Maintaining Your Blonde: Tips + Tricks from a Professional

{This post contains affiliate links}

 

I am SO excited to virtually introduce you to my stylist, Ashley. I am teaming up with her to share some go-to products (in a wide price range) that help you maintain your blonde and of course, healthy hair. I have learned SO much from Ashley in terms of keeping my hair at the salon quality “freshness” when I go long periods of time between color.

I am currently obsessed with this balayage/ombre she does on me, the contrast is gorgeous and it allows me as a busy mom to not run in for a color once a month. She’s a magician and an expert blender.

Together we are going to bring you some products we love and tips on how to make the most of your blonde, natural or not at all different price points.

Not Your Mother’s Purple Shampoo ($) – I’ve started using this once a week or so to give me a little pick me up. You’ll read below why purple is perfect for your blonde locks from a professional below.

OGX Coconut Miracle Oil: Damage Remedy ($) – I love this stuff! It smells heavenly and it gives you that boost when what you really need is a trip to the salon. It keeps me flyaway sleek and shiny. I am a firm believer that there is no such thing a a cure for damage other than a chop chop, but this oil does a great job at helping tone the damage WAY down.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner ($) – This stuff is my jam. I try not to wash my hair often so I use this 1-2x per week, but when I do, it is truly a miracle! The second it touches your hair there is some crazy transformation going on. Almost immediately you can feel your hair soaking up all of the goodness and feeling refreshed! I am certain that this stuff has stopped damage almost in its tracks.

Hask Deep Conditioner Masks ($) – These are super affordable to use every now and then when you want to switch up your conditioning. I’ve always had great results and crazy healthy hair after these babies.

Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Oil ($) – “I have not personally used this product but alot of my friends and clients have. It is a treatment that helps to protect and control frizz. It also protects against the environmental damage that we tend to forget that we have. This is also perfect for a thermal protectant which we all need to use one if we are using any hot tool on your hair.” -Ashley

AG Hair Repair Serum Keratin Anti-Breakage Sealant ($$) – “This product is life. I am not even kidding. I use it every time I shampoo my hair before I blow-dry. It helps to reduce breakage as well as mends split ends. Im not even kidding on this… you NEED it!” -Ashley

Matrix Total Results So Silver Shampoo and Conditioner ($$). “This product is perfect for eliminating unwanted brassy tones as well as keeping your highlights looking as bright and fresh as they did when you left the salon. I recommend this to clients who want the ashy tones especially if your natural hair color is a dark brown (like Jessica 🙂 ). This can be found at most Ulta stores or online.” -Ashley

Kenra Professional Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner ($$) – “I absolutely love the Kenra Professional line so when I found this product I could not resist trying it on myself (I have very ashy blonde hair that I get done very often). This shampoo is what stylist like to call a purple shampoo. The reason why purple tones are so good for your hair is because when you look at the color wheel purple will always neutralize orange and gold. This is definitely a go to line for ashy blondes. And let me tell you the Kenra line smells incredible and moisturizes your hair.” -Ashley

Davines Alchemic Silver Shampoo and Conditioner ($$$) “This product is a salon exclusive product. However, it does need to be mentioned because I use it on so many clients. Davines line is from Italy and is a family owned company. All of their products are made with natural ingredients and have intense conditioning properties in them. The Alchemic Silver is a deep purple shampoo and conditioner that you can use either daily or any time you shampoo to maintain your platinum or cool blonde hair. It can be found at many salons that carry Davines or if you don’t know of one that carries it you can look it up on their store locator.” -Ashley

Kevin Murphy Blonde.Angel.Wash & Rinse ($$$) – “Oh my gosh this product is heavenly. The smell and the feel alone sold me on it. This product is another salon exclusive product that comes from Australia (can I just say every time I think of women in Australia I only envision beautiful luscious blonde hair, which yes there are brunettes there as well, but that is probably why I love this product oh so much). The ingredients in the wash and rinse contain rich butter products as well as  vitamins a & e. This would be perfect for not just platinum blondes but the dirty blondes (like Jennifer Aniston or Mischa Barton) It can be found at many salons that carry Kevin Murphy or if you don’t know of one that carries it you can look it up on their store locator.” -Ashley

Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Me Blonde ($$$) – “This product is my go to for after styling. It creates shine and continues to moisturize as well as prevents your hair from turning more gold from the rays of the sun. I LOVE THIS!” -Ashley
