Lets talk about The Colour Purple....
If you have blonde hair, highlights or are brunette with lightened areas and you like the more ashy, cooler tones of blonde we highly recommend using a purple shampoo.
Every day's a school day!! 🎓
Not all toning shampoos are the same, we call them all "purple" some are actually blue, some are violet and they vary greatly from brand to brand. To pick the right one for you firstly you will need to know what you are trying to neutralise..
Use the colour wheel to guide you.
If you have orangey tones🍊 you will need need a blue shampoo as blue and orange are opposite each other on the colour wheel 🎡 if you have yellow tones🍋, you will need purple🍇. So, when you know what to pick don't be afraid to open up the bottle and look at the colour.
You can use the colour wheel to correct and neutralise other hair disasters such as green tones, lets face it no one wants broccoli green hair 🥦. You can correct green by using red, which is opposite on the colour wheel.... Believe it or not good old fashioned Heinz Tomato Ketchup🍅 is great for hair that's had too much chlorine, put it on your hair and leave it for 10 minutes then give it a good shampoo and condition (to get rid of the smell!!)
Back to Purple...
How to use it..
💜Purple shampoo is not designed to clean your hair so always use your usual shampoo to start.
☔Then concentrate the purple shampoo in the areas that need it the most. Leave the shampoo for a few minutes to work its magic. If its still too brassy then next time, leave it on for a little longer.
🍇Do NOT use purple shampoo everyday if you wash your hair every day. You will get a grey build up very quickly. Every other time you wash your hair should be enough or less.
💜Purple shampoo is very drying, make sure you condition and use a weekly treatment mask like MoroccanOil Hydrating Mask available to buy from the salon. This mask is the best, use it once a week to keep your hair in top condition.
