How to Care for Blonde in the Summer

Blondes may have more fun, but they might have more problems when it comes to maintaining the perfect shade. Not to worry! Read on to find out how to #selfie-proof your blonde hair all through summer and beyond.

Whether you’re a natural blond or a bottle blond, we know you want to keep your golden locks healthy and radiant. Read below for our tips on how to maintain the perfect shade all year round.

1. Reduce Washes

Instead of washing frequently, opt for a dry shampoo. IGK Dry Shampoos will clean and revive dirty, oily hair until your next wash.  

2. Eliminate Sulfates

Sulfates strip the hair of essential oils, which can be damaging for color. Choose sulfate-free shampoos and hydrating conditioners for optimal maintenance.

3. Protect from Sun Damage

UV rays break down the cuticle, leaving your strands dry, damaged and frizzy. Use products with UV protection that shield hair from the sun.

4. Add Mixed Feelings to Regimen

Turn your favorite hair product into a custom-mixed toner with Mixed Feelings Blonde or Brunette Toning Drops. Banish brassiness and keep your shade true. 

5. Add Blocked to Regimen

Water is one of the most damaging elements for hair and can fade its color. To protect your hair, you can apply a conditioner before entering the water or use Blocked Water-Resistant Hair Shield to seal the cuticle and prevent damage.

6. Add Mistress to Regimen

Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm is an innovative leave-in conditioning balm that melts into your hair and instantly boosts hydration.

7. Protect from Heat Styling

Heat styling hair damages and weakens the cuticle over time. Apply a heat-protective product like Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray that will protect, strengthen and nourish hair against high temperatures.
