As much as I love being a blonde, it can be quite a lot of upkeep! From the 6-weekly highlights, to conditioning treatments and oils and everything in between, blonde has never been an easy option. Thankfully though, dry and brassy hair isn’t something I need to even think about thanks to my new discovery of Jo Hansford’s Platinum Shampoo and Conditioner.
Just in case you haven’t heard of Jo Hansford, she is one of the world’s greatest colourists. Operating from her beautiful Mayfair salon, she’s highlighted everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Liberty Ross. Even if you can’t get through to London to have your colour done, you can take care of it with Jo Hansford’s incredible product range.
The Platinum Shampoo and Conditioner combo has been designed especially for blonde, highlighted and grey hair as the formula clarifies and brightens colour as well as removing any yellow tones which have built up. For some strange reason, my hair, no matter how blonde, always tends to err on the warm side, which is something I’m not a fan of, so the violet duo is something I can use a couple of times per week. It’s super simple to use – you just suds up as you would with your regular choice, but be warned, it’s seriously vibrant! I like to leave the shampoo in for a minute or two, just to let everything get to work. The shampoo foams up beautifully, and it smells absolutely incredible! The grapefruit fragrance is just the thing for waking me up in the morning, and the whole bathroom smells divine once I get out of the shower! The conditioner has a perfectly light texture which is great if you wash your hair daily like I do. Jo Hansford has incuded pomegranate oil to hydrate ends, and it works incredibly well to stop any discolouration. Once my hair has been blow dried, it feels super soft, and it’s lovely and shiny, even without my regular finish of serum. Most importantly though, my colour feels super fresh, and it really cools the tone down. There isn’t a hint of brassiness of warmth, and I feel salon fresh!
Jo Hansford’s Platinum Shampoo is priced at £16.00 and the Platinum Conditioner is priced at £18.00 and both are available here.
