How To Care for (Faux) Blonde Hair
Blonde is more than a look. It is a statement. Being a blonde bombshell is exhilarating. But bleaching the hair leaves it vulnerable to dryness. Colour fades and loses its unique tone. Meet Blond Absolu, the ultra-violet healing hair care that preserves the bright look and bold spirit of the modern blonde.
Going blonde is exhilarating. But stripping the hair leaves it naked and vulnerable. Blond Absolu provides healing care for hair that is 97% stronger and 92% more hydrated, with instant colour neutralising for 8x more luminous blonde.
Why go blonde?
Blonde is pure and vulnerable, yet bold and daring, irresistible. Blonde is everything and nothing, all at once. Oh, and have you heard blondes have more fun? What’s not fun is the drying, devitalising effect bleaching can have on the hair, colour fading and yellow, brassy tones popping up. But those are no longer concerns…
Blonde is not one look. It is unlimited, an infinite spectrum. From ice white, to buttery blonde, to sun-bathed locks and brightened “bronde”. There’s a different blonde for every woman, for every hair type, for every season, every mood.
…for those who dare.
No one understands blonding better than the women who have dared to do it, and no one understands care better than Kérastase. Which is why we brought together a collective of nine independent women who do blonde in totally different ways. Their concerns, their deepest blonde desires inspired us to create the ultimate range for blonde care.
Blondes demand the best.
We found that every faux-blonde has her own feelings and philosophies about the colour and how it sparks her soul. One thing they all have in common? None of them want to choose between gorgeous blonde and healthy, opulent hair. They want it all. And they want it fresh—no fading or veering into brassy territory.
All of the fun, none of risk.
It’s that demand for excellence and individuality that inspired us to create Blond Absolu, the ultimate care for faux blonde hair. We’ve revolutionised blonding care with six products to combine in customised rituals for bathing, treating and texturising hair. The fibres are deeply healed and restored by hyaluronic acid and edelweiss sauvage. Ultra-violet neutralisers tone down brassiness and illuminate your desired blonde. Hair is silky, with the long-lasting feeling of “virgin” fibres.
