“Help, my blond hair is turning yellow!” is unfortunately a common problem with hair that has been dyed blonde. Blonde hair quickly turns yellow and that is often harder to avoid than you initially think.
Fortunately, there are a lot of things you can do to prevent blonde hair from turning yellow or, if it is already yellow, to get it nice and cool again in terms of color. In this article I list the best tips!
Prevent blonde hair from turning yellow
To limit the most damage, it is important to prevent your blonde hair from turning yellow first. Prevention is always better than cure and especially in the case of your hair color it is important to protect and care for your hair sufficiently to prevent worse.
Heat is the number one culprit when it comes to damaging hair, which can cause and exacerbate yellow tones. Try to avoid hot styling tools and let your hair dry naturally as often as possible.
The sun is also a harmful factor! So always protect your hair well in the sun. For example, wear a hat or use a hair product with SPF to protect your hair from the sun.
Also avoid swimming pools with chlorine. Chlorine in swimming pools can damage hair and exacerbate yellow tones. Try to avoid swimming in chlorinated water or if you do go swimming, make sure you wash your hair immediately afterwards with a good shampoo for blond hair.
Tips to treat your yellow blonde hair
Has your blonde hair turned yellow? Fortunately, there are also a few things that can ensure that the yellow tones are slightly less.
For example, there are now a lot of fine silver shampoos that you can use to wash your blonde hair. A purple silver shampoo can help to remove the yellow tint from the hair and make the hair brighter again. The purple tint of the shampoo neutralizes the yellow tones in the hair.
In addition, it is also important to continue to avoid heat, even if your hair is already yellow. Heat not only causes yellow tones but also makes them a lot worse if you already suffer from this!
However, nothing else helps at all? Then you will have to go back to the hairdresser. If the problem persists, a visit to the hairdresser may help. A professional hairdresser can remove the yellow tones from the hair and make the hair brighter again by means of a cool toner.
