John Frieda Go Blonder Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Alright, I know I said I was done but I guess I just cannot stay away from blogging.

I have been hearing a lot of good reviews about this product from other fellow blondes. So when I was at my local drugstore I decided to pick it up. Plus, they were having a Buy 2 get 1 free so I decided to pick up Go Blonder duo and the full repair since my hair needs it badly and...well...it's free haha

My hair is pretty platinum blonde

To be honest, my hair is as light it could be. I don't really care if it could get any lighter and what not. I cared most about the health of my hair. I heard this shampoo makes blonde hair healthier and I thought it was going to keep my hair color and act as a toner.

can I just say that this is THE WORST of the worst? 
This made my platinum blonde hair YELLOW and dull. It did the opposite for me and instead of making my hair healthier, it made my hair more damaged...not really damaged but when I get out of the shower, my hair is so dry and tangled.

Also, when it dries I feel like my hair has glue in it. I like to curl my hair a lot and let me just say that John Frieda Go Blonder + Curled hair = bad idea.
It was so hard to detangle my hair and just this shampoo made my hair worse than when I bleach it.

To top it all off, This product gave me chemical burns. I have no idea why since it's ammonia free and peroxide free. I would have these weird looking rash on my neck. I have never tried a product that is so horrid.

I have no complain about the full repair though.

I suggest you stay away from this product. But then again, I am a bleached blonde, I dont know how it works on a natural blonde.

So If you are a bleached blonde, I wouldnt even touch this product with a 10 inch stick. It will make your hair dull and yellow and makes it even more damaged. I also had an allergic reaction which is just a straight NO NO NO
the only good thing about this is the smell.

I would give it 1.5/5 stars

I am so returning it. It's such a dissapointment.

Aww, I'm sorry you had a horrid experience with it. To me, its absolutely wonderful. I took all the yellow out of my hair and took it to a platinum...maybe it made it yellow because you were already platinum? Idk lol But I hope you find something awesome :) x
