Some of our followers have asked about purple shampoo. What is it and what does it do? Purple shampoo is used to tamp down brassiness in silver, blonde and light brown hair. My natural hair color is medium blonde with a lot of red undertones so it tends to get brassy easily. I’ve tried a number of purple shampoos and products and want to share my favorites-I won’t use anything else.
Brass Off Total Results by Matrix, Purple Shampoo and Conditioner: The shampoo is highly pigmented and works very well. I use it once or twice a week in between Olaplex (see post) to keep my blonde bright and blonde, not yellow or orange.
About once a month if I let my highlights go too long I will also use Bumble and Bumble Color Gloss in Cool Blonde. This sits on your dry hair for up to ten minutes before you shower. Wash and Condition as usual. This brightens up your hair and adds shine.
Both products allow me to go to the salon less frequently and can extend my color 2-3 months saving time and a lot of $$.
