Hard work, but worth it!

Just thought I'd post these to inspire anyone with faded, discoloured tubes that they can be brought back to life. The entire tubes had gone the pink colour evident in the pics, last 2 pics show the final result

Photoshop!.....lol only kidding, it was RibRevive, 18 green scourers and many, many hours of elbow grease. I'd read about it on here, so can confirm it certainly works. Applied the conditioner too. Delighted even tho I questioned my sanity when I started it!!
