The Ultimate Guide to Help You Care for Your Bleached Hair this Summer

Summer is on its way which means more sunshine, dips in the pool and trips to the beach. But exposure to the harsh rays of the sun will damage your bleached hair, causing the colour to fade and turn brassy.


We’ve compiled our top 5 tips to help keep your bleached hair looking vibrant all summer long. 

  1. It’s not chlorine that tints your hair green from a dip in the pool, its copper! Wash your hair under cold water before a swim to help saturate it and prevent your hair from absorbing copper from the pool
  2.  Bleach blonde hair can easily turn yellow if left unattended over time. The BEST way to combat this is by neutralising yellow and brassy tones with TONI&GUY Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. TONI&GUY products are enriched with violet pigments and pearl extract to keep your bleached blonde hair in top condition this summer

  3.  Try to go as long as possible in between hair washes. Over-washing can strip your hair of essential moisture and cause the colour to fade.

  4.  Avoid using your hair straightener, blow dryer and curler where possible. Your hair becomes vulnerable from the bleaching process so try avoiding heat where you can! Why not rock your natural hair?

  5.  If you’re touching up your grown-out bleach job, ask your stylist to leave the ends of your hair out of the foils. They’ve more likely reached their bleaching limit so if you over-bleach them they may break off!
