I love keeping my blonde hair very ashen. I like white/silver blonde shades and start panicking when yellow tones start creeping up in my hair. I am so excited to try the new DryBar Blonde Ale system.
Most of the purple shampoos & conditioners I’ve tried have contained products that I try to avoid in my haircare products like sulfates and silicone. The entire DryBar Blonde Ale line is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and they don’t test on animals. They not only counteract brassiness and boost shine but also focus on nourishing, hydrating, and strengthening hair which is so important for my over processed hair. Thanks to fragrance notes of ginger, mint, and sandalwood the products also smell amazing. The ingredient highlights of Blonde Ale are:
- Lemon Extract – brightens highlights and preserves the integrity of the hair color.
- Sunflower Seed Oil – nourishes hair, increasing softness and manageability.
- Chamomile Extract – gently boosts blonde tones while increasing shine.
- Keratin – a highly moisturizing protein, reinforces the structure of the hair and helps prevent damage.
- Vegetable Proteins – strengthen and reinforce chemically treated/damaged hair.
Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo ($27 US/$33.75 CAD) This purple hued formula counteracts brassiness and prevents color degradation of blonde and highlighted hair. It also enhances shine and keeps hair luminous between colouring.
