We're Obsessed With The Milkshake Hair Trend

When it comes to salon blonde, we love switching up our color—so much so that we've tried every shade in the blonde color spectrum from ash blonde to sand hair color. If you’re not up for drastic color transformations (and all of the salon visits that come with it), however, we have great news! Milkshake hair color is the quick way to give your current blonde hue a quick refresh. 

Interested in milkshake hair color? Get ready to call your colorist. We’re about to tell you how to get the glossiest blonde of your life. 

What is milkshake hair color?

As much as we love our ash blonde hues to be light and bright, the constant bleaching and toning needed to maintain the color can take a serious toll on your strands. Milkshake hair color is a soft wash of blonde hair color applied to color-treated hair that leaves your strands with high shine without the use of bleach.

Wondering how you can try milkshake hair color for yourself? Meet L'Oréal Professionnel’s Dialight Milkshake line! The curated line for cool-toned blondes is a way to give your color-treated strands a quick wash of color and shine—no lifting required!

With the Dialight Milkshake shades, your colorist will gloss, tone, and refresh your color-treated strands in one step. Whether you’re working with champagne strands or white hair color, your colorist can create a custom formula specifically for you using the 13 shades included in the line. The effects will last up to six weeks—so if you’re hoping to stretch the time between touch-up appointments, you’re going to want to ask for this color service!

What is the maintenance like for milkshake hair color?

The Dialight Milkshake service is only the first step to keeping your hue looking it’s absolute best. You’re also going to need to stock up on color-protecting hair products. First, we recommend swapping out your regular system for a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated strands like the L'Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A-Ox range to help maintain color radiance. A purple shampoo is also essential to keep your ash blonde hue from becoming brassy over time. We recommend the L'Oréal Professionnel Magnesium Silver Shampoo to neutralize unwanted yellow tones. The key to maintaining cool-toned blonde is to keep your mane looking and feeling as healthy as possible, so add a weekly hair mask to your routine like the L'Oréal Professionnel Blondifier Mask.

Now that you’re equipped with all there is to know about milkshake hair color, you’re ready to head to the salon. If you’re a cool-toned blonde, this is a must-try!
