Hair Care

Hey everyone, so I’ve decided to do a blogpost on the products that I use to keep my hair healthy and blonde. If you’re blonde you will know that it’s the hardest colour to maintain. I have literally dyed my hair every single colour and blonde is by far the hardest to keep healthy in my opinion but with saying that I’ve managed to keep my hair in good condition since I made the transition from brunette to blonde in the past 2 years.

Colour talk.

The most frequently asked question I get is “what colour do you get”? So basically I get a bleach tint and a P02 toner. What that is is an all over blonde tint using bleach and peroxide that is applied to my roots. The toner is then applied to my hair after the colour has been done. As you can imagine this can be quite damaging to the hair so it’s best to be done by a professional who knows what they’re doing. Amy Bejaoui, a Wella Master Colourist based in House of Colour Charlestown has been doing my hair at home since June last year and she is amazing I cannot recommend her enough.

Home Care.

When it comes to any hair colour the products you use at home are really the most important thing you can use to keep your hair in tip top condition. I wash my hair every 3-4 days, some weeks I’d leave it longer as over washing is bad for your hair. So here are my favourite products to use…

•Kevin Murphy Repair Me Wash

One of my favourite shampoos to use. It really does help repair the hair while leaving it super clean. I’m also a big fan of the Honey like consistency!

•Alfaparf Reparative ShampooThis is also a great shampoo to use to help keep hair in great condition. A little definitely goes a long way with this product.

•L’Oréal Silver Shampoo I absolutely love this silver shampoo. I’ve tried so many purple/silver shampoos and this is by far the best one I’ve used. It doesn’t leave your hair with a greyish hue in fact it cleans out any brassiness while leaving the blonde super fresh and clean. I generally use this every few washes.

•Kevin Murphy Blonde Angel Conditioner

Ok, so this product is a must have for blondes. Not only does it leave the hair super soft it’s blue tone works like a blue shampoo for the hair. You can leave this on for a few minutes and let the conditioner work like a treatment while it cleans out any brassiness. I’d prefer this product over a purple shampoo any day!

•Joico Blonde Life Brightening Conditioner

This is another great conditioner for blondes. It brightens and conditions while leaving the hair looking healthy. I love using this product and then spraying my hair with the Joico Blonde Life Brightening Veil, it gives the most amazing shine to blonde hair.

•Label M Protein Spray

I recently started using this product after my hairdresser gave it to me as a gift a few weeks ago and I love it. The protein spray has made a huge difference to the overall feel of my hair when blow drying it. It helps to keep my hair looking and feeling smoother. It also protects against any heat damage caused by my the hairdryer, ghd or wand aswell as any UV damage that can dry out blonde hair.

•Wella Oil Reflections I saved the best product till last. This oil is a must have. Not only does it smell amazing it gives the most amazing shine to all hair colours particularly blondes. I apply it to my hair while damp and blow dry as normal.

•Olaplex

As I previously mentioned blonde hair is the hardest hair colour to keep looking healthy, but with good hair care at home and regular hair treatments that can be achieved not forgetting having a good hairdresser. Olaplex is one of the best hair treatments out there. I use this before I’m due to get my colour done as it prevents my hair from snapping off and throughout also. It’s quite pricey but definitely worth it. I leave this in my hair overnight too 👌🏻

So there you have it, my go to hair products I use to keep my hair looking and feeling healthy while staying blonde! Hope you enjoyed ❤️
