Get the Right Shampoo
If you have blonde hair it’s a good idea to wash it once a week with a purple shampoo. The colour purple is directly opposite yellow on a colour chart.

It’s best to choose a shampoo that uses natural ingredients and won’t dry your hair out. That’s why it’s so important to read the labels on all products; You really want to avoid anything with sulphates or silicones in.
The Right Tools
