Superdrug Colour Effects Wash in Wash Out in Warm Copper Gold

17 Jul

This is my favourite hair discovery of the year, and it’s only £1.29 from Superdrug! It’s a wash in, wash out colour boost conditioner in a warm copper tone.


The shade is warm copper gold 7.34, which is a perfect colour for natural redheads and ginger haired girls who want to brighten up their red hair. If you want longer lasting results you’ll need to use a semi or permanent dye, this won’t dye your hair, it just boosts the colour – see How to dye hair red/ginger – but to brightening up your colour this is ideal.

It’s basically like those colour shampoo and conditioners you get, but rather than the usual blonde, brown or red this one’s for GINGERS! You just apply it after you’ve washed your hair, leave it for a while (I leave it on longer than the 5 minutes it suggests) then rinse out. Warning: the water will run orange!

I use it when my permanent tint starts to fade but I don’t have long enough roots to get it re-dyed. It comes in a travel-friendly 75ml size which makes it ideal for holidays and weekends away and it lasts way longer than the 3 washes suggested on the label too.

    Oh I used to use this stuff all the time. I used the slightly darker colour but stopped once I noticed that it smelled like carrots =s. Great for a boost, not for general use IMO. xx

      I feel the same! I recently found Boots had a shampoo and conditioner for red heads and was made up. I also made the bf buy me both :-)

    Hooray! I love the idea of this! I have a wonderful colour that my hairdresser uses, gives my slightly strawberry blonde ish red hair a real bright coppery glow but fades in 2wks at the most! Now I know how to stretch it out a little longer, without paying another huge salon bill. Thanks so much! Just found this website today and couldn’t be more thrilled.

    After reading this review (as well as others) I was super excited to order it, but so disappointed that they dont ship to the US :( where red hair products are dismal it seems in comparison to what I’ve found on UK sites
