Swedish brand Maria Nila, launched in the UK earlier this year. They have an interesting 'Colour Refresh' range which is suitable for both natural and coloured hair, so I eager to try one out.
I haven't dyed my hair with any properly permanent colour for a long time, as my hair gets very easily damaged. Instead I prefer to use semi-permanent dyes for a bit of a colour boost every now and again. When I was introduced to Maria Nila's Colour Refresh range I knew they would be perfect for me.
What is it?
Colour Refresh is basically like a deep conditioning hair masque combined with non-permanent colour pigments which are blended into the formula. You can use it to give natural, dull looking or coloured hair some extra vibrancy. It's made with 100% vegan friendly ingredients, and is also Sulphate and Parabens free.
How to use?
The formula comes out quite thick like a traditional hair masque and is coloured to whichever one you've picked up. You just apply it to freshly washed and towel dried hair, spreading it all over to ensure a good even coverage. Leave it on for 3-10 minutes and then rinse. Tip: as the masque is already coloured, I'd recommend using plastic gloves to avoid staining and make sure to thoroughly rinse your shower or bath area after application.
Results will vary depending on whether your hair is natural or coloured to begin with and what shade it is e.g if you have blonde hair, you can use any of the Colour Refresh shades and see some really vibrant results; whereas colours will be more subtle in darker hair. I used the Cacoa Intense Colour Refresh with my natural dark brown hair and it added much more depth and shine which is what I wanted and I loved the finish it gave. My hair also felt really soft and swish-worthy!
Maria Nila Colour Refresh* is available in 13 different shades, each priced at £16.99 (300ml). You can purchase them from Sally stores nationwide and online at sallyexpress.com
