Wella Lifetex Colour Reflex Shampoo

I’m too vain to admit I’m going grey. I am so very in denial about it that I am still tweezing out each and every wiry grey strand as it appears, so not only am I fighting a losing battle, it’s also taking me friggin’ aaaaages. If I don’t stop, I’ll be bald, but I’m so obsessed that I’ve started to love trips to hotels with forensic bathroom lighting, and I’ve also noticed that lifts are a great place to spot interlopers. If I catch one over an inch long, it means I’ve obviously never spotted it, and it was there, FOR EVER, FOR ALL TO SEE. The horror!

Yeah yeah, I know. I should cop on, but I’m hangin’ on to my youth by the very (painted) fingernails and I’m just refusing to go down the dye route. So what I’m doing instead is  trying out shampoos with a birrava bit of colour in them. I know it doesn’t really cover grey hair, but it does shiney up and enhance the gruaig that’s still dark brown (sob). At the moment I’m liking Wella Lifetex Colour Reflex Shampoo for brown hair. In the hand, it feels lovely and thick and silky, and it’s a really nice sparkly brown too, thanks to illuminating ingredients.

The results? It’s properly moisturising, and doesn’t necessarily need to be followed with conditioner (heads up: there isn’t a matching conditioner, but there is a colour protection rinse and masque). I washed my hair last night, and today it feels thick, easy to manage and is sitting flat – for once. So, the verdict is very definitely a thumbs up. I’ll be buying this again, from Wella salons nationwide, for around €11.

    My dear Nana used to say that when you pull out one grey hair, 3 more grow in it’s place – argh! When I started going grey (about 3 years ago) colouring was the only option cos all my greys are at the front and I’m too vain to let them shine through…

  • Ladyelle says:

    I have this !! I only colour my hair to give it a bit of depth and shine and I use this if the colour starts to fade I find it very good !

  • hipntrendy says:

    hehehehe – Kristie, I used to do that as well. I finally gave up the fight when my hand started cramping as I had so many to pluck. LOL

  • Joanne says:

    sounds great!I am fighting a losing battle with the greys at the moment too. Would love if they did it in other colours?

  • Boozy Floozy says:

    i do it too, also (grossly) I can find them while watching telly coz they’re a different/thicker texture. am constantly pulling them out and find it very satisfying!
    my old job’s mirror totally highlighted them which at 21 I didnt like that much!

    I nearly crashed the car recently when I noticed my first grey hair. I’d just passed the quarter of a century mark and not quite ready for going grey yet. Haven’t spotted a new one yet though. Love these colour enhancer shampoo’s though, might try this out.

  • Boozy Floozy says:

    sweetie, you only saw your first one at 25? I’m 25 and have loads and started seeing them at 19! you lucky thing! you’ve another few years before you need to start worrying if they’re only starting now!

  • Admin says:

    yup, you can also get it for blondes and redheads, I think

  • sweetie1 says:

    Ya, I suppose. Think I’m going to get the hair dyed a nice rich colour at the weekend though so might get this after to keep it vibrant.
