I should take before and after pictures more often because I would have SWORN this product did absolutely nothing for my hair when in fact the pictures tell quite another story. Blonde hair is hard work, constant upkeep, expensive salon appointments.. I have tried too many blue shampoos and toners to mention but when this was on sale at Feel Unique a few weeks ago I decided to give it a go. I’d heard good things about the L’Oreal blue shampoo but I’ve since learned this is not the one people rave about.. it’s okay but not the uber special one apparently.. so now that’s on my list.
I’m usually a Touch Of Silver girl but that tends to dry out my hair, I don’t love the smell and this time around I’ve been treating my hair to some more expensive products so I liked the idea of switching it up with a slightly more pro formula. I will say that the scent of this is considerabley more appealing and it’s much more gentle on my hair but it’s nowhere near as effective. I left this on for an hour.. if I did that with Touch Of Silver Twice Weekly Brightening Shampoo my hair would be blue! This was more effort, I had to wash my hair seperately, leave it in, rinse it out, blah blah blah. I’m a low maintenance gal so it didn’t really suit me as it was but the fact that I didn’t feel it had done anything, I was ready to put it in my ‘drawer of things I’ll use up when I run out of everything else’ until I saw these pictures. I will definitely have to take more time with it but given that I did feel it was kinder to my hair I will keep using this.
I’m not sure I will repurchase when it’s finished.. I have since had some recommendations (Fudge apparently do a good one) that I want to try but I wont be relegating it just yet. I still have my trust Touch Of Silver for those times I need a quick blast of de-brassing but if I have the time to pamper myself this will get an outing. Looking at these pictures makes me desperate for another T-Section of highlights though.. I’m still not rid of the darker dye in the to section and from certain angles my hair appears to be two totally different colours.. I’ve considered the notion it was in my mind but these photos at least told me I wasn’t mad *calls hairdresser*
