How to Keep Blonde Hair Bright

How to keep blonde hair bright is a question I am often asked as a hair colorist.  Overtime blonde hair, particularly solid bleached blonde, will oxidize and strange hues may emerge.  Most stylist will recommend purple shampoo and/or conditioner which can assist in canceling yellow hues, but does not remove build up.  An easy hack is to use an acid such as "vitamin C" mixed with water as a hair rinse.  You must proceed with caution since Vitamin C contains ascorbic acid and will dry out your hair quickly.  On blondes in particular a heavily diluted mixture used on washed and towel dried hair works best.  Some use a lot of vitamin C with shampoo to completely lighten hair, but our goal is to gently remove build up on blonde hair from metals in water etc.

trichotillomania awareness and Acceptance

Trichotillomania Awareness and Acceptance.  As a stylist working with hundreds of clients with Trichotillomania, I feel the need to share a story that may sound familiar to many.  A mother enters the salon with her shy daughter - they are both apprehensive to speak.  The young girl (approximately 13) is wearing her hair in a bun with a head band over the front of her hair.  Her mother explains that  her daughter has not let her hair down for over a year, and refuses to let her see her hair.  I take them to a private area, and brace myself, I believe her mother may not know the extent of the "issue" her daughter is having with her hair.  I ask them both if they have heard of  "Trichotillomania" a body focused repetitive behavior which involves pulling out ones own hair.  The mother seems to have some knowledge, but could not understand it.  The daughter sits silently as I ask permission to see her hair, she reluctantly agreed and I began to take off her scarf and ponytail.  Her mother was shocked as tears ran down her face.  The young girl just looked down in shame.
