30 days was all it took to fall in love...
For the past month, I have been a part of Dessange’s 30 Days of Blonde Campaign to celebrate the European brand's launch in Canada. I love keeping my blonde highlights as natural looking as possible, and my hairdresser Joy Mitchell does such an amazing job colouring my hair that I like to make sure I take great care of the colour at home in between appointments, so that it lasts as long as possible. Enter Dessange who challenged me to use their incredible hair care line, California Blonde for 30 days to keep my blonde locks looking like new, and I fell in love! The line was created specifically for colour-treated blondes, and I am so excited to talk about the results that it has provided for my hair!
The MVP’s of the California Blonde line-up without a doubt are the Illuminating Shampoo and Condition. Why?! Because the shampoo enhanced my hair's shine while it gently cleansed and nourished it, boosting my colours radiance and shine. In turn the ultra-nourishing conditioner wrapped my hair with moisture from root to tip, smoothing and taming my dry, unruly strands. I've had trouble in the past finding a conditioner that nourishes and detangles my hair without weighing it down - with this product I can stop searching! I definitely found that my hair looked incredibly healthy & shiny after using the products all month.
The illuminating California Blonde collection would make even Goldilocks jealous of YOUR fabulous golden locks.
While I anticipated the use of the Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner, the product I was most looking forward to trying was the I was the Brass Colour Correcting Cream with blue pigments. The rinse out treatment reverses unwanted brassy tones in your hair while maintaining that perfect blonde you get with fresh highlights. I used this product once a week during the trial to counteract the brassiness which tends to kick in for me around week 3 or 4. I offset these treatments with a nickel size dollop of the Illuminating Elixir leave-in treatment, before each and every blow-dry, to the tips of my hair in an effort to restore shine and seal my hairs cuticles.
For all my coloured blonde readers, I definitely think this drug-store brand is worth a try if you're seeking a product to maintain and stretch the blonde you love in between appointments! It is such a rarity to find salon quality products that don’t break the bank, but Dessange has provided this. I will definitely be incorporating these products into my everyday beauty routine.
While I didn't have the opportunity to sample any of the other Dessange product lines, there are additional product collections which are suited to various hair colours and types :)
