How to Care For Your Newly-Blonde Hair

When I first bleached my hair a few years ago, I was in no way prepared for the mammoth task that was blonde aftercare. I hadn't researched about proper maintenance tips or searched for the most effective blonde products. Long story short, I was naive.

How naive was I?

For starters, I wrongly assumed that once my hair was bleached at the salon, it would remain that way forever — without any maintenance. I also didn't realise that the brassy tones in my hair would turn my newly-blonde hair, well, orange. Nor did I have the faintest idea about products like purple shampoo, which were ultimately required to counteract those orange, brassy tones.
