Phyto Sublime Colour Protect Hair Treatments Review

Phyto Sublime Colour hair treatments

I have another hair review for you lovelies, aren't you a lucky bunch?! So following stripping the red dye from my hair, and then giving it a little treat with the TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 second treatment shot, my hair was well on its way to getting back to it's beautiful shiny self. What I now needed to get my hands on was a decent protective shampoo and conditioner that would enhance and prolong colour, as I don't want to have to be recolouring again too soon!

I took the opportunity to ask my gorgeous sister, who is currently training to be a hairdresser, what she thought would be good and she managed to get her hands on a little samples of the Phyto Sublime Colour Hair Treatments.

TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 Seconds Treatment Shot

TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 seconds treatment shot

This TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 second treatment shot was actually part of my August Glossybox, and I have to say, I wasn't that interested in trying out when I saw it. My hair can be such a nightmare with different products, but since I stripped the red dye from my hair, I felt like maybe it needed a little TLC so decided it would be worth a go.

After washing my hair with my normal shampoo, I applied contents of the little bottle onto my hair. It was very much like a normal conditioner. The instructions say to avoid your roots, and concentrate on the ends of the hair.

I have quite long hair, so this little bottle only just covered all my hair, in all honesty I probably would have liked a little more. If I was shopping for it myself, I would definitely have bought two bottles, the only reason I didn't was because this one came from my August Glossybox.

Removing Red Hair Dye using ColourB4

Removing red hair dye with colour b4

As you guys will have noticed from various pictures posted on my blog, I have been a long-term red-head imposter! I felt that the vibrant red hair had done it’s time and it was time for a change back to something more simple; something that perhaps didn’t require me to be constantly topping up my colour every 2-3 weeks to keep it looking the way I wanted.

BEFORE | Removing red hair dye with colour b4
I wasn’t sure what colour I wanted to go to, all I knew is I wanted a change and I wanted to avoid a disaster!

After speaking to several hairdressers and other people, I began getting a little concerned when people were constantly telling me that red was the most difficult colour to remove and I would probably have to spend some time being an odd colour as it would be so tricky to get an even, decent colour, especially after frequently dying my hair bright red for a year.

I decided to bite the bullet on Monday and went out on my lunch break to grab the bits and bobs I needed for my transformation.

I opted for ColourB4 in extra strength, although this took some deciding. I was torn between this one and the ColourB4 made for frequent use. Although looking back, both would have probably done what I needed, I opted for extra strength, having heard all the comments about red being tough to remove.
