A Round Up of Fanola No Yellow Shampoo Reviews

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo is a holy grail product in our eyes, as you’ve probably heard us say a million times. We would shout it from the rooftops if we could get away with doing that without seeming a little bit crazy. The Fanola No Yellow Shampoo is perfect for blonde babes who want to eliminate any brass or yellow tones from their hair. The shampoo contains a strong violet pigment which is suitable for bleached, blonde, streaked or grey hair. Unlike other purple shampoos, it doesn’t leave hair feeling dry and straw-like.

But enough of what we think about it, let’s take a look at some big names who love No Yellow just as much as we do. You have heard it from us, now its time to hear it from them!

In conclusion, it is clear that Fanola No Yellow Shampoo is a firm favourite when it comes to the purple shampoo ranks. But we already knew that. However, it may have given you even more confidence to take the leap and finally try the No Yellow Shampoo on your own hair. Now say bye bye to brass, you won’t regret it!

Difference Between Fanola No Orange and No Yellow Shampoos

Difference Between Fanola No Orange and No Yellow Shampoos

Nowadays, dyed hair on both men and women has become a norm. Whether you want a copper-red colour, a chocolate brunette look, or you wish to go blonde, a simple trip to your colourist will fix you right up!

However, changing your natural hair colour is a short-term goal with long-term effects. Catering to your newly dyed hair is crucial to making that salon bill worth it.  If you wish to clear away any impurities, moisturize your hair, and protect the colour, then quality Fanola shampoos are a must-have.

Simply put, the better the shampoo you use, the healthier and longer the colour will last. This is where Fanola’s No Yellow and No Orange shampoo products come into play. With them, you can wash your hair knowing that cleansing won’t compromise your new colour but add to its health and shine.

Unmistakable Difference Between Fanola No Orange and No Yellow Shampoos

We’ve all been there; that dread you feel when you leave the salon with colour that looks grayer than platinum or more orange than caramel. To be brutally honest, dyed hair required more upkeep than we like to admit.

Whether you spend a lot of time in the sun, or you simply love washing your hair way too often, the elements seem to always work against our balayage. However, this is nothing a good purple or blue Fanola shampoo can’t fix.

To understand the fundamental difference between these two products, let’s first take a quick look at the colour wheel. Fanola No Orange Shampoo is blue in colour while Fanola No Yellow is purple in colour.

As you may already know, colours that are on opposite sides of each other on the colour wheel tend to cancel each other out.

Using this analogy, we can deduce that blue shampoo will get rid of red or orange tones while purple will cancel and get rid of yellow or greenish hues.

Who has more fun – Brunettes or Blondes?

For many years, blondes have turned to purple shampoo such as Fanola No Yellow shampoo to keep that pesky brassiness at bay. Now, thanks to blue shampoos such as Fanola No Orange, brunettes and darker blondes can finally join in on the joys of hair dyeing!

No Yellow shampoo is best suited for coloured hair with lighter tones such as white, silver, or platinum shades while No Orange shampoo works best to remove brassiness in darker blondes and brunettes.

Simply put, Fanola No Orange shampoo works for darker hair shades the same way Fanola No Yellow works for lighter hair colours.

So why exactly Fanola No Orange and No Yellow must-have products for colour-treated hair? Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from each of them:

What’s Fanola No Orange Shampoo?

Blondes aren’t the only ones whose hair colour can be affected by the elements. Even darker shaded hair tends to dry out fast if it doesn’t receive some TLC. A quality hydrating and toning shampoo is the key to not only replenish your locks but also to prevent the colour from fading away.

You can now say goodbye to dry and unwanted red, copper, and orange tones thanks to this highly potent toning shampoo. How? Fanola’s No Orange selection contains blue pigments that gently cleanse hair while neutralizing and eliminating any undesired warm red tones that come with the dyeing process.

This toning shampoo can also darken greys by blending them in to make them appear less noticeable.

The formula is sulfate-free, silicone-free, and is armed with botanical oils and coconut extracts that enhance colour-treated hair while cleaning it.

This powerful blue-toned shampoo will enrich and hydrate darker shaded dyed hair for a silkier and softer finish. Its fast-acting ingredients bind warmer colour shades to the hair, thus balancing out pH levels and canceling out the unflattering vibrancy in orange or red tones.

What is Fanola No Yellow Shampoo?

Fanola No Yellow is a purple shampoo explicitly made for blondes – natural or lightened light blonde hair. This toning shampoo comprises of high violet pigments that remove any unwanted yellow tones to create lusher and shinier silver and ash tones in the hair.

