Going Lighter for Summer.



After a few weeks of being lighter, I think it's time we address my hair here on my blog. I've been thinking about ditching the ombre for sometime I just wanted something a little lighter and I felt my hair just needed a refresh. A few weeks back I got my sister to transform my hair and make my locks lighter for summer. I adore the ends of my hair, they are the perfect colour for me, but obviously as my hair was darker up top it will take a few rounds of highlights to get it the same shade. However, I am so happy with the results from just one full head of highlights. The colour lifted so much more than I thought it would and there is just the tiniest patch that's still a little darker than I would like. 

To keep my hair is good condition after being lightened, I've been using the BLONDEME* range from Schwarzkopf. I've been washing my hair with the Colour Enhancing Blonde Shampoo, which is a really thick purple shampoo to give you that fab anti-yellow effect. I've been leaving this on a few minutes in the shower then washing it out to leave me with toned and ashy highlights. After towel-drying my hair I've been applying the Colour Correction Spray Conditioner, which is again a purple-toned product that leaves my hair super soft and easy to manage.

Once a week I've been applying the Keratin Restore Blonde Mask to my hair before washing it. I love hair masks and this one is no exception. It is super thick and luxurious and leaves my hair feeling amazing. I tend to leave this on a little longer than the 10 minutes recommended as I really like to make sure it works super hard on my dry hair.

I'm really impressed with the BLONDEME range, but the thing I love the most is the smell of the products. As these products are part of the professional range they smell incredible and leave me with that salon-feeling every time I wash my hair.
