You may have seen in my recent huge beauty haul post that I picked up some of the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes shampoo, my sister who is also my hair dresser, recommended I use a shampoo for blonde hair and my friend Khila always speaks highly of the Lee Stafford so I thought I'd give it a go and I have been using it ever since buying it around 6 weeks ago and today thought I'd let you know my thoughts on it.

I have my hair tinted, it is naturally blonde but not quite as blonde as it is and I have the added bonus of a few pesky grey hairs to cover now too, so I have my hair cut and coloured every 5 weeks. My sister is a hairdresser and has been doing my hair for over 20 years now since she became a hairdresser so she knows my hair and what I like perfectly.
I have been having the same colours in my hair for years, I had an all over tint and then some thin strands of hair coloured with 2 or 3 different shades of blonde to blend it all together, it always looked lovely but I noticed it started to look really warm and brassy on the ends and my daughter had said it was particularly bad at the back too. I mentioned it to my sister and she said that the change is probably down to my medication since we haven't changed the colours, she decided to change the tint I have and use a more ashy toned tint which she combs through my hair for a few minutes once I've been under the dryer, she said it would take a few times of having it dyed to completely knock the warm tones out and in the meantime to try a shampoo for bleach blonde hair as it would also help. I started off using the Touch Of Silver shampoo and re purchased it a couple of times but then I saw the Lee Stafford was on offer in Boots so I thought I'd give that a try since Khila spoke so highly of it.
The shampoo comes in a clear plastic tube and is a deep purple colour, the tube looks purple but it isn't it is clear and the purple is the colour of the shampoo.
The first time I used the shampoo I was blown away, it is excellent and completely toned down the warmness in my hair, I used it when my hair was due to be coloured which is when the warmness starts to come through a little more and I couldn't believe it when it just wiped it out, it is brilliant. My eldest daughter had her hair bleached a couple of years ago and she hasn't done anything to her hair for 2 years, she has just let it grow out but recently had quite a lot cut off the length and it now looks like a deliberate ombre it is lovely but it was really brassy. I told her I'd bought the Lee Stafford shampoo and said she should try it, she said she didn't think it would do much since her hair hasn't been bleached for over 2 years but she would give it a go, the transformation was incredible, her hair was transformed from a brassy blonde to a lovely ashy blonde, it looked so different that everyone was asking her if she'd had her hair dyed the day after.
Not only is the shampoo great for knocking out those brassy tones in my hair, it also leaves my hair feeling lovely and soft and it gives it a nice shine too which is unusual for blonde hair. My hair is very oily and if I wash my hair it will usually need washing the day after but I can go every other day using the Lee Stafford which is another bonus. The instructions on the back of the bottle say to use the shampoo once or twice a week so if I am washing my hair more than twice a week I will use a different shampoo in between but if I am only having my hair washed twice a week I use the Lee Stafford both times
I agree completely with what Lee Stafford has to say about the shampoo, it is brilliant for toning my hair but also leaves it feeling great and shiny too, I am so impressed with it, I wish I had used it from the start as it is so much better than the Touch Of Silver shampoo in my opinion.
Another great thing about the shampoo is that for a bit of a different look you can leave it on for a couple of minutes and it leaves your hair a gorgeous pastel lilac shade that washes out the next time you wash it, my daughter has done this and it looks so good, I'm not so brave but it does look lovely and is great for a bit of a change.
I am extremely impressed with the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes shampoo and highly recommend it if you have dyed blonde hair that looks brassy or like mine is looking warm and you want more of an ashy tone, it is fantastic and I am so happy with it, I have re purchased the shampoo since the haul where I first mentioned it, I have stocked up on it now my daughter is using it too, it really is brilliant and I will continue to re purchase it, I love the way my hair looks since using it.
If you would like to try the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes shampoo, you can find it on the Boots website HERE for £6.99, there is currently a 3 for £15.00 on Lee Stafford products which is a brilliant deal.
