Blonde is probably one of the most iconic hair colors out there. It’s associated with youth, vibrance, Marilyn Monroe, and of course having more fun. And some people absolutely adore having blonde hair (regardless of the color they were born with). But all of those upsides come with a price: blonde hair requires specialized care, especially if it’s dyed or highlighted. And there are some things you just shouldn’t do to blonde hair if you want to keep it looking bright and sunny.
Basically, blonde hair requires a fair amount of TLC. Everything from the type of shampoo you use to the how often you blow-dry your hair can have an affect on your locks. Even minor things, such as shampooing every day or towel-drying your hair, can actually cause damage to it. And we’ve all seen at least one blonde whose hair turned green from a chlorinated swimming pool.
There’s no getting around it: this color is a bit high maintenance. Fortunately, maintaining the type of care it needs is not particularly difficult (although you may wish to invest in microfiber towels and some UV protective spray). But it’s a small price to pay if rocking blonde locks fits your style.
