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.

Technically this product is suitable for any hair in distress but I felt I had to include it as it came to my rescue when I had a particularly disastrous home dye situation.
A couple of years back I did the stupidest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. I dyed my hair brown, by myself, at home. I looked completely ridiculous and after a month decided enough was enough and wanted to go back blonde.
