Now that I'm blonde, I have to use different products to keep my color looking and feeling fresh. The #BlondeAmbitionTour series gives you an in-depth look at the products and treatments I'm trying, and lets you know whether or not they work!

I really didn't realize that going blonde would be quite so much work. Sure, I knew I'd have to do more maintenance than I did as a brunette or a redhead. (Those dark brown roots? Not so cute with blonde tresses.) But I didn't know I'd have to completely change up my product regimen! Enter the Redken Blonde Idol Collection.

I had noticed that my color started fading, since I (oops) wasn't using shampoo and conditioner specifically for blonde hair. Honestly, I wasn't even using products for color-treated hair. (I guess it's my own fault.) So when I discovered this collection, I simply HAD to check it out and see if the three products would revitalize my color.

I'm here to tell you that this collection WORKS. The Redken Blonde Idol Collection is formulated with an exclusive Kera-Bright System to balance, brighten and beautify blonde hair, and that's exactly what will happen when you start using these products. The collection includes:

Redken Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free Shampoo: Since I only wash my hair once or twice a week, I normally need to shampoo twice for ultimate results. This one lathers up and cleanses so well that I actually only need to shampoo once! I've found that some Redken shampoos make my hair feel like straw, but this one keeps my locks feeling soft and smooth.

Redken Blonde Idol Mask: I'm always a fan of a hair mask, but now that I'm blonde I need it even more. My hair has been incredibly dry since I went lighter and sometimes it's so gnarled I can't get my hands through it! Not so with this mask, which nourishes and moisturizes my thirsty locks and makes it easier than ever to comb through.

Redken Blonde Idol BBB Spray: I've always needed to use a leave-in conditioner for added detangling. Recently I've fallen in love with conditioning sprays rather than creams -- and this has quickly become one of my favorites. My hair is frizz-free, super silky and -- the best part -- tangle free!

I started noticing a difference after just one wash -- and, to further my amazement over my lighter, brighter locks, I started getting comments from coworkers and friends asking if I'd freshened up my color the very next day! Suffice it to say all three products changed my hair game. Thank goodness for that!
