After sitting in a salon chair for hours, the last thing we want is to see our blonde color fade or turn brassy
. While over-shampooing with the wrong products can cause your hair to dry out and fade, environmental factors including UV rays and hot tools can also affect your glossy color. By introducing color-protecting buys into your routine, you can save your shade on a daily basis. Here, shop our favorite treatments and styling products
that offer brighter, blonder hair overall.
