L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Balayage At-Home Highlighting Kit

The kit even includes a precise applicator that mimics the hand-painted strokes of balayage and a pro-toning mask to blur color at the roots.

How to Care for Color-Treated Blonde Hair 

Color-treated blonde hair needs some extra attention when it comes to your routine. Ahead, find some tips to help you care for your new hair color.

1. Use a Sulfate-Free Hair System Color-Treated Hair

A sulfate-free system like the L’Oréal Paris Everpure Bond Strengthening Pre-Shampoo Treatment, the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Repair Shampoo with Citric Acid and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Repair Conditioner with Citric Acid helps to prevent fading hair color. Along with that, this trio also uses citric acid to penetrate the hair cortex and rebuild weak bonds that result from constant bleaching and heat styling. Use it when you wash your hair to repair current damage and ward off future damage.

Apply the pre-shampoo treatment on damp hair, leave it on for five to eight minutes and rinse. Follow up with the shampoo and conditioner as usual.

2. Maintain Vibrancy With an At-Home Glossing Treatment

Even permanent hair dye fades over time, so fight that with an in-shower glossing treatment like the L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss. In as little as five minutes, it deep conditions and corrects lackluster, brassy color, leaving your hair with a silky, renewed finish.

Color-treated blonde hair can succumb to brassy tones so ward them off with a purple shampoo like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Brass Toning Purple Shampoo. The purple dyes in this shampoo neutralize unwanted yellow and orange tones in highlighted blonde, bleached and silver hair. This is an important step because you don’t want brassy hues disrupting your new blonde color. After you’ve washed with purple shampoo, follow up with the corresponding L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Brass Toning Purple Conditioner. Depending on how often you wash your hair, aim to use this duo every few shampoos or once a week. 

3. Always Use Heat Protectant and Embrace Air Drying

A good hair practice to adopt is to prime your strands with heat protectant every time you style your hair. We love the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Weightless Blow Dry Primer, Heat Protectant, as it smooths hair, protects against heat up to 450 degrees of heat and enhances shine.

Bleach can damage your hair, so if you notice that your hair isn’t in the best condition, try to cut down on heat styling. If you use heat daily, try to limit it to once a week and there’s a good chance you’ll notice a huge improvement in the condition of your hair. 

In your efforts to avoid hot tools, air-dry your hair. Those with wavy and curly hair can use a curl-enhancing leave-in conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Non-Stop Dreamy Curls Leave-in Conditioner to define their natural waves. Those with straight hair can opt for the L’Oréal Paris Everpure Sulfate Free Simply Clean Midnight Color Care Serum to reduce frizz, smooth the hair and add shine. If you need some heatless styling inspo, try overnight braids or overnight beach waves.
