Isn’t it the most frustrating thing ever when your fresh hair colour fades out of existence? For me, my non brassy blonde generally will last around one week before the colour would start to dull. Cue the massive exodus of dry shampoo (as its white) and purple toners to try and desperately revive my former colour.
This dullness is caused by external environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollutant damage. Taking this into consideration, I knew on my recent trip to Croatia that my hair was going to suffer. Lots of sun, lots of drying chlorine.
A couple of weeks prior to flying out to Croatia I was at LFW at the Aadnevik show; on the back of this the PR’s had sent me some Moroccanoil hair products to try. These were used throughout the show, and I know the products are used in salons.
This is where the Colour Complete Protect & Prevent spray comes in. It is designed to shield against environmental aggressors, this prevents oxidation and it also protects against thermal damage. The spray uses ArganID micro-encapsulated technology to repair and seal hair cuticles to lock in colour. It’s almost like this spray was designed for me to take on holiday!
How did it perform?
Across the entire range of Moroccanoil products I have been testing there is a real salon, professional feel. They all smell magnificent, and leave your hair feeling not only soft – but healthy.
The Colour Complete spray really did help to maintain my hair colour. And I knew it would be a challenge, years of peroxide has altered my hair to become very porous; and colour fade is something I have learnt to accept over the years. However armed with this spray, I managed to minimise damage and enhance my colour. I love the fact you just spray it through your hair, as you would with any heat protection spray.

I’d highly recommend this to anyone. It’s not just for those with coloured hair, external damage occurs mainly from environmental factors. Living in London with a huge amount of pollution affects not only our health, but our skin and hair too. I think it’s important to raise awareness of products that protect against this damage. Just because you can’t physically see the damage, doesn’t mean it isn’t occurring all the time!
