John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder! Shampoo and Conditioner

RRP: £5.49 each

--What does the promo say?--
"New Sheer Blonde® go blonder shampoo and conditioner, with citrus, chamomile and no harsh chemicals, gradually lightens hair to achieve a magical sun-kissed sparkle all year round."

--Packaging--
A bright yellow fades to white on both bottles, which are made of plastic and have a flip-top lid. The bottle stands easily on the lid in the shower and the lids close securely too.

--Usage--
As usual - massage shampoo through wet hair, rinse out, apply conditioner, and leave to rest for a few minutes before rinsing. Repeat if desired.

--Scent--
Subtle and natural, and slightly reminiscent of that 'salon' smell, which gives great confidence that the product will be of salon quality too.

--Appearance--
Delicious lemon-yellow lotion, with the conditioner having a bit more of a 'sheen' to it.

--Texture/consistency--
Not lumpy or sticky; extremely pleasant to use and easy to wash out.

--How does your hair feel afterwards?--
Smooth and manageable with added volume.

--How does your hair look afterwards?--
In immediate terms, as mentioned above, hair is definitely more voluminous and seems to have gained added lightness. Long-term, though, I suspect patience is required: I've been using this set now for a couple of weeks and haven't noticed any difference in the colour of my hair. You'll definitely need to wait longer for results than you would with a commercial, chemical hair dye.

--Value for money--
The bottles are substantial and do provide high quality results in terms of general hair condition. However, this probably isn't the product for you if colour is your number one concern.

I have always like John Frieda products, however at The Vision Academy (a Paul Mitchell Partner School) we obviously use Paul Mitchell Products. I think it would be neat to do some kind of poll or research to see how these products compare.

If you can arrange to have some Paul Mitchell stuff sent to me I'd be more than happy to compare them to the John Frieda stuff for you ;-)
