BLUE SHAMPOO | How I keep the yellow tones at bay

It may come as a shock to you all, but I'm not as naturally as blonde as I'd like to be. So I often have to combat any yellow tones to keep my locks looking a neutral and natural tone.

So I've picked out some of my favourite anti-yellow toners to share with you all.
From L - R: John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo (RRP: £5.99), Lush Daddy-O shampoo (RRP £5.75), PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver brightening shampoo (RRP £3.19) and Knight & Wilson Colour Freedom - White Blonde (RRP: £6.99)
Over the years of keep-up with my blonde locks I've tried many a products to tone out the yellow, while keeping them soft and hydrated - because if you're ever thinking of going blonde I warn you now (just like putting any dye on your hair) bleach can be very drying.

First up is the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo (I also use with the conditioner). I've always been quite a fan of John Frieda and a friend recommended this to me, so I gave it a try. I was quite impressed, it made my hair lovely soft and silky and after a few washes I could see it had done some toning to my hair. Though I do feel it may have been better for highlighted hair, rather than an all-over dyed blonde.

Next is Lush Daddy-O shampoo. I loved the idea of this: an all natural shampoo that's good for toning blonde hair. This was another I was impressed with, like the first, my hair was left smooth and, importantly, hydrated and my blonde was very shiny and toned after a few washes. It's definitely a lovely shampoo to use and quite the favourite of mine, especially knowing it's not damaging my hair. Plus you can't go wrong with hair smelling like Palma Violets!

The PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver (I also use the conditioner) is such a cult product I couldn't have NOT tried this. I got introduced to this first by my sister and it shows sure fast results. It get's to work instantly. My only issue with this is it can be a bit drying to your hair - I would definitely recommend a good intense conditioner for after. But hair is instantly toned.

Last, but not least, is Kight & Wilson Colour Freedon in White Blonde. I LOVE this. I apply this every few weeks and my blonde it leaves my hair shiny, smooth, hydrated-ish and a truly toned to a white blonde. Though I warn you, don't leave it on too long or you definitely risk getting blue streaks in your hair.

So these are my four faves for battling the dreaded yellow tones we all fear when making the plunge to go a beautiful blonde!

I'd love to know what you think and if you have any other recommendations send em' my way, I'd love to try them out!

Ciao for now,
