Over the past few weeks, many celebrities including Kaia Gerber and Emily Ratajkowski have been changing up their hair by going blonde. But full-on platinum requires some upkeep, especially during the summer with the sea, sun, and chlorine. Here’s how to make your blonde last longer this summer.
Protect Your Hair With SPF
Before heading outside in the sun or swimming, apply a plant oil with SPF to your hair to protect the color and keep your hair nourished. This will keep your hair from turning brassy or yellow and it will make your hair shine.
Use a Rich Mask
If you plan on heading to the pool, use a rich treatment mask as a barrier from the chlorine which strips your hair of its natural oils. Also, tie your hair back to avoid it from getting wet.
When possible, avoid washing your hair daily. If you’re active just run it through warm water and use a light conditioner to get out the sweat.
Boost Color With Tinted Conditioner
Tinted conditioners will help your color look fresh in between hair appointments. Also, apply conditioner to the ends of your hair before getting into the ocean or pool.
Avoid Styling Tools
Invest in a microfiber towel to dry your hair and let it air-dry. Styling tools will damage your hair and make it more prone to breakage.
