If you have recently been to your favourite salon and left with a beautiful blonde shade, the last thing you want is for yucky brassy tones to come through or for your colour to fade.
In the salon your hair stylist will have applied a toner to help counter the risk of gold, brassy tones and these toners will last around 3 – 4 weeks as they are not permanent.
To avoid the last few weeks before your next colour appointment being a disaster of unwanted golden tones, we recommend adding a shampoo from our fantastic range of purple shampoos that will help keep your beautiful blonde shade longer.
How do Purple Shampoo and Conditioners Work?
It’s all about the colour theory: purple sits opposite yellow (brassy) on the colour wheel, so when they’re mixed, they off-set each other for a more neutral shade. When applied to the hair, a small amount of this purple pigment is absorbed, and the violet hues neutralise brassy undertones for a cooler colour.
We have put together the best stylist based recommendations below that are all full tried and tested and guaranteed to work!