This concentrated formula is filled with elastin proteins and amino acids that aid in strengthening and replenishing hair.

You’ll undoubtedly notice the improvement in your lock’s elasticity against breakage after only 2 – 3 uses (thank us later!)

Fanola No Yellow professional-grade shampoo will give your hair vibrancy and shine that will actually last! This cruelty-free and ethically-sourced hair care product will treat your hair, nourish it, and banish brass, leaving it silky with no yellow in sight.

Final Thoughts

If your bleached mane suffers from unnatural looking yellow and orange tones, consider using Fanola No Yellow or Fanola No Orange shampoos! These affordable and easy-to-use hair care products won’t let your dye go down the drain – literally.

*Remember to use gloves during your wash as the shampoo colours might stain your hands!

Fanola No Yellow vs Other Purple Shampoos

Fanola No Yellow Vs Other Purple Shampoos

Every blonde-haired person, be it natural or otherwise, is well familiar with dulling or yellowing hair colours and products. The problem is, discoloration is inevitable – be it from swimming, pollution, heat styling, product build-up, or other extenuating environmental and health circumstances.

It can be a real head tosser when your colour loses its shine and brightness a few days after a salon visit. So, the main question is; how can you keep your hair bright and shiny without having to make regular weekly visits to your hairstylist?

The answer to your query is purple shampoo! Purple shampoo is a toning shampoo made using non-toxic purple ingredients that can brighten up the brass and yellowness of your dull blonde hair.

But with new products being introduced into the market regularly, how can you find the perfect and most pocket-friendly brand out there?

After much research, we have concluded that Fanola No Yellow Shampoo tops all other Purple shampoos and here’s why:

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo – What Is It?

When it comes to your hair, there’s nothing better than a new fresh colour! But once you’re out of the salon, some challenges such as how you’ll be able to maintain that just-left-the-salon level luster until your next appointment will start creeping in!

No need to fret as Fanola’s No Yellow shampoo is a relatively strong purple toner shampoo that is able to neutralize the warm tones in your hair by depositing violet/ purple pigments in an even manner throughout your scalp.

The shampoo cancels out any red, orange, or yellow undertones that tend to appear over time in light-hair colours ensuring that your contour looking light and non-ashy thoughout!

*Simply put; Fanola No Yellow shampoo will keep your new blonde hair-do looking shiny, fresh, and sleek without you having to rush to the nearest salon for a professional touch-up!

Added Benefits Derived From Using Fanola No Yellow Shampoo As Opposed to Other Purple Shampoos

1.      It’s Super Pigmented

If you’ve ever used other Purple shampoos, you’ve probably noticed that they tend to come out in a lighter-shaded and thin layered purple colour. This is not the case here. Fanola’s No Yellow shampoo comes out in a very dense and deep purple colour!

The shampoo works to get rid of any unwanted tones on your new coloured hair-do because the colouring is so strong that it might even stain your white shower curtain! What more would you ask for from a quality purple shampoo?

2.      It’ll Leave Your Hair Moisturized

One of the main reasons we love Fanola No Yellow shampoo is that it’ll leave your hair quite brassy – we haven’t experienced any straw hair problems as opposed to other purple shampoos.

It’s especially a must-have hair shampoo for anyone who bathes, lives near salty water, or spends little time outside.

This product will neutralize any unwanted yellow in the hair without leaving it dry! It’ll leave your hair feeling soft, light, and bouncy after a single-use.

The best part? You won’t need any toners, foils, or other salon products to style and regenerate your hair colour!

3.      It’s Versatile

Are you a brunette with blonde highlights or perhaps you have Ombre hair? Often times, natural hair becomes wiry, and bleached hair becomes brittle. Fanola No Yellow shampoo can keep your highlights in check by targeting only the blondes in your hair!

Unlike other purple shampoos, this quality shampoo caters to a wide range of clients as it works well for varying hair colours, including:

  • Blonde
  • Shay blonde
  • Light brown
  • silver/ white/ grey
  • Platinum blonde
  • Pastel (coloured and bleached hair with cooler shaded pastels.)

NB: This fortifying formula has no effect on darker hair as well – you don’t ever have to worry about its impact on your re-growth or any of your darker hair strands.

4.      It Meshes Well With Other Hair Products

Have you ever tried to use a different branded conditioner on your hair while using other purple hair shampoos? Almost all other purple shampoos tend to leave your hair dry, in knots or severely discoloured. Not Fanola No Yellow shampoo though!

