Yeah, don't bother with that stuff.

I'm naturally white blonde, and I went to Hawaii for two weeks and mixed lemon juice and chilled chamomile tea up and lay in the sun for a few hours a day and it got significantly lighter, even though my hair was basically already as light as it comes.

But if you have to use a shampoo, Lush's Marilyn is essentially made of just that and smells yummy.

I was born tow-head blonde, got slowly darker to a dirty blond (think Natalia V. when she first started out) then decided to go dark brown 2 years ago. Well, I'm finally (and gradually) going to return to the wonderful world of blond. The girl who is the new YSL model is my inspiration.

Whaddya think?

Does anyone use shampoo for blondes? I just wondered if it actually makes any difference to overall tones? I have long blonde hair that sometimes feels quite dry - I use a home colour, but my hairdresser always says it is in good condition for the length of it and the colour.

Im currently using Aveda Rosemary and Mint shampoo and conditioner but I sometimes find my hair is not shiny enough! Any suggestions?

I used a shampoo for blondes a few weeks and I'm not happy with it. The only effect is that my hair is dry and feels sick.
It's the same with, I want my hair to be more shiny!

i've been blonde since februar now where i did prelight my hair for it was very dark and anything. so it's pretty okay now, just some strands are in a light brown and not blonde and the hairdresser i went to meant she can't put color all over my hair because of these strands and she did highlights. okay looks great but normaly i dye my hair myself and i don't want to go to the hairdresser every so often to get highlights....do you have any recommendations for me? can i just dye over the highlights in some weeks, sure the color won't be all the same than and lighter there where the highlights are now, that'd be okay for me......but i dunno what to do, the dark strands are mainly at the ends of my hair so they will grow out, no prob with that.....

ooo yeah that hair is nice and luxourious looking. My story is similar to others on here. Blonde as a kid then hair went naturally darker. When i was around 14 I decided to dye my hair blonde myself: big mistake, it turned out orange. Then last year I dyed it dark brown, almost black, and it actually looked really nice. I liked being dark because my dark blue eyes stood out much more and i felt more exotic looking! Alas, i got sick and tired of the smell of the dye, always having to scrub my face and neck because no matter how careful i was i always ended up with dark stains on me afterwards, having to darken my eyebrows and also the vibrancy of the colour faded so quickly to a dull brown. At the mo my hair is a crappy brown colour with my lighter roots showing. I'm going to go back to blonde and get it done by a professional! I think i'll go for full head highlights, ideally a cool light blonde rather than warmer tones. Can't wait for the trip to the salon

My hair is naturally a light ash blonde (but currently a pearly-white colour), I have fair skin that goes very dark in summer, and blue eyes. I used to dye my hair black but I love my blonde too much to even consider going any darker than a level 8 and even that's a scary thought! My hair is also really fine and is a pain in the bum to look after for that reason. I like using a blonde shampoo every other wash to bring out highlights/tone any golden bits, and a moisturising shampoo other times. As for conditioners, Redken All Soft range is ok, but I really like MooGoo conditioner (I think you can only get it here in Australia though).
