I was watching The Simpsons the other day and Marge was pretty upset at Homer for spilling family secrets…including the fact that she colored her hair using blue dye #56. In fact, Homer says, “She’s been gray as a mule since she was seventeen.”
Guess what Marge? Me too! But I don’t care if people know I color my hair. What bothers me is when it fades even before I need my roots done. So I was happy to test Color Wow’s Color Security hair products, especially since Marcia reviewed and loved their Root Cover Up.
The Color Wow Color Security Shampoo ($22) is sulfate-free, which helps prevent color from fading. Even though it doesn’t have sulfates, it still has a nice, thick lather. The amino-heavy ingredients keep hair strong, shiny, and moisturized. Plus, it has LCD technology to prevent the hair cuticle from swelling. This is really the key to keeping hair color vibrant.
The Color Security Conditioner ($23) works great with the shampoo since it has conditioning agents that don’t dull hair color. Instead, it has Sealicon color shield complex, which actually creates a smoothing shield around each individual hair strand, making your ‘do’ wonderfully shiny. It doesn’t weigh my fine hair down at all, instead creating lots of body and volume.
I think my favorite product from Color Wow is the Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac ($18). This super cool styling product seals in moisture, locks in color, and makes hair extremely shiny. See the shimmers? That’s mica, and it really makes a difference. Hair is stunningly shiny but still looks natural. I love this, especially since I don’t have any other hair product like it.
If you have been gray as a mule since you were seventeen, or if you just color your hair for the fun of it, definitely try out Color Wow hair products to keep that color looking amazing. - Lisa
