Although I have very dark hair naturally, I’ve been colouring it for a while to keep a richer, dark tone, and now, cover a few greys – ugh! Since I started colouring my hair I found it would always fade quickly and my red tones would start to show through after just a few washes, which can be very frustrating. So when I was asked to test out Redken’s Chromatics Ultra Rich, I immediately said yes. I mean who wouldn’t want to have rich and healthy looking hair, right?! I’ve been a long-time fan of Redken’s products thus far, so I was eager to see what they had to offer for this dull looking hair of mine.
I recently met with Redken artist, Marie-Eve Faucher, from Salon Tocci that used Redken’s latest product called: Chromatics Ultra Rich, which launched this month. I haven’t changed my hair colouring product in years and I was a bit worried at first. After consulting with Marie-Eve, I felt more comfortable and was excited to go through with it, because of her longevity with colouring hair and knowledge of Redken. The great thing about this product is that it has zero ammonia, which means there’s no unpleasant odour or an itchy irritation like I normally get using my regular hair colour. Once my hair was coloured, washed and styled, my first thought was how dark and rich it looked. I’m so glad I took the risk to try a new hair colour, because I am extremely satisfied with it. Even after 3 washes, it kept its shine and felt soft. I strongly recommend you test this hair colour product out for yourself!
I was gifted with Redken’s “Colour extend magnetics” shampoo and conditioner to help extend the colour of my hair. Not only do they smell good, but they work wonders, keeping my hair colour dark, which is said to last for a long period of time with the “colour locking system” and the shampoo is sulfate-free!
For someone with a very busy lifestyle such as myself, time is precious and having thick, heavy hair doesn’t help. So, my Redken artist, Marie-Eve Faucher advised that Redken’s “Pillow Proof” express primer works wonders for my hair type. Although I was sceptical at first, I had to test it out for myself because you will never know unless you try. After my first time using it, I was blown away *pun intended*! It literally cut my blow dry time in half. Let’s just say I’ll be using this primer on the regular.
Tip: Make sure you shake well before spraying onto hair.