As mentioned earlier, the shampoo distributes a thick and even-coloured gel that works well with all conditioners and leave-in hair treatments. You’ll experience no dullness or hair breakage as you wash, dry, and comb your hair.

5.      It’s Pocket-Friendly and Worth Every Dime!

After you’ve parted with a lot of pounds to have your hair turned blonde in the first place, you aren’t exactly looking to cough out more money for all new products that you need for your weekly rotation, are you now?

Other Purple shampoos can cost tons of cash whereas this effective and high-quality Fanola No Yellow shampoo will only cost you less than 12 pounds. Talk about a long-term investment!

How to Use Fanola No Yellow Shampoo

For best results, apply a generous amount on damp or dry hair, leave for 1 – 3 minutes and then rinse hair with lukewarm water. Remember to use gloves to prevent staining of your hands. Shampoo your hair once a week or when yellow tones become visible.

Final Thoughts

Most Purple shampoos tend to leave your hair very dry and frail, especially when mixed with other brands of conditioner and leave-in treatment. However, Fanola No Yellow shampoo is made using brightening and detangling ingredients that will take all of the brass out and keep your hair colour bright and shiny all season long.

And the best part? It’s affordable, easy-to-use- and very efficient. Have you tried Fanola No Yellow Shampoo before? How did you find it compared to other Purple shampoo products? We’d love to hear from you so do leave your comments below!

HEAT PROTECTION

Turn Up The Heat This Valentine’s Day: Everything You Need To Know About Heat Protectant Products

Heat protectant products can often get overlooked if you don’t know the reasons behind using them. After all, it is hard to believe how much protection a spray or cream can offer your hair when dealing with the highest heat on your hair straighteners. But if you crave the sleek finish, your straighteners achieve. Then you need to get clued up on what heat protectant products do for your locks.

TikTok Heat Protection Experiment

We thought we would dive straight in with the hard facts. You may have already seen on Tiktok, over the past few weeks, hairstylists putting heat protectant on bread. Now, we know this sounds crazy but stay with us. The Tiktok trend involves hairstylists covering one slice of bread with their choice of heat protection and putting it into the toaster. Along with another slice of bread without any heat protection. When the bread comes out of the toaster, you can clearly see that the piece of bread that had the heat protectant product is hardly toasted. Therefore, the bread has been protected from the heat of the toaster. 

Our Fanola artist Claudia put our Styling Tools Thermal Protective Spray to the test on a bagel, and the results speak for themselves!

To show the affects of heat protectant spray

Why Should I Use A Heat Protectant Product?

So, if the Tiktok experiment hasn’t got you convinced it is time for us to change your mind by explaining what happens to your strands when you don’t use a form of heat protection. The heat from your styling tools can wreak havoc upon your locks. Some of the telltale signs of heat damage are split ends, snapped strands and dry hair. When weighing up the positives of using a heat protectant product a way to think about it is that you wouldn’t sit directly in the sun without wearing SPF. Therefore, the same should apply to your hair when exposed to heat.

Factors To Consider When Buying A Heat Protectant Product

Pat yourself on the back if you are still reading, because that means you are considering investing in a heat protection product. Remember, healthy hair is always in.

Like with all hair care products, there is a huge variety of heat protectant products on the market for you to choose from. So we have narrowed down the top 3 things you need to consider when buying one.

  • Make sure that you choose a product that can defend against the temperatures of your favourite styling tools. The temperature the product can defend against should be on the back of the bottle, along with the instructions.
  • Choose a product that suits your lifestyle. If you are always in a rush and on the go, then a spray product would be easier and more convenient than a cream or serum.
  • Many heat protectant products also perform other jobs such as easing frizz, adding shine and nourishing locks. Be sure to select one that benefits your hair in other ways, as well as protecting it from heat damage.

OILY HAIR

The Best Shampoo For Oily Hair

Oily hair is a result of your sebaceous glands producing too much sebum. In normal amounts, sebum is good for your hair. It is essential for a healthy scalp and strands. However, in excessive amounts, it can make your hair look oily and can even cause dandruff. If you suffer from overly oily hair. Then you will already know the struggle of trying to line up your hair wash days with social plans. You may have even started to wash your hair every day to minimise the oil. But now it is time to take back control of your hair with a little help from our oily hair recommendations.

What Causes Oily Hair?

