To all my brassy blondes out there… I come with good news! If you feel like you get to that dreaded 5th or 6th week after you get your blonde done and you feel your color is dull and orange, purchase some purple shampoo (you will thank me, I promise). Here are your options….. and yes I have tried all of them:
Shimmer Lights– about $10 from any beauty supply
Aveda’s Blue Malva Shampoo and/or Conditioner– about $30 each (if you need to choose one, go for the shampoo)
Rene Furterer “Mild Silver Shampoo” (it’s purple… trust me)- about $25
You can use it once or twice a week. It neutralizes the unwanted brassiness and makes your blonde bright. Leave it on for about 5 minutes (ideally with a plastic cap over it), rinse and then style how you normally would.
