John Frieda Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray

If you are a blonde like me and have your hair bleached at the hairdressers, you will know that annoying fading process that happens in-between visits. I try lots of different products to prevent this and put of my next visit to the hairdressers, as I don't like to put bleach on my hair very often. These include silver shampoos, lightening shampoos, conditioners and the latest product I have tried is this John Frieda Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray. 

I feel it is important to mention at this point that this spray does contain hydrogen peroxide, so it is really important to follow the instructions seriously otherwise your hair could be left damaged. This is a controlled lightening spray, which means you will not see immediate results to your hair, John Frieda say results will be seen after 3-5 uses. 

It works with heat, so the best way to use this is to spray it on wet towel-dried hair, in the desired areas, then blow dry and then use straighteners or curlers to maximise the results. The instructions state to use this no more than 10 times as maximum lightening will have occurred by this point. 

John Frieda say that this product should not be used on natural brown or dark hair, or platinum and white shades of blonde hair. As my hair is naturally blonde with highlights every few months, I thought this spray would be suitable for my hair. 

I used this by spraying it only onto my roots only, I don't like to touch the ends of my hair as I want to keep them in good condition. Then blowdrying and ensuring lots of heat gets onto my roots to activate the spray. I used this every other wash for around six occasions. As it says, I didn't notice much difference after the second and third application, but by the forth I could definitely see my roots were getting lighter. It does say you can use it up to 10 times but after six I thought it was enough and didn't need anymore. 

I am really impressed with the results, it has lightened my dark blonde roots very well. It hasn't worked miracles on my hair as it doesn't completely match the colour to the rest of my hair, but it definitely enhances the blonde and doesn't make the roots coming through look obvious at all. I stopped using this after six applications, as I felt it was starting to develop a slight orange/ yellow tinge and I didn't want to make this worse. However, I have found a great way to prevent this by using some silver shampoo on my roots and leaving on for a few minutes which makes it look even lighter and bright. 

I think that this product will completely depend on the individuals hair type and colour, as different people's hair can react to colour differently. So like I said it is really important you are careful with this and if you feel it is becoming damaging then definitely stop.

I personally didn't find it damaged my hair at all, it didn't feel dry in anyway which is a great bonus, as sometimes after an application of bleach it can feel quite dry. With the combination of this spray and some silver shampoo this works wonders and can definitely delay a trip to the hairdressers to get those roots covered up.

Have you tried this spray? What did you think?
