I’ve long been a blonde. It’s nowhere near my natural hair colour, yet I feel more myself when my hair is blonde. Despite flirting with a variety of colours, from red to black, pink to lavender, bleach blonde has been a constant.

The problem I’ve continuously faced is obviously breakage, split ends and ‘tufts’ along my hairline, which take an age to grow and make me resemble a crazed woman who hasn’t brushed her hair in a while.
Needless to say, I’m getting married next year and have decided that I’d like my hair to be a white, icy blonde. Oh and long. Two things that don’t normally occur together. So, how to achieve this? I’ve given myself a good head start (pun intended) and started to slowly go blonde from my natural brown. So far, so good. I visit my hairdresser once every two months for a root touch up and trim. A trim so minor you can’t really see a difference, however, it is making a difference as my hair is growing as well as battered bleached strands can.
Two other products that I cannot fault and credit for my hair’s strength and shine are the Nak Aromas Blonde Ends Therapy and Milk_Shake Silver Shine Shampoo.
My hairdresser, Stef at Style Bar, has waxed lyrical about this shampoo. He’s a huge fan, and, after using it myself, I totally get why. Where other silver shampoo’s fail, this one gets it right time and time again.  How you may ask? It’s all down to a combination of restructuring benefits thanks to milk protein, vitamin-rich blueberries and the most intense violet pigment which completely eradicates brassy tones. Sometimes I leave it in a little longer than recommended to give my hair a lavender tint. As an added bonus, the shampoo also protects hair from frequent washing and the free radicals that can be found bouncing around our environment.
This vegan-friendly, leave-in treatment ticks all the right boxes. Consisting of a masterful mix of Argan oil, geranium, lavender and patchouli extracts that detangle, protect and neutralize unwanted brassy tones thanks to the added blue/violet colour pigments. It’s a cinch to use and doesn’t leave any residue or stickiness on your strands. Oh, and it’s sulphate and paraben free too.
You can purchase these products online with Retail Box or at your nearest Style Bar salon.
