Trying Brilliant Brunette This Time

Friday April 15, 2011   

:deco14: Brilliant Brunette by John Frieda.
:deco9: Shampoo & Conditioner. :deco15:
:deco11: Started using these this week.

I was using the Sheer Blonde & Go Blonder versions last year. I was happy with the results then. :deco10: Almost too good of results because when I stopped using it this summer, in the right light, it was a bit noticeable for a little while. :deco13: *gulp* Thankfully it was mostly noticeable in photos and not in person LOL. :ok:

Best case scenario this stuff darkens my natural blonde highlights but I’d be happy if it just boosted the darker portions of my hair making it shine and look richer. :deco2: Only my blonde hair has shine, so when I’m outside or in bright lighting I look more blonde than when I’m indoors in darker lighting. Ugh I don’t care. Maybe it’ll do nothing but it’s a nice shampoo anyway. :deco15: My natural hair is so multi-colored idek :deco13: …

When I’m done with these bottles I’ll go outside & take a photo & compare it to this photo from the entry I posted before I started using it. :ok:

    these shampoos are cool, or at least the IDEA of them is cool. why can’t hair just change exactly how we want it when we want it to, though D:

      Why must we get bored of color too??!! xD I’m interested to see how this works out. If it makes no change I guess the Sheer Blonde line is actually meant for me LOL

  2. Tori says:

    Hope it works!! Honestly it was because of you that I recently tried the Go Blonder line to ‘boost up’ my new colour & sh*t really does work, haha! XD
    Can’t wait to see your results bb~~

  3. Barbs says:

    I love love love these products :D

    • jenny says:

      YAAY \:D/ I know I’ve talked to a few people who have use Brilliant Brunette and I LOVED the Sheer Blonde line already so I feel in good hands \:D/

  4. Charlene says:

    omgooooosh i love that stop! i had used the one for red heads but….it got discontinued? I don’t see it on shelves anymore. So sad…But I agree this stuff gives you shine!

    • jenny says:

      I see it every once in awhile. Actually the Sheer Blonde last year was a bit difficult to find sometimes!!! It was often sold out Dx but seems the Brilliant Brunette line is ALWAYS in stock thankfully.

      • Charlene says:

        O really? maybe I need to just do a super hunt for it! and I just realized I wrote ‘stop’ instead of ‘stuff’ umm…I’m going to go to bed now haha…

        • jenny says:

          LOL it’s ok, my words are often wrong because my iPhone “corrects” them incorrectly lol. I noticed CVS often had 2 for 1 sales on the Sheer Blonde stuff last year!

  5. Vermillion says:

    I hope you can get the result you want ^^

    My mum got bought one of the products from this line though it didn’t suit my hair.

  6. Courtney says:

    Nice! I love brunette personally (biased!) and I’d love to see what this does to your hair. I’d like to give it a try too if it’s not too $$. :D

  7. Rubi says:

    you make EVERYTHING look so darn pretty! lol
    Your hair would look so gorgeous in a light brown shade, like stuck “between blond and brown” in my opinion! :D

  8. Dena says:

    these products are awesome!
    I love the smell too

    • jenny says:

      Yea I was surprised that the Sheer Blonde & Brilliant Brunette smell so different from one another though xDD! But makes sense due to ingredients :P

  9. Oh my gosh, John Frieda has saved my blonde hair! Without these products, my hair would not be the color it is ^^ I live and breathe for these bottles! haha, well the blonde ones!

  10. Yuki says:

    I really liked the John Frieda collection♪ But it’s a little bit expensive, I think.
    I look forward to see your result!

  11. アジサイ says:

    these products look awesome! I’ve heard lot of good reviews for John Frieda’s products! Hope it works and get you the result you want !!

    Another thing I wanted to ask, it’s not about the hair products but about the “shiny heart effect” on your picture!
    I’ve seen it before on a gal picture and was wondering how can you do that? Is it an iphone related app?
    I think the effect is so cute so I wanted to know how you do so!

  12. Samantha says:

    Back in the day (errr, five years ago) I used the “Luminous Color Glaze” and it worked! I was so happy/shocked. It really brought out the brown in my hair. :3 Pleased Samantha was pleased. Plus it was still when I was living in Texas and it was a lot cheaper than it is now in NYC.~~

    • jenny says:

      Yea I see those glazes are still around too! I thought about using them but I don’t want to push it with my perm, so I’m sticking to something as simple as the shampoos for now.

  13. Jenn says:

    The products look interesting! But I have jet black hair so I have no idea if they’d suit me.

    BTW, I remember reading that you’re into rose scented stuff lately. Did you know Prada released a new rose scent lately for their infusion line? I love their Infusion d’iris so maybe you’d love their infusion de rose too. :D

  14. Ys says:

    I have these shampoos too :) I don’t think they’ve really made my hair any darker but they are really good shampoos.

  15. cin says:

    Does it actually change the colour of your hair? O_O I never knew about this!!

  16. Jenii says:

    There’s always color rinses (pigmented shampoos) or clear coats (perm-safe :D) to give an overall shine.
