I have always been a bit obsessed with colouring my hair, that’s one of the problems with being a hairdresser! I am forever seeing people change their hair style and colour and I always find myself thinking “hmm… I wonder what that will look like on me?”.
Over the years my hair has become very damaged, because of this, my hair finds its difficult to lock in colour. Usually, my hair stays bright and fresh after a colouring session for about three weeks… then it goes very dull and
limp. I decided it was time to invest in a better shampoo and conditioner to try and prolong that ‘freshly coloured’ feel! I came across the TRESemme Vitamin E Aloe Colour Protection Shampoo and Conditioner when I was trolling the health and beauty isle at Tesco. It wasn’t too expensive at £4.99 per 900ml (55.44p per 100ml), considering that this size of bottle would easily last me a month! The treatment uses specialized cleansing for colour treated hair which helps to protect the colour leaving it ‘vibrant and shiny’. It is supposed to help colour stay fresh and lasts up to 40 washes. The product also boasts about its ‘advanced colour lock technology’, I’m not too sure what this actually consists of, but it does sound good!
On the first use, I was very impressed! I only needed to use a small pea sized amount of shampoo and conditioner to easily cover all of my hair… this really was going to last me a month! The shampoo smelt lovely and the conditioner made the water run through my hair so delicately! I was very impressed with the product during the ‘washing’ process but now needed to dry my hair and see how my hair actually looks and feels. Whilst I was drying my hair, I could really smell the product on my hair, I loved this! My hair felt smooth and shiny and I was so happy with the results… but I needed to use it more to see if it really improved the colour! Well… its been four weeks since I last coloured my hair and I have almost run out of shampoo and do have about a weeks worth of conditioner left. I am so impressed! My hair colour still looks fresh and bright and my hair has lost its ‘dull and frizzy’ look! I’m defiantly going to be purchasing this product again and I will defiantly recommend this shampoo and conditioner to my clients after all my colouring sessions! I think that it is cheap at £4.99 a bottle when you consider what a high quality professional result it delivers.
