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
You probably spend a fortune, not to mention a lot of time, on your hair color. You need to protect it from fading, of course. The best way to do that is with a sulfate-free shampoo. There is a new sulfate-free duo from Yes To made just for this. Meet Yes to Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo & Conditioner.
This effective duo is formulated with Sunflower, which nourish and strengthens hair follicles, and Aloe to moisturize the damage that's been done by coloring. Hair feels thick when using and looks more healthy and shiny. Most importantly, I've been using these for two weeks since coloring my hair and it looks just as good as it did when I walked out of the salon. It smells super fresh too.
