For the blondes amongst you I am sure you all face the struggle to keep your locks more like the lady from the Timotei ad rather than Lisa Simpsons spiky yellow tresses. The battle against the yellow (or brassiness) is something all blonde ladies struggle with; you can’t just use any supermarket brand and hope for the best. Blonde hair is a big old pain in the arse to care for; but when done well nothing beats it! (For the record after years and years of being Peroxide I have now stepped over to the dark side; well the light brown side to be precise).
So you blonde lovelies, I bring you the cheap and cheerful range from Provoke, Touch of Silver, with a product to suit most needs! I have reviewed some of the range already; please do check out my take on the Shampoo and on the Dry shampoo.I’m currently using the Glamour Hairspray and I love it! Doesn’t leave the hair sticky, its easy to brush out and it provides great hold! Watch this space for a full review on it. As you can tell from my reviews the twice a week shampoo didn’t cut the mustard for me but the dry shampoo is excellent.I currently have another blonde haired guinea pig putting the rest of the range to the test and will report back in due course. In the meantime the folk over at Provoke have put together a handy guide to keep the yellow at bay, Hurrah! Check it out below.
Step 1: Brighten
To bring out the sparkle and intensity in jaded hair, use Twice A Week Brightening Shampoo (RRP €4.06), this colour correcting shampoo works to neutralise yellow tones. Just two applications a week is enough to keep brassiness at bay.
Step 2: Maintain
To help maintain silver tones and avoid colour build up use Daily Maintenance Shampoo (RRP €3.04)at regular intervals. Its gentle cleansing formula contains UV absorber & Sunflower Seed Extract to safeguard your colour for fresh, healthy, great looking hair.
Step 3: Nourish
Restore moisture, softness and shine with Daily Nourish Conditioner(RRP€3.04). Its creamy protective formula helps repair damaged hair by infusing extra moisture to give hair an improved smooth and silky texture.
