Blonde Hair After-Care
Blonde Hair After-Care
They say blondes have more fun, but let’s be honest – caring for blonde hair can be a real hassle. Not only can elements (such as water, the sun, and air pollution) make your hair brassy, but over styling and processing your hair can also leave your locks dry and prone to breakage! Not to worry our Brisbane blondes, we’re here to impart knowledge on how to take care of your blonde hair after stepping out of Bennetts & Jackson! Let’s get started!
We used toners to adjust the shade of your hair after it was lightened. This is a colour and it will fade back to the undertone of the hair. Most toners last between 10-25 washes. It is important to follow the aftercare detailed here to maximize the life of your tone. If your hair starts to look brassy or dull you can schedule a glaze colouring (without another lightening session) to refresh it or use one of our custom colour conditioning treatments.
It is important to choose a gentle, sulphate free shampoo or cleansing conditioner for washing your colour treated hair. This will maximize the life of your toner as well as prevent your processed hair from becoming overly dry. You can use a dry shampoo on the roots/scalp to extend time between washes.
Lightened hair suffers moisture loss, using a good conditioning product is imperative. We recommend a deep conditioning treatment once a week to replenish & nourish your hair also
improves elasticity, soothes damaged strands, strengthens and adds shine.
Can literally fry your hair and fade toners. Try to keep hot tools at 180 degrees or less, use tools with a temperature gauge, and choose tools made of metals such as titanium or tourmaline instead of ceramic – they heat more evenly and glide smoothly over strands. Using a heat protectant will aid in protecting your hair against thermal damage and prolong your colour giving you lasting results!
If you go in pools, lakes, oceans, or hot tubs, try to keep your hair out of the water with a braid, ponytail, hat, swim cap, etc. If you cannot, first wet it with clean water followed with a leave-in conditioner to fill your strands so they can’t absorb as much of the ‘bad’ water. Chemicals, salts, etc. can damage the hair and strip and/or change colour. The most common for blondes is a green tint or “brassy” strands. Home remedies such as ketchup, soda, baking soda etc. should be avoided due to harsh pH and inefficiency at solving the problem.