There are many different reasons you may be experiencing greasy hair. Some hair types are simply more susceptible, such as fine hair. If you are guilty of washing your hair every day, then this could also be a reason. Every time you wash your hair, it is cleansed of dirt, styling products and natural oils. Therefore, your sebaceous glands start producing sebum to replace those oils that you have washed away. So, if you are washing your hair every day, there will be a lot of new natural oils distributed through your hair. We would recommend washing your hair no more than three times a week. If you need to combat the grease in-between hair wash days, then opt for a dry shampoo.

Are You Using the Right Hair Products?

It is another thing to consider if you have oily hair, as you may be using the wrong products for your hair type. As we mentioned earlier, fine hair is more prone to grease. Fine hair should also avoid certain types of hair products. For instance, heavy products are not suitable for fine hair and will weigh down your locks. You should stay clear of highly moisturising shampoos and conditioners as they are targeted at dry, damaged hair. Instead, you should look for clarifying, purifying and rebalancing products.

No More The Prep Cleanser Shampoo

This shampoo is a clarifying shampoo that deeply cleanses your hair and washes away any buildup. It is essential for those who suffer from greasy hair as you will experience a buildup of excess oil. The shampoo also cleanses your hair of styling products and dirt. A detox shampoo like this one is important for hair and scalp health. We would recommend using this type of shampoo once a month.

Purity Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

A buildup of excess oil on the scalp can lead to dandruff. To kill the fungal infection that causes dandruff. You need a shampoo that contains piroctone olamine. Not only does the Purity Anti-Dandruff Shampoo contain this ingredient, but it also has sebum control.

Rebalance Anti-Grease Shampoo

The Rebalance Shampoo contains surfactant agents that purify the scalp. It effectively removes any signs of sebum buildup and leaves your hair refreshed, shiny and full of life.

Hormones

Hormones. The gift that keeps on giving. Not only do they influence our emotions, mood and behaviour, but they can even affect how much sebum your sebaceous glands produce. If your hormone levels change then the amount of sebum produced will change too. This is why you can experience oily hair during puberty, pregnancy and, during times of extreme stress.

Touching Your Hair

Many of us are guilty of running our fingers through our hair, and you may not even realise you are doing it. For example, I mess with my hair whenever I’m concentrating or trying to think of something. However, this everyday act could be a culprit when it comes to greasy hair. It is because our hands and fingers carry natural oils and whenever you touch your hair, these oils become attached to your strands. So if you are playing with your hair while reading this, it is your sign to stop.

Diet

Not only does your diet affect the health of your body, but it also affects the health of your hair. Which means some of your favourite indulges could be one of the reasons behind your oily hair. Diets high in carbohydrates and saturated fats can increase oil production. Foods that are rich in Vitamin B can help to control how much sebum your glands produce.

What are your favourite things about being a Fanola Artist?

 My salon is a Fanola product only, salon. It’s amazing, to be able to show and represent as a Fanola artist how much I love and believe in the products. Plus, be able to show how good they are via my work.

Amore Hair Salon

What Fanola products could you not live without in your kit?

 My favourite Fanola product has to be the whole reason I started on the Fanola journey, and that is the famous No Yellow Shampoo. It’s powerful toning literally does what it says, leaves no yellow, and my clients love it too! It keeps my hard blonding work perfect at home. 

 My second is the Nutricare Restructuring Split Ends Cream. It is the bomb for smoothing out those ends and sealing them, whilst blow drying. It is unreal definitely a fave of mine. 

 Colour wise I’m in love with the violet lightener. This lightener is another level with low peroxide (I’m a slow and low kinda girl.) I can achieve outstanding results along with the no yellow toning system.

What’s your favourite Fanola hair creation you have done?

My favourite Fanola creation? That is a hard one. I have so many! But the one I get the most attention, and phone call bookings about either the style or colour, is a short restyle I did on a long-standing client friend. It was quite refreshing as I do so many long creations. It was so much fun! After years of the same routine haircuts variations due to her previous job restrictions. I got asked to be as creative as my heart desired, and I loved the results.

Fanola Formula

Violet Lightener with 20 vol mid-lengths and ends for 20 minutes. Then applied to the roots and left for a further 20 minutes. Toned with T.21 + T.11 10 vol.

What would you say your hair speciality is?

My hair speciality is what I’m known for, blonding and balayage techniques, without a doubt! Also, precision cutting scissors are an extension of my hand. I have been called Edward scissor hands before!

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Creative, honest and caring.

If you weren’t a hairdresser, what do you think you would be doing instead?

