Being a not-so-natural blonde takes a lot of maintenance. If you are like me and lighten your hair, you know that the struggle is real! Blonde hair and highlights take work in between appointments. Blonde hair can dull, fade, turn brassy and if you go in the pool or use the wrong products, it can even turn shades of green or orange. I've been using just one product that is helping me boost my blonde (or refresh it) by using it just one or twice a week.
I've simply been replacing my normal shampoo with Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo once or twice a week to refresh my blonde hair while enhancing my highlights. The formulation is specially colored to balance pigment and to help condition and add much-needed moisture, vibrancy and luminosity to my color-treated hair.
The shampoo is violet colored so don't let that shock you, but that's how it works. It's gentle, but only designed to be used once or twice a week or it can discolor your hair. I use it once a week in the winter, but twice a week in the summer when I'm in the sun more and it's subject to turning too brassy.
Clairol Shimmer Lights is not only great for blondes, it is made for gray hair too. The formula is made to do so much:
- tone down brassiness
- renew and refresh faded highlights and ash-tones
- reduce the visible green shade which can be deposited on blonde hair by excessive amounts of chlorine
- remove dull yellow from gray/white hair
- leave hair shiny without residue
