Whether you’ve got dyed hair or you are a natural blonde, your locks need special attention during the summer months. Without special care, your hair will suffer from contact with the ultraviolet rays, wind, excessive temperatures, pollution, the salty water of the sea or the chlorine in the pool water.
To help keep your blond as bright and vibrant as possible, we are sharing some tips, rules and tricks you need to keep in mind.
For lasting brilliance
To keep your hair shiny, but also silky, rely on the effectiveness of a dry hair – conditioner leave-in spray. With this special care product, your hair will reflect light from any angle.
The secret of bottled water
If your locks are dyed, you already know that the high chlorine dose in the pool can leave unsightly traces. If you soak your hair with water in advance, you will be protected and your hair will not absorb the chemicals.
Moderation is the key
If you are used to washing your hair very often, you risk removing the natural oils that are essential to its health.
To prevent water from washing away your vibrant colour, the answer is simple: wash your hair less often – every 4 to 5 days and in the days between washes, use a dry shampoo to refresh and maintain colour. Make sure it is formulated specifically for blond hair.
The power of natural products
You certainly know what happens after a few days of sun exposure: blonde hair gets an unpleasant and not at all fond of orange. The natural products like shampoos, serums and oils are the perfect solution. They will protect the hair and make it more resistant.
The word of summer is, without a doubt, hydration. And again moisture! Argan or other essential oil hair masks play an important role in maintaining beautiful and healthy looks. For extra shine, pamper your colour-treated locks once a week with a deep-conditioning treatment. Apply the treatment to damp hair and comb it through from roots to tips. Before you get out of the house, spray your hair or use a protective oil. Avoid sun’s harmful effects by using a UV-protected spray. This will keep the colour from fading and keep the hair moisturised.

Break from the salon
We know you do not like the darker roots, but you also have to take into account the harmful effects of excess chemicals on your hair: scalp irritation and weakening of the hair. It would be ideal to return to the beauty centre once every 10-12 weeks for maintenance.
