If you read this blog regularly then you may know that Stylingo HQ is soon to be a house exclusively of blondes. I’ve just taken my mid-blonde hair bleached blonde again, and Lauren’s going through the slow process of going from brunette to blonde (though one hair dye mishap has meant she’s now back at dark brown – no, we’re not entirely sure how that happened either).
One consequence of our blonder way of life – apart from the fact that we’ll probably have to start living with some old geezer in a dressing gown a la the Playboy mansion – is that we need to get SERIOUSLY SERIOUS about our hair care now. Everyone knows that blonde hair needs a lot more love and attention to keep it in top condition (or at the very least, to stop you resembling Worzel Gummidge). This is why I was very excited when the amazing people at John Frieda sent over this shampoo and conditioner for us to try.
The Everlasting Blonde shampoo and conditioner are part of their wider range for blonde hair. I never realised quite how extensive this range is – it’s safe to say that Johnny F’s got everything covered for blondes. As well as hairsprays and mousse specially designed to make blonde hair shimmer, there are also shampoos and conditioners to lighten the hair itself – which I can only assume is made with some sort of wizardry.
The Everlasting Blonde Colour Preserving shampoo and conditioner is designed to stop blonde hair from fading while still keeping it in good condition. These retail at around £5.99 each; at one time, I would have balked (oh what a wondrous word) at the thought of spending this on shampoo. But thinking about it, whenever I use a conditioner that’s cost me about £2 I end up using half the bottle just to feel like it’s doing anything to my hair – whereas with only a little bit of this John Frieda one you can notice the difference straight away. Beware of false economy, lads and lasses.
Both of these products feel really luxurious to use and left my hair feeling so much softer than it usually does. The bottles are also huge and I didn’t have to use much at all, so I’m very excited about how long these will last me!
If anybody’s after any more information on John Frieda products or want to pick up some expert tips then they also have a YouTube channel that’s very handy indeed.
What do you all think of John Frieda? Do you think more expensive brands are worth it?
