    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.

                  Have used this for a month now. No lightening effect, just dried my hair out. Bummer of a product.

                    Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo:

                    HairGuru nailed it- at first I like that it made my hide like to stick out a little bit more even if it did make a little bit more golden. Then overtime I noticed that my hair started to need extra conditioner on top of the conditioner that goes with this product. Then I noticed I needed Shine serum to tame the frizzies. So needless to say over time, my hair where it is been highlighted is much more golden and my overall effectiveness later, but that's because it's so damaged and dry it's not reflective and shiny as it once was.

                    I used this product every day for two weeks straight and noticed my hair has been breaking a lot and has been drastically much more frizzy than it ever was. I regret using this product as now I have to try to repair my hair and get it healthy like it was before this shampoo and conditioner system. I recommend using a purple shampoo. The best one I have used is by AG and it does wonders on making my blonde hair brighter and less brassy! I don't recommend trying this product at all. The only pro was it smells nice.

                        Great product, fits description & makes all of your hair lighter, even the brown parts in my hair. However, you do have to use it every day if you want your hair to get lighter. Don't know why, you just do, which is somewhat inconvenient :/
