Natural blondes know how hard it is to get a beautiful color tone. The hair looks frequently like straw and only in summer you get it perfect without any hint of orange. I always wondered if I could maintain this shade all year round.
I first tried this shampoo 7 years ago and was totally obsessed with the results.
I washed my hair about 5 times and got an amazing golden hue. Since then I use it constantly.
So, let’s talk about this miraculous shampoo.
Volume: 250 ml
What does the manufacturer promise?
Brighten blonde strands, year-round. This hair lightening shampoo gradually deposits yellow tones for blonder-looking hues. Natural Lightening Complex gently lightens blonde hair and is mild enough for daily use. Ammonia and peroxide free. For all shades of natural, color-treated, or highlighted blonde hair.
Packaging: I’m not much into the tube, because it flows when used on trips.
The shampoo is liquid and comes out even when I don’t squeeze it.
The formula is nice to the touch.
The design is simple yet lovely.
The tube is yellow-white and conveys the concept of the product perfectly.
Smell: It smells like lemons in a soap, very enjoyable.
Result: Here is a picture of how my hair looked before the shampoo. It’s fair with a hint of yellow and some dark strands, but it’s still blonde.
When I use this shampoo, my hair gets gradually lighter and when I get the desired result, I wash it with this product only once per week. Other than that, I use natural shampoos.
It doesn’t dry out my hair. The main thing is not to use it on a day to day basis, but only to maintain the required result.
I don’t use a conditioner of this brand, because I prefer applying an all-natural conditioner with coconut oil.
Why doesn’t everyone love it?
If you have chemical-sensitive skin, do not use it. It makes the scalp of some girls red and irritated and I even know a woman who sued the brand because of that.

Honestly, these are not the worst ingredients.
They say that it can be used for color-treated blondes too, but I doubt it because such hair is overly dry already and this shampoo washes off the pigment along with the natural components your scalp produces. That’s why it will make your hair even drier.
My sister believes she is blonde, although she has light-brown hair. After a few applications, she got a hint of orange to her hair and no lightening. All I mean is that this shampoo is mostly meant for natural blonde hair to correct the color tone.
I frequently buy this shampoo, because it’s my lifesaver. It’s not suitable for everyone, but if your hair is similar to mine, I definitely recommend you try it.
If you want to see a significant change in your blonde hair, I recommend the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Spray. This option may damage your hair, but it lightens it for good.
