As you will already know I am forever on the quest for the right shade of blonde.
Now, I usually achieve this immediately after dying my hair which is great – but it doesn’t look quite as hot two weeks after colouring.
I usually find that my blonde is turning a little yellow and a tad patchy after this amount of time and is well due for a little toning.
I have tried a few different toners for blonde hair in recent times but never the one that stood out most to me on the shelves of Boots and Superdrug.
This week I tried out the Jerome Russell – Bblonde – Champagne Blonde* colour toner.
This toner is for pre-lightened or naturally blonde hair and is designed to add subtle beige/blush tones without using ammonia or peroxide and lasts up to 8 washes.
The instructions are very easy to follow, you simply wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo, towel dry and add in the product.
The formula is really nice to work with, it is non-staining and lathers into a rather nice smelling soap.
I was interested to see that the formula isn’t pigmented, instead, it is dispensed as a peach coloured gel that turns white upon contact with the hair.
After applying the product you pop a bag on your head (I just used a Superdrug carrier) and heat with a hairdryer for 5 minutes before leaving the formula on for 30 mins (less if the colour develops quicker.)
As you can see the toner has evened out my colour a lot to a more beige blonde as opposed to the false yellow colour it was turning.
I would say that the results are very similar to the Schwarzkopf – Live Color XXL Toner also named ‘Champagne Blonde’ [FULL REVIEW HERE]
The colour itself lasted on me around six washes as my hair doesn’t tend to hold colour very well but I also managed three full head applications of the toner to compensate.
Which toner would you like me to try next?
