Headache pain: why do blondes need special hair care?
According to statistics, more than half of all stains in the world are blond of various tones. First, it’s beautiful. Secondly, it is very beautiful. And the point.
But lightening causes much more serious problems than switching to dark tones, and here’s why:
- Hair dries out noticeably due to the complicated dyeing process.
- As a consequence of point # 1, the hair begins to split at the ends and break off along the length.
- The strands lose their softness and become unpleasant to the touch.
- The desired shade of blond is gradually turning gray, begins to go into yellowness (and with an unfortunate coincidence of circumstances – into distinct green) within a week or two after staining!
Because of these features, hair care for blondes should be the best possible, and products for blonde should be selected from a number of professional products, as recommended by experienced hairdressers.
And still we have to choose: either we take care of, or we maintain the chosen shade … As a result, blondes have to spend on average 30% more on jars of magic shampoos and masks than brunettes or brown-haired women!
And, despite all the efforts, the unique light tone turns into an average blond that you have to face everywhere: at work, in queues at the supermarket and, most sadly, in the mirror. How to deal with this? Only comprehensively – this is what our experts say!

Protect hair from ultraviolet radiation
Provided that you do not have a goal to achieve exactly the effect of burnt hair (anything can happen!).
Wear hats in winter
When curls are damaged, they are least encouraged by temperature extremes and icy winds, especially for hair that tends to split ends.
Nourishing masks should be your regular skincare routine
Coming back to a nutritious, oily form of vitamins and antioxidants once a week is a healthy habit.
Leave-in serums and fluids are now your best friends
They will create a protective film around each hair and enhance the shine.
Never Forget Thermal Protection
And ideally, give up ironing and tongs for at least a couple of weeks after staining.
Practice gentle washing
The pigment will inevitably wash off, but this process will be significantly slowed down if in the first two to three weeks after staining, you opt for delicate cleansing formulas (for example, with gentle sulfate analogues or SLES in the company of emollient botanical surfactants).
Buy silicone and carbon combs
Professionals love them for their anti-static talents and their ability to delicately handle brittle and split strands.
Brush your hair regularly
Thanks to this everyday ritual, the lipid protection is evenly distributed from the roots throughout the hair, increasing its elasticity.
Blow dry your hair at low temperatures
This trick will help smooth the cuticles and keep the hair moist.
Switch to specialized care products
It is advisable to choose hair care products for blondes, rather than formulated for colored hair in general.

Cabin Blond Tone Correction – Heavy Artillery Blondifier
Home care is just a small part of what this line can do. The real magic happens in the salon!
Tone correction service on Blondifier cosmetics – this is the same individual approach for blondes, which is done in the third or fourth week after dyeing, when the color begins to lose brightness or go into an unwanted tone.
For the correction of blond shades based on the Blondifier range, we compose cocktails with the addition of highly pigmented boosters. The combination of boosters in different dosages allows you to achieve almost any light tone. Now you can freshen up the blond with an increase in the desired undertone – from golden to platinum. Or, if soon after staining the shade did not like it, with the help of boosters in skillful hands, it can be corrected without re-staining. It is not recommended to mix such effective cocktails at home, because it is easy to make a mistake, and the result can be unpredictable.
The Blondifier scheme is simple: coloring – shade correction in the salon with intensive restoration of the hair structure – maintaining the effect at home. Just three steps to say goodbye to a dull, faceless blond. And judging by the impressions of our stylists, it’s worth it!
