Here’s our guide to giving your blonde locks the bespoke care they deserve.

Blonding is a high-maintenance undertaking which can leave your locks feeling dry, brittle and damaged. This is why post-bleach care is so crucial, from choosing the right shampoo to following an appropriate routine.

Leading the way in advanced hair science for over 50 years, Kérastase have developed custom blonde-care regimes to keep your beloved tresses strong, shiny and soft. Whatever your hair type, length or texture, there’s a bespoke Kérastase blonde ritual for you.

Blond Absolu, Now Starring NEW Cicaextreme – Extreme Care for Bleached Hair

Made with the finest ingredients, this range’s formulas work to replenish vital moisture, strength and radiance as well as protecting your locks from environmental damage. The result? Shiny, healthy-looking hair.

Completing (and complementing) the Blond Absolu range is the NEW Cicaextreme collection. Enriched with edelweiss oil and hyaluronic acid duo technology. This latest innovation from Kérastase’s Cicaextreme expertly restores and recovers dry and brittle bleached hair, bringing it back to life.

By combining different products from the blockbuster Blond Absolu range, you can create a perfectly personalised routine that suits your individual hair needs, even for the most daring blondes.

Mixing & Matching: The Perfect Blonde Care Routine

Figuring out your ideal blonde ritual can be dauting, but Kérastase and #TeamGorgeous are here to help. Here’s our complete guide to finding the best regime for your fair locks.

Kérastase Routine for Sun-Kissed Blondes

Kérastase Regime for Sun-Kissed Blonde Hair

Use Bain Lumiére as your daily shampoo to keep your blonde looking bright and hydrated. Follow with Cicaflash conditioner to intensely condition and smooth your locks. Finish your routine with Cicaplasme, a lightweight serum which provides heat protection as well as softeness and shine.

For an extra boost of care, treat your hair to serum Cicanuit, an overnight blonde recovery serum to help restore and recover your bleached hair while you sleep – and there’s no need to rinse it off in the morning.

If you’re looking to banish unwanted yellow tones, use the Kérastase Blond Absolu Bain Ultra-Violet once a week (or as often as needed).

Kérastase Routine for Curly Bleached Hair

Curly hair can be extra fragile post bleaching, given its susceptibility to dryness and frizz.

Use the gentle Bain Cicaextreme to cleanse your hair. With a rich, creamy texture, this formula helps to strengthen, moisturise and restore curly bleached hair. If you’ve got unwanted brassiness, use the Bain Ultra-Violet once a week (or as often as needed) to eliminate yellow tones.

Follow the application of shampoo with the Masque Cicaextreme for intense restoring conditioning.

Once you’ve showered, finish your routine with the luscious Huile Cicaextreme hair oil to protect your hair from heat and add a boost of shine.

Take your haircare regime to the next level with the Serum Cicanuit for overnight recovery. A nourishing formula, this serum hydrates and fortifies your tresses while you sleep.

Kérastase Routine for Bleached Hair with Natural Dark Base

Darker hair requires more bleaching to achieve your ideal blonde – and this can weaken the hair, leaving it prone to dryness and breakage.

Use the ultra-moisturising Kérastase Blond Absolu Bain Cicaextreme daily to gently cleanse and hydrate your locks. Rich yet lightweight, this shampoo has the caring power of an intense mask.

Follow the application of shampoo with Cicaflash, a smoothing and strengthening conditioner formulated for blonde hair.

Once you’re out of the shower, apply the Huile Cicaextreme hair oil to protect your lengths and ends from heat as well as add softness and shine. 

For overnight care, make sure to use the Serum Cicanuit 3-4 times a week – this helps restore and recover bleached hair while you sleep.

When your locks need some extra TLC, treat them to the luxurious Masque Cicaextreme, which provides intense nourishment and hydration.

Kérastase Routine for Highlighted Blondes

Start your daily routine with the Bain Lumiere, a super hydrating and illuminating shampoo that keeps your blonde hair bright and strong. If you’re wanting to banish unwanted orange and yellow tones, use the purple shampoo Bain Ultra-Violet as often as needed.

Follow the application of shampoo with the Masque Cicaextreme, a ultra-restoring mask to recover your blonde boost of hydration and nourishment.

After towel-drying your hair, apply Cicaplasme – this lightweight serum offers heat protection as well as providing long-lasting shine.

Harness the healing power of the night with Serum Cicanuit, an overnight-recovery formula which recovers damaged, dry and brittle locks whilst you sleep. Use 3-4 times a week – and wake up to silky soft hydrated blonde hair every time.
