Before the craziness of the holidays began, I attended the Garnier Herbashine event, the newest addition to Garnier’s haircare line that launches this month, and is a color creme with bamboo extracts available in 18 shades for $7.99 at most major drugstores.The new haircolor range comes with a fragrant aroma of top notes including apple, raspberry, black currant, and peach (weird to talk about hair dye in such a way, but I like it!), and includes bamboo extracts, av0cado, and shea butter to help fortify the hair cuticle during the coloring process.
Not only is the color also ammonia free, but it is also low commitment; it takes only 10 minutes to apply and lasts through 28 washes, making it a new hybrid category. It’s not a semi- nor a demi-permanent hair color, hence Garnier has dubbed it a soft-lift, since it handles greys, lifts hair color up a level, and no visible root line. So what does this mean to you? Essentially, don’t pick a color too far outside of your current/natural color range for its effects to truly take hold. Now isn’t the time to go from blonde to black, however if you want to lighten, darken, add lustre, or fortify your current shade a bit, Herbashine wil do the job. I’m going to use ‘800’ and become a darker, winter blonde – you’ll be sure to see the results soon!
