I’m kind of excited… as I write this I’m actually already getting back to my blonder roots. Courtesy of Andrew Jose salon on Charlotte Street I have today been taken back to my blonder self after going a little darker in the Winter months. But now I’m back, there’s no stopping me. There’s every chance I’ll be back full blonde by mid Summer. For now, let’s take a little look at some of my most loved blonde hair masks.
Having said all that, whilst I went darker, I was never really away from a touch of blonde, now just a little (quite a lot) more so. I still have a few darker bits to add some contrast in with the blonde. So as anyone who has coloured hair knows, it’s pretty much vital to keep it in decent condition rather than crispy and dry as it can be – especially when things like bleach are involved.
So here are three great hair masks that are ideal for blonde hair – natural or coloured. To keep it looking and feeling tip top.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Everlasting Blonde
Sheer Blonde was my first step into the blonde shampoo market back when I would spend all my Saturday job money in Boots (some things never change). At a time when as a teen, buying Sheer Blonde felt like a total treat. Ever since then I’ve always had a thing for it and go back to it time and time again. This one manages to give hair a boost and look after the longevity of blonde hair at the same time. Great if you have highlights and want to keep hair soft and silky.
Phil Smith Bomb Shell Intensive Treatment
A bargain option for keeping blonde hair all bouncy and light and avoid those brassy tones that nobody wants. This is good if you like to really layer on the intensive treatments to condition it – perhaps really long hair or you just like to really get that mask feeling of applying it thick. For ongoing maintenance this is a great option as there’s zero guilt, even if you want to slap it on day after day.
Catwalk by TIGI Fashionista Violet Mask
A classic for blondes, with a lilac tone to it. The ultimate for countering brassy tones and keeping blonde hair creamy and bright rather than brassy or redder toned. This one manages to condition and care for hair, without being weighed down and heavy – a good weekly hair treat to keep the colour in good nick for as long as possible.
What are your go to blonde hair care essentials?! I’m back in the world of lilac shampoo and deep conditioners. I do think I need to go full blonde again… once a blonde, always a blonde…
