Brunette chicks, I hate to say it, but you have it good. You naturally have great hair color that never really fades and always looks the same, but for blondes, life isn’t that easy. First off, there are a million different shades of blonde, and 9 times out of ten, these hair colors are fake (aka. they come straight from a good ol’ box of hair dye or from the magical hands of a hair dresser). Attainting the perfect blonde shade takes hard work and lots of cash, but I found a product that solves a couple of these problems and will help you maintain your color all summer long.
I use Davines Alchemic Silver Conditioner ($81.09 for 33.8 fl oz.) to help maintain my blonde hair during the summer months, when it gets dry and damaged from the heat or turns green in the pool. I also use it occasionally during the winter when I am basically hibernating and getting zero sun on my roots.
Do you ever feel like your hair looks perfect when you leave the salon, but a few weeks after the color looks like you did nothing to it? Yeah, me too. But this conditioner will hold your color and even enhance it! Remember when you learned about the color wheel back in middle school art class, or if you’re really fancy, in your fashion classes in college? Purple works to fight against brassy, orange or gold tones. That’s why Davines made this hair product purple. Now you may be apprehensive about putting something purple on your freshly colored or natural blonde hair, but I promise it works. It also makes your hair feel super soft.
I suggest using the conditioner once or twice per week. If you use it everyday, you might be on hair color overkill or cause it to actually turn purple (yikes!). But on the off days, check out the brand’s other products. This company has tons of hair masks, shampoos, conditioners, and sprays to try. It is clear that Davines cares about helping to make your hair look its absolute best. So check out all of their other great products in our slideshow. They’re brunette and redhead friendly, too!
