Bye-bye unwanted grey strands, and welcome back you dark beautiful mane.

Say goodbye to those embarrassing grey strands. An honest review of the John Frieda's Defy Grey Range - Brunette Blending products.

Picture this…..Dark hair, pulled back, glistening in the sun with a rich dark chestnut hue, everyone admiring the thick gorgeous mane as you pass them…. The dream "Good Hair" day, right? Brunettes, we know you will agree with us, there is nothing more frustrating that that solemn one grey strand sticking out from the beautiful shiny dark head of hair. But you no longer need to fret.

We have found the solution, say hello to John Frieda’s Defy Grey range.

You don’t have to worry about the constant aging reminders that, let’s be honest, everyone could quite easily do without!

Having been given the opportunity to put the John Frieda product range to the test, which might I add, we eagerly accepted and reviewed over a period of 2 weeks (and will continue to do so until it’s finished – so stay posted for an update on the post!) we can simply say – We are IN LOVE!

Firstly , the smell of all 3 products, The Defy Grey Shampoo, the Defy Grey Conditioner and the Defy Grey Blow Dry Foam is incredible! Totally transports you to an island in the summer with scents of coconut and pretty much you could assimilate it to a lux fragrance. Totally Devine. The appearance, a silky deep chestnut coloured liquid. It lathers and foams with ease. And best of all, yes it’s a coloured shampoo, but there’s definitely no tell tale signs for example tint stains or coloured hands.

The Blow Dry foam, is a light and foamy mouse that you would use last to lock in the chestnut glow. Same incredible scent, The pump gives you the desired amount which by using your fingers you simply run them through your towel dried hair.

I could state, on day’s where you running late, you can skip the last step, and still have a gorgeous dark mane. From our second wash, we already saw incredible results. The odd grey strand starting to turn a gentle caramel colour and blending in.

It’s a win in our books for sure.
