“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”
Well said, Marilyn. I wish for the world, I also wish for brighter and blonder hair (because I’m a fake blonde as we’ve chatted about before). All every fake blonde wishes for (I’m guessing here) if for our hair to stay blonder for longer, and to get rid of those orange/brassy undertones that appear out of NOWHERE after a few weeks. WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?
A while ago (here) we spoke about gentian violet and other hair care tips for fake blondes. Today I bring you the HOLY GRAIL of hair products for fake blondes: the Marilyn hair treatment from LUSH. It’s a pre-wash treatment (this was a new field to me) and it works like a charm!
When I say holy grail, I literally mean run to your nearest LUSH store right now and get it, or order it online because LUSH are super cool and they’ve recently launched their online store.
This hair mask contains chamomile which naturally brightens, lightens and adds shine to your hair. LUSH also added linseed mucilage and extra virgin olive oil which gives you hair extra strength! Did you know that back in the day, women in the Mediterranean used to put chamomile on their hair and sit out in the hot sun to lighten their hair colour – it was a much softer and gentler option than bleach!
If you’re a frequent hair mask/treatment user (I am not) then maybe this texture is familiar to you. I was a tiny bit weirded out by how runny it is. But after you’ve used it once, and you are blown away by its amazingness you completely forget about the strange texture and you start to worship this product like a crazy cult person. (I may have become a crazy cult person purely because of this product, I apologise).
And just to prove how this actually works, every time I come to work after having used this brilliant hair treatment I get asked if I’ve had my hair done/highlighted again. Yes girls, it works that well!
Love, bright blonde hair and crazy cults,
