John Frieda Everlasting Blonde Colour Preserving Duo

Now as you all know (or if you don't you will now) I am a huge Lee Stafford fan when it comes to my hair and taking care of it and have been now for the past year or so.
 But now and again I think to myself that stepping out of my little comfort zone and trying different brands is a good idea and I should really expand my collection of hair products (even though I don't even have enough space for them all as it is... it's a girl thing right?)
So when I was contacted recently about trying out some NEW products from John Frieda my hair and I jumped at the chance!
I'm going to be honest since watching a video from Fleur De Force a few years ago about a certain John Frieda range and the effect it had on her hair I have been a little reluctant to use their products. BUT saying this my mum had been using the same products for years and years and swears by them, so I suppose it is just personal opinion/experience. 

After reading the description for this certain shampoo and conditioner though - I was sold! 
These are the Everlasting Blonde, Colour Preserving, shampoo and conditioner and I have been using them for the past 3 weeks or so.
I have probably been using them only around twice a week even though it says to use every wash but I have to say I am highly impressed with the results.
These products are made to help maintain a bright blonde colour and are recommended for all shades of colour treated blonde hair.
I have my hair coloured every few months with a full head of highlights and I always try my best to keep the colour the same as it is the day I leave my hairdressers chair!
Sometimes my hair tends to fade and the blonde may become slightly duller/darker and just doesn't look like that vibrate light blonde I started with, so in the past I have used a number of different products. 
I've mentioned before the bleach blondes range from Lee Stafford which act like the "touch of silver" shampoos and conditioners that take out of the brassy or yellowy tones from your hair and are a purple coloured product.
 I was surprised to see that these products weren't also purple but I was actually kind of pleased as I find they dry my hair out alot. (FYI I have cut down using the bleach blonde range alot and only use them around twice a month now).
This month aswell I started wearing extensions again so keeping my hair the same colour is something I am desperate to keep up - extensions that don't blend are my worst nightmare. (I use Lush hair extensions in shade #60 'Lightest Blonde' and they are 18".)
After using this duo my hair feels silky smooth and soft. And not only is it shiny but and I can see a real difference in the lasting of my colour.
I last had my hair coloured at the end of August about 5 weeks ago and my blonde is still really bright and the tone is great.
I am soooo pleasantly surprised by the effect these products have had on my hair and I am so glad I went for it and tried them out! I definitely think this will be on my list of things to repurchase - hopefully it will help me stay away from the hairdressers (and the bleach) a little bit longer.... although unfortunately they will never cure my roots!
I believe these are £5.99 each from Boots but I'm sure prices vary and you can find out more about these here.
