Beach? Bleach? Baby? Bottle? Whichever sort of blonde you are, you probably know all about fighting the frizz and battling the brassiness. The same is also true for all the silver-haired sirens too – whether you’ve chosen to embrace going grey, or your platinum hue comes from a bottle.

For those who are naturally rocking the silvery strands, there’s a good chance that you’ve noticed your hair changing as you get older. Many find that it gets drier, while others notice it gets a bit thinner.

The good news though is that with the right products, a great cut and flattering colour, there’s no reason why your hair won’t stay looking luscious and lovely, however old you are. Here’s how…

1. The kindest cut

There’s no doubt about it, a good haircut can change your life. You walk into the salon stressed and exhausted and an hour later you’re striding confidently out the door ready to take on the world.

Okay, that’s partly down to the magical effects of a bit of me-time pampering and a slick professional blow-dry, but a lot of it is about sharpening up your look, nailing a trend you like, or simply rediscovering your best features with a clever new shape.

Don’t be afraid to shake things up and try something new. You can get advice from your trusted stylist on this, but always remember that there are no rules. If you want long tresses into your 70s and beyond, then go for it!

2. The right colour

Great colour can take years of your face, and it’s all about finding what’s right for you. You might decide to embrace your grey, colour your hair at home or go the salon.

If you do opt to have your colour done professionally, it’s best to avoid single-process colour treatments as they tend to look too severe. Add soft highlights or lowlights to break up your hair instead.

Whatever hair colour you’re going for – whether you’re considering the lightest blonde or a funky unicorn pink – the simplest way to choose colour that works is to look at the tones in your skin and see what complements. Again, your stylist will be able to offer advice.

And once you’ve settled on the right colour, it’s important to keep it looking its best. Wash it with Aussie Blonde Hydration Purple Shampoo and Aussie Blonde Hydration Hair Conditioner for great results.

The kick-brass shampoo neutralises brassy, yellow tones with a powerful purple pigment, and nourishes fried hair with Australian Hemp Seed and Wild Plum extracts. These two ingredients are also in the conditioner to provide a much-needed boost of hydration and shine. Together, they will leave hair boosted, hydrated and bright.

For those days when your hair needs an extra boost, treat it to Aussie Blonde Hydration 3 Minute Miracle Hair Mask. This super conditioner is packed with hydrating natural Australian Hemp Seed extract, special botanicals and an extra kick of wicked Wild Plum to give you the deepest condition of your life, taking you from bleached-out to blissed-out in just three minutes.

3. Use great products

As you get older, your hair texture can change, feeling frizzier and rougher, especially once your greys start to come through. Using a leave-in product after washing and conditioning your hair, or as and when you need it, can work wonders, and make it feel smoother and softer.

A lightweight hydrating spray, Aussie Blonde Hair Hemp-athy Conditioning Leave-in Spray is a miracle worker. Packed with Australian Hemp Seed extract, the no-rinse formula gives the ultimate glow-up. Or you can use Aussie Blonde Hydration Lightweight Hair Oil on wet, damp or dry hair for an extra dose of nourishment.

4. Hair ‘rest’ days

The biggest favour you can do for your hair is to let it dry naturally sometimes, as nothing encourages snapping, frizzing and split ends more than a daily dose of harsh heat. So skip the blow-dryer, straighteners or curling tongs whenever you can.
