Maintaining lightened hair doesn’t have to be difficult. Rather than scour the shelves in search of the best color-safe formulas, why not stick with no-fuss, easy-to-use products specifically formulated to get the job done? The first step is to swap your run-of-the-mill toning shampoo for Redken Color Extend Blondage Color Depositing Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. Designed to be used 1-2 times a week at most, this toning shampoo contains a powerful blend of amino, citric and maleic acids and wheat proteins to eliminate unwanted brassy or yellow undertones, strengthen the hair cuticle and add mega-shine. But your color care shouldn’t stop there.

To achieve the brightest blonde possible, apply the Redken Color Extend Vinegar Rinse once a week to purify, smooth and condition your hair. Formulated with citric acid and apple cider vinegar to strengthen and cleanse the hair without stripping it of its natural oils, the Redken Color Extend Vinegar Rinse instantly freshens up your color and restores shine. To use, simply apply the product to your hair after shampooing and leave it on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse to reveal bright and glossy color.
