Tress bless, no brass mess

Blondes have more fun, they say, but it is all about the company; brass tones and dry, stiff hair used to be not-that-fun company for blondes. Blonde hair maintenance requires a little extra TLC, and by that, we mean specific, targeted blonde hair care products. Because, neglected and unattended to, blond hair can turn brassy, and pretty quickly at that. Thankfully, gone are the days when brass tones, dry, bleached ends, breakage, and hair loss go hand in hand with being a salon blonde. No need to fret about blonde hair care now; other than, that is, which shade you'd like to pick. The best part? It's as easy as swapping one shampoo for the other, using one hair treatment in place of another. And, for a beauty junkie who likes to try different makeup products, skincare, and hair care products, that presents itself as a pleasure, not an obligation.

Whether you're a natural blonde, a sun-kissed beach babe, a platinum queen, or have highlights (or are thinking of going blonde for the first time), the holy trinity is hydration, gentle styling, and — purple. Now that you're a blonde, purple is your favorite color — purple shampoos will be the first line of defense against unwanted tones in your blonde tresses. We've got hair serums, styling foams, sprays, and other hair treatments, purple and not, that were tailor-made for blondes, cool and warm. Anyone with highlights could benefit greatly from either of them, too, as they will help revive the color and nourish the strands.
