As you may have noticed, I have a lot of white hair . I confess that I opted for the simple option that is to do highlights (a lot of them, really). If you didn’t read my post about it, then check it here.
Right after doing my highlights I always feel my hair a little bit drier (mostly the ends)and after some weeks I like to use a shampoo with a blue/violet pigment, to maintain the ash shade and don’t obtain a not-so-mellow yellow shade. Fortunaltly, my hairdresser always accomplish the tone that I like, so I only need to use that type of shampoo once per month. I’m mentioning this because this type of shampoo is great to keep the color but awfull to dry hair.
But on one of my many visits to Sephora, I saw the John Frieda products on a shelf. They have a lot of shampoos, conditioners, masks and styling products. Impulsively I bought the Blonde Sheer Mask.
I was using the blonde range by Joico and I loved it!! But it was almost over and I didn’t want to spend more 50€. I wanted to find something a little more affordable.
The blonde sheer mask by John Frieda comes in a jar with 250mL and it cost 10€. It’s indicated for people with blonde, bleached hair or with highlights.
Honestly when I came home I googled the blond line of care and I read so many bad reviews about the shampoo/conditioner that I was a little bit afraid to use the mask.
But I decided to use it with no expectations and let me tell you: I love it! It leaves my hair gorgeous, moisturized and the color is on point. Do I noticed a lighter shade? No, I don’t. If you want your highlights really light then you should use the blue/violet shampoo/conditioner but if you want to maintain the blonde color without the yellow-ish tone then this is great.
What I love the most is that I imediatly feel my hair smoother and a big difference when I’m drying it. I feel less frizz and more control. When I use my babyliss, it only take me 10/15 minutes to straight my entire hair (it used to take 30 minutes).
There’s only one thing I don’t love about this product: the ‘fragance’. It’s like lemon but more chemical than natural.
The product has chamomile which is well know for its hair lightning capacity, so I will start to check my roots to see if this has some kind o effect on my natural hair.
