Dishwater Blonde Hair Is Now a Trend—Here’s How to Get the Look Dishwater Blonde Hair Is Now a Trend—Here’s How to Get the Look Dishwater Blonde Hair Is Now a Trend—Here’s How to Get the Look

First there was ombré hair and then there was bronde hair. Now, we have dishwater blonde hair—the blonde equivalent to mousy brown hair. Known for its incorporation of various shades of darker and lighter blonde into one well-blended look, dishwater blonde hair is basically dirty blonde hair with a modern twist. From sandy to ash undertones, dishwater blonde hair can be tailored to your preferences and skin tone. This dark blonde hair color borders on the edge of light brown and the process to create the look can require a little patience. That’s why we’re walking you through the process, in addition to sharing tips for caring for your dishwater blonde mane after dyeing. Get the full scoop below!

HOW TO ACHIEVE DISHWATER BLONDE HAIR

As always, there are two ways to go about dyeing your hair: You can either make a salon appointment or DIY the color at home.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GOING TO THE SALON

If you decide to see a pro, they’ll be able to weave a bunch of different blonde and brown tones into your mane for a customized look. Keep in mind that if you’re starting with a dark base shade, you’ll need to have your hair bleached, and it could even take multiple sessions to reach your desired dishwater blonde shade.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COLORING YOUR HAIR AT HOME

If you’re interested in coloring your hair dishwater blonde at home, your best bet is to go for an all-over wash of color. To get dishwater blonde hair without leaving your house, try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Ash Blonde or L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme in Medium Blonde.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF DISHWATER BLONDE HAIR

If you’ve ever colored your hair before, then you know that along with a pretty new hue comes the need for a new hair care routine. Follow these steps to show your dishwater blonde hair some major love!

1. Use a color-safe hair care system

It’s time to push your regular shampoo and conditioner to the back of your shower. Instead, reach for hair care products that are safe for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. Swap out the conditioner for the hair mask once or twice a week and leave it on for three to five minutes after shampooing.

2. Rinse in lukewarm water

When you’re in the shower, is your first instinct to dial up the temperature as high as it can go? While that may feel relaxing, consider turning down the heat. Super-hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, which can make it feel drier. So, rinse off in lukewarm water the next time you hop in the tub.

3. Spritz on a heat protectant before styling

Want to blow-dry your dishwater blonde hair straight? Before grabbing your blow-dryer, apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.

4. Air dry your mane to perfection

Sure, a smooth, sleek blowout has its time and place—but why not pair your dishwater blonde hair with messy texture or effortless waves from time to time? The good news is, you can embrace bends in your hair without ever picking up a curling iron. It’s all about air drying your hair the right way. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried hair, then go about your day. That’s all you need to do to create a beach-inspired hairstyle! You can also apply the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty to dry hair to define your hair’s natural shape and texture.
