Frequently Asked Questions about Products

Brilliant Brunette® Hair Care

Are Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® and Radiant Red® products only for those who color their hair?
No. The John Frieda® Hair Care experts recognize that blondes, brunettes and redheads, whether natural or color-treated, have different care and texture needs. Within the Brilliant Brunette® product portfolio, a brunette with colour-treated hair may choose the Brilliant Brunette® Colour Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner to help lock in rich, glossy colour and multi-dimensional tones. We recommend that individuals with natural or highlighted brunette try our Brilliant Brunette® Multi-Tone Revealing Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner. These products will rehydrate and revitalize dull, dry, brittle hair for renewed silkiness and exceptional shine.
Why is Brilliant Brunette® Colour Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner better for my brunette than other general colour protection products?
The John Frieda® Hair Care experts recognize that blondes, brunettes and redheads have different needs. The Brilliant Brunette® Colour Protecting products were specially formulated to address the unique way brunette colour fades – which can get monotone, lackluster, and turn orange/golden (or warmer) in tone overtime. These formulas contain a break-through technology that will help maintain your rich, multidimensional brunette for up to 10 weeks after you colour treat it.
Will this product color my hair?
No, none of the Brilliant Brunette® shampoos, conditioners or stylers deposit any color. Instead, they work to make hair richer, radiant and more dimensional with each use. If you are looking for a product that adds colour, try John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour or our John Frieda® Luminous Colour Glaze for Brunette hair.
Will this product darken my blonde?
No, none of the Brilliant Brunette® shampoos, conditioners or stylers will noticeably darken blonde hair. Blondes who use Brilliant Brunette® care items will experience multi-dimensional richness without darkening or dulling your natural or color-treated hair. However, the John Frieda® Hair Care experts work hard to understand the uniqueness of each hair colour and to develop products to best meet those individual needs. For optimal blonde results, you should consider trying the Sheer Blonde® line.
Can I use the Brilliant Brunette® products on my black hair?
Absolutely. Brilliant Brunette® products work perfectly to bring out the natural beauty of black hair. It is recommended that if you have colour-treated black hair, you use Brilliant Brunette® Colour Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner to help lock in rich, glossy colour and multi-dimensional tones. We recommend that individuals with natural black hair try our Brilliant Brunette® Multi-Tone Revealing Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner. If you are just looking for a boost of shine, our Luminous Glaze Clear Shine will intensify shine and dramatically smooth texture.
Can I use the Brilliant Brunette® products on my gray hair?
Yes, Brilliant Brunette® products can be used on gray or graying hair. The same way as it works with brunette, our formulas cleanse and perfect each strand by washing away dullness. Immediately, your gray hair will come alive with extraordinary lustre and shine. However, gray hair is most similar to blonde hair as it is naturally transparent, which means that buildup will immediately show, making the hair look brassy or dull. The Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating line removes the buildup that comes from the calcium and phosphorus in our water, so that your naturally transparent hair glistens and shines. It is recommended that if you have gray hair, you use Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner for Lighter Shades. The moisturizing agents in these products help to replenish dry hair with extra moisture, and work to restore dazzling highlights.
How can I achieve ultimate-shine without leaving my hair greasy?
To achieve ultimate-shine you should use Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner. Both are formulated with a Shine-Infusing Complex that lightly coats the hair for dramatically increased shine. Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine shampoo and conditioner can be used daily and is ideal for all shades of natural, color-treated or highlighted brunette hair. To seal in shine use Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shine Shock® Perfecting Glosser. This lightweight creme delivers exquisite and highly reflective shine, while instantly smoothing flyaways and sealing split ends.
