It’s no secret that I am very precious about my hair, I have spent a long time growing and caring for my hair to ensure it is in amazing condition. Trust me, this was no mean feat as my hair has been pretty much every colour in the past, from red to purple to brown to now blonde!
I am naturally a mousy brown colour, but started experimenting with dye when I was early on in senior school, which was probably down to my mum being a hairdresser. I started with subtle highlights and then progressed on to be more experimental, don’t get me wrong I wasn’t super experimental, I never went green or anything (apart from that one time I went purple in year 10!). After senior school, I then decided to go a rich brown colour for a while before deciding I wanted to go blonde.
I started going to my now hairdresser, who is amazing by the way! And four years on my hair has never looked or felt better. Obviously the transition from brown to blonde is not a quick process and it took a long time to get to where I am now. My hairdresser has over time, cared for and dyed my hair in a way that didn’t destroy it and I am now a beautiful ashy grey blonde and I love it!
Obviously it’s not just about your hairdresser looking after your hair, I was well aware if I went blonde, my hair care routine would have to take a step up. I needed to ensure I looked after my hair so that it stayed in a good condition. Having used Aussie shampoo and conditioner for a while (which was great by the way), when I went an ashy grey blonde my hairdresser suggested I try a purple shampoo as this would work to tone down the brassy shades.
After a little bit of research, I decided to try Pro:Voke Touch of Silver shampoo and conditioner and let me tell you, I have never looked back. I use the Brightening shampoo and intense conditioner as well as the colour care shampoo and conditioner. The brightening shampoo and intense conditioner are the products that contain the toner to knock out brassiness. The products do a great job and ever since I started using them I have had amazing ashy hair that lasts until my next hair appointment. Because these products have toner in, you need to wait at least two weeks after your last hair colour before you start using them and do no use them every time you wash your hair.
Thats where the colour care shampoo and conditioner come in. You use these products in between using the toner products above. These products nourish and look after the hair and my gosh they do an amazing job! My hair always feels so soft and healthy when I use all of the products mentioned, which is amazing considering I have quite thin hair but a lot of it. It can sometimes feel very dry and flat! I wash my hair about 3 times a week (in my experience over washing can cause the hair to be dry and brittle) and I use the brightening and intense shampoo and conditioner once a week and the colour care set twice a week.
If you are looking for a silver shampoo and conditioner I would definitely recommend the Pro:voke products, they work really well! However, If you already use silver hair care products I would love to know what you use, I would love to try something new! Also I would love some good recommendations for a hair mask, so I can give my hair that little bit of oomph! Leave me a comment if you have anything to recommend
