Wanna know a completely believable fact about me? I’ve been dying my hair since I was 16. I know, try not to fall over in shock. Over the years, my locks have been a range of different colours from flamingo pink, to turquoise and a lot in between! But, I always go back to black with a slight blue sheen to make it extra shiny (my go-to colour is called Liquorice and that describes it perfectly).
Blue-black was the first colour I tried when we experimented in Gary’s mum’s kitchen, trying not to get blobs of dye on the linoleum (and my precious Converse!) and, by this point, I now think of it as my signature shade.
But, here’s the thing about dying your hair this dark: it has to look healthy and, for that, the colour has to be very intense. Don’t believe me? Dull black hair has a tendency to look like a bad wig and no-one wants to look like they just bought their hair from Amazon for a tenner, right?
All manner of things can leave hair with that faded look – heated styling, washing and blowdrying, the environment (I love sunshine as much as the next gal but, if I’m not careful, my hair colour will strip FAST!) and more can be pesky foes for your ‘do. Before you know it, your super fly hair is looking, um… super dry.
I’m therefore a big fan of trying different treatments and potions to keep my dye job looking fresh for as long as possible. Evo had initially caught my eye on social media a while back with their eye-catching visuals and products dedicated to giving your hair its groove back. So, when my favourite salon BLOW started to stock the innovative Evo Fabuloso line, I was looking forward to giving it a try at my next appointment.
Evo Fabuloso are where intense colour and oh-so-soft conditioning form the ultimate dream team! The treatments are completely custom and mixed for you at the salon, after you pick out your colour match.
For me, this was the best part! I was presented with a range of raven shades to look at – from Blackcurrant (red hue), to Cola (chocolate hue) and even my beloved Blue Black. This attention to detail is what makes Evo a great brand match for BLOW. After all, if they have multiple options of black, they’re bound to have a match for almost everyone! Soon, I had my own bottle to take away.
Using Evo Fabuloso at home is an easy way to give a boost of intensity and shine, without having to make one of those emergency appointments! The product is somewhere between a conditioner and dye top-up, so leaving it on a bit longer before rinsing out is recommended (about 20 minutes should do it, so grab something to read or belt out a few shower classics to fill the wait time…).
If you fancy checking out the full range of aftercare from Evo, be sure to pop into BLOW Shawlands or Finnieston for a chat, or ask the stylist during your next appointment!
Here’s to keeping coloured hair looking less Amazon and more Ah-mazing (see what I did there?!).
