Q: Does this product work on natural never dyed before hair?

submitted by screenname - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes, but it depends on what your natural hair color is. Mine is in the dark blonde/light brown range and it worked very well on my hair. If your hair is darker than light brown, though you'll probably be disappointed.

    submitted byrosegolddust - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes, and I use and love all John Frieda products.

    submitted byMsMCT - 6 years ago

Q: Would be ok for redheads/Strawberry blondes?

submitted by Mum23 - 7 months ago
  • A: Generally, the Go Blonder Shampoo is not intended for redheads, as it isn't designed to remove the red melanin found in that hair type. We suggest you try the John Frieda Radiant Red collection.

Q: Does this turn natural white and grey hair blonde?

submitted by Jean - 3 years ago
  • A: When used with our Go Blonder Lightening Conditioner, this hair lightening shampoo gradually deposits yellow tones into blonde hair for blonder-looking hues. However, this product is intended to lighten blonde strands and will not tone white or gray hair into blonde.

First of all, none of the reviews before mine are for the current version of the product. The shampoo has been "reformulated" and it's terrible. If i had wanted to wash my hair with a grapefruit, I would have. Can't wait until the bees come out this spring. New formula is greasy, and makes my hair have a grey/dull tone to it. Nothing like the previous version!! Bring the previous formula back!!!

This shampoo worked so well on my daughter’s hair. She has a naturally golden dark blonde hair color and it lightened her hair subtly with just one use! Her hair smells so fragrant and was left very soft too! Also, her hair has not been processed with dye so her result is based on virgin unprocessed hair.

I've been using this brand of shampoo for years to refresh my color/ highlights throughout the year without having to get a lot of touchups at the hair salon. This shampoo does an amazing job at refreshing the color and keeping it looking bright and new. The shampoo cleanses gently without stripping and leaves my hair smelling great.

I used the shampoo and conditioner for a few months and my hair color did not change at all. I have natural darker blonde hair which has never been colored. This damaged my hair, making it very dry and prone to breakage. I was very disappointed with the results and sad that my previously healthy hair is now damaged with no lightening.

So I use a bottle or two of this shampoo each summer and go back to regular shampoo in the winter. The pictures is the lens of my hair is lighter then the roots now because this picture was taken in December. So it works to lighter but nothing dramatic, like a dark caramel. I’m not an expert in hair so idk how damaging it is tbh. It should be ok if u don’t use it consistent for like 6 year or something

I bought this and the conditioner but was a bit skeptical. I have naturally dirty blonde/light brown hair and usually get highlights. My last salon experience was awful and left me with reddish blonde roots. I gave this a shot in combo with the conditioner and already noticed a difference after the first use. It also did not make my hair brassy which was a relief. The shampoo smelled good and lathered quite well. The conditioner smelled a bit like play doh but was perfectly fine. I don’t feel like this product was as damaging to my hair as others. It still felt soft and was easy to brush out and dry. I do wish the bottles were bigger for the price.

I have all natural dark ashy blonde hair. After 1 use of the shampoo, conditioner and spray my hair is noticeably lighter. I followed the video above, washed, conditioned and sprayed, gave my self a blow out with medium heat and then followed up with a flat iron. Super happy with results and wasn't expecting that after 1 use. My hair is healthy and happy. I'm a professional licensed stylist and will recommend!!

I was having trouble finding any of the blonde lightning shampoos so I bought the purple shampoo. My strawberry blonde, with lots of natural highlights, lost all shine becoming very dull. I finally ordered the highlighting products I previously used but noticed so many similar but slightly different options. Now I wonder which products are recommended for strawberry blonde hair.

Incredibly drying. Ruined my hair that was finally growing out nicely (without tears). Not worth the damage it causes on my already prone to dryness winter hair.
