How to keep your Blonde Bright!

Many of us love our blonde locks but don’t love the upkeep. The struggle to keep your blonde hair bold and bright is real. Even when you’re diligent about your blonde hair care routine, but over time, even natural elements can cause your cool tresses to become brassy, dull and feel a little bit brittle. The consistent heat from your styling tools are damaging your already frail hair strands and starting to look a little bit…..straw-like. Your platinum highlights are looking a lot more warmer, more yellow and less bright. Your hair isn’t as shiny. You go back to the salon way sooner than you wish you had to because #root and #brass and #deadends.

However, we argue that blonde hair no longer needs to be a chore! We have compiled some easy tips and tricks to follow to help maintain your brightness,  so that you can look salon fresh for longer.

Wash Hair less often

 Yes, yes, we know you’ve heard it all before but washing your hair less is crucial for faux blondes. Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. In place of regular shampoo, try INSIGHT Antioxidant Rejuvenating Mask, apply to wet hair, distributing evenly. Leave on 5/10 minutes, rinse thoroughly, this natural product protects the hair from external aggressions.

Choose colour Safe Shampoo

Experts recommend that after dyeing your hair it is essential to choose a specific shampoo for dyed hair, which will provide hydration, brightness and intensify the colour. INSIGHT Protective Shampoo is a line designed to brighten and enhance the colour, revitalizing the hair. The formulas are rich with extracts and natural oils, which protects the hair while preserving the brightness of colour. Ensuring colour lasts longer and is more resistant to washing.

Use Conditioner or Hair Mask

Professional stylists recommend alternating both products. The use of conditioning cream is mandatory to close the hair cuticle well and to better reflect the light by enhancing the brightness and enhancing the colour. You can apply hair masks for dyed hair that will enhance the colour, prolonging colour and smooth condition of the hair.

Use Anti Yellow Shampoo

In addition to using a specific shampoo for coloured hair, it is advisable to wash it with a Anti Yellow Shampoo to remove any undesired yellow and golden reflections all while enhancing and brightening grey and bleached hair to help achieve more intense brightness.

Try rinsing your hair with cool temperature water for the final rinse

One step you can add to this routine is making sure to finish off with a cold rinse each time you wash your hair. This will help keep your hair lustrous and shiny. If you think that water temperature isn’t important, think again because it actually is. If you learn how to use water of different temperatures to your favour, then it may really benefit your hair. Hot water can make your hair easy to break and weaken the hair roots.

Reduce the Heat

Try to blow-dry your hair as little as possible and give the blow dryer a break and go natural if you can. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Save the hot tools for special occasions and embrace your hair’s natural texture on a day-to-day basis. Try a natural hair oil to discipline frizz without heat for an effortlessly smooth undone style. When your hair is still damp reach for INSIGHT Styling oil NON OIL or liqiud crystals and distribute through your strands, —this will help to keep the frizz at bay! Then either air dry loose or style in a braid for a more controlled texture once your hair has dried.

In conclusion, follow these easy tips and tricks to help maintain your brightest,

  1. Wash hair less
  2. Make your colour last by using Colour Safe Shampoo
