Why is my blonde hair turning yellow and how do I fix it?

If you have blonde hair, you may have noticed that sometimes it can start to turn yellow. This can be frustrating and confusing, especially if you are doing everything you can to maintain your blonde locks!
To give you some piece of mind, here are a few possible reasons why your blonde hair may be turning yellow:
1. Hard Water

Hard water can be a culprit for yellowing blonde hair. This is because hard water is high in minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can build up on the hair and cause it to look yellow. If you live in an area with hard water, you may want to invest in a shower head filter to help reduce the mineral buildup.

2. Chemicals

Chemicals in your everyday life may also be contributing to yellowing hair. Chlorine from swimming pools or hot tubs, as well as pollutants in the air, can all impact the colour of your hair.  

3. Grocery Store Bought Hair Products

The hair products you use can also contribute to yellowing hair. If you use products with sulphates or harsh chemicals, they can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause it to become dry and brittle. This dryness can lead to yellowing hair. Additionally, products with heavy silicones can also cause a buildup on the hair, leading to discolouration.

4. Heat Styling

Heat styling tools can also contribute to yellowing hair. If you are using a flat iron, curling iron, or blow dryer on a regular basis, you may be drying out your hair and contributing to discolouration. Consider cutting down on heat styling and using a heat protectant spray when you do use heat tools.

Now that we've given you the possible reasons, here is our top solution and hair regime for preventing your blonde turning yellow! 



Step 1: Using a detoxing shampoo 

If you want to maintain healthy hair and scalp, K18 Peptide Prep Detox Shampoo is an effective cleansing formula that does the job perfectly. This shampoo is adept at removing impurities by deeply cleansing the hair and scalp. It works by unclogging hair follicles and eliminating dirt, oils, metals, and residue from hair care products to leave you with shiny, revitalised hair. 

Step 2: Using a hydrating blonde toning treatment or conditioner 

Once you've eliminated any impurities from your hair, revitalising your blonde hue with a toning treatment or conditioner is crucial. This type of treatment can help eliminate any brassy tones caused by factors like hard water, pollution, or excessive product use, and give your hair beautiful shine and bright blonde tone.
