like carrying sunshine in your hair. And as long as you care for your delicate sunshiny locks the way it is meant to be cared for, you can continue enjoying your blonde hair for as long as you want to be blonde.
