I’m a natural brunette, but somehow I always end up a blonde after an appointment with my stylist! I just can’t seem to help going for a brighter, bolder shade of blonde each time I sit down in that chair.
Keeping my hair healthy with all of my daily processing plus consistent colour appointments means I need a little more TLC on my strands then most people.
I’ve spent a couple weeks using the Dessange California Blonde Collection, and it turns out it was meant for a faux-blonde gal like myself!
The collection is for colour-treated blonde hair such as mine, and after using all of these products I learned that my hair was in need of some repair.
I started out with the California Blonde Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner. It was a great start because my hair felt so smooth right after washing it, and after my initial rough blow dry my hair was squeaky clean and shiny.
All of these amazing products arrived at the perfect time as I was getting close to my next hair appointment because my regularly scheduled hair issue was coming to a head (literally) – my colour was looking mighty brassy!
In my opinion the coolest product in the Dessange California Blonde collection is the California Blond Colour Correcting Crème.
Anyone who colours their hair blonde knows exactly what I’m talking about – suddenly one day you wake up, look in the mirror and see dull, yellowish shade of blonde that you did not sign off on.
This correcting crème was incredible! I wish I had of known about it ages ago because the blue pigments in the crème neutralized all of the brassiness and made my hair colour look salon fresh again. This stuff is a must-have for any faux-blonde gals like myself.
Being on a the go for what seems like every moment of my life (really, doesn’t it sometimes feel like you don’t have a second to get anything done?) means that I have a special love for products that allow me to go on with my day while they work their magic.
Thankfully the Dessange California Blonde Illuminating Elixir was a spray-and-go application that I could use when I was done getting my hair ready in the morning.
It’s a leave-in gel treatment which added some much needed shine to my hair, and made my blonde look that much fresher. It also seals in the surface of the hair cuticle to work it’s magic and create the illusion of fabulous, glossy blonde hair.
I don’t mind spraying anything on my hair in the morning that takes so little time to make a big difference in my hair’s overall look.
To say I was impressed with the Dessange California Blond Collection would be an understatement. Sometimes you don’t know how big your problem is until products come along to solve them. I’m loving how my colour is looking right now, and I think I could almost pass as a real-life actual blonde!
