Lee Stafford Bleach BLEAch BLondes Hair Care Review

Lee Stafford Bleach BLEAch BLondes Hair Care Review

When I was in comprehensive school, the hair care brand that I lusted after was always Lee Stafford.   From its very first launch, the bright, bold, pink packaging on the shelves reeled me in.  I bought my first bottles with my pocket money when I was about 13/14 and I've been using it on and off ever since.

Lee Stafford are the brand that I've bought products from for the longest time and I love that they constantly deliver fabulous results after every wash.

My hair is naturally a mid blonde but it is warm toned whereas I prefer my hair to be a cooler blonde.  I've gone for a variety of different cool blonde looks over the last couple of years since I've been going to the incredible Loreal Pro salon, Frances Marshall in Sunderland.

Up until last month, I was getting a full head of pre lightener (the none scary name for bleach) with the L’Oreal Metallics Ash Blonde Colour (INCREDIBLE- 3 parts tone to one part colour) with my Smartbond treatment in.  From my last visit, I've started to have a darker ash blonde colour applied throughout my hair with just a few highlights across the top section, followed by a toner and of course, the L'Oreal Smartbond treatment.  Frances Marshall use Smartbond in EVERY colour to keep the hair bonds as healthy and strong as they can be when you're having colour treatments!  These salon professional colour and toning products neutralise the warmth in my hair and give my hair the ash blonde colour and tone that I love but maintaining that at home is really important so that I can enjoy my colour for longer.

Since my hair naturally kicks out a lot of warmth, I've really had to try lots of different silver/purple shampoos and conditioners over the years to see what works for me.  There are plenty of posts on my blog on shampoo and conditioner recommendations for ash blonde hair and today I'm going to share with you another that I've used for a good couple of years now, ever since I saw Mikhila talk about it on Twitter and Youtube and thats the Lee Stafford BLEAch BLondes range from Boots.

Since going to the salon is a luxury, in between visits I use a range of products to keep my hair looking and feeling its best; generally thats a colour toning product once a week with nourishing hair care in between.

The Lee Stafford BLEAch BLondes hair care range is absolutely fantastic for prolonging my colour and never fails to make my hair look beautifully ash blonde.

The BLEAch BLondes Shampoo and Conditioner is a genius range that was created especially for hair that is bleached whether that's a full head, highlights or a fashion colour.  It promises no more brassiness, fade or breakage, just beautiful blonde hair that dazzles and shines.

The BLEAch BLonde Shampoo is a moisturising shampoo that lightly tones, refreshes and restores my blonde hair to the beautiful pure ash salon colour I love.  I use it as I would any other shampoo; massage through wet hair and rinse.  Sometimes, if my hair is looking particularly warm, perhaps if I've been out in the sun on holiday, then I'll leave it on for a couple of minutes but not any longer.

Usually when you leave blonde shampoos on longer than you directed, you get temporary violet tones, however, I found out by mistake that with these products you get a temporary pink tone to your hair. In all fairness, I actually really liked the effect this gave to my hair and it was perfect for a week or so before it washed out during the summer, but to combat this make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Lee Stafford are hair experts and know what they are talking about!

This shampoo contains purple pigment that prevents blonde hair turning brassy, or canary yellow. The combination of Lee Stafford's Pro-Blonde complex of panthenol, chamomile and moringa seed extract, are a fusion of multi-tasking ingredients that help keep hair squeaky clean, while encouraging natural shine to truly glow so that it doesn't feel stripped or dry after use like some toning hair care ranges can. This shampoo offers 21st century colour protection, which promises to help stop your hair colour from fading with heat styling, sunlight and damaged caused by UV.

Its amazing how much your hair colour can fade even from just straightening it as the heat causes havoc so even if you're not wanting to be ash blonde like me, if you hair is coloured then you really need to be using hair care that prevents colour fade.

After the shampoo, I apply the the BLEAch BLonde Conditioner which helps to ensure the hair colour is locked in and stays moisturised, sleek and silky soft. Using this as part of the BLEAch BLonde regime helps to ensure your hair looks healthy, glossy, sleek and smooth.  I love the way my hair feels after using this conditioner as it leaves it feeling so soft without weighing it down and causing my oily hair to become greasy more quickly!

There's also the Lee Stafford Moisturising Treatment from this brand to use once a week if you feel as though you're wanting a deep hair treatment for extra moisturise and repair.  I haven't used it before but I've been told great things from a fellow ash blondie!

In addition to the shampoo and conditioner, there’s also the Lee Stafford BLEAch BLonde Tone Correcting Conditioning Spray.  You simply spray the lightweight mist onto damp hair after every other wash and comb through which is easy to do as it feels quite conditioning and almost detangling in the hair.

This spray contains violet pigments that are designed to combat the brassy yellow tones that I don't love and it just leave a much more icy, cool look on platinum and ash blonde hair.  It isn't strong enough to use on its own without a toning shampoo and conditioner but really boosts the effect of these and the appearance of the hair when used as part of a colour protecting and toning hair care routine.

I absolutely love Lee Stafford products and the BLEAch BLonde range is one of the best, super strength ones out there in the shops and the one that I consistently go back to.  It never fails to make my hair look beautifully ash blonde!

The full Lee Stafford range is available at Boots and they often have 3 for 2 offers on, so you can get the full routine for less.
