Blonde and Blonder...

You may remember that I posted earlier on in the year with some blonde saving products. Well as summer is creeping up on us, I feel that now is the time to venture back into being a true blonde. I've been sporting the gradient blonde hair for the best part of winter now and really feel that summer is the time to change this!


I decided that I should dye my hair, but given my past home dye 'orange roots' disasters, I wimped out and stumbled across this product.

The range of uses for the product
and expected results.

Sheer Blonde: Go Blonder
£6.99 Boots



This is the John Frieda Sheer Blonde, Go Blonder Lightening Spray. I bought this after watching MakeupByTiffanyD, and noticed she'd mentioned it A LOT! After a few doubts about the range, with some people showing a bad reaction to the formula of the shampoo and conditioner range, I decided that I should give it a go anyway and hope that I wasn't one that would be affected.

Basically, the product comes in a spray which contains Hydrogen Peroxide. It smells slightly bleach like, but not overly so don't panic, it does however warn about spraying on surfaces as discolouration may occur. It is activated by heat from hair drying and straightening and will permanently dye the hair. It claims to be able to be used to lighten the whole head of hair, create highlights or touch-up roots. I hope that it will even out my roots into the rest of my hair, so I will eventually be able to home dye it.
So queue the bad roots shot:

So as you can see, I have pretty dark roots in comparison to the rest of my hair. I have a very multi-tonal colour and hopefully this will even everything out and create some lovely 'sunkissed' highlights along the way.

The directions state that it should be effective from 3-5 uses, with optimal colouring after 10, so I will be keeping you updated with hopefully less embarrassing photos of my roots at Day 3, 5 and 10. Wish me luck!

What are your thoughts on the Go Blonder range?
