John Frieda Sheer Blonde Hair Repair Intensive Conditioning Treatment
Advantages: Smells great, works well not too pricey
Disadvantages: Sometime difficult to find in shops
I used to experiment a lot with shampoo's and conditioners (where as now I tend to stick to Lush shampoo bars), and used the blonde shampoos a lot for a while. I tried both the Toni and Guy and Sheer Blonde ranges a lot and found some where better than others. A better one was the Sheer Blonde Hair Repair Intensive Conditioning Treatment.
This is an intensive conditioning treatment which claims to "nourishes strengthens, restoring dry, damaged blonde to silky, manageable condition". Sheer Blonde state that it is "specially developed for blondes with our salon expertise" and "intensive formula with a tri-level protein complex bonds to hair, repairing surface texture. Even fragile hair regains elasticity and shimmers with a healthy high-gloss finish". This all sounded pretty good and I was sold!
My hair has never been in a bad condition and rarely suffers from dryness or split ends etc, but I still like to give it a treat every now and then and this was why I had bought the Intensive conditioning treatment. Also at the time I had had a spate of drying my hair darker and now wanted to return to my natural blonde but the colour needed a little help to look healthier again.
The Intensive Conditioning Treatment can be brought from most major supermarkets and stores such as Boots and Superdrug. A 150 ml tub is around £5.80.
The treatment comes in a 150ml creamy gold plastic tub. It states "Sheer Blonde" in black and "Blonde Hair Repair Conditioning Treatment" in a dark gold. Inside the conditoner is a thick cream coloured consistency and smells divine! It smells flowery and rich.
Directions of Use
Simply use after shampoo and smooth through the hair. I personally never used to put this on the roots of my hair as mine is prone to greasiness so I smoothed it in from the mid length to the ends. At the ends I applied it generously for an added boost. You then simply rinse it out after either 15 minutes for a deep treatment or 3-5 minutes for a more regular treat.
When you apply the conditioner it smoothes over your wet hair easily and sticks to it rather than running off which means it conditioners your hair longer. When you rinse out, it comes away from the hair easily and your hair continues to smell like the treatment all day even after blow drying.
When you hair is still wet you can already feel the effect on your hair and when it's dry the results keep getting better. When dry the hair feels nourished and really well conditioned, my hair also had much more shine to it and looked better overall.
I used to use this once a week for 15 minutes and over time I did see an improvement, I stopped getting the odd split ends I used to and my hair was much more manageable and was also less static and flyaway. I only stopped using it when I had gone to restock and it wasn't in any shops for some reason so I started using the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle instead, but recently it has reappeared in our local Boots and Superdrug so I have snapped up a tub
Summary: A great luxury treat for you locks
