Lookfantastic’s Pick of the Month for October: Paul Mitchell

Hey everyone, I’m this week’s Lookfantastic guest blogger. I write a blog called Velvet Blush (, and just like many of you, I could do without the wind playing havoc with my hair! I have thick, long frizzy hair that’s very prone to falling out and coupled with the heavy rain, this is not a good combo. Therefore, I’m finding it more important than ever to treat my hair with some quality products. My hair is a big part of me and I want it looking good. Paul Mitchell has a vast range of products for every single hair type, and with them, I’m guaranteed to find something to solve my hair problems. They’re definitely work looking into if you want the best for your hair! So without any further ado, let’s take a look at the Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Shampoo.

With winter fast approaching, and harsh winds making a comeback, it’s time to give your hair some extra TLC! Therefore, Lookfantastic’s Pick of the Month for October had to be the Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Shampoo!

We all dread that moment where, after doing our hair ever so carefully, we step outside the door only for the wind to cast it into a disheveled, dry and frizzy state. This is where the Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Shampoo comes in – it’s packed full of proteins, amino acids and Panthenol, making it a great little health kick for your hair!

Not many will know this, but Panthenol is a sensational ingredient in hair care, as it’s great at retaining moisture and thereby stopping your hair from becoming dehydrated. Panthenol glides over your ends, making them look shinier, whilst eliminating split ends, as well as detangling hair. It’s derived from Vitamin B-5, so it has to be a good thing, right?!

As well as all of those benefits, it strengthens your hair by adding elasticity and body, which in turn, makes your hair appear thicker. It’s the gift that just simply keeps on giving!

The Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Shampoo also contains sunscreens, which offer UVA and UVB protection, as well as working to prevent colour fading, combined with the use of sunflower oils. It’s perfect for preserving the vibrancy of your hair colour, and with this shampoo, you have no excuse not to switch up your winter colour.

My top tip to get the maximum results out of this shampoo would be to follow with an intensive conditioner on a weekly basis, such as the Paul Mitchell Super Strong Treatment or the Paul Mitchell Super Charged Moisturiser. These are fantastic for reviving your hair all year round.

All that’s left to decide now is your winter colour. So, what will it be this season?!

As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
