The Benefits of Using a Purple Shampoo on Blonde Hair

redken blondage shampoo at gavin ashley hair salon bury st edmundsUsing a coloured shampoo on ice white blonde hair or cool platinum blonde shades helps to keep your hair colour looking strong and vibrant in between salon visits. Purple shampoo helps to fight the warm tones in your hair that try and peek through after your hair has been lightened.

Similar to a toner you can use colour shampoos at home to help with tonal imbalances in the hair. A toner can change a brassy blonde hair colour and neutralise unwanted yellow tones in just a matter of minutes. If the hair contains a yellow tone, a pigmented purple shampoo is going to neutralize that warmth.

What Causes My Blonde Hair To Go Brassy?

Brassy hair colour is often the result of a bleaching or lifting service and is where the underlying pigment naturally present in your hair is exposed. For lightened blonde hair, the underlying pigment is yellow, and for lightened brown to black hair, the underlying pigments are orange and red.

How Do I Remove Unwanted Tones From My Blonde Hair Colour?

The team of skilled hair colour experts at Gavin Ashley Hairdressing advise the best ways to remove brassy, orange and red tones from your hair and maintain that perfect clean blonde shade at home is to use Redken’s Blondage shampoo and conditioner alongside your regular shampoo.

How Often Should I use a Pigmented Colour Shampoo?

Ensure you only use the Blondage shampoo and conditioner no more than twice a week as when you eliminate too much yellow from the hair, it can look darker.
