        Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo:

        Like most posts here, I'm a natural blonde whose hair has grown darker with age. Nevertheless, I have always gotten comments from people that I have beautiful natural highlights and to never dye my hair. At the age of 26 I have still never dyed the hair but have found that smothering my hair in lemon juice at the beach just isn't enough to keep it looking as bright as it used to be. I started using this product and fell in love with it! My hair was back to being as beautiful blonde as it was when I was younger. However, I did notice my natural highlights were slowly starting to disappear and my hair was just turning into one shade of blonde. This might be fine for some, it's still a great color, but my natural highlights seem to have started to vanish. I now only use the product probably about once a month just to get that boost of lightening and whenever I feel like my roots are starting to look darker (which everyone says is all in my head). I have not noticed any thinning or breaking like other comments have reported. I have thick hair before and after this product. One thing I can recommend for those with that issue is to use 'main N' tail' shampoo & conditioner. It's made by Straight Arrow and comes in large bottles. Yes there is a horse on the front, yes you can use it on animals but I have recommended this to all my friends and they absolutely love it. It really makes your hair super thick and grow like a weed. Hope this helped!!

              John Frieda products have never done me wrong yet, and I've bought this product (and the accompanying conditioner and lightening spray) multiple times. It works well, is a great value, and leads to lots of compliments. Five stars, definitely.

                I love this line, I use it 2x a week or so, but I only shampoo my hair 3x a week. It lightens, I have highlighted hair which it brightens significantly. However, knowing you have a lightening effect...you have to feel condition DAILY or it will dry out. At least every time you wash. I do an oil treatment of coconut oil pre cleanse, shampoo and conditioner with this then follow with a good deep conditioner. I love Terax Crema. It's a holy grail for blondes and available online this site.

                  I used John Frieda for blondes in the past and switched. This is much better than I remembered and am glad I gave it another try..

                      Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo:

                      I have been a long time user of John Frieda products yet after recent events, I will certainly not be any longer. Around the beginning of April this year, I started using Go Blonder Lighting Shampoo and Conditioner as I have in past years to prepare for the light color I so desire for the summer. Starting off it worked fine as always lighting up my highlighted hair. Yet after 2 weeks of use, every other day to be noted, my hair started to turn yellow. I had not noticed until friends and family asked if I intentionally dyed my hair, yellow. I stopped using the products immediately thinking the color would start to fade, and let it not be mistaken it was not brassiness due to water. I used city water of Chicago and purple dyed shampoo to try to reverse the effects. Nothing was effective. I then went to my salon to get highlights to try to correct the yellow and toner as well. I was not successful in removing the color. After a Malibu treatment, more toner and bottles after bottles of purple salon shampoo, somewhere over $300 spent overall, my hair is still yellow. My hair stylist and the salon are baffled as well as I am about what seemed to be a reputable brand has succeeded in damaging and discoloring my once light blonde hair. I am never one to complain about products yet I never had a terrible experience quite like this. Let it be known I will never by any John Frieda products again and have let everyone I know of what has happened. My salon is also warning their clients not to use any of your products as well. I only hope this color can fade and eventually grow out and this will not happen to anyone else.

                        Product did exactly what it's supposed to do. I used it for a solid week and notice about a shade difference on my medium brown-auburn colored hair. Stop using because it did feel a bit drying on my curly, naturally dry hair. Am going to use it again in about a week or two. Would recommend it anyone who wants to go a little lighter without incurring too much damage. Haven't tried the conditioner but am interested in doing so.

                          do not buy this product! After using this shampoo and conditioner set for a few weeks, the ends of my hair are really damaged and dry. I recently got a haircut so the damage is from this shampoo. I have brown hair with blonde-ish highlights and the shampoo did nothing to my hair. WASTE OF MONEY.
