With Game of Thrones finally back in our lives again, it’s safe to still say that Daenerys Targaryen is one blonde badass we can totally get behind. Not only does she have flawless skin, killer brows, and an army at her command, but Khaleesi has enviable platinum blonde hair that would make anyone jealous. We all can’t be the Mother of Dragons, but fellow blondes like Daenerys can keep their hair glossy and vibrant by shampooing less and using purple-tinted products to help fight brassiness. Keeping your hair Daenerys-fresh also requires using the right styling tools as well.
“Treat your blonde hair as you would treat a cashmere sweater,” Beth Minardi, hair color icon and creative director of Beth Minardi Signature Color tells HelloGiggles. “Avoid metal brushes and combs, and don’t comb conditioner through the hair — use your separated fingers. Rinse thoroughly.”
To keep your hair looking like you stepped out of the House of Targaryen, here are 19 products to help keep your blonde color sparkling and vibrant.
