Shampoos or Rinses for Blonde and Light Brunette Hair
Thursday, 13 October 2011 | Tricia
I used to rinse my hair with an infusion chamomile tea. 2 chamomile tea bags or a heaped tablespoon of chamomile flowers steeped in boiling water for 15 minutes. After washing and conditioning I rinsed my hair with the infusion. It gave golden tints and highlights to my dark ash blonde/light mousey hair.
Now I use Logona Chamomile Shampoo it has a similar effect and also very slightly colours some of my grey to a very light blonde colour. I find it has a stronger effect when I leave the shampoo on for 5 or 10 minutes – although it does not say that on the bottle. In some lighting I think it gives not just a gold tint but a slight strawberry blonde tint.. This shampoo also gives my hair good shine and condition.
I have also tried the Aubrey Organics Chamomile Shampoo and Conditioner. This also gives a slight tint but a lighter and more yellowy tint than the Logona Chamomile Shampoo. I prefer the Logona Shampoo as it makes my hair more shiny than the Aubrey shampoo.
I have used Palette By Nature Grey Blending System Light and found that it did cover my grey quite well to a light blonde colour and gave my dark blonde hair the impression that it was more blonde (slightly golden but not brassy) and less mousey. Palette by nature grey blending system light comprises 3 bottles – a shampoo, a conditioner and a fixative spray. You leave both the shampoo and the conditioner on for 10 minutes or so. After rinsing out you apply the fixative spray. The idea is that you use this several times to build up the colour on your grey, and then use it once or twice a week to maintain the colour.
