I’ve tried almost every silver shampoo and toning product since I went ashy blonde last year. One that I tried late in the year came from US brand, Celeb Luxury – called Gem Lites Colorwash.
These toning shampoos have actual colour in them, and will keep your hair colour looking fresh, vibrant and healthy. They are also cruelty-free and vegan friendly, which is always good to know.
Excuse lack of makeup but loving the results of using the @celebluxury #gemlitescolorwash for blondes. It’s great! 👍🏻👍🏻 . . #gemlitescolorwash #salonsuccess #celebluxury #myhair #blondie #blond #blondes #ashblonde #toningshampoo #happyhairday #friyay #blonder #beautyblogger #beautywriter #beautyjournalist
There are ten tones of the Gem Lites Colorwash (£25.95) for all hair colours, foil highlights, and balayage. Each tone is inspired by gemstones. I’ve been using Flawless Diamond which is an ‘anti-yellow whitnener’. When you want your blonde as ashy as possible, you need to look after it between salon visits. This works on all blondes, whites, silvers, foil highlights or balayage, by brightening and bringing out the reflective facets in the hair. It really does get great results.
It also cleanses well and conditions well, and should best be used every other wash. Other shades include Ruby to maintain redness and bring out red tones in dark hair, Amber for copper and copper brown hair, Cognac Quartz for caramel blondes, as well as Tourmaline, Citrine, Sunstone, Fire Opal, Brown Diamond, and Tahitian Pearl.
Celeb Luxury also has a three step Gem Lites System which includes Gem Lites Shinewash, Bonditioner, and Celeb Secret Fix.
The Shinewash (£25.95) is a sulphate-free shampoo, rich,creamy high-lather, with delicate cleansing properties. The Bonditioner (£25.95) is a dual-use pre-wash conditioner for porous hair, and can be used before or after washing. I know I should be using pre-wash conditioners, but I always forget – don’t you?!
The Celeb Secret Fix (£16.95) adjusts to the texture and porosity of all hair types -straight, wavy or curly – coarse or fine, thick or thin.
It also gives protection from styling tools, as well as humidity and frizz control. I’ve not tried this product yet, but, again, this is another thing I am terribly lazy with, so I really should make looking after my hair more my new year resolution.
