I have been dyeing my hair since I was sixteen, naturally blonde and bored, I’ve been almost every color in the spectrum. Currently I’ve got a pretty decent dark cherry/brown/black/violet thing happening and I love it. However, I do NOT love the upkeep, when you decide to go red you need to really think about some things. Are you ready for your tub to look like a murder scene every time you shower? Are your ready to dye more often since red fades with the quickness? I was ready for all of those things but of course I am always on a mission to find something that will help prevent color fading, especially this color. I’ve tried a lot and the Nexxus Color Assure system has officially blown my mind.
The NEW Nexxus Color Assure System is the first oil-infused color care system by Nexxus, and it provides 2X longer color protection after your dye job whether that be at the salon or if you’re an adventure junkie like me and just enjoy trying new stuff at home! This line as a whole is pretty spectacular.
The shampoo and conditioner in the Nexxus Color Assure line are simply super cute in their sleek pink bottles. If I saw this on a shelf I would be so drawn to it since I am a packaging sucker! They work as you would expect cleans nicely, moisturizes great and they work together to help protect your color and prevent fading.
I love, love, love this weightless oil. Just a little spritz of the Nexxus Color Assure Glossing Tonic and your hair will keep it’s shine for days. I am obsessed with this. It doesn’t leave your hair greasy at all and boost your shine to the nth power.
The NEW Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer is a pre-treatment to shield hair in the shower. It helps to repel water, so color stays longer and more vibrant. The Pre-Wash Primer is sulfate-free and infused with a blend of clear oils, including almond, coconut and argan oil. This was by far my favorite. I literally had very low expectations going into this since I had tried a lot before and when I put this on before washing, I was sure I would see results. Funny thing is? I had NO murder scene in the tub. This stuff rocks.
It’s super easy to use before you shower, apply 5-7 pumps to dry hair, starting at the ends and working up to the root. Only apply enough so that hair is soft and silky, but not saturated. If your hands are greasy after applying the Primer, then you have applied too much. I have very short hair in an inverted bob so about 2.5 pumps was enough for me!
For best results, follow the Pre-Wash Primer with Nexxus Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo and Conditioner and finish with Nexxus Color Assure Glossing Tonic. I used all of these products each time I washed my hair for over a month and I was thrilled with the results, I usually start to see fade about two weeks post color.
A month post coloring and I can honestly say for the most part (minus *new growth*) my hair color looks exactly the same as the day I colored it. The Nexxus Color Assure line has absolutely blown my mind. Nothing compares, in my opinion.
Look for the Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer, Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo, Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Conditioner and Color Assure Glossing Tonic in mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. What do you think? Do you color your hair, will you be trying Nexxus Color Assure?
