Hi everyone! So if you follow any of my social media then you know that I dyed my hair ombre'. I wanted a change and definitely wanted to dye my hair a bit lighter. But I was a bit nervous that going lighter would destroy my hair! Luckily Nexxus contacted me about trying out their Color Assure system. Basically the Color Assure system in a four step process that protects your hair from water damage and keeps your color vibrant for longer. I am a huge fan!
I tried it for three weeks and my hair was soft and smooth, super easy to do, and the color was perfect. Obviously when you first wash your hair after dyeing it the leftover color still washes out for the first few washes. Usually after about the first week my hair ends up being the perfect color and I am always so bummed when it starts to fade. So, after trying it out, my hair has yet to fade or start to damage. The key is in the pre-wash primer! That is what locks out the water damage and keeps your color vibrant! I have heard on different occasions how bad water can be for your hair; how minerals can build up leaving it extra dry resulting in a lot more breakage. The pre-wash primer is sulfate free, enriched with coconut, almond, arogon oil, and white orchird extract. The white orchird extract is what repels the water! Isn't that such a genius idea??
The only thing I would recommend is that you don't use it right before bed. Sleeping on it wet resulted in it being a lot greasier in the morning, but anytime I let it air dry or blow dried it, it lasted me for a few days. Which is perfect, since I tend to only wash my hair every three or four days. I also recommend paying attention to how much they tell you to use. Don't use too much, otherwise that can leave it greasy as well! I wanted to counter test it so I went to my other shampoo and conditioner for the past week and my hair has been SO DRY. Obviously I was expecting a little dryness from going lighter, but the difference from when I was using the Color Assure system to my regular shampoo and conditioner was like night and day. Overall, if you use the recommended amount and don't sleep with wet hair, I HIGHLY recommend it!
