I trialled the Glossy Blondes Shampoo and Conditioner, which came at an opportune time as I was between highlights. The shampoos in the range are free of foaming agents (also known as SLS – Sodium Lauryl Sulphate), which have been thought to potentially irritate the scalp, strip natural oils from the hair and dull the colour.
Anyone who’s had a ‘Brazilian blow Dry’ will know that you can’t use any shampoo containing sulphates as it’ll negate the effects of the keratin.
Coloured hair is very popular, but the sun, pollution, diet and lifestyle can affect its appearance.
Our Glossy Blondes range with organic lemon peel and chamomile enhances the glistening and reflective properties of blonde, colour treated and highlighted hair.
Glossy Blondes Shampoo and Conditioner helps maintain natural, long-lasting colour the organic way.
These Organically led products contain no harsh chemicals with little or no foaming agents and therefore may not lather in the way that non-organic formulas with high levels of foaming agents do but do not affect product performance in any way.
The DGJ Organics range was originally developed by celebrity hairdresser and colourist Daniel Galvin Junior 10 years ago when there were no organic haircare products available. All products were rigorously salon tested and approved by Daniel and these very formulas are those still used today.
The shampoo is a bright yellow colour; it’s a thin consistency and smells of cucumber and ‘hair salon’. The first shampoo doesn’t lather up, as expected, but the second wash (use very little this time), certainly does and actually foams up quite nicely.
The conditioner is slightly thicker and more of a white ‘cream’ consistency. It does smell a little funky in the bottle, but the fragrance doesn’t linger on the hair when it’s been rinsed out.
I alway think hair conditioner falls into two categories: The ones that ‘coat’ the hair (which feel immediately smoother) and the ones that are ‘absorbed’ by the hair. This one is absorbed, which means the hair isn’t easier to comb through afterwards (you will definitely need a quick session with your Tangle Teezer).
There’s a nice payoff, because hair is definitely softer after blow drying. It’s also pleasingly shiny too. I think this is a great little (affordable) duo to freshen up blonde hair in between salon visits.
