Within the last 9 months, I went from long balayage-blonde to wavy, even longer blonde with extensions to medium-length blonde with extensions to short blonde without extensions and now transformed it all into a brunette long bob – or Lob as the cool kids call it, duh! So that by itself took it out of my hair and me.
As much as the move from blonde to brunette is a healthy step for your hair, if you’ve ever done it, you’ll know that it’s pretty hard to get the colour to settle. The first time I went to get the dye job done, it started fading as soon as I washed it. The colourist told me that I might have to come in a few times before the colour will stay – because you have to build it up. Pretty contradictory, if you ask me, the reason I went darker was because I wanted to give my hair a break, not to keep messing with it.
Luckily, I remembered that the last time I did the blonde-brunette switch, my hairdresser at the time recommended Revlon Nutri Color Creme to keep it healthy and the colour alive and fresh. Revlon Nutri Color Creme is a handy three-in-one treatment that adds colour, shine and softness to your hair – and the best thing is, it only takes three minutes!
Much like a conditioner it helps to keep your hair healthy and shiny, AHA fruit acids hydrate, soften, nourish and untangle your hair and cosmetic agents soften and polish the cuticle, while the ionic pigments enrich your colour. And all that without any ammonia or peroxide – woop woop!
The Nutri Color Creme comes in two different sizes and in 15 great shades and colours, some funkier than others. It even lets you add some temporary highlights or pastel, candy-coloured nuances to your hair if you want to change it up for the weekend (check out the new Fondant Color range).
If you’re a blonde you’ll love #1002 Platinum Blonde, which removes unwanted yellow tones – I tried it and loved it. When I went red, channelling my inner Lana Del Rey ( yes, that happened), I used #734 Copper Gold and right now I am going between #411 Cool Brown and #621 Deep Chestnut, to make my colour last until the next visit at the hairdressers.
Needless to say, I trust this product but, if you’re still not sure and want to find out a bit more and how to properly apply it, check out the video below:
