If you’re unbothered by your hair, well, then I bow down to you. Chances are, if you’re like me and fork out your hard earned cash on highlights and hair colour you probably don’t feel the same. Because while I live for summer time sun and winter beach getaways with a margarita in hand, my blonde highalights do not.
Frazzled, fried, matted, brassy, burnt, dry and lifeless…? Yup, that’s how I used to describe my hair. For decades. Ever since (sorry mom), my mom went through her DIY Tony perm phase and made sure that me, my two sisters, all of our friends and the kids in the neighborhood had curls. Since then, my straight hair has been subjected to life a.k.a: chlorine, sunshine, ocean salt and sweat, which have sadly had the same result and Tony and kept me on constant lookout for hair healing and colour protecting products, like Wella Invigo Recharge Cool Blonde Refreshing Shampoo and Conditioner, which I recently discovered.
Both the shampoo and the conditioner are perfect for my blonde highlights and anyone else’s blonde locks even if they are 100 per cent colour free. The shampoo and the conditioner’s salon-formulated, violet-toned ingredients work hard to maintain the blonde hues you were born with or paid for, eliminate brassiness and infuse moisture so that your hair is soft to the touch and appears vibrant when you look in the mirror. The shampoo gets rid of the regular dirt and gunk you expect it to, too, just make sure to leave it and the conditioner on for three to five minutes to ensure you’re getting the blonde refresh you need.
Wella Invigo Blonde Recharge Cool Blonde Refreshing Shampoo and Conditioner are from US$12.99 each and available online at www.ulta.com and at professional hair salons.
