Do blondes do it better? Do they have more fun? Do men prefer them? well we may never get the answers to these questions but one thing is for sure: Blonde hair comes with its own rules set of rules.
I am only going to give a few tips lightly and not go into to much detail, but what I am about to tell you is a God given fact. If you are not naturally blonde and you plan on making the big switch, please bare in mind “Rome was not built in a day” and please do not use drugstore dye and attempt to do it yourself because trust me I saw these disasters myself as well with girls wanting to be full on blonde in one session.They were impatient and they had to face the consequences. It took me literally 1 year to be a Blondie. 1 year of hair appointments and treatments and still there were little things going wrong. There is no easy way.
Take it slow. No need to rush. Good things take time. Doing it over a stretched period gives your hair time to heal and restore after that traumatizing bleach session.
Tip 2. (when you are finally blonde)
Instead of a towel, use a t-shirt to dry your hair after the shower. Friction with a towel can cause frizz and unnecessary dryness, but the soft cotton of a t-shirt will keep natural moisture in your hair.
Get purple shampoo. Strange as it may sound, purple shampoo keeps your hair color from turning brassy, which can happen with other shampoos that aren’t specifically formulated for blonde hair. DIY solution: Take your normal shampoo and add a few drops of Gentian Violet, if you are unable to find Gentian Violet in your country a few drops of purple food colouring would also work
Before going into a pool, use bottled water to get your hair wet. If your hair is already soaking wet when you go into a pool, it won’t soak up the chlorine in the water, which is what can turn blonde hair green
Blow dry on the cooler setting, especially if you have to blow dry every day. This will do away with some major damage that hot air can cause. Try also not to wash your hair to much, rather every third day, and if you do have straight hair let them hair dry.
Use hair oil for fine hair (which is also great for light hair). Just from the mid-lengths to the ends, a serum for light hair will help to keep your strands moisturized
DIY Coconut Oil
The wonders of coconut oil never cease! This oil is heavy, which is great for penetrating deep into the hair shaft, but use it sparingly, especially if you have fine or thin hair. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply to the ends of damp hair. If the oil is solid just warm in the microwave until liquid before applying. Got really dry hair? Keep the oil on overnight and shampoo out in the morning
Coconut Milk Organix Serum
This is the specific product I use, it is my little miracle in a bottle. it is a anti breakage serum which I used on my damp hair after I washed it, so maximum 4 time a week. 1 squirt every 3 days kept my hair so soft and breakage free. It does not leave a oily look or feel in your hair and it smells amazing. In South Africa I paid R160 for a 118ml at Fochinis and for American readers I see they can get it at Walmart for $5.74
Well Barbies that’s a wrap
