Bleach London Silver Shampoo

As a blonde I am always looking for ways to maintain my colour and make it last as long as I can before having it dyed again. Firstly because it costs so much getting it done at the hairdressers and secondly because I have bleach put on my hair which isn’t good for it!

Silver shampoos are designed to get rid of the yellow/brassy tones blonde hair often develops. I have tried a number of silver shampoos over the years and I love them so much! Until recently I would say my favourite was A Touch of Silver Shampoo

A few months ago lots of bloggers were raving about the brand Bleach London and how good it was. I knew I had to try one of their products and when I saw they do a silver shampoo I had to have it! I was also pleasantly surprised when I saw it was only £5 in Boots.

I am always cautious the first time I use a silver shampoo as they can be very strong and leave a purple stain on the hair. The bottle says to put it on and lather then wash off, but it doesn’t recommend how long to leave it on the hair. To be safe I only left it on for a minute or so the first time, and when I dried my hair I didn’t see that much of a result.  However, when I used it the second time I left it on for around 5 minutes maybe a couple longer and I noticed a huge result! There was a definite change in my hair colour, with my highlights showing more white/ platinum blonde instead of a bit brassy. I did try doing a before and after photo but the colour didn’t really show well in the photos.

I use this shampoo once a week and it really does make a difference. It says to use it every other wash, but I would suggest to be careful doing this as there is definitely a colour build up so using it frequently might leave your hair looking purple.

I also recently washed my hair extensions in this shampoo to make them match my natural hair colour better and it worked really well. Although a couple of the clips did stain a little bit purple (oops) but at least no one sees those!

I really recommend this shampoo if you are blonde like me. They also do a purple conditioner which I am thinking of trying next. If anyone has tried this please let me know what you think :)

Has anyone else tried this Bleach shampoo? What do you think?

I'd love to hear any feedback.
