Evo Fabuloso Colour Intensifying Conditioner in Mahogany, R465.
What they say: a colour enhancing conditioner that provides an instant hair colour combined with a nourishing treatment to condition, repair, add shine, instantly tone and intensify hair colour.
What I say: This is one of those very rare products that sounded far too good to be true, but was actually better than I ever expected. And I have a feeling that this is going to be a trend with every product from Evo.
It does exactly what it says on the bottle – it enhances your hair colour, making it look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon. You wash and towel dry your hair before spreading 4 – 8 pumps (depending on the length of your hair) through your locks with a comb or your fingers (you’ll have to don gloves to do this, unless you want stained hands). Leave on for 3 minutes, then rinse until the water runs clear. It’s so quick and easy to do; I still can’t believe how well it works!
I was quite worried when I first rinsed my hair, as it felt very dry and straw-like. But once it was dry, it was soft, bouncy and ridiculously shiny. I used the Mahogany shade to revive the red and copper tones in my hair, and it honestly looked like I had just had my colour done. The boyf actually asked if I’d been to the hairdresser – quite a feat in itself, as boys rarely notice subtle changes like this.
The packaging is fab, too. The pump is substantial, and doesn’t look like it will break or clog on you. And although the price tag might seem hefty, it really isn’t for the 250ml you get – you only have to do this every week or two, so one bottle will last months and months.
This is the first product I have tried from the Ozzie brand, and if this is anything to go by, this is the start of a beautiful friendship. When you get your hands on your own, make sure you read every word on the packaging – it’s so funny and witty, you’ll be crying with laughter in the shower.
