While we love summer for the fashion, the beach days, and the vibes, the summer sun and exposure can be harsh on your hair, especially when it comes to blondes. Whether you’re a natural or bottle blonde, there are a few care tips that should be added to your routine this summer to protect your hair.
How To Care For & Protect Summer Blondes
UV rays, heat, salt water, and chlorine are the top stressors that can impact your blonde hair colour during the summer months. These environmental elements can dull, discolour and damage your hair. Upgrading your routine with both in-salon and at-home care is essential to creating a flawless finish.

When blonde hair colour starts to fade or pick up pigments from environmental stressors it can turn brassy or yellow.
