Having blonde hair is a commitment! Sure, the colour looks great but there is a lot of maintenance to do in order to keep it looking its best, not only in terms of colour but health wise as well. That is why both salon care and at-home care are necessary. We will give you tips on how to proceed using Eleven Australia hair products to guide you in the right direction.
So what’s the secret you ask? It all starts by using the right mix of shampoos, conditioners, treatments and after wash products. They will keep your hair looking its best and maintain the condition of your hair.
Tip n° 1: Treat
Treating your hair from home is a must. The Eleven Australia Keep My Colour Blonde Treatment works by neutralizing brassy yellow tones in your hair. Leave it on for 3-5 minutes and wash out of your hair. This treatment is perfect for those who want to maintain their beautiful blonde hair colour in between hair salon visits. Looking to restore health to your damaged hair? Use the Eleven Australia 3 Minute Repair Rinse-Out Treatment. Apply it to freshly washed hair for 3 minutes, then rinse. This will help treat your hair on a weekly basis by keeping it healthy. Using a hair mask once a week is recommended for those who want to maintain healthy hair all year long!
Tip n°2 : Lay off the heat
Blondes need to be more careful when it comes to heated styling tools. They can lead to more breakage and dryness than brunettes. We know it’s easier said than done, this is why we suggest using the Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment before styling your hair. It will prevent heat damage and ensure your hair colour doesn’t wash out as fast by protecting it. In the warmer summer months, it is suggested to ditch the blow dryer and let your hair air dry. This will increase the health of your hair.
Tip n°3 : Double shampoo
It’s something most hairdressers advise on doing yet so many of us do not do. This is especially important for blondes. Start off by using a hydrating shampoo such as the Eleven Australia Hydrate My Hair shampoo, then use the Keep My Colour Blonde shampoo for your second shampoo use. “Doing it this way evens out the porosity on the hair on the first wash so the purple pigment in the second shampoo is more evenly distributed across the hair. Finish with Eleven Australia Keep My Colour Blonde Treatment and you’ll have beautiful, shiny, creamy blonde hair.” says Melvin Royce Lane, an Eleven Australia Education Ambassador.
We hope these tips and tricks will help you in between your hair salon visits!
