Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair Review

Hi Guys,

This week I am reviewing the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Three Step System. This consists of the shampoo (£17.50, 250ml), conditioner (£17.95, 250ml) and Triple Rescue spray (£17.95, 150ml). You can buy all three from LookFantastic.com for £40. I got these products from a blogging event and have had them for a while, but because my hair wasn't coloured I didn't use them. However, a couple of months ago I went for a hair cut and decided to get a subtle balyage done.

Because my hair is so dark in colour, if I want any colour put onto it, it has to be lightened first. This damages the hair slightly, but the things we do for beauty hey. Due to this, my hair isn't always left in the best condition. As the colour starts to fade I also get left with a horrible brassy undertone and straw like feel. Sometimes the colour washes out so quickly that I wonder if it's even worth colouring it.




On to the products! Paul Mitchell have been around for over 35 years and were the first hair care brand to pledge against animal testing. They specialise in professional hair care and the products are used by hairdressers all around the world. Paul Mitchell also have schools in 100 locations across the world so when it comes to hair care they really know what they are talking about.  I was really excited to try the products and see if they lived up to the claims of:

- Up to nine weeks of vibrant colour
- 88% less breakage
- Preventing thermal damage by 86%
- 59% more shine



All I am going to say is, I am very impressed by the results. After using the products for six weeks my colour hasn't faded. Ok, of course it has faded a little, but not to the extent it has faded in the past. The colour is definitely still there and hasn't turned that horrible brassy colour. It actually looks healthier and shiny. 

My hair is incredibly curly, dry and coarse and I straighten it often. I have been applying the Triple Rescue spray before straightening and it is working wonders because my hair isn't left looking dry,  but healthy and bouncy. I have also noticed less broken hairs. In addition to this, I have had at least five people comment on my hair and two have actually gone and asked their hairdressers for the same look.  I don't put that just down to the cut and colour by my fabulous hairdresser, but the way my hair is actually looking thanks to the Ultimate Colour Repair system. I would really advise using all three together and I don't think the results would be so visible if I hadn't. The only downside is the scent. It's not for me. It's hard to describe it, but doesn't really give my hair that fresh smell. However I can deal with it when my hair is left looking so good!

Here are a few pics I took a couple of weeks ago. My hair is still looking brown and there is no fade whatsoever. You may also recognise the pics from a previous make-up look post; click here for the make-up details.




Just incase you need any more incentive to use Paul Mitchell, the bran are very well known for giving back and they are currently donating $1 to one of their  favourite charities on our behalf! All you have to do is either post on Twitter or Instagram about how you like to give back with the hashtag #GivingIsMyStyle. To see the list of charities and for more information click here.

Have you ever tried Paul Mitchell products? What do you use for heat protection and to prevent fading colour?
