I had a bad dye job. Asked for ashy blonde, got yellow. Brassy. So bad that I would go back and complain, if the thought of such a confrontation didn’t make me want to hide under my duvet. So I went for the anxiety free option. I googled it.
The internet suggested purple shampoo and an old Sali Hughes Guardian Beauty column led me to this, the L’Oréal Professional Serie Silver Shampoo. Serie Silver is actually intended for grey hair, but it was described in the article as ‘Debbie Harry in a bottle’ so I was sold.
After two uses it was still more Effie Hunger Games than Debbie Harry Blondie. But after the third use the change was quite dramatic. Significantly more ashy, particularly through the lengths. So much so that I might need to lay off it for a while, lest my hair turn purple.
Should you want your grey or blonde to look a little cleaner, check it out.
The L’Oréal Professional Serie Expert Silver is currently £10 (usual price £12.50) at lookfantastic, here.
Til next time,
