A few weeks ago my hairdresser (also a very good friend) and I were out shopping. She suddenly said she thought my bleached blonde hair could do with being toned with this shampoo she knew of, but had forgotten the name of! We then found it on the supermarket shelf but didn't buy it. Whilst I was with her I got an email notification, which I glanced at but didn't read until I got home. It was from the PR for PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver, the exact same shampoo my hairdresser had recommended! How spooky is that!!
I was asked if I would take the One wash challenge! How could I resist after this.
"PRO:VOKE® Touch Of Silver is an expertly created range specifically for blonde, platinum, white and grey hair. The range enhances hair colour and ensures best toned results with a unique active violet pigment that neutralises yellowing, brassiness and dullness.
PRO:VOKE® Touch Of Silver provides the ultimate colour care for natural, dyed and highlighted hair offering visibly brighter hair in just one wash!"
Having only recently had my hair bleached and cut and despite my hairdresser herself having recommended the shampoo to tone it down a bit, I was nervous of taking the challenge. I can't explain why exactly, but it took a few days for me to muster the courage to use the kit. I needn't have worried. It was fine!
The photo's below were taken after my hair was bleached and cut but before the one wash challenge.
Here's how to take the challenge!
Step 1: Prime the hair by spritzing a little Pre-toning Treatment Primer onto wet hair. It works by smoothing the cuticles, locking in shine and protecting dry or damaged hair.
Step 2: Say goodbye to brassiness! Immediately wash the hair in the iconic purple Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo which contains active violet pigments to create a cool ashy hue and neutralise brassiness.
Step 3: Finish with the Touch of Silver Intensive Conditioner, which nourishes parched hair and leaves locks that radiate shine!
Here are the results!
I'm pretty sure there's a difference. My hair is certainly softer and I'm sure it's not as yellow! The smell of the kit is lush! I was quite shocked at the colour of the shampoo, though I'm not sure why! I mean, I've had purple hair before.
I will be using it again. Recommended use is 1-2 times a week. For a more intense transformation you can leave the shampoo on for 15-20 minutes. Maybe next time I'll be braver and try that!
I really like this range and would recommend it. Available from most supermarkets and larger Boots stores. The shampoo and conditioner has a RRP of £3.19 each.
Do you think there's a difference in the colour?
I was sent the kit for the purpose of this post.
