7 Products Every Blonde Should Have
I'm just going to come right out and say it. Life really is better blonde (sorry, Lyuda). Keeping up with your color though? Not so fun! I've been through all stages of blonde hair. The white trash bleach blonde, the accidental grey blonde (never will I use boxed hair dye again, ever), attempted ombré blonde, 2 inches of fried ends blonde - the list goes on and on! Eventually, I was so sick of having unhealthy, brittle hair - I quit the dye jobs. It's been a little over 2 years since I last colored my hair. Yes I said, 2 YEARS! My hair has never been healthier and who doesn't love being able to say "I'm a natural blonde"? It's a miracle I still have this color, but I swear, if it wasn't for the sun and these products below, I'd still be getting those foils.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Shampoo & Conditioner, $5.99 each:
I absolutely swear by this stuff. It keeps my blonde color crisp and ashy toned year-round. I love that it takes care of cleaning, lightening and moisturizing all-in-one for $12.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Spray, $9.99:
This product is my #1 necessity. It is what ultimately weaned me off from coloring my hair. I spray it directly on my roots 3-5 times a week after the shower and brush it through. The spray lightens my hair very quickly and gives it a natural look. For a quicker and more noticeable lightening, use this spray with hot tools.
Goody Clear Elastic Hair Ties, $3:
Most of us natural blondes have decently thin hair. As we all know, thick hair ties and thin hair do not mesh. I always keep these clear plastic bands on hand. They hold my hair exactly where I want it to stay and I love that they're not noticeable.
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, $24:
Perk of being a blonde, your hair takes longer to show greasiness. For those days between showers, I make sure to use this dry shampoo. It makes my hair color look lighter and covers all the greasy spots. Plus, it adds volume and texture!
Umberto Beverly Hills Hair Oil, $9.99:
Blonde hair is already prone to being dry and brittle. You want to be sure you're giving your hair all the moisturizing it needs. I'm always putting oil on my ends to prevent breakage. I'm not a die hard for any product quite yet, but this one gets the job done.
The Wet Brush, $12.99:
The perfect brush for post shower. It pulls minimal hair out and causes no pain!
