Love is in the hair! I've recently heard about Madison Reed all over the radio and couldn't wait to get my hands on one of their hair color kits.
They've partnered with honest and transparent manufacturers in Italy (operating under strict EU regulations) to create a high-performance quality collection of hair color products! Not only that, Madison Reed has created the first-ever "Smart 6 Free" permanent hair color: Free of ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, and gluten. They've added hair-loving nutrients like keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root extract to protect and pamper hair. Mine felt INCREDIBLE after and that's just crazy after highlighting.
They have so many beautiful options for permanent hair color it was hard to choose which to go with. I decided for summer to enhance my already lighter hair and try their Light Works balayage highlighting kit! I have never been able to successfully go lighter with an at-home hair color system so I was SHOCKED with the results I achieved.
Light Works is for those that love soft highlights that appear subtly grown-out, sun-kissed and natural-looking. The easy 2-step salon process first lightens, then tones to refine the color. My hair always likes to pull brassy tones so the toner was crucial to my blondie hair success!
The directions were clear and super easy to follow. The whole process took me about two hours but it flew by because I could do whatever I pleased during the processing time! I am one to get a little anxious at salons so this was an amazing option for me. Not to mention I saved $100+ bucks!
If you're a little nervous to DIY your own balayage have no fear. Madison Reed offers incredible customer service and has expert colorists to answer all your questions! Their website is full of how to videos and the kit is very straightforward. The wishbone tool they sent with my kit made the highlight process super easy!
The clean up was so easy, there was no chemical smell, and it felt SO soft + shiny after. Hello, and welcome to the good hair life! I am already excited to try more of their amazing colors and products- okay lets see the final result already!
If you're interested but afraid of color at first, try the amazing gloss products or just start with your current hair color. After using it just once, you'll be hooked... just like me!
I am so happy with my results from Madison Reed they feel subtle and sun-kissed!
Summer, I am ready for ya! 10/10 from me.
