Hi Beauties, in my early thirties, to my absolute horror, grey hair decided to make an appearance. My first reaction was to pull them out but that was definitely not the solution. So I resorted in spending lots of money at the salon covering up the grey hair, however that is also not the solution as it is so expensive to maintain.
About a year ago I made a decision to start embracing my grey hair as it is here to stay! I slowly started transitioning from dark brown to blond. I believe that grey hair could be camouflaged by blond much easier that the dark brown hair I was sporting. But with blond came another frustration, damage and undesirable yellow hues. I started visiting the salon less frequently to allow my hair to recover but oh my…….. I started getting frustrated as my grey hair made me feel dull and washed out.
So I have been trying all the Silver Shampoos I could find but none was giving me the result that I was looking for. That was until my friend Lizna from With Elizabeth H stumbled across a advert for Fanola No Yellow Shampoo. I had to hear about this shampoo for weeks non stop until it arrived. You can head to her blog and read her review as well.
The rest is history, it was a match made in heaven and I fell head over heals in love with the shampoo.
What does Fanola No Yellow Shampoo do?
Fanola No Yellow shampoo is a purple shampoo that contains a deep purple pigment that counteracts my hair brassiness. It neutralizes my grey hair helping me maintain a beautiful rich silver colour.
How does silver shampoo work?
Purple is opposite yellow on the colour wheel, so when they’re mixed, they off-set each other for a more neutral shade. When applied to your hair the purple pigment is absorbed, and the violet hues neutralises the undertones leaving your hair with a beautiful colour.
How to use the Shampoo?
I only use the shampoo twice a week. It is recommended that you leave it on between 3 – 5 min. But I don’t use with caution and have tempted fate and escaped with a beautiful purple hue that reminded me of my gran. But leaving in as directed I achieve a cool white silver shade that is the craze at the moment.
Fanola Restructuring Mask
The Fanola Restructuring Mask is just as amazing as the shampoo. The smell reminders me of candy I had as a child…. remember the good old days before my grey hair made their appearance.
The mask has nourishing and has a detangling action leaving the hair soft and nourished. It is enriched with milk proteins and is excellent for dry and frizzy hair. My health of my hair has also improved.
A 350ml Fanola No Yellow Shampoo retails for R250, 1 liter for R445, the Hair Mask is 500ml for R250 and can be ordered from the South African supplier’s facebook page over here.
