Review - Toni & Guy brunette shampoo & conditioner

After my 21st birthday I started dying my hair, I think I was going through some sort of early mid-life crisis, but the need to re-do my roots every few weeks soon took it’s toll so I decided to try Colour B4 (review here) which stripped the colour out of my hair. The only problem was that it stripped it down to a coppery brown colour and not back to my original dark brown. I tried to get hold of John Frieda’s colour glaze to use as a toner but I think it’s discontinued so the next best thing I found was by Toni & Guy and it was their brunette shampoo and conditioner (£5.69 from Boots).

This is just a normal shampoo and conditioner but it does have colour enhancing pigments which help to intensify your colour. I use this maybe once a week just to boost my colour and now my hair has grown quite alot I don’t need to use it as often as it’s grown back it’s ‘proper’ colour.

(On the left is the shampoo and the conditioner is on the right.)

I was impressed with how well it did darken my hair and one time after using it I went to work and people kept asking my if I’d dyed my hair because it looked that much darker!
I would buy this again and they regularly have Toni & Guy on offer at Boots (2 for £8 or something similar) which means it’s really affordable to try.

I have never seen this, but with having dark hair I think this would be really worth a try! I will keep a nosey out for any offers x

Toni & Guy is on offer at the minute for 2 for £7 at Boots. I also had the brunette shimmer mist from the range but have to say I thought it was toss. I think they must have forgot to put the 'shimmer' in the can! Lee Stafford's bling spray is a million times better xx
