Blonde Hair Care! Don't go orange

Knowing which types of products you need to stock your shower with is extremely important.

If you're a platinum or ash blonde, you may already know about the miracle of purple hair care products. Purple-tinted shampoos and conditioners balance your hair color, adding cool undertones and preventing it from getting brassy or gold between touchups.

If you're using a shampoo for damaged hair but your hair is simply dry, you could be doing more harm than good. Ask Melina to recommend the proper hair care routine for you.

Your scalp emits heat approximately 3/4 inches from your head. And since heat causes bleach to develop more quickly, you'll need to get your regrowth done before your hair has grown out past the 3/4 inch mark, approximately every four to six weeks.

Your hair can get damaged from the sun just like the rest of your body, leaving it dry and potentially fading your beautiful hair color. Be sure to use a UV protectant spray on your hair during the summer to protect it from the sun's harsh rays.
