I absolutely love having dark hair in the winter. There’s just something about having a freshly colored all-over chocolate color that just makes me feel so renewed and put-together! If you other brunettes can relate then you’re gonna love this! John Frieda’s Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ line has made deeper brunette color with that freshly-colored-feeling possible on the daily!
Two weeks ago I colored my hair at home with professional products to match my 18″ dark brown hair extensions. When I’ve used normal shampoo/conditioner, my color usually lasted about 2 months, fading around my face and the top of my head within a few weeks. Now let’s be real: healthy dyes and hair appointments are expensive so salon re-coloring as frequently as I wish is impractical and impossible, at least for my budget. So naturally when my sister told me about her awesome experience with Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Colour Deepening Shampoo/Conditioner and companion product Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™Colour Deepening Treatment that gradually deepen brunette colour in the shower, (AND they are at Target) um, complete no-brainer! (Plus I love a good excuse for a Target run!)
I popped on over to Target and at first had difficulty finding them so I’ll help you out. At the American Fork Target John Frieda has a shelf for all of their Colour Care products on the endcap of the first aisle of the Health and Beauty section. (Most Targets will have their John Frieda Colour Care products located on this endcap through 3/5/16.)See it now?Oh, AND, because I’m all for saving money, get all 3 products (the shampoo, the conditioner, and the treatment) and get a $5 Target gift card (plus you have 3 awesome products for pretty hair!)You know when you make an awesoe choice for yourself and then are surprised not only by long-term rewards but an immediate short term one as well…When I checked out, not only did I get the $5 Target gift card, but upon ringing up my products the register automatically printed a $2 coupon to use on this purchase!
So in other words, score!
Anyway, a little more about is awesome line! These NEW Brilliant Brunette Deepening products are safe to use on both natural hair or color-treated hair (like mine) or for use on highlights or lowlights too!
Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Colour Deepening Shampoo/Conditioner:
The shampoo / conditioner are formulated with cocoa (which trust me, smells AMAZING!) and evening primrose oil. (Seriously, crack open the lid and take a whiff while you’re still at Target and you’ll be sold for life!) Just use them as your normal shampoo and conditioner. While you wash your hair they infuse colour for a deeper shade that gradually deepens your brunette colour. This is a perfect solution for color maintenance (my objective.)
Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™Colour Deepening Treatment (the one in the box):
If you need a more drastic color adjustment the companion colour deepening treatment product infuses hair with a boost of colour to instantly deepen and darken brunette tones up to 1 shade! I bought this too so that I have it on hand for when my hair needs a more serious refresh. (For those days where I realize my hair has faded and I can’t think about anything else until I fix it! Now I can breathe easy!) Just put it on your hair and leave it on for 5 minutes (perfect amount of time to shave your legs anyway!) and then wash it out like normal. I love that this doesn’t interrupt even a normal shower schedule but it will make all the difference in achieving a deeper color!

Now my hair is a constant beautiful, shiny, soft, rich, chocolate , deeper brunette color that smells positively heavenly. (But seriously, I can’t stop touching it!)

P.S. Funny Sidenote: I’ve had an admiration for the Brilliant Brunette brand ever since I first saw commercials for it and then putting “Brilliant Brunette” as my messenger screen name back in Jr. High! *high five* That might be one of the first times anyone watching could have realized that without-a-doubt I would end up working in branding, which I now do!
