So you may have noticed that in the last month or two, my hair has somewhat changed. My hair hasn't been its natural colour for years - it's seen light brown, dark brown, red, purple, ginger... - and I decided a while back that I wanted to get closer to my natural colour; albeit, a little lighter.
My go-to hairdressers let me down immensely. And I promise not to bore you with the sob (yes, actual tears) story. Let's just say I'll never be going back. Instead, I decided to take matters into my own hands with two products - and this is the result:
From the advice of a colleague, I bought Colour B4 - a product that gets rid of your dyed colour. I was actually amazed. It made my hair so much lighter and although this wouldn't be the case for everybody, I didn't even need to put another colour on top. A little while after using it, I noticed a product range called Go Blonder by John Frieda, which I'd probably scoffed at before. It contains citrus and chamomile which both lighten your hair when combined with heat. I wash my hair as normal, apply this lightening spray once it's towel-dried and then blow-dry my hair. Done.
I'm so chuffed with the outcome that I thought I'd share it with you - just in case there are any of you out there who, like me, fancied lighter hair for summer but didn't quite have the cash to pull it off.
P.S. My hair actually looks even blonder than it does in that current photograph.
P.P.S. I do have the strongest urge to walk past my hairdressers and scream "Up Yours!"
