How to Take Care of Your Summer Blond Hair
During the summer months, blond hair requires extra TLC. The sun, sea and chlorine can dehydrate your strands leaving them prone to breakage, the sun’s UV rays can damage your hair (just like it can our skin), while these environmental aggressors can also turn your salon-fresh blond color into a brassy yellow.

Start the summer season and bolster your hair with an in-salon Fusio Dose treatment. Our iconic service starts with a hair diagnosis and consultation and tackles two hair concerns, for blonds this is often lack of nourishment, as well as brittleness. Come the end of summer, a Fusio Dose treatment can repair any damage and restore your hair’s vitality, softness and shine.

At home there are two Kerastase collections that are particularly beneficial for blonds during the summer. Blond Absolu was formulated especially for all blonds including those who lighten their hair. The products contain a potent combination of hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Edelweiss flower that deeply nourishes and protects the strands, whilst the addition in some of the products (like the shampoo and masques) of purple pigments neutralises brassiness for an illuminated, fresh-looking blond color every day.

In the range, you’ll also find a clear hair oil. Did you know golden-hued oils can stain brilliant blond strands? The oil seals split ends, smoothes the strands and offers heat protection up to 230°C.
