Well, I could make dumb blonde jokes all day, but I’m just going to mispel a cuple words and move on to the product :)
The big question from people (not just women) who color their hair is “How can I get the color to last longer?” The market is flooded with “color safe” products, but how do you know if they really work?
Naturally my hair is dishwater blonde which is not a good look on me or anyone else for that matter. Every two months, I have Rafael highlight my hair with bleach (not color) to maintain a bright and vibrant blonde. Because he uses bleach to achieve the platinum hue, products that protect color are ineffective on my hair. So when Bed Head‘s Dumb Blonde showed up on my doorstep and claimed to “safeguard against fading so colour tone stay pure & perky” even on BLEACHED hair, I got really excited!
For the last 4 weeks I’ve used the shampoo and conditioner. Honestly…I have no idea if it’s working. Do you know if your color protecting products work?? Or do they just keep our hair healthy which causes the color to hang on longer?
When I use hair care products I look for four things: smell, lather, moisture, and price. In the case of Dumb Blonde, the lather is good; the intense vanilla smell is too girly for me; and my hair seems to be a little dry. Since I haven’t had a good experience with it, the price is not an issue. However, if my friend Kitty got her hands on this stuff, she would go crazy for it. Her hair is a little bit oily, and she LOVES anything with vanilla fragrance. To each her own :)
Maybe I’m missing the boat here on the whole color guard/safe/lockdown “technology.” I just want my hair to be shiny and soft. If there was a product that I could say without a doubt preserves hair color, I would pay a pretty penny for it.
