Any stylist who has been in the industry for longer than five minutes knows blonde hair color requests are a daily occurrence. And for good reason: Natural blondes are rather few and far between, but a lot of us spend time, money and energy chasing down that perfect blonde color. A flattering blonde hue is head-turning and eye-catching—and in our opinion, absolutely worth every second at the salon. The latest blonde hair color craze comes straight from the red carpet: baby blonde hair. Named for the delicate, super-bright ash blonde that some (eventually) brown-haired babies and young children seem to have at an early age, this shade of blonde hair is light, almost matte and, as is the case with most blonde lifts, semi-challenging to achieve. Plus, it requires a fair amount of upkeep.

How to Care for Your Baby Blonde Hair
Pick the Right Shampoo and Conditioner for Baby Blonde Hair
All blonde hair veterans know, dyeing your hair lighter makes your strands prone to brassiness overtime. To help avoid this, use Nexxus Blonde Color Assure Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. This is a great set to use because it helps protect the vibrancy of any blonde hue.
Protect Your Baby Blonde Strands
Let’s face it, everyone knows that protecting your hair from damage, especially when dyeing it, is the most important thing you can do. An expert stylist won’t push your strands further than is healthy. They’ll make sure the integrity of your hair stays intact. That being said, no matter how cautious your stylist is with the bleach, some damage will inevitably be done. You can combat this with the help of a hair mask. Use TRESemmé Botanique Color Vibrance & Shine Intensive Hair Mask. We love this mask because it deeply nourishes your hair without stripping your color. We recommend using this once a week for the best results.
