After spending the last six months or so of 2016 with fabulously, whacky colourful hair I’ve finally packed up the plastic gloves and mixing bowl and decided to embrace my bleach blonde locks again. I absolutely loved having a different look but I decided it was a little too hard to manage and wasn’t all that cost effective.
I figure that I’ve put my hair through it’s paces and thought it was time that I gave it some extra love and attention and treat myself to a much needed hair mask. I especially wanted to try one specifically for blondes as I’m almost due for a salon visit and wanted to take some of the brassiness out and pop some nutrients back in.
I’ve used quite a few different purple shampoos in the past as they work fabulously on blonde hair to hide brassy tones. The thinking behind that is that when we wash our hair with purple shampoo, our hair absorbs a small amount of purple pigment, which cancels out red and yellow (brassy) undertones. So a purple hair mask would basically do the same thing, right?!
I’d heard lots of good things about Brite Organix and their organic, ethical hair products and I thought that it sounded like a winner. I was ready to get my hair back to awesome, as the pack claimed.
What I didn’t expect from the Brite Organix Masque For Blonde Hair (Blackcurrant) ($9.99 at Priceline) was for it to turn my hair purple! Now I know you might me thinking “But Rosie, you just HAD purple hair, so what’s the big deal?” Well it totally stained my hair expectantly! What the actual?
Even after three shampoos (and vigorous ones at that) my hair is still a lovely shade of lavender! It’s soft and feels lovely but it’s BLOODY PURPLE!
Have any other blondes tried this and found a similar result?
I’d be interested to hear how the other masque’s in the range are and whether they’d be worth trying. In regards to this one I’d give it a wide berth if you’re not up for stained hair.
