oVertone Daily Conditioner Review

Okay so we’ve all been there– we’ve all fallen down that hole on Instagram or Pinterest of hair color ideas for the fall. Except they all seem nearly impossible to obtain at home or way too expensive to get done/maintain professionally. That’s when you start falling down a different path: at-home hair color. Except if you’re like me, you only think about the horrors that box dye can bring ( re: Brad Mondo’s Hairdresser React’s series). That’s when I discovered oVertone– a hair color system that works differently by placing pigment rather than permanently dying your hair or using bleach. 

I wasn’t ready to commit to any big hair color differences (despite my unhealthy obsession with their original rose gold and pastel silver looks) so I did some digging and learned about their daily conditioners. They usually are used for maintaining color in between full-on color application (using their very different, pigmented Color Conditioner), but shades like pastel blue and pastel purple can be great for toning down brassiness. So I placed my order for those two daily conditioner shades (although, you really only need one), and patiently awaited my shipment. Disclaimer though, I did buy the pastel silver Color Conditioner in case I really just want to go for it. 

The products arrived as predicted by their shipping and came with a pair of disposable gloves for the silver dye and an instruction sheet on how to use the products (which is recyclable, fyi)!

I cracked open the daily conditioners and immediately noticed the minty smell. It’s not overwhelming, but definitely there. I did the strand test and didn’t notice any huge change, so I decided to go for it and use it all over my strands, mixing equal parts of pastel blue and purple. After letting the conditioners sit for a few minutes before rinsing, they left my hair feeling soft and clean with no gross residue and didn’t stain my hands despite turning them purple for a hot second. 

I love the results I got– they are subtle, but I noticed a change and so did my roommates. My hair definitely had its brassiness toned down! The results lasted for a couple of days, so it’s not a one-time solution (remember, these products deposit pigment and don’t have the same lasting power as a permanent dye would). I have already used the conditioners a few more times and love the results I see. I definitely would recommend trying out the daily conditioners to help maintain color (they have both bright colors and natural tones) or to tone down orange/brassy hues!
