Blondes are known to boast naturally effervescent personalities, to be wittier and more charming than your average gal, and to carry themselves in a friendly and approachable manner that’s simply lovely to be around. After all, we can name a handful of Southern queens who just wouldn’t be the same without their signature platinum shade. (Reese? Dolly? Looking at you!) Truly, we think it’s no coincidence that blonde-haired beauties seem to carry a bit of sunshine wherever they go.
We believe there’s certain power associated with gorgeous golden locks sitting atop your head, but we also know that upkeep of blonde hair is a commitment and a responsibility that is not to be taken lightly—especially if you were naturally born on the 'dark side'. As they say: with great power comes great responsibility. Although the true power of a blonde lies under the head of hair, a few products exist on the beauty market that the blonde community can’t seem to get enough of. There are certain secrets that natural and not-so-natural blondes know to give your color that extra oomph between salon visits, and we’re here to spill every last one of them.
Amidst ages-old (and frankly, antiquated) ‘dumb blonde’ jokes, we’re willing to bet you’ll be getting the last laugh after adding these products to the equation for gorgeous hair. In the words of our Southern sister, Dolly Parton: “I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb…and I also know that I’m not blonde.” Don’t worry, Dolly. Your secret is safe with us.
