Being blonde may seem easy, but it can often be somewhat of a challenge if you don’t know how to care for your hair. That’s why our guide is here today to help you to find your perfect solutions, from colour to conditioner; we’ve got recommendations for it all.
First off, if you’ve not yet taken the plunge and gone blonde but are considering it, the most valuable piece of information we can give you is to have it done professionally. Now, you may be thinking we’re a little biased being a hair salon and all, but you will never get the same effect, quality or damage limitations at home. Here are just five reasons why you should ALWAYS have your hair coloured professionally. At Central Studio we use the innovative technology of Smartbond to ensure that your hair is as healthy as it can be during the process for glossy locks once your colour is finished! The Step 3 Conditioner is also available for home use and is highly recommended for the upkeep of coloured hair. If you’re looking for hair colour in Bristol, we’re ready and waiting to book you in!
Finding a good shampoo can be somewhat of a challenge, but if you keep up with our blog or have visited our salon, you’ll know that we LOVE Kerastase shampoo and conditioners. They offer a wide range of products to suit all hair types, so if you’re unsure of which one would be the best for you, then pop into the salon and we’ll be able to advise you. One of the best options for coloured hair is the Kerastase Reflection Bain Chromatique Shampoo and Reflection Fondant Chromatique Conditioner, which helps to cleanse and revitalise your hair.
To avoid your hair turning brassy, silver or purple shampoo is a must-have hair product. They contain a deep purple pigment that stops the hair from yellowing, helping you to maintain a beautifully cool colour. There are so many different bottles available online and in shops that it can be difficult to navigate through the maze of reviews. Therefore, our top recommendation is the L’Oreal Proffessionel Silver Shampoos, which are tailored to your shade of blonde. These can be used on a weekly basis or when you feel your hair is in need of freshening up! Colour Corrector Blondes Series Expert from L’Oreal and is also fantastic, head to the salon for more information!
If your hair is coloured blonde rather than natural, it can often be left feeling dry and broken, and that’s where hair treatments come to the rescue! Again, Kerastase offer a fantastic range of hair treatments and masks, many of which can be enjoyed at home as well as in the salon. Here at Central Studio we offer a range of hair treatments in Bristol including our much-loved Nanokeratin treatment, which is half price for all treatments in March! This will give you smooth and manageable hair in one treatment, lasting as long as 12-weeks! L’Oreal’s Tocopherol Lumino Contrast range has a fantastic treatment for blonde hair for an at-home solution too.
Protecting your hair from heat is an absolute must, particularly if it has been coloured. Avoiding heat all together is simply not possible for most, therefore, protecting your locks is the next best thing. There are products available that will help to style your hair, as well as protecting it such as the Kerastase L’Encroyable Blow Dry Spray, and the Kerastase Discipline Fluidssime Spray to help you achieve salon perfect results at home.
Hair oils are fantastic if your locks are lacking a little lustre; smoothing each strand and giving you a glossy finish, they’re otherwise known as a blonde gal’s best friend! Our next recommendation is another one from Kerastase, the Elixir Ultime, which was recently featured in Refinery29 as ‘a blowdry’s best friend’. These can be applied both before and after blow drying and really perfect your final look.
