Girls that lighten their hair to lovely shades of blonde have the infamous problem of not being able to grow their hair long. The process of lightening hair can be rough on the actual strands, causing them to be weak and break before they get to a longer length. So are unnatural blondes doomed to having to turn to extensions? Yes if you aren’t careful, no if you follow these hair care tips. Click the notes for more. –– Kelly Rowe
Hair Masks Are Your Friend
Using a hair mask twice a week will replenish moisture and strength that was lost through the blonding process. The more moisturized and reinforced with protein hair is the more it will be able to withstand everyday stressors. We suggest whipped treatment because it also has color saving properties that will keep the shine in your sunny strands.
Experienced Colorists Only
Make sure you are visiting a very experienced colorist and never attempt to blonde yourself at home. You need someone who will be very careful not to overlap color. Overlapping will result in double the damage in half the time.
Lay Off the Heat
Heat dries out and damages hair; when you are a lightened blonde your hair is already dry and slightly damaged. Don’t add to the problem. Save heat styling for special nights out and invest in products like hair crème for sexy undone air-dried hair the rest of the week.
