Review: Matrix Total Results So Silver and Brass Off Shampoos

It’s no secret that I change my hair colour about as often as I change my mind, which is to say… a lot. I’ve gone from brunette to ombre blonde, back to brunette, to brunette with purple, to bright purple and finally to blonde in the last couple of years alone. The blonde has been the look which I’ve loved more than any other (apart from maybe the purple), so I’m eager to maintain it. Because my hairdresser (Cara from Daly Salon if you were wondering) just gets me, my blonde is a bit of a balayage style because I’m a lazy, lazy individual who would be very unlikely to bother getting her roots redone as often as they would need to be if I went fully blonde. Consequently, I have quite a few different tones of blonde through my hair and the darkness varies depending at what length on my hair it is. I was thus pretty intrigued to hear about Matrix’s new Brass Off shampoo which is designed to remove the brassy tones that come along with being blonde, especially if you’re naturally brunette.

I had a chat with the amazingly lovely and helpful Josephine from L’Oreal Australia (who are the parent company of Matrix along with a whole host of pretty awesome brands) via email to figure out if Brass Off would be right for me.

Blogging is brand new to me, and at the time of attending the event I was operating solely out of instagram with the intent to learn from the best and set up a “real” blog later this year. Little did I know that by meeting all the inspirational and lovely bloggers and brands around in Adelaide, I’d end up deciding to start a heck of a lot earlier than I’d intended.

If you’re a blogger in Australia and not already part of the Bloggers United AU community, I highly recommend you get on board. It’s a really supportive place, run by Jasmine and Nikita, who are both wonderful humans (actually, on that note, Nikita is currently raising money for the Whitelion charity and you should definitely go donate).
