My Favorite Shampoos & Conditioners for Healthy + Bright Blonde Hair

Love, Lenore: my favorite shampoos & conditioners for healthy + bright blonde hair

Ever since going much blonder over the past year, I've tried a lot of different products to keep my hair moisturized, bright, and toned, so I wanted to share my favorites with you! Today's post will be focused on shampoos and conditioners, but I'll be sharing other products in the future 😌

My last couple of hair appointments I've gotten a pretty heavy highlight so as to be super blonde for summer, and it seriously sucks all the moisture out of your hair, so I've had to stay diligent and moisturize my hair more than ever to keep it healthy. And even though my natural color/roots are a dark ashy blonde, my hair pulls quite warm when colored, so brightening and toning shampoos/conditioners are a MUST for me. They are a complete game-changer if you're blonde or have any blonde in your hair from highlights or balayage. 

Ultimately, using the right products helps me to go longer between visits, and I often get asked if I just got my hair highlighted...two or three months after my last hair appointment! So, I truly swear by these products (and none of this is sponsored).

Giovanni 2chic moisturizing shampoo and conditioner with avocado and olive oil
Moisturizing Shampoo + Conditioner
I've talked about this Giovanni 2chic duo before (in this drugstore hair product post), and still love them as much as ever! Having baby fine hair, I've always been pretty scared of moisturizing shampoos and conditioners because over the years many have left me with a really chic wet dog look. Limp = not cute (haha). But these don't weight down my hair at all! Instead they give me shiny and moisturized hair from the avocado and olive oil ingredients! These definitely help to balance out color and heat damage, and it also doesn't hurt that they're only about $7 each (I usually purchase at Walgreens, but you can find this brand at Target, Wal-mart and Amazon too).

Joico Blonde Life - brightens blonde hair

Brightening Shampoo + Conditioner (c/o Joico) 
You can ask my mom, sister, or any of my friends, but I've been a huge fan of Joico since high school. Their products just agree with my hair and have truly worked wonders on split ends, color and heat damage, and just overall hair health over the years. Their new Blonde Life line makes my hair so bright and shiny! I've found that it doesn't tone my hair, but really does give it that just-out-of-the-salon brightness/lightness.

Joico purple shampoo & conditioner - great for toning blonde hair

If you have blonde hair or simply any blonde in your hair, you neeeeed a purple shampoo + conditioner in your life! When I first started going blonde, I was so frustrated that my hair was pulling so warm and brassy. I really wanted that cool, light blonde I saw all over Instagram and Pinterest. Purple shampoo is the way to get that (beyond asking your colorist for cool blonde & to use toner)! I've tried 4-5 different purple shampoo/conditioner sets now, and this one by Joico is by far my favorite so far. Purple shampoos and conditioners tend to be really drying, but these are the least drying I've tried, while also toning really effectively and giving me that cool, platinum blonde look.

Deep Conditioners + Masks
Beyond my rotation on shampoos and conditioners, I love to use a deep conditioner or mask 1-2 times a week for some extra moisture and shine. These are some of my favorites: 

Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil Deep Moisture Mask

I used this long before the shampoo and conditioner from the same line, and love how the avocado and olive oil make my hair glossy and shiny without weighing it down. I love to coat this on the ends of my hair while I shave my legs!

Joico K-Pak Intense Hydrator

These is a classic deep conditioning treatment for damaged hair and for good reason. It's such a big help if you have split ends or any damage from heat styling or coloring your hair. I've used this since high school and swear by it!

Hask Greek Yogurt Masks

These were an impulse buy for me at Walgreens because they're only a couple of dollars, and I've ended up LOVING them! One pouch actually lasts me 5-6 uses (although I don't have a ton of hair), and there is a noticeable difference in my hair after using them. 

Joico Blonde Life Brightening Mask (c/o Joico)

My brightening shampoo & conditioner typically do the trick, but if my hair starts looking a little dull I like to use this once in awhile. 

Have you tried any of these? What products do you swear by for blonde hair? Let me know! xx
