Growing up in a place where people obsess about maintaining healthy hair has really paid off. In Bangladesh, women tend to take of their hair by using oils and most will shave the girls hair so that it grows thicker every time. Yes, I was a bald child till I was about 6 or 7 years old. The childhood photos are a little embarrassing, but the result is undeniable. I’m truly thankful for my head full of thick hair.
I remember one day in high school, I went to school with braided pigtails. During the bus ride to school, my friend kept staring at my head and at one point started tugging on my pigtails! While tugging, she asked me if my hair was real!? The color of my hair was pitch black back then. It was so dark that sometimes in the moonlight it would get a blue hue.
Now let’s visit my college years. Although I appreciated my natural hair color, I noticed that it slowly started to look bland because of the one-dimensional color. I really couldn’t afford salon visits at the time, so I had to resort to store bought box colors. It worked for me because I wanted a slight change to my hair. Almost two year ago, I officially had my hair colored at a fancy salon. Getting an ombre hair color can be expensive, especially if you want get it done properly. The coloring and price also depends on the hair length. Around that time, the lob haircut was a huge trend. So I took the plunge, chopped my hair off and went ombre.
Now two years later, my natural black hair is starting to show. My hair is getting longer and I know I will loose my ombre tones soon. Luckily, I was introduced to John Frieda’s Rethink Colour products at an exclusive Miami Fashion Bloggers event in Brickell. It was exciting to learn that using shampoos and conditioners can help your hair color to go lighter or darker. Sounds too easy right, but guess what? It is!
I found the all new Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Shampoo, Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Conditioner and Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ In-Shower Treatment at my local Walmart store. It was easy to find the items at the shampoos and conditioners aisle. All the products I bought were under $10! The Visibly Brighter™ Treatment may not be available in all Walmart stores, but you purchase it at walmart.com. After using the Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Visibly Brighter™ Conditioner a couple of times, I noticed a subtle change to my current hair color. This product definitely works to eliminate the expensive salon visits. My hair is looking brighter and healthier with each use.
You can see more visible changes of the hair color in direct sunlight. I did this quick street style photo shoot with my friend in Wynwood to show all the dimensions of the hair color after I used the products. After using the Visibly Brighter™ Treatment, it helped to lighten the hair up to 1 shade. The treatment instantly lightens hair for a sun-kissed brunette look. It’s safe for natural, highlighted, and color-treated brunettes. Only lightens the natural spectrum, so hair won’t appear bleached or orange. Also the use of the Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Conditioner gradually brightens for natural-looking sun-kissed brunette & illuminates glowing tones. Coloring hair lighter can really brighten up the complexion too. Summer is for lighter hair and tanned body. Am I right ladies?
