YouTuber Yana Irbe said: "My lighter pieces toned like nothing else", after using the shampoo.

While vlogger Lydia Taylor added: "I think it looks brighter and less brassy. My brother thought I got highlights, so that's when you know it works."

The shampoo won't have any effect on brown locks, but those with balayage and highlights can also use it to give their blonde hairs a boost – especially during the gloomy winter months.
