Bottle blonde celebrities and models make it look easy, but in reality, they have more than a few tricks up their sleeves to implement a specifically tailored hair care routine to help ensure their golden tresses look positively radiant. Yep, caring for blonde, color-treated hair can take a lot of work. Do you dye your hair blonde? Below, find hair care tips for everything from how to neutralize brassiness to how to disguise gray roots in between touchups.

1. Use a System of Shampoo and Conditioner Formulated for Blonde Hair

After you dye your hair, it’s important to switch to products that are formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner. The EverPure Blonde system helps to gently cleanse, condition, and balance blonde hair, neutralize brassiness, and deeply hydrate over-processed hair. Gently massage the shampoo into wet hair, then rinse. Follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing out.

2. Add a Reviving Treatment to Your Weekly Hair Care Regimen

Like we told you earlier, blonde hair certainly requires maintenance. So, once a week, use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment after shampooing with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo. It’s a refreshing mask for blonde, colored hair that helps instantly neutralize brassiness while intensely nourishing over-processed hair. Apply it to towel-dried hair post-shampoo, leave on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

3. Be Mindful When Heat Styling

Excessive heat styling can lead to damage, so if you have bleached, blonde hair, you may want to give your blow-dryer and flat iron a break every once in a while. You don’t have to sacrifice style, though! Create effortless-looking beachy waves by spritzing on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried hair. Then, braid your hair and undo the braid once your hair has dried to show off those waves. Is volume what you’re after? Apply an egg-sized dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to wet hair, flip your hair over to scrunch, then let it air dry. Meanwhile, to add a touch of smoothness to your hair, apply a dime-sized blob of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream to wet hair, then use a tiny bit on dry hair. Who says you need a heat tool to achieve a pretty style?

4. Find a Colorist You Love

Coloring your hair blonde can be a whole long process, especially if your natural base color is dark brown. It requires bleaching and you may need to visit a colorist multiple times to achieve the level of blonde you want. That’s why it’s essential to find a professional colorist you feel comfortable with—you’ll be seeing him or her often for touchups as well! Ready to try a different blonde shade? Bring in photos so that your colorist has a clear idea of how to proceed.

5. Take Your Time

When it comes to switching up your blonde color or going from dark hair to a lighter shade, patience is key. A professional colorist will recommend gradually lightening your hair over time in order to help maintain the integrity of your strands. You’ll be happy you waited!

6. Protect Your Color

UV rays can potentially cause color to fade. So, consider using products that are formulated with UV filters, and throw on a floppy hat when you know you’ll be spending an extended amount of time out in the sun.

7. Get Regular Trims

Ends looking a little ragged? It’s time for a trim! Make an appointment with your stylist to snip off any dead ends so that you can help keep your blonde mane looking as gorgeous as it can be.

8. Temporarily Mask Gray Roots

Of course, you may not always find the time to make it into the salon for frequent touchups. On those days that you want to hide your gray roots, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Root Cover Up, which comes in light to medium and dark blonde shades. Spray it directly onto new growth and lightly through the rest of your hair. It lasts for one shampoo.
