Jessy went for a cool-toned blonde with hints of gray. We love how she kept her roots dark to create a natural gradient—it's a great tip if you want to reduce time between root touchups, too!
If you've been thinking of going blond and are wondering how you'll make it last, you'll need to:
Use products that are safe for colored hair.
That's pretty basic, but if you can find products that are specifically for blond hair, then all the better. FN Tip: Sulfate-free products are a must!
Opt for purple shampoo.
Regular shampoo makes your blond tresses look brassy, and that's not something you'd want. Opt for purple shampoo that's gentle on your hair to correct any brassiness and to keep the color bright.
Avoid hot showers.
Hot showers tend wash out color faster and make your treated tresses look dull. Go for a cool bath instead.
Avoid shampooing every day (if you can).
We get why you'd want to wash your hair daily, what with the pollution and dirt that sits on your scalp after commuting, but if you can, just rinse your hair well with water and moisturize your roots with conditioner for treated hair, in case you feel that your strands are too dry.
