I’ve been wanting to do it for years and have chickened out every single time. Anyway, why not right? Several of these blonde hair color ideas below got me very excited about the possibilities. So while I try and decide what to do, enjoy browsing through these gorgeous pictures.
I have some great tips and product recommendations sprinkled throughout, so keep an eye out for those! Keeping your blonde locks healthy is extremely important. It keeps your hair from looking like straw or too brassy.
HAIR TIP: Deep condition often. Bleaching your hair or using color is hard on your strands! It strips it of the moisture it needs to look healthy and have volume. Use a deep conditioning treatment with Keratin.
HAIR TIP: Use dry shampoo. One thing your hair stylist will encourage you to do after it’s been lightened, is to wash it as least as possible. You’ll extend the life of your hair and the color. Try Big Easy Dry Shampoo which instantly cleanses and gives you volume.
HAIR TIP: Are you planning on going swimming in a pool this summer? When you jump in that chlorinated water your hair is soaking it all up – which can turn your hair green. Take a bottled water with you to the pool and drench your hair with it first. If your hair is already wet, it won’t soak up as much chlorine.
HAIR TIP: Try using a purple shampoo as a toner if your hair is getting too brassy.
HAIR TIP: Be careful with heat styling. Your blonde hair is more dried out than usual and using heat styling tools on it will make it even drier. Do your best to air dry your hair and when you do straighten or curl it, use a heat styling spray to protect it.
