Scott Cornwall B4 U Colour
Advantages: It works well, not too expensive
About the product:
B4 U Colour is another product by Scott Cornwall, the summary of what it does from their website says "Scott Cornwall B4U Colour B4U Colour is a mild hair colour remover that will gently restore your to its natural glorious shade by removing all nasty barriers and silicone deposits from the hair."
I recently used this as I was going from blonde back to a darker colour and knew I had a lot of products left in my hair. I bought this to remove all the nasties to allow my new colour to to cover well.
From the site it states to use when:
* You can apply B4U colour on the day of your colour of hair alteration treatment whether its straightening, perming or colour removal.
* The effects of B4U Colour will remain in your hair until subsequent build up resumes; therefore you can use B4U Colour on the day or even before a salon or at home colour or technical service and achieve perfect results.
* If you treat hair with B4U Colour at least once a week it will also prevent a build up occurring and illuminate the chances of residue or silicone damage.
I used it for the first scenario.
I bought a bottle of this from Sainsburys where it cost me around £3.99, it comes in a box as shown and inside is a 150ml bottle. This doesn't seem a lot for the price, however you don't use it that often and you don't need a lot!
It states to use a walnut sized amount and lather then leave for 2 - 5 minutes. As I have long hair I needed a little more, about half as much again to cover my hair. It's a typical shampoo consistancy and is very easy to use and lather, although it lathers less than some shampoos it still does enough for you to see how it's covering.
It has a mild smell and doesn't smell too chemically, it smells almost fruity to me in fact, it's a pleasant smell I didn't mind on my hair.
Does it work?
Always the most important part of a product! It left my hair feeling a little dry but I had been bleaching it blonde for months so this was hardly surprising, plus you're usually using it before other treatments. If you conditioned well afterwards I think it would leave your hair nice and soft.
It definitely appeared to remove a lot of the build up that you get in your hair over time, which for my purposes was the main thing I needed. Definitely the best of the deep cleansing treatments I've used and something I'll be keeping in stock to use now and then.
Overall a very effective product and a good price considering the amount and frequency of use needed - I'd definitely recommend using this before colouring your hair.
No disadvantages with this product - it just does as it promises! Well worth the £3.99.
Summary: A product that does what it promises.
