We explain how to protect your colored blond hair from the sun, chlorine and saltpeter so that this year you will not return from vacation with green hair.

There are problems that you will only understand if you also decided to bet on blonde hair. Surely you still resonate in your head the advice of your stylist since you went to make those California wicks for the first time, or threw yourself to try that blond ash scandal. "The blond is a very sensitive color, it is important that you take good care of your hair if you want to keep the color," they said. And surely you did the best you could during the rest of the year, but the dreaded summer arrives, with its swimming pools, its beach Sundays and its afternoons in the sun. Undoubtedly we all deserve to succumb to those irresistible moments, but the strong process of discoloration to which the hair is exposed to obtain blonde shades causes it to become especially weak and sensitive to external agents such as saltpeter from seawater, chlorine from the pool, or the penetration of UVA rays.

Yes, blonde hair is undoubtedly one of the most demanding. Blond tones tend to lose brightness and luminosity easily, especially after summer, so it is essential to follow a good routine of specific care throughout the year, and apply products specially designed to protect and repair blond hair.

One of the consequences of this weakening to which this type of hair is exposed during the hottest months, in addition to the weakening, is oxidation, and that dreaded greenish or orange hue that can make our summer look that we had taken care of so much Go to waste in a matter of days.

Why does blonde hair turn green or orange?
No, it's not black magic. Behind this unpleasant greenish coloration there is a scientific explanation: first, by bleaching the hair, it can suffer damage at a deep structural and compositional level, which makes it more porous, something that facilitates the penetration of chemical compounds They are found in the pool water. Specifically, the cause of this reaction in the hair is copper that comes from copper sulfate (II) pentahydrate (CuSO4), which is used as a fungicide and algaecide. This compound is, in its origin, blue, but when mixed with the yellow shades of the hair ... Voilà, green hair! The good news is that this compound is not present in the sea water, so if you go to the beach you will not have to worry.

How can I prevent and repair the damage?
There are several tricks and beauty routines that will help you keep the color as good as possible during the summer months:

Start pampering your hair in spring: so that the color survives the summer in conditions, the ideal is that, around the month of April, the intensity of the blond begins to decrease and opts for somewhat darker options, since the sun exposure, salt and chlorine brighten hair. Platinum blondes are also a good alternative, as summer enhances their tones.
Use shampoos, conditioners and masks with pigments that keep the color alive, and combine them with hair treatments that contain antioxidant, restorative and moisturizing properties, as they are more effective in preventing color deterioration. The Color Renew range, by John Frieda, incorporates a purple shampoo and conditioner specially designed to prevent this oxidation process.
Apply a mask of coconut oil: this oil is a great ally for blonde hair in summer, as it protects the surface of hair exposed to the sun and absorbs part of UV radiation. Added to its penetrating power in the hair fiber, it can help protect and recover blond hair.
Do not take off your hat: it is essential to protect the head (and therefore the hair) from the sun's rays, and for this there is no simpler and more effective way than a good hat. Similarly, you can apply specific hair protection products, which create an effective protection barrier not only against the sun, but also against salt and water chlorine. Ah! And don't forget to wash your hair as soon as possible when you leave the pool.
