Purple shampoo and I have a love-hate relationship.
I love purple shampoo to help kick brass’s butt and keep those warm tones at bay.
But alas we have blondeoholics who overuse the purple shampoo which in turn makes the hair very dull and start to look silver or purple. When that happens you lose your brightness and wonder where it went. Truth be told, you have WAY more brightness when you have yellow in the hair. Yeah, I know, I said yellow. That doesn’t mean you need a ton of it, but it is the natural pigment left over when you bleach hair.
But when your hair has too much purple in it, and it won’t come out with a detox – then stylists have no choice but to bleach it. And we don’t want to do that because that is way more damaging. If that same pattern continues, your hair will break off and it won’t look pretty. So I’m here to steer you away from that.
Think about it this way: when the sun is out, everyone is cheery and happy and bright. Then those grey sky’s cover the sky and everything looks dull and feels dull. And it’s because it is.
My recommendation is to use your purple shampoo once a week or once every two weeks. If your hair is already looking dull, stop using it for a few weeks. Your hair will start to look brighter and you’ll feel really happy about it.
When in doubt use maxi wash to get any extra buildup of dullness out of your hair. I recommend replacing your purple shampoo with a repairing shampoo and conditioner to keep your blonde healthy, shiny, and hydrated.
