I have used Malibu C for years to lift unwanted color in the hair by a shade or two while allowing the hair to feel conditioned. The results have been lightened shades by 1 or 2 levels as well as leaving a wonderful shine in the hair. I recently used the Malibu Blondes products for myself and found my hair is brighter, lighter and has great volume. My wine or raison color lowlights look brilliant. I followed up with my next shampoo with the Malibu C Miracle Repair and my hair is the brightest and silkiest I can ever remember it being. Thank you Malibu C for all your fabulous treatments!
