My natural hair colour is a dark dirty blonde but from the age of about 13 I have regularly given my hair a colour injection, whether it was a full head of colour or some highlights. I have found this can be a nightmare to manage as my hair grows really quickly, so my roots show through after just a couple of weeks making dying my hair costly and time consuming. About six months ago I decided to leave my hair alone for a while and let it grow out naturally. So I was asked to try out Jerome Russell’s Bblonde Lightening Spray* I was ready and excited to try out something new.
After having a good look through pinterest for some hair inspiration I realised that I could use the Bblonde Lightening Spray to produce a soft and subtle ombre look. Creating this style was relatively straightforward. You need to concentrate the spray on the ends of your hair, and gradually spray less the further up your hair you go – much easier than using actual dye!
The spray should only be used by people with blonde to dark blonde hair, so if you are darker I really don’t recommend you try this because the colour you end up with might not be what you are looking for! Although if you have a dip dye then this would be great for lightening the ends.
The spray is designed to be applied to wet hair after washing and conditioning. I recommend using a good quality hair masque or conditioner to keep your hair soft. Then the bleach is activated by heat from blow drying your hair. The good news is that this product contains a heat protector, so you don’t need to spray any extra product before styling.
I’ve used the spray about five times now and I’ve managed to achieve a good amount of lightening on the bottom three quarters of my hair so I am pretty happy with this! If you want to lighten your hair up a few shades in time for summer then I recommend giving The Bblonde Lightening Spray a try. You can pick up a bottle for just £5.99 from Boots, and the good news is, they are currently doing a 3 for 2 offer on all haircare.
