After getting my hair done recently (I got a balayage at Rush Salon), I needed some serious help on the hair hydration front, to make sure my hair doesn't go into that post-hair-dye-slump and to keep it in tip top condition. It can be incredibly hard to find the products that actually work and will actually add that hydration and condition back into your hair, so I've tested out a few and rounded up the best into a little routine to get our bleached hair back on track.
When washing my hair, I like to alternate between a couple of different shampoo and conditioners. I've got a little basked that I keep all of my 'to-use' bathroom products in and I very much make use of that when it comes to washing my hair. I firstly use the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Shampoo and Conditioner*. This pairing helps to combat any brassy or yellow tones that you may be left with in your hair through the purple shampoo. It also leaves hair super clean and shiny, while it protects the colouring of your hair from any UV damage that it may come across. I've fallen a little bit in love with this range and this is my current go-to purple shampoo. If I'm not washing and conditioning my hair with these two hair products, then I've been using the 100 Acres Shampoo and Conditioner*. I have to hold my hands up and say that this one is a little bit down to the packaging, but also because they leave my hair feeling squeaky clean (but not too much to the point that it dries my hair out) and smelling fantastic. The shampoo is filled with a Sage and Lemon scent and the conditioner is filled with a Rose Geranium and Clove scent and they just work beautifully together leaving an incredible scent on the hair.
To add hydration - the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Leave-In Conditioner* is perfect. It is a hydrating leave-in gel cream conditioner that you apply to damp hair before drying. It's super hydrating and really makes a difference. To add more hydration, then my go-to hair oil is the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Golden Girl Oil*. This hydrates my hair like I've never felt before. Just pop a bit through the lengths of your hair and dry as normal and you will be blown away too! It's incredible and I use this every time I wash. Finally, if you're still wanting to combat any brassy tones and add that extra bit of hydration then I would recommend giving the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Tone Correcting Conditioning Spray* a go. The beautiful shimmery purple liquid looks beautiful inside the bottle and it really does make a difference to your hair. It helps to neutralise the brassiness, strengthen the hair, hydrate and moisten the hair while conditioning and toning the hair. It's a do-it-all product, perfect for those with bleached hair and I can't quite recommend it enough. Just spritz over your hair before you blow dry and dry as usual.
I love adding products to help my bleached hair into my hair care routine. What do you use on yours?
