As you may or may not know, I moonlight as a mermaid. So I have to keep my blue and teal tinted locks fresh. Therefore, watching Marlena from Makeup Geek TV on youtube in one of her "Current Obsessions" videos, I seen her talking about the oVertone weekly treatment. Which is a conditioner that deposits hair color as well as hyrdrates it. It is not "hair dye" it is full on "color depositing conditioner". From the oVertone website it says: "They are designed to gradually replace the color you lose every time you wash your hair, so your color is perfect every single day, whether you were in a salon four days ago or four months ago." They literally have EVERY color of the rainbow. Pink, Yellow, Teal, several shades of Blue, etc etc. I got "Extreme Blue". This stuff is royal blue as soon as you open it up. There are some things you should know though.
You have to wear gloves to apply this or you will stain your hands.
Also be careful when applying it, because it will also stain your shower or tub lol (mine is)
I clipped my hair up so it wouldn't stain my shoulders and back.
This has to absorb in the hair for 10-15 minutes, then you can wash it out (with warm water I might add)
These are pigmented conditioners but with no harmful chemicals
The color in them are "semi-permanent"
There is Pastel, Vibrant, and Extreme lines
Pastel is 20% of color
Vibrant is 60% color
Extreme is 100% color for super bright color
The things I really dig is that:
A) it's a very nice conditioner and my hair feels amazing.
B) it does deposit color FOR SURE.
C) this is a weekly treatment so you literally get to "refresh" and deposit your color on a weekly basis.
D) If you aren't into the intense weekly treatment, which is more pigment and more hydration, they also offer daily conditioners. Which is more mild and deposits less pigment into the hair while still being hydrating. I'm viewing it as more as a maintenance for your current color.
These are GREAT conditioners on their own. I mean really impressive. As far as color depositing goes or a color change I really recommend doing that in a salon first and then using these to help maintain and give it a kick. You could technically dye your hair with this I guess but if you aren't super blonde you'd need to bleach your hair and I only advise professionals when you need to lighten your hair. You won't need to "dye" your hair as much if you use these. Which is awesome and healthier for your beautiful locks.
The price point for these products are fair in my opinion.
Daily Conditioners are $17 and $18 depending on the line you get
Go Deep Weekly Treatments are $28-$29
Complete Systems are $45-$47
Also if you are just wanting to try these they offer trial sizes for $8 for 2oz. There are 21 vegan colors total, I believe.
This was after the first use of the Go Deep Weekly Treatment in Extreme Blue. As you can see my hair is a steel blue and bright blue mixed from mid shaft and down. I thoroughly, love this stuff. It makes life so much easier, especially when you don't have time to get your color retouched every 4-6wks, or if you just hate waiting an hour or two for your hair to get finished at the salon.
So I talked with oVertone about some questions I had and they were super helpful.
1st: they totally recommend you seeking out a stylist first if you want a dramatic change like brown to light pink for example. Then using their products to boost or maintain your hair. Even though you can "dye" your hair with their products. Toning is a big thing to consider as well so never hurts to ask a professional.
2nd: you can use the daily conditioner everyday as well as the weekly treatment once a week together. You can even mix shades like using the Go Deep as your base color and then a daily conditioner in another shade for a splash of color in a different hue. You can even use one conditioner color one day and another color the next. Very versatile.
3rd: they recommend sulfate free shampoos as far as what shampoo you use. (The one I use is AMIKA COLOR PHERFECTION SHAMPOO. It's sulfate free.)
They have a blog as well with AWESOME posts and really informative and helpful information so I'm gonna link it here it's really in depth and answers pretty much any questions or concerns you may have.
These pics above are from the oVertone website, they're swatches of extreme blue Go Deep. The pictures below are just different pictures of my hair since using the Go Deep Weekly Treatment. Keep in mind my hair is like a bolyage/ombre style where the bottom pieces were lightened by a professional first and then colored blue. This is helping maintain my blue shades and it's doing a damn good job at it.
