Blonde and Blonder: Results and More...

Sorry about the late update on my Blonde quest. I was a bit blonde and completely forgot to take a picture of my hair before I dyed it ... Doh! ... But nontheless, I am still not the colour I want and so I am making use of some new products. I re-purchased the Lee Stafford Bleach Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner which I blogged about earlier in the year, and alongside it I purchased the Hot Shots 4 Blondes.


Bleach Blondes Shampoo £6.19, Bleach Blondes Conditioner £6.19,
Hot Shots 4 Blondes Shampoo Treatment £7.19.

I read good reviews about them on the Boots website and so decided to give them a go to neutralise the yellow and orange tones my hair has where the Lightening Spray didn't have much effect and so resulted in a odd colour when I dyed it.(I used the new John Frieda Precision Foam Colour in 10B)


After colouring and before the treatment.

The product is a 'self-warming, ash shampoo' which turns yellow tones more ashy, which is what I hoped for! I used it after shampooing as directed and have seen a slight difference. I have only used one treatment however, and I knew it wasn't going to be an instant fix, so I am still impressed.



The actual product comes in a small tube and is purple, as you'd expect, with a really glittery sparkle to it which surprised me. When using it, the whole product is pretty hard to get out and there seems to be a lot of wasteage which is quite annoying as they are £7.19 for three, saying that I did manage to get two washes out of the one tube. The application was great, it foamed up really nicely making it easy to make sure I had all my hair coated, however in my opinion it didn't self "warm". It had a cooling, tingly, menthol effect which lasted after washing out and drying my hair.

After one tube split over two washes.

Overall, it is a nice product. I am unsure at this point whether I would reccomend it, as the difference at the roots isn't that noticeable. It did however give me some really white-blonde and ashy highlights in the lighter areas of my hair which I really like. I just think that the shampoo does equally a good a job at colour correcting so I sort of feel this treatment is unecessary.

What are your favourite purple colour correcting products?

Hope you've all had a great day,
Much Love
