“ Brand: Mark Hill / Type: Hair Shampoo „
I recently had my hair dyed. I had different blonde highlights put in throught my hair. I have had this done on many occasions and find that my colour starts to fade and look dull.
At christmas my mother in law saw this and thought of me. It is a shampoo that is supposed to keep your highlights looking blonde. It is made by Mark Hill who is a well known hair dresser and this particular range is called beautiful blonde due to it should only be used on blonde hair natural or dyed. It is a highlight refelective shampoo for hair colours from platinum to honey, I have 3 different blondes in my hair that are between these colours which should have meant that it would suit my hair.
It is a moisture rice shampoo that helps clarify the tone and vibrancy while stregnthening your hair. It has natural extracts of lemon and honey and a multi dimentional shine complex this should make light blonde hair soft, smooth and silky. He says all this in a statement on the back of the bottle. It also has his signature under this statement that suggests that he is actually saying this to the purchaser.
The directions on the back of the bottle are easy to understand you apply this to wet hair and massage gently. You wash this out throughly and repeat the procedure for a second time.
All the ingrediants are under the directions for your knowledge incase you may be allergic to any of the ingrediants. This product also has a 12 month use by date from opening. I think this is good and makes it good value for money.
The bottle is a very elegant adult looking bottle it is an off cream coloured bottle that is seethrough. It has a matt gold colourd lid and the writing on the bottle is in brown and orange this is rarther smart looking and appeals to me right away. The matt gold top pulls off to reveal a cap that you press the top to reveal the small hole that the shampoo comes out of. You squeeze the bottle to extract the shampoo from the bottle, this is easy to do and you do not have to squeeze very hard. You can then push down the cap that is inside to seal the bottle so that no shampoo will spill out and replace the top, because the top can be pressed down to secure it there is no necessary need to repace the cap.
The shampoo smells very sweet and reminds me slightly of being at the hairdressers. It is a thick shampoo but I have found that I need to fill the palm of my hand to have enough go on my hair to create a lather and wash all my hair. I only have short hair so if you have longer hair then more will be needed. It is a clear shampoo and does wash very well when you use enough of it. I have found that it washes out very well and does not leave bubbles in your hair. When I have washed my hair I have noticed that my hair becomes very luggy and feels bitty in my hands after I have washed this out. This did concern me but after using the conditioner and all the other products like the heat spray and control spray after using this that my hair was very nice.
I have noticed after styling my hair does get a lovely shine and my highlights do look slighly more vibrant than normal so it did do what it said on the bottle with a little help from the remainder of the range but not as much as I would have expected.
This shampoo is not to be used alone this will do nothing for your hair and would not make it soft smooth or vibrant, it is definatley to be used with the rest of the range from Mark Hills Beautiful Blonde collection. This bottle will last me quiet a few months and does seem to help my hair. I have noticed that it take around a week to notice any effects on your hair so persistance is the key.
I would recommend this to the blonde haired people but you must purchase the whole range to benifit which can work out expensive. The whole range will last you approximately 6 months which isnt too bad and it does help protect your hair when styling and it will make the highlights look slighly lighter and your hair smooth and healthier. The only down side to this is that it will not work on its own and you have to buy the range for your hair not to be luggy, break or look out of control.
This is an ok product that is so far working on my hair but works out a little expensive for my taste.
