Best violet / colour protector shampoo for blonde hair
I had my hair done last week; my usual colour and toner - light blonde (I’m naturally blonde but much darker blonde) with a silver/blue over toner. I’d really like to protect the colour and shine for as long as possible between salon trips. I’ve used a couple of silver shampoos with ok but not amazing results, but have you wise mumsnetters any recommendations for a good one? What has worked for you?
Thanks all any more suggestions, keep them coming? Also, any other products you’d recommend for styling? My hairdresser told me to get a protein spray but I’m dubious about the benefits for the cost of it, to be honest.
Bleaching strips hair of its protein which affects its ability to retain moisture, which is why your stylist recommended one. That's the one we use. Osmo Intensive Repair Mask is good too and has a good balance of protein and moisture and it smells divine.
They do a protein spray called Perfect 10 which gets great reviews but I found it to be a bit sticky and heavy. I get on much with the dual action miracle repair but I have fine hair, maybe on thicker hair the perfect 10 is better.
DD's overprocessed/bleached hair is only attached to her head because of Osmo and coconut oil. She uses the intensive repair mask twice a week and slathers her hair in coconut oil once a week, which she leaves on overnight. If you didn't see it wet, you'd assume her hair was strong and healthy. I think she also uses an argon oil after the miracle repair spray.
