Review: Maria Nila Black Colour Refresh

You may have seen my previous post on the Maria Nila Shampoo and Conditioner which I thought were excellent! This time around I have the Colour Refresh Conditioner that deposits black colourant on your hair and conditions at the same time.
I had pretty high hopes for this product as I loved the other ones so much, but I'm not so sure it's as great as the others. This might just be due to the fact that I can't really tell if it has worked or not?! Maybe if I had blonde hair and was using the pink version I would be able to make my mind up, but as I need it to keep my black hair topped up I'm not so sure. 

The product is really simple to use. Simply wash your hair, towel dry and apply the conditioner. It says to leave it on for 3-10 mins, I usually leave on for 10 so I can get the most out of it. Then simply wash it out. If you're after just a hint or wash of colour I would leave it on for 3-5 minutes. Maria Nila claims the colour will last 4-10 washes. 

So whether you're looking to top up your colour or wanting to try a colour before taking the plunge to make it permenant, then this is the product for you!

I've found it difficult to find Maria Nila products in the UK, but I can always rely on the Sally store in Bristol high street. I bought it for £16.99, however this is more than what I would have liked to pay for it. Either way it has lasted a long time and I still have at least half a bottle left, even though I bought it about half a year ago! 

There's currently 13 colours to choose from on the Maria Nila website:
Autum Red 6.60
Azure 0.11
Black 2.0
Bright Copper 7.40
Bright Red 0.66
Brown Hazel 7.03 
Cacao Intense 4.10
Golden Blonde 10.30
Pearl Silver 0.20
Pink Pop 0.06
Sand 8.31
Vivid Violet 0.22
White Mix 0.00 

I would definately recommend this to anyone looking to dabble in different hair colours, or topping up already existing colour which isn't 'natural'. 

Don't forget to use gloves or you'll be walking around with stained hands all day!