If I weren’t a hairdresser, believe it or not, my second choice was a mechanic! Yes, I was a girl racer in my younger years, a confession made ha!

What do you love the most about owning your salons?

What I love most about owning my salons is I set out to create a different salon environment for both clients and staff. A more relaxed, non-commercial, professional way within a salon. So clients feel they get a more personal experience. I take great pride in ensuring all staff are treated equally and fairly, even the self-employed get holiday pay. I wanted a salon that I was happy working in and a happy working environment for everyone.

That is what I love the most about owning my own salons. If everyone else is happy, I’m happy, which means I get to be as creative as I want with no boundaries. After all, I can do whatever I like. No one can tell me I can’t do it, because it’s my place to be the most creative stylist I can be!

We know you are spending time with your fur baby while in lockdown, how else are you keeping busy?

Hairdressing is a very social and creative environment, with so many rewards, and I miss it immensely. But spending quality time with my fur baby is the best. I am not going to lie, he has had a hard, year health-wise, so I feel lucky to get this time with him by my side.

Lockdown is spent, going through all my social media, catching up on posting my creations, I never get time to do. Also, working on the new website and plenty of other admin that comes with running two salons. I keep in touch with my employees, of course, checking that they are safe and well. I am also constantly learning and educating myself with new ideas that I can bring to the salon and keeping up to date with trends.

Oh, and I have five, yes, five children! Between me and my partner, homeschooling you could say I am kept busy ha!

What celebrity’s hair are you loving at the minute?

I don’t have a favourite celebrity’s hair. But I am loving all the celebs that are rocking the newly reinvented bang! It is making a huge comeback this year for 2021. Especially the lobs incorporating bangs with a cheeky few baby lights framing the faces too.

What TV shows are you currently binge-watching?

The last series I binged watched and couldn’t stop, all day every day, was in the last lockdown. I know it’s old, but I wanted to wait until the series was complete. Orange Is the New Black, eight series, back to back, that stuff was good! I had to rewatch the last episode to clarify it was the end to myself!

Tiny Pretty Things

Tiny Pretty Things is a Netflix original adapted from the book Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton. It follows the lives of a group of competitive ballet dancers who attend an elite Chicago Ballet School. The school and its students face scrutiny after star pupil Cassie Shore falls from the roof of the school’s building and ends up in a coma. The storyline incorporates the investigation into Cassie’s fall as well as exploring topics such as eating disorders, drug abuse and racism. If you loved Pretty Little Liars, you will be sure to love this!

Headspace A Guide To Meditation

Bridgerton

If you have a Tiktok account, you have probably already heard of the new Netflix show Bridgerton. Bridgerton dropped onto Netflix on Christmas day. So, if you didn’t binge-watch it already over Christmas, now is the time to do so. It is another Netflix series that is based on fiction and is adapted from the romance novels of Julia Quinn. Bridgeton is set in the Regency era. However, there are still nods to modern-day in the series. As seen in the first episode, Daphne Bridgerton attends a ball where the orchestra plays Arianna Grande’s song Thank u, Next. Daphne Bridgerton is one of the main characters in the show as it follows her journey to find a husband. It is hard not to talk about Bridgerton without mentioning the Duke of Hastings. Prepare to meet your new TV crush. 

Wild Child

This coming of age rom-com follows ‘wild child’ Poppy Moore as her father ships her off to an English boarding school. The strict school is a far cry from her pampered life in Malibu. So Poppy decides to do everything she can to be dismissed and be able to return home. However, what Poppy did not expect is that she would find friendship and love during her time there. This chick flick is an oldie but a goodie and is perfect for when you want to switch off from the world.

Unsolved Mysteries

If you are a fan of true crime documentaries and things that go bump in the night, this is the series for you. This investigative series has two volumes on Netflix that look at unexplained disappearances, suspicious deaths and even alien encounters. Each episode looks into a new unsolved mystery and includes interviews with family, friends, and police officers. As well as interviews the series uses re-enactments. So you can get an insight into the events that took place.

Excuse me, I love you

If it involves QUEEN Ariana Grande, then it is a must-watch! If you weren’t lucky enough to see the Sweetener Tour live, like us, then prepare to be wowed. This concert movie features footage shot on the last day of Ariana’s European world tour at London’s O2 Arena. The film is filled with jaw-dropping vocals, flawless dance routines and incredible costumes. It also gives you an insight into what goes on backstage and during rehearsals. Let’s just say our love for Ariana has grown even more! If that is even possible.
