This Hair Transformations series has been one of my favourites ever on Hair Romance.
Now we’re at part 3 and you get to meet the beautiful Lana and see how her hair, and life changed in 2017.
The final results appear subtle but I could feel the difference in Lana’s hair. Check out the video we made below.
Missed Parts 1 & 2?
Catch up on the series here:
Sometimes it’s the smallest changes that make the biggest difference.
That’s what I love about hair.
And I love when I find a product that can change your hair, fast.
Throughout this series I’ve been working with Schwarzkopf and their fantastic team to treat some of my wonderful readers.
We’ve been featuring the new Colour Specialist range because it’s the first consumer product to feature Omegaplex.
This new Plex technology has been one of the biggest hits in salons and is now available at home.
But what if you don’t want to colour your hair?
How can you use Omegaplex in your hair routine and why would you?
Lana has been a long-time reader of Hair Romance. Like me, she’s had fun with her hair trying lots of colours over the years.
However 2017 has been one of the biggest years ever for her.
Lana turned 30 and had a beautiful son named Elliot.
(Side note: I got to meet him & he’s the cutest!)
But this has meant life has completely changed and Lana’s priorities have definitely shifted.
She doesn’t have the time she used to have to spend on her hair. In fact she hasn’t coloured her hair since having Elliot seven months ago.
Lana doesn’t need a major change.
She needs something she can do every day without having to worry.
For Lana, Omegaplex will strengthen her hair and bring more vibrancy and volume.
But like I said, you don’t have to colour your hair to have Omegaplex in your life.

One of my favourite products
I brought in an extra hair product just for Lana:
My favourite in the Schwarzkopf range – the Nordic Blonde Toner.
Don’t underestimate the power of a toner to freshen up your hair. It can breathe life back into your hair and cleans out any brassy tones.
In combination with the Fibre Therapy range, her hair is feeling so much stronger.
Lana’s hair recipe
How to get Lana’s fresh style at home:
- First wash your hair with the Fibre Therapy shampoo. Lightly towel-dry your hair.
- Then apply the Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde Toner and leave in for 10-30 minutes, depending on your hair.
- Rinse out the toner and apply Fibre Therapy conditioner to your hair for 1-2 minutes.
- Rinse your hair and after towel drying, finish with the Fibre Therapy leave-in treatment spray.
How often should you use a toner?
Toners balance the colour in your hair.
They are based on the colour wheel artists use and are such an easy way to refresh your hair and add in shine.
You choose a colour from the opposite side of the wheel:
In this case, the purple/blue tones in the Nordic Blonde Toner cancel out any yellow/orange brassiness coming through in your hair.
You can use toners every two to four weeks depending on how you like your colour to look.
But the key to styling is the Fibre Therapy range:
The leave–in treatment is something that Lana can do really quickly on wet or dry hair and it helps with strengthening her hair on the daily.
Omegaplex in your everyday hair routine
This unique and innovative ingredient works very differently to normal conditioning treatments.
It’s not just a conditioner…
…it’s a bond restructurer.
And when added during the colouring process, Plex helps to maintain the hair’s strength and integrity.
It can also be use to rebuild hair in your everyday care routine.
The Schwarzkopf Extra Care Fibre Therapy range includes Omegaplex in their shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment.
So even if you don’t want to colour your hair, your hair can still feel the benefits of Omegaplex, like thicker, stronger hair.

Postpartum hair loss is real
Lana has noticed that since having a baby, she’s had some postpartum hair loss.
It’s more common than you realise, with up to 90% of mothers experiencing some sort of hair loss after pregnancy.
Luckily though, it’s only temporary.
But it can feel like it’s taking forever to get back to normal. Average recovery times are 6-12 months.
In long hair like Lana’s, this extra hair loss often means a lot of tangles and knots.
You need to treat your hair gently and use a leave-in conditioner before trying to detangle your hair. Fibre Therapy is perfect for wet or dry hair as it not only conditions but strengthens your hair from within.
I think Lana’s hair looks thicker and stronger already, and you can feel the difference in her hair.

Hair Romance says
Hi Tracey, I’m not sure but I would try looking on Amazon x
Any idea where we can purchase the toner in the US? I checked out the link that you posted but there it a $10 shipping fee. Thanks!
Hair Romance says
Hi Melissa, I’m sorry I don’t think it’s available in the US. I can’t find anything similar. You could try a purple/violet shampoo which helps to tone blonde hair xx
Sherri Koster says
All 3 color makeovers are wonderful! What beautiful, deserving models!
I just wanted to mention that there seems to be some missing information in the how-to section, “How to get Lana’s fresh style at home:” steps 1 & 2.
1. First wash your hair with the (???) . Lightly towel-dry your hair.
2. Then apply the (???) and leave in for 10-30 minutes, depending on your hair.
Does the toner have lightening ability? It seems Lana’s roots were lighter too.
Hair Romance says
Thanks Sherri! The details are in the post – we used the Fibre Therapy shampoo on Lana’s hair and the Nordic Blonde Toner. The toner doesn’t lighten hair, I think it looks darker in the first picture as the contrast with the blonde is much stronger. With a softer shade at the ends of her hair, Lana’s roots blend better. The toner is great for any highlighted hair or if you want to balance out yellow/orange tones back to a neutral shade xx
Sherri Koster says
Thank you! I’ll have to look into the toners more for the future.
I would love to see more good job on your hair Lana
