Schwarzkopf Professional expert mousse - vibrant red hair!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday! Today I'm doing a review on my newest red hair product.
It's by Schwarzkopf Professional and I got it at my hairdressers the other day. The bottle says: "Igora expert mousse 5-88". It's a semi permanent mousse color. I don't dye my hair myself, but I did want to try this mousse. (I also heard that, when you dye your hair yourself, it's best to use a semi permanent product.)

Okay so to start off, a little update on my red hair. If you really want a bright, vibrant red, you have to continue to dye it very frequently (which means it's quite expensive). Red hair is hard to keep and you have to change a lot of things about your hair routine. Now, I'm rather happy with the results I've had with my red hair, it's almost been one month since getting my hair dyed in a brighter red colour and my roots are barely visible.

This picture was taken a week ago.
The reason I didn't take one today is because I'm sick and I look aweful.
Please excuse me. Anyways, this is how my hair looks now.

I'm convinced that it also has to do with this mousse I've been using. Let me tell you, it's only a little bottle and it's pricey, but if keeping my hair vibrant red and nice means using this (and only having to dye my hair once a month or maybe once in six weeks- which is exeptional for people with red hair), I will continue to use it. So far, I have used it two or three times.

It's simple to use. You wash your hair, dry it a bit with a towel, shake the bottle and then apply this mousse.
If you leave it on 3-5 minutes, it'll act like a colour refleshing and conditioning mousse. If you leave it on between 15-20 minutes, it's an intensive colour treatement. Please do be careful. I noticed that my hands look really red after applying this, so don't touch anything if you want to avoid stains. I wash my hands right after applying the mousse and leave it in for about 15 minutes. Also, make sure not to wear your favourite clothes. Even if your hair is towel dried, it might still drip a bit and you don't want to get stains all over your prettiest shirt.
After the 15 minutes, I rinse until the water runs clear.

I am really happy with this product (of course I do use other products like red hair conditioners and such to protect my hair colour). I do admit that it's a bit expensive, but I knew from the start that red hair needs to be touched up often and that I was going to need more pricey, special products.

The bottle is almost $25,30 (which is around €19)

Have a great day!

  2. It looks really nice, I like the colour. I have been dying my own hair since I was 13 so that is not a problem for me, but semi-permanent is a good idea if you decide to change your mind...anyway, looks like a good product.

  6. Can't get enough with these posts ! Just following you now !!!

  7. I bought it for 7 euros in my color. The most expensive shade I saw was 10 euros, so maybe you might consider checking local Beauty suppliers or the original schwarzkopf shop on Amazon :)

  8. Anyone that has vibrant red hair has got to try the red color mask by icecream at shoppers drugmart! Keeping your red has never been so easy and inexpensive! $17 and you put it in for 5 mins after you wash your hair and rince it out. It will last you at least a month!


Keep it classy ♥ Thanks for reading!
