Boost your locks with the Bblonde Lightening Spray by Jerome Russell

Bblonde Lightening Spray
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!
Ombre hair with Bblonde Lightening Spray
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.

L’ANZA KB2 Hydrate Shampoo and Detangler

Hair care is an important part of my daily routine, and while I don’t use many products on my hair as it gets greasy very quickly, I have found that a good quality shampoo and conditioner really does make a difference to the look and feel of my hair. For the last month I have been trying out the Hydrate Shampoo and Detangler from the L’ANZA  KB2 Keratin Bond range.

Now Autumn has well and truly arrived, and Winter will soon be on its way, it is a really important time to invest in some high quality hair care products. The drop in temperature means that we are not just having to reach for our chunky cable knits but it is essential to update not just your wardrobe but hair care routine too. The colder Autumn air is very drying and leeches moisture from the hair, and putting on the heating is very drying too. With all the moisture being lost from our hair it is important if you want your locks to look luscious you need to replace this lost moisture.

The L’ANZA KB2 range can actually fight the effects of environmental damage using a Keratin Bond 2 Complex that  replaces and strengthens the keratin proteins in the hair. It simultaneously uses a luxurious range of botanical ingredients that are enriched with vitamins to revitalise and hydrate dry and damaged hair.

The Shampoo and Detangler smell amazing and really remind me of Aveda products. After applying the shampoo my hair felt instantly cleansed as it lathered quickly and I found that even a small amount was enough to work all the way through my thick, long hair. The Detangler is essentially a conditioner, so don’t expect your hair to be completely knot free! As my hair is so thick I find that it gets knotty really easily and usually a Tangle Teezer is the only thing that can smooth my mane! However the Detangler seriously improved the condition of my hair and eased out some of the tangles in the shower due to the conditioning properties of the product.

Overall I really think that the L’ANZA KB2 Hydrate Shampoo and Detangler has improved the appearance of my hair and I think I have suffered less split ends and hair breakage in the month since I have been using these gorgeous products. If you are interested in updating your hair care routine, you can get your hands on the Hydrate Shampoo for £15.35 and the Hydrate Detangler for £16.50 both from Look Fantastic.
