Maintaining Blonde Hair | Current Hair Care Routine

November 20, 2017

Hello my lovelies! So a couple of months ago i went blonde with my hair and with that i needed a new routine to care for it. Blonde hair takes a little more maintenance that other colours, especially if your hair is bleached blonde like mine. I’ve been trialling a few products recently and i feel like i now got a solid routine. So if you’re a blonde or even if you’ve just got stressed out, coloured hair then read on… 

So i recently did a haul of a few goodies from bleached hair experts Bleach London, which you can read here . From that haul i found my holy grail silver shampoo from them. Silver shampoo is vital for blonde to keep them looking clean and to banish that dreaded brassy tone. Once or twice a week I’ve been using the  Silver Shampoo and Silver Conditioner  and it’s made a massive difference to how well my hair is looking, my blonde stays salon fresh and has a cool ashy tone to it.

Of course the downside to bleaching your hair is that it really effects the condition of your hair and breaks down it’s structure. To help minimise the damage and to give my hair a bit of well needed TLC i’m constantly coating it in a hair mask. My number one is the Osmo Deep Moisture Mask. Like the name suggests it’s a deeply moisturising mask that gives my hair that needed boost of hydration.

When it comes to styling i’m pretty low maintenance. I don’t like a lot of product in my hair as i find it gets greasy really quickly. However a must have of mine for years has been Moroccan Oil , it’s the most hydrating, and luxurious oil i’ve tried without being greasy or weighing the hair down. That little gem has been vital for hydrating my stressed locks. If i’m heat styling i always make sure to use a heat protector, my go to for years has been the Tresemme heat defence spray it does the job and doesn’t leave a residue on my hair.

One of the best things i ever did for my hair was switching up my hairbrush for the  Wet Brush. If you don’t own one of these you NEEEED to. I have the most knotty hair imaginable and it’s almost painful to brush my hair at times but the wet brush makes hair brushing a dream. It glides through my hair as if it’s silk and is way more gentle than traditional brushes.

Do you have any holy grail hair products?

    I used to be bleach blonde so I didn’t have to do anything to maintain it, other than get my roots retouched every now and again. It damaged my hair so much though that it felt like straw so I’d never do that again! I’d love to go blonde (Like a proper shade of blonde – not bleach) but because myhair is red, the colour wouldn’t stick to it for very long so it’d be a waste of time. I love Treseme and I use that same heat defence spray (: xxx

    Silver shampoo is a MUST isn’t it? When I was blonde I couldn’t live without it. Great that you have a deep conditioning mask too, lots of pampering needed to look after blonde hair! xx

    I was blonde once…. well ginger, it was the days before toning and grey shampoo 😱 I completely agree on the wet brush though, no painful knots anymore!

    I went blonde a while back but as my hair is naturally ginger it never quite goes the colour I want. Morocan oil and all hair oil are my hair savours though. I have quite dry curly hair so if you are in a fix of a deeper care routiene I would recommend olive oil products- they smell amazing you can just get a hair mask (regular shampoo etc might be too much).

    I’ve always wanted to try one of those wet brushes, they sound just like the sort of thing my tatty hair needs!

    Great post! I love using Moroccan Oil on my hair. I’ve never heard of a wet brush, but it sounds great!
