Common Mistakes With Dirty Blonde Hair


I’ve been dyeing my hair blonde since I was 18 (and the first time it actually came out right was when I turned 19). In that time, I’ve learned a lot about the best possible ways to take care of your dirty blonde locks. Whether you’re just starting out or have been coloring your hair for years, these tips will help you keep them looking their best!

Trying to Get Your Roots Done by Yourself

Dirty blonde hair can be damaged by overusing shampoo and conditioner. You’ll want to use the right products, however, or you’ll end up with an unnatural shade of blonde with dull roots. Plus, if you’re not careful about how often you wash your hair and what products are used in between washes, it could lead to dryness or breakage at the roots.

The best way for someone who wants dirty blonde hair but doesn’t have any experience doing so is by hiring a professional stylist who knows exactly what they’re doing when it comes down to this type of service!

Not Using the Right Products

  • Don’t use shampoo on dirty blonde hair. The first time you do this, it’s going to feel like a nightmare—your hair looks like it’s been through a war and your scalp is covered in dirt. But this is actually where you want to be: your natural color will be highlighted by the warm hues of the dirty blonde dye job, so don’t worry about being too light or too dark!
  • Don’t use conditioner on dirty blonde hair (or any other kind of color). The conditioner strips out some of that deep pigment from the root area and makes it look duller than usual. If you have long enough strands that need extra moisture after shampooing out all those extra chemicals from your previous dyesubstitute products (which usually contain ammonia), then apply regular conditioner after washing off those old dyesubstitute formulas from earlier this week—they’ll still strip away some of those same chemicals but won’t affect how shiny/deeply pigmented your new shades look when applied directly onto dry strands without any additional moisturizing treatment beforehand.”

Not Washing Your Hair Enough or Washing Too Much

  • Don’t wash your hair every day. If you have dirty blonde hair, it’s important that you don’t wash it too often. This can cause the color to fade and wash away, which is why we recommend not washing your locks more than once a week—or even looking at a mirror every other day!
  • Don’t shampoo too much either: Dry shampoo can help extend the time between washes by helping keep oil at bay for longer than regular shampoos do. This will also keep your scalp healthy so there aren’t any nasty build-ups of product residue on top of all that dead skin cells from being constantly washed away from its natural oils (which would otherwise clog up drains).

Forgetting to Dry Shampoo

If you have dirty blonde hair, it’s a good idea to use dry shampoo. Dry shampoo will help you extend the time between washes by absorbing excess oils and keeping your hair looking fresh and clean.

Clean shampoos should be used once or twice a week if your scalp isn’t oily (and if you don’t have dandruff). But if you do get any greasy build up on your scalp, try using this product once every three days instead of daily—that should be enough time for built-up oil to be absorbed into the strands properly before its next wash day!

Using Products That Are Too Strong

If you think a product is too strong, try using it on a less-than-damaged section of hair. If your hair still looks pretty good and you want to use the product again, then go ahead and do so! But if your ends look kind of frizzy or damaged after applying the product all over your head, then cut back on how much you use.

  • Try diluting it with water or another conditioner before applying it to dry hair (this will help get rid of any residue from previous products).
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions about what might be causing this problem for other people! You might find that there’s nothing wrong with what they’re using—just maybe not enough moisture in their routine?

If you want to keep your dirty blonde hair healthy and shiny, you need to make sure you’re using products designed for it.

Here are some of the most important things to consider when choosing a shampoo or conditioner for blonde hair:

  • The shade of your color should match the shade of the product (if it’s too dark, then use a lighter-shade shampoo; if it’s too light, use a darker-shade shampoo).
  • Your scalp type will determine which products are right for you. If there’s any scalp oiliness or dandruff on your head—especially in armpits—it may be best not to try washing with sulfate-based shampoos unless they’re specifically formulated as clarifying agents (in which case they’ll probably include salicylic acid). Sulfate removes buildup from sebum production; however, this can leave residue behind on dry skin around fingernails and toes—not good news if those areas need moisturization!
