The folks over at Hession Hairdressing have put together some handy hints on how to achieve Giuliana Rancic’s new and improved hairstyle so I said I would share it with you lot today.

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 Shampooand 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. Read on »
I had high hopes for this shampoo as I am a massive fan of their dry shampoo for blonde hair. Unfortunately this product is one you are best off avoiding. Its the first budget purple shampoo that I have tried and I am genuinely unimpressed. I used it four times in the interest of fairness but each time my hair was left a dry, knotty mess and that was after intensively conditioning my hair AND adding an argan oil styling product. I even tried diluting the shampoo with a regular shampoo but my hair was still left extremely dry. As a result I actually broke some of my hair trying to brush it. Major fail. Read on »
I picked this product up in my local Shaws Department Store. (On a side note, why Boots have not opened a Carlow branch is beyond me. They would make a fortune from the ladies in my office alone). This product cost about a fiver as far as I can remember. Read on »
I decided to do a series of posts on the best and worst purple shampoos and products for blonde hair on the market as being a bleach blonde is hard work and expensive! I think everyone with blonde hair or highlights should have a bottle of purple shampoo in the shower as it really takes the brassiness out of blonde hair. There is nothing worse than having that horrible Yellow Hair. I have The Fear of it altogether. Read on »
