Taking Care of Your Blond Hair Between Appointments
As a naturally dark-haired brunette, getting a blond ombré was not an easy or cheap decision. If you've been following me since I started this blog then you may be familiar with my hair transformation. It's been over a year and a half since I first ombréd my hair. Since then I've cut my hair, and re-ombréd it at least twice.
But being a natural brunette means that keeping up with my blond hair between appointments takes some effort. I use special shampoo and conditioner, get it toned often, and try not to use a lot of heat tools on it. These little things that have helped my hair stay healthy. So when I was approached to try a lightening spray that isn't harsh and doesn't use ANY bleach, you can say I was pretty intrigued.
The Sun Lightening Spray by Klorane is said to be a gentle product that works on even bleached blond hair to give it "honey-blond highlights". The spray's featured ingredients are chamomile and honey. According to Klorane's website, "chamomile extra has been used for generations for its natural hair lightening properties."
The company started over 50 years ago, with its founding product being the Golden Highlights Shampoo. The shampoo is the original Klorane chamomile product for those with blond hair. They also carry a conditioner along with Lightening Spray in the chamomile line.
It sounds too good to be true, right? I just had to put it to the test on my colour-treated hair. So I grabbed my bottled sunshine, a comb and gave it a shot!
1. Following the instructions, I grabbed sections and sprayed my ends. I made sure not to soak my hair.
Fun fact: It can be used on towel dried or completely dry hair!
2. Right after spraying a section I combed through it to evenly spread the product.
Fun Fact: There's no oxygenated water in it, so no need to worry about your hair turning orange.
3. I continued the process until my head was done.
Fun Fact: You don't have to use a blow dryer to make the product work.
After my first use I noticed the pieces around my face looked blonder, my hair felt softer, and the rest of my ombré brighter. Not to mention this stuff smells absolutely amazing. The instructions also say to use up to three times a week, and after three weeks it should reach its best results. Since this is a gradual product, I'm excited to see the full results after a couple more weeks of use (I'll keep you updated on my Instagram page (@TheTrendyFiles). But honestly so far, it's doing a really good job of keeping my blond hair looking fresh and like I spent the day in the sun!
Thank you to Langton PR for sending me this product to review.
