At the beginning of this year, I wanted to switch things up so I went blonde for the very first time. It got complicated (lol) but sparknoted, goodbye hair.
Going blonde meant bleaching my hair – not just once, but multiple times. Anyway, here’s how I try to keep it hydrated and looking (relatively) silky. This is my current in-shower hair routine:
Seacret Mineral-Rich Hydrating Mud Shampoo
My mom introduced me to the brand Seacret, so I have a few of their hair and body care products, but first I wanted to talk about the shampoo I use – SLS free product contains argan oil, pro vitamin B5, vitamin E, black mud from the Dead Sea, silk protein, etc. It’s gentle enough for daily use. I’ve noticed other shampoos can be extremely drying on colored hair, but this one seems to do the job.
Seacret Mineral-Rich Vitalizing Mud Conditioner
If I’m feeling lazy to do a hair mask (but my hair dresser recommends as often as possible so – uh every day), I’ll just use the same line conditioner. Works well, leaves my hair tangle free.
S Factor Serious Conditioner w. Sunflower Seed Oil
This is my holy grail hair mask (again my mom’s recommendation). Silky soft strawberry scented hair. It’s pretty expensive for a conditioner, but this takes hydration to the next level and a little goes a long way.
Jhirmack Silver Brightening Ageless Shampoo
This was my very first purple shampoo, (apparently an essential to neutralize any unwanted brassiness). It was the only purple shampoo I could find at my local CVS at the time. It’s definitely affordable, and I think it gets the job done. I still want to try other purple shampoos.
Not Your Mother’s Blonde Moment Treatment Conditioner
I can’t exactly tell if I see a big difference in color, but it definitely smooths out my hair so I still use it. My bleached hair feels softer. I think of it more as a daily conditioner/mask.
