I have been blonde now for (almost) as long as I can remember. There was a brief hiatus where I tried to find my original hair colour but alas, it was mostly grey so I went back to my beloved blonde.
But the thing about being blonde is that it is just as important to keep maintaining your colour. After a long holiday in Spain my hair is in need of some TLC to say the least: it needs extra nourishment and the yellow brassiness toned down.
This is where Tresemme’s Violet Blonde Shine shampoo and conditioner have been my recent beauty update – the violet tones down the yellowness in dyed blonde hair (made with pearl extract, of course) and the keratin helps strengthen your hair from damage. So an all round winner, really.
Over the last few years, I’ve been getting my hair highlighted via a salon less and less, partly for budget reasons but also time restraints – in principle, the idea of sitting in a hair salon being pampered is dreamy – but the reality of having a few hours spare is rather different. So it’s even more important for me to keep working on my hair at home between visits, and Tresemme’s affordable Violet range (did I mention these shampoo is £4.99?!) is my answer to feeling salon fresh without the hassle.
I’ve been using it 2-3 times a week and you can really notice the difference.
So yes, I will be staying blonde (as long as those greys are still there and I have the guts to just go grey) – but a cooler, less brassy one from now on.
