Review: John Frieda Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo and Conditioner

20170129_1606531

This line is specialized specifically for brunettes with a selection of products to either brighten or deepen your brown hair. It claims to maximize your hair colour’s potential. It works with both natural and chemically processed hair.

I gave the brightening subtle lightening one as I want my hair lighter.

It’s called “visibly brighter” which mean it doesn’t directly state that they will make the hair any shades lighter. The bottle states:

*“Give your brunette hair a natural-looking, illuminating glow. Formulated with honey and marigold flower extract, our Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo  cleanses and gradually infuses golden tones to illuminate the spectrum of your brunette color.” Honey has great moisturizing benefits for dry and damaged hair, which is very helpful for those with colour treated hair. Marigold is also great for to help repair and nourish.

* “Hydrate your hair with a natural-looking, illuminating glow. Formulated with honey and marigold flower extract, our Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Conditioner moisturizes your hair and illuminates the spectrum of brunette tones”

And as you can see from the ingredients listed below it doesn’t contain harsh things like peroxide and ammonia which damage your hair so there aren’t really hair lightening ingredients to bleach the hair.

Overall hair did look brighter and glossier over time. The products do burn the scalp a bit but don’t be too alarmed when that actually happens.
