Superdrug Colour Effects.

I've walked past these colour effects countless times and never thought to give them a go. So when I saw all of Superdrug's own brand was on buy one get one half price, I thought I would give them a whirl. In the past I've used Directions colour conditioners and these remind me very much of them, however Superdrug's are half the price. 

I tried the Rich Warm Brown for my roots and used the Cool Blonde for toning my ombre. I was really impressed with the results from both, but particularly impressed with the blonde toner. The brown conditioner is a tiny bit too light for my hair and has red undertones which mine doesn't. It's still great for a quick fix if you've not managed to dye your roots though. The blonde conditioner is actually purple toner, which is perfect for getting rid of orange, brassy tones in my ombre. It did a great job at brightening my ends up and left them a lot less orangey than before I conditioned.

The colour effects are so easy to use, you dampen your hair and massage a 10p sized amount into your hair, just like a shampoo. Then leave for 5 minutes and rinse out. As these are conditioners they leave your hair really soft and don't damage your locks. They're a fab way of injecting a bit of life into dull hair and amazing when I just don't have the time to dye my hair. There is lots of other colours to choose from too, I've linked the website page here.

Have you tried these?
