First and foremost we have to start with how to maintain your blonde hair and keep that blonde looking healthy and not dry.

Here are 7 of the best tips to keeping your blonde hair blonde!

✨If you go swimming in a pool you don’t know- do NOT get your hair wet!

✨If it is a pool you know, put conditioner in first

✨Use a good moisturizing hair mask after getting in the ocean

✨Keep hair away from sunscreen


✨Always use a heat protectant

✨tuck the heatless wire behind your head so its not sticking out and bothering you
