The 5 Worst Things For Blonde Hair

For all you blonde bombshells out there, we know how hard it is maintaining your color. All the upkeep makes it hard for your hair to always look its best, and let’s not even get started with all the jokes. Being blonde is a lot of work, so here are 5 things you should NEVER do to your hair to keep it looking fab:

1. Don’t jump right into a pool

Before going into a pool, pour a bottle of water on your hair to get it wet. This will prevent it from soaking up all that chlorine and turning your hair green.

2. Don’t wash your hair often

Dry shampoo goes a long way but make sure it is specifically for blonde hair! Waiting in between washes keeps the color vibrant and makes it last longer.

3. Ditch regular shampoo

Try purple shampoo! As weird as that may sound purple shampoo keeps your hair from turning that brassy color, which can happen with other shampoos that aren’t formulated for blonde hair.

4. Never shower in water with copper

Showering with copper-infested water can also turn your blonde hair green. In order to avoid having your hair change color, treat it with an acidic hair rinse like aspirin-dissolved water.

5. Don’t die your hair yourself

The perfect blonde blend takes technique, so using a box from CVS won’t work. You need a specialist to brighten your head and make your natural highlights come out, otherwise you’ll like a fake! (Gasp!) And no one wants that…
