Jerome Russell Bblonde Silver Maximum Colour Toner







Jerome Russell Bblonde Silver Maximum Colour Toner* - £4.49

A few weeks ago I made the mistake of getting my roots done on my regular hairdresser's day off. I've been going to Cutting Room Creative in Leeds for the last five years & overall I've had really good experiences with them. Things seem to have gone downhill lately though after they shut down their city centre salon & relocated all their staff to the Chapel Allerton branch. My last visit was a complete nightmare. The colourist didn't sufficiently lift my roots before toning them. Then they had to cleanse out the toner & bleach it again before toning it again. I had asked for the same deep grey hair colour that I had back in January & I left with my hair looking more yellow than when I had arrived at the salon. So it was left up to me to tone my hair the colour that I actually wanted it to be. Luckily Jerome Russell had sent me their Bblonde Silver Maximum Colour Toner & I'm really happy with the results!

If you have pre-lightened or naturally blonde hair you can use one of Bblonde's five different toners to refresh your colour & improve the condition of your hair. I was quite tempted to try their Pink Maximum Colour Toner but as I was craving granny hair again I went with the silver one instead. I loved the look of the colour on the box & it seemed very easy to apply. The toner is ready to use straight out of the bottle plus this product doesn't contain any ammonia or peroxide so it is safe & gentle on the hair. I simply washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo, sectioned my hair & applied the toner with a tint brush. You get 75ml of the dark purple liquid in each bottle & I found that it was the perfect amount for me. I have just had my hair cut to shoulder length though so if your hair is much longer than mine I would suggest getting two bottles. The toner goes on nicely & lathers up a bit so you can really massage it into your hair for an even application. Then I piled my hair on top of my head, popped a plastic cap on top & blasted the cap with my hairdryer for five minutes. Bleached hair can be very dry & porous so development time will vary depending on the condition of your hair. Bblonde recommend leaving it on anywhere between 10-30 minutes. I didn't bother to do a strand test & just went for the middle ground of twenty minutes.

The toner helps to condition the hair so you don't need to apply any extra conditioner afterwards. I rinsed my hair until the water ran clear & styled it as usual. Although the colour doesn't quite match up with the picture on the box, I still think it looks fab! The overall tone is much ashier than it was & I love the fresh silvery shade. I normally use a purple shampoo to keep my tone looking icy but they can be very drying & I have to use them every time I wash or those yellow tones start to creep in again. What I like about this toner is that it feels very conditioning & the results last much longer. It should last about eight washes before you need to top up your colour. Obviously bleaching your hair is very damaging so using a toner like this without ammonia or peroxide will make your hair look a lot healthier. The price can't be beaten either. This BBlonde toner costs less than a fiver & it's totally transformed the colour of my hair. Whether you have a full head of bleach like me or just a few highlights, this stuff can take you from brassy blonde to silver goddess in half an hour. Grey hair is so on trend right now & the Jerome Russell Bblonde silver toner is such a brilliant way to get the look at home.

  1. I always have a mare when my regular hairdresser doesn't do my hair, so I can relate to you there. This colour looks lovely on you! I've always been really nervous about colouring my hair myself, but your description of the process doesn't sound terrifying at all! Now I'm tempted...
