Frequently Asked Questions about Products

Sheer Blonde® Hair Care

Are any products from the Sheer Blonde® range colour depositing?
Yes, Sheer Blonde® Colour Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner are colour depositing. They deposit a light violet tint to help neutralise brassiness and keep blonde tones light, bright and shining.
If I have brunette hair with blonde highlights, will Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating products lighten my brunette shade?
No, none of the Sheer Blonde® products will change the colour of your brunette hair. The Highlight Activating Shampoos and Conditioners do not deposit or add any colour and instead, work to rid hair of dulling residue that can make hair look dark and dull. As a result, your hair will be restored to its intended shade, allowing the natural clarity of your colour to shine through.
If I have colour-treated, frizzy hair, should I use products from the Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® or Radiant Red lines, or from the Frizz Ease line?

Choosing the appropriate product range to fit your hair-care needs will depend on what your needs are. If you have frizzy, colour-treated hair and your primary goal is to preserve your colour and increase shine, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner from either the Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® or Radiant Red range. However, if your primary need deals with eliminating your frizz, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner from the Smooth Start® range.

Also note that products from John Frieda® Hair Care can be combined to create a regimen that is customized to your specific hair-care needs. If your hair is colour-treated and frizzy, you may wish to shampoo and condition with the Sheer Blonde® or Brilliant Brunette® shampoos and conditioners in order to rehydrate and revitalize damaged, dry hair. To specifically target frizz, use the Frizz Ease® Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula on wet or dry hair as it not only helps prevent frizz, but also protects against heat-styling & UV exposure.

Are Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® and Radiant Red products only for those who colour their hair?
No. The professionals behind John Frieda® Hair Care recognise that blondes, brunettes and redheads, whether natural or colour-treated, have different care and texture needs. John Frieda® Hair Care identifies the different hair colour needs and addresses the unique ways in which each hair shade transforms light into a powerful colour and shine maximizing tool.
Can I use this on my grey hair?
Absolutely. Sheer Blonde® products work perfectly to bring out the natural beauty of grey or greying hair. The same way as it works with blonde hair, our formulas with Light Enhancers™ refresh and perfect the hair’s tone to play up your purest, brightest grey. Like blonde hair, grey hair is transparent by nature which means that buildup will immediately show, making the hair look brassy or dull. The Sheer Blonde® range removes the buildup that comes from the calcium and phosphorus in our water, so that your naturally transparent hair glistens and shines. It is recommended that if you have grey hair, you use the Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner for Lighter Shades. The moisturising agents in these products help to diminish the effects of ageing by replenishing dry hair with extra moisture, and work to restore dazzling highlights.
What products can I use to give my hair more body?
For over-processed, lifeless hair, it is recommended that you start with Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner. This works by restoring hair’s softness and moisture often lost during the colouring process.
I have brown hair with blonde highlights. Should I use Brilliant Brunette® or Sheer Blonde® products?
It is recommended if you have highlights that you use the John Frieda® Hair Care colour shade that best matches your desired benefit. If you are looking to brighten your highlights, you should use the Sheer Blonde® product line. This will rid hair of the dulling deposits that can darken blonde, leaving highlights soft and glistening. However, if you are looking to enhance hair’s shine and luminosity, it is recommended that you use the Brilliant Brunette® product line. This will illuminate hair’s rich multi-dimensional tones, resulting in exquisite, dazzling shine. If desired, you can use both products interchangeably to receive both sets of benefits.
How do I know which shade variant is right for my hair?
It is recommended that, if you have very light platinum blonde hair with cool undertones, you use the Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating products for Lighter Shades. If you have darker blonde hair with warm undertones, you should use the Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating products for Darker Shades.
My blonde hair gets brassy shortly after colouring my hair. Is there anyway to correct this so my hair stays salon bright without the brassiness?
Among blondes, brassiness is a major hair issue. You can easily correct this by using Sheer Blonde® Colour Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner. With optical brighteners and lavender this tone-restoring shampoo and conditioner neutralises brassiness and yellow tones for noticeably brighter blonde hair. This shampoo and conditioner is excellent for both colour-treated and highlighted blonde hair. Most users see a difference in just 3 uses.
How can I lighten my blonde colour so that it is lighter and brighter without going to the salon?
You can use Sheer Blonde® Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo and Conditioner to gradually lighten your hair for an all-over sun-kissed look. Both the shampoo and conditioner are formulated with citrus and chamomile, and are ammonia and peroxide free so it’s gentle enough for daily use.
